“We’re all a little mad here”

   It feels like it has been forever since my last B4B review but I have finally found a book that I thought I would enjoy. 
   I was taking a break from coloring so I could work on some of my own art to potentially have some home decor for our room but I’m hung up on finding picture frames at a decent price that won’t fall apart. 
   I picked Wonderland by Amily When because I LOVE ALL THINGS ALICE. Growing up I read and re-read Alice in Wonderland so many times and I never seemed to get enough.
   This coloring book had its pros and it’s cons like all others. The pictures are beautiful and quite detailed. It follows it’s own story while incorporating new story fragments which was interesting. 
   The cons are pretty much what I had a problem with on a lot other the other coloring books, they are dual printed, front and back and the pages are NOT perforated. Also, as much as I love the detail, it is so hard to get into most of the spaces if you are like me and don’t have a ton of fine point pens to color with. 
   Other then that I would say I like it but I’m taking out the pictures I want and passing it on…

To die, to sleep –  To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub, For in this sleep of death what dreams may come. ~William Shakespeare

   When someone famous dies millions upon millions of post roll in on social media. Over the past couple of weeks I’m sure everyone has heard of the celebrity deaths ranging from singers, wrestlers or ufc fighters but have you heard about the you heard about the 15-16 year old girl who died in a Delaware school bathroom? All over a boy. How many people mourn for her parents, who now have to live without their beautiful daughter?
   Hear about Morgan Wojciechowski, who was only trying to replicate a YouTube science experiment? What about the little boy who hung himself on accident on the playground at his daycare? The point I’m trying to get to is why can’t people be “equal opportunity post-ers”.
   Do people post because they knew them on a personal level? Noooo! They post these because they watched their movies and listened to their music. At this point my rant is pretty much over… I just wish people could stop and think about all of those children and families who’s story never gets heard because everyone is obsessed over what celebrity just passed.
