Let’s Be Friends.
(Unless you’re a close-minded jerk. Then I’ll take a hard pass.) But I’m sure you’re cool, right? Hello, Dear Reader. Maybe you’re a follower, or maybe you’ve stumbled upon my cauldron of creative musings and are asking yourself just what this site is all about. What’s a SnapDragon? I am SnapDragon, friend. Allow me to…

As I strolled through my old Philadelphia block, I ducked into the Starbucks for a reprieve from the summer heat. Not feeling up for an iced coffee (gasp!) I purchased a little bag of barbeque chips and settled in for a little morning read. Sam Harris today. As a lady contemplated her order at the…
This is Eden.
A short critique of John Steinbeck’s East of Eden Oh my. This is big, Dear Reader. So big. I just found my new all-time favorite novel. (gasp!) Yep. It’s true. (What was the former all-time favorite, you ask? Unsurprisingly, it was Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. It’s the only book (with the exception of books…
My Ultimate Library: Part 2.
Get ready for the second installment of Snap’s favorite books! Here we go, friends. Another collection that just had to find a spot on the shelf. Just as a reminder, these are books I hold very near and dear to my heart. My Ultimate Library is, well, just that. These are my literary babies; they’re…
Friday Night Ramblings.
Hello, Dear Reader. It’s time for a few two-bit musings. You know: just because. Three Things I Currently Find Annoying: Labeled Notebooks.

I want more quality sleep; more books; more delectable cheeses. More bottle-cap earrings; more hand-written letters; more dinners with friends. More paints; More petting of animals; More…
The Natural Deodorant Challenge.
Because stress stinks. Just roll it on, yo. All right! Snap is back and ready to share her two-bit opinions on the top contenders of the Natural Deodorant Game. I think in 2019 choosing a natural–or at least aluminum-free–deodorant is a no-brainer. Whether or not the cancer-causing claims of mainstream sticks are bogus, I’d rather…
Yesterday I sliced up a watermelon. As I slid the knife I helped myself to a taste or two. So sweet. So juicy. So divine. The End.
Anxiety is when you’re walking through a bookshop on a Sunday morning and your heart starts racing for no reason. Anxiety is when you feel nervous when people text you because you feel like somehow you’ve offended them or let them down. Anxiety is when you feel like a kid who might be in trouble…
