Top 5: MCU Villains (insert evil laughter here)

Originally posted on Killing Time:

Tom Hiddleston, Loki, Thor: The Dark World

There’s an old saying amongst people who compulsively read comic books that heroes are only as good as their villains.  The Marvel Cinematic Universe just churned out MCU #12 with Ant-Man (click here for review), and now we’re on a sad break until Netflix’s JessicaJones in the fall.  If there’s a systemic flaw in the franchise it is that, while the heroes have been cast and developed near-perfectly, the villains have not gotten the same treatment.

Sadly, this is-in part-because a lot of Marvel’s best villains are locked into the X-Men and Fantastic Four lots that are owned by other studios.  The Red Skull was completely mishandled in Cap 1, and I don’t believe for a second he’s dead so hopefully they’ll give him his due the second time around.  In fact, if Tom Hiddleston hadn’t nearly stolen Phase 1 from Iron Man, we’d be talking about this as…

Come To Pass

This morning, sitting back with my second cup of coffee. Still not fully awake yet. I read this quote. Many thoughts came to mind. However I believe will sum it up like this.

“Let your true self flow, embrace a future it may hold.”

Watch your thoughts, they become your words.
Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

6 things Android Wear smartwatches can do that the Apple Watch can’t

Originally posted on InfoBuzzzz:

1. Custom watch faces
2. Always-on apps (soon)
3. Works over any Wi-Fi network
4. Hand-drawn emoji
5. Wrist-gesture controls
6. Pattern lock screen

Each wearable platform has its own strengths and weaknesses. Obviously, if you’re already deeply invested into the iPhone ecosystem, the Apple Watch is the way to go. And if you’re an Android user, Android Wear makes sense. Neither is compatible with one another (although there’s a rumor that Google is working on an Android Wear app for iOS).

With the new Android Wear 5.1.1 Wear update rolling out to smartwatches, it’s clear the Apple Watch will have some catching up to do to reach feature parity with Android Wear’s year head start.

Writing Tips: Get to the Point

Originally posted on The Writer's Chronicle:

One of my hopes for this blog was to provide my readers with tips on how to become a stronger writer. Well, I’m going to make good on that promise and start posting some writing tips I’ve collected over the years from teachers, peers, personal experiences, and from the fabulous tool known as the Internet.

Writing Tip 1: Get to the Point!

Readers will quickly lose interest in your writing if you don’t get to the meat of the message fast. I’ve been guilty of rambling and writing run-on sentences a handful of times (more like 10 handfuls). Heck, I’m probably rambling now. Believe me, it’s much better to start with the point you want to make rather than building it up. Very rarely does it work out the other way.

Not only will removing extra words and starting with the main point of a story maintain your reader’s interest, but it will also make…

Driving to Success

Originally posted on findingmy30s:

Starting a new job is exciting but it can also be scary.  In my case, I tend to not sleep the week before I start.  I lay there contemplating all the different scenarios that could happen (not all of them logical of course).  I have found a few tips that make the first week go a little smoother.

1. PREPARATION: The old saying “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” has held tried and true in my world.  Take the time before you start to really research your company (if you didn’t before your interview).  Social media is a great way to find out what people really think about your new company.

2. Pick Your First Day Outfit: I know it sounds silly, but it is like the first day of school and you only get one first impression. You want to walk in feeling confident and the clothes…
