Taking a Break: Humanity and a Humorous Book Review

No matter what side you take with politics around the world (seems like the US is far from the only one experiencing turmoil) I think you have been overwhelmed as I have lately. I do think we need a break on occasion to charge our batteries. So those about to leave, relax nothing bad here at all. I hope this helps a bit to recharge so you can continue to #resist!

Now that one may make you tear a bit, but they will be good tears, I promise. The kids wrestling match gets me every time (ok, all the kid ones get to me)!

Also, if you know me, you know I enjoy the classic, Jane Eyre. However, I love this version and analysis of it. Do watch the ending for the analysis. He does a great job of it. Good overview for those that haven't read it or seen the movie. LOL A bit NSFW due to language. πŸ˜‰
Hope that put a smile on your face.

  1. I know I've had to take a step back from FB, just too many negative posts, the same for the news. I watch what I have to and then turn it off, it just isn't worth it right now. ;)

  2. We all need something fun to keep our sanity. I tend to share animal pictures and videos.

  7. The senior class of 2014 introduced me to Thug Notes. I had not heard of it before. He cracks me up but I gotta say he gets right to the point with his analysis.
