Friendships and the Importance of Communication

Friendships and the Importance of Communication

On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I throw it back to October 17 when I got to sit down with two of my incredible friends in Philadelphia, Melody and Leen to discuss a topic that’s very near to our hearts. We talk about how we all met and what it’s like to carry on a long distance friendship all while giving our input on what makes a healthy friendship. The good, the bad, the ugly? We get into it. The podcast gets a little bit emotional as we share some of the struggles we’ve gone through in our lives (i.e. depression, anxiety, grief) and the kind of help/space that’s appreciated.

Autumn at Trader Joe’s

Autumn at Trader Joe’s

It sounds like a Hallmark film doesn’t it? Good, because that’s what I was going with when I chose this title. The real time of new beginnings and cozy feelings is finally upon us again and all is right in the world now. And hello yes, I’m that one person in your life that perhaps loves pumpkin everything a little too much, but when did pumpkins ever hurt anybody? Ugh. A mood. On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I review all my favorite fall/pumpkin goodies from the greatest place on earth, Trader Joe’s, from cheeses to crackers, the most heavenly salsa, and all the cookies, too.

Christopher Robin Review

Marvelous Geeks Podcast Episode 10: Christopher Robin Review

christopherrobin

Disney’s Christopher Robin was one of the most darling films of the year — a time for celebration for any of us who’ve grown up with the noteworthy stories of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. It was a film about the struggles in life and the most significant part of it, love. It was a film meant to inspire in every way, shape or form. And it did, it definitely did where my own life is concerned so be sure to check out our brand new podcast to hear more.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

guernsey

“Do you suppose it’s possible for us to belong to someone before we’ve met them? If so, I belong to you or you to me, or me simply to the spirit I found among you in Guernsey. […] And hope that if books do have the power to bring people together, this one may work its magic.”

Yes, yes I do suppose – and that’s certainly the case with a film as remarkably captivating as this one. If you know anything about me, I hope it’s how much I adore a story of triumph and adventure cobbled with a romance that’s to be treasured for all eternity. I’m a complete sap, that’s a given, but The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is the first period-drama film I’ve ardently adored since Jane Austen adaptations. And that seems oddly fitting because the film’s very own hero/writer is a fan of the beloved Miss Austen, too. Win win. The film takes us on the kind of enamoring adventure of finding oneself through another’s story, and isn’t that how we all find inspiration every now and then? The stories we hear, the people we meet, and the journeys we embark on. The film adaptation of Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrow’s novel of the same title is an exquisite masterpiece filled with a stunning cast and pleasant twists to the story’s original format. The riveting cinematography, astounding performances, and thought-provoking themes have given us something truly great to hold onto.

P.S. let’s just go ahead and declare the summer of 2018, the summer of Lily James, because she’s doing it all, captivating our hearts one wanderlust evoking movie after another. (The first I’m referring to is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again if that wasn’t obvious.)

The Fandom Realm

On this episode of Marvelous Geeks, I not only break down my experiences in fandom, but I talk about the things we need to change in order to create a healthier environment. To semi quote the theme, basically, if what we’re doing is hurting another person, then it’s time to look within.
