Yes, I went and saw yet another superhero movie. I can’t help it, I have always loved a good superhero flick ever since I was a kid. “Captain Marvel” is a good superhero flick. While not a “knock your socks off awesome” entry, It’s a thoroughly fun watch from beginning to end. Set in the 1990s, before the events in “The Avengers”, the film introduces Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Danvers, played by Brie Larson, had been taken in and trained by the Kree in the Starforce Military after being involved in an accident that wiped her memory. She ends up crashing to Earth during a battle with the Skrulls and begins to discover that she is not who she believes she is. With help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, Danvers begins to unravel the truth about her past as well as uncovering an even bigger secret.
The story and action sequences are on par with most other MCU hero origin stories. A good amount of humor to balance out the serious tones. Great visual effects. A good lead in to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame and very fun to watch. I score it at 7.5 out of 10.

Did you ever have a dream? Did you ever have a goal in life?
Well, have you?
Why do people who choose to follow alternative diets have to try and push their views onto others? Vegans can be the most annoying, but then there are the vegetarians, the strict carnivores, and then the gluten free even though you don’t have celiac people and so on. People get so holier than thou and believe everyone should do as they do to make this planet a better place. Many make a point to constantly announce it to the world. News flash guys, the only thing you’re doing for the planet is annoying everyone else. Humans, like many other animals, are naturally omnivores and have been since we crawled out of the primordial soup. Our bodies for the most part were designed to take in nutrients from both animals and vegetation within reasonable balance.
Going vegetarian or vegan is not going to do the planet any less damage than we are already doing with pollution and consuming more natural resources than the earth can replenish in a short amount of time. Industrialization is killing the world, not hamburgers. If you wish to be a strict herbivore then more power to you, I may even join you for a nice vegan/vegetarian meal (as long is there is absolutely no soy involved) from time to time because that’s just what an omnivore would be willing to do for their friends but don’t expect me to convert. I do agree that we should stop force feeding animals or pumping them with drugs to artificially enhance their size or procreation rate, and that they should be kept in better conditions but not eating animal products is not going to get that particular message across. If we could go back to a time of hunters and gatherers and nothing is so overly processed it would be great, but that will never happen. Eat what you feel is natural for you and quit preaching.
I love my sister but sometimes I don’t think she really thinks about things all the way. Then again maybe I analyze the hell out of things too much, except for maybe some comments I leave on Facebook when I’m feeling down. Yesterday I made a comment on a post made by our half sister, something along the lines of happiness and success and how I haven’t obtained any of that yet. Hey, it’s true. Well my sister chimes in with, “You’re still young & not married & no rugrats. You can still go to school or online classes for a new career & Aunt Theresa said before to come stay w/her & try to start over. Sell some stuff, put some stuff in storage, take necessities & start fresh.”
Just a few minor problems with that oh sister of mine that you just don’t get. Nobody seems to get it actually. I don’t have the money to just up and go or else I would have done that already and be living my dream. Just because I don’t have a litter of children (thanks for rubbing that in by the way) does not mean I have a lot of money. Moving requires money. School requires money. Storage requires money. Sell stuff? What I got is not worth all that much. Also, there is no guarantee of finding a job if I just up and move to somewhere. Get me a job or $50,000 sis, that will be a good start. As for my aunt, as much as I love her I don’t think I could live with her. For one thing, my aunt is a devout Christian and would not look kindly upon my Agnostic views. Yes dear readers, I am Agnostic though I respect all religions. Secondly, she is a close-minded Trump supporter. And from what I can tell her house is full enough as it is with at least one of her children and a bunch of grandchildren always around. I think we would clash too much.
Sometimes those on the outside think there are easy solutions for everything when in reality it is all easier said than done.
I feel tired sometimes. Not sleepy tired, just tired of everything. Some days I cannot even get motivated to get out of bed. All motivation seems to be getting sapped away again. I hate these feelings.
Why should I have to give up my dreams just because everyone else gave up on theirs?
