Enough with the Love Triangles

Love triangles have permeated Young Adult fiction since the turn of the century.  I would argue it has gone beyond clichéd and it expected to be in Young Adult material whether we want it or not. There is no denying that there isn’t anything inherently wrong with a love triangle subplot.  It can be done... Continue Reading →

Romantic Love isn’t the Only Rare Love

It is often said that true love is rare.  Many people find romantic love, but making it last is difficult, especially to one person for the rest of our lives.  In a culture where changing relationships is common practice, this is especially true.  However, I hardly see posts, songs, or television shows about other types...

Partitioning Love

The Love of a Border Collie

July of 2017 started one of the hardest periods for my family.  Without warning we lost our main source of income, and this happened one month after we just got a border collie named Syrup.  Anyone who has dogs knows the first year they are very expensive due to spaying/neutering and shots. I grew up... Continue Reading →
