Obsessed with Pens

I have a huge collection of pens of all sorts, sized, and colors.  Fine Point and Think Point.  I have to STOP buying them!

I have a huge obsession with BOOKS.  My obsession started years ago when I lost all my books in a house fire.  At first I was bummed out to lose over 1000 books!  I even got an reader a KINDLE FIRE.  Well, that did not fix me.  I am still obsessed with true stories, true crime, like NCIS, CSI, Numbe3rs, Criminal Minds, and even Supernatural.

I also had a collection of Titanic books, old and new.   I am obsessed with the real story.

Now I am on a kick, to read one author and all the books they write…for example right now I am reading Iris JoHansen series.

BUT, I am also in College.

1st I got my AA in Paralegal in IL

2nd got my BA in Technical management

3rd I am working and half way done with my Master’s in Human Resources Generalist

I have been in college for ten years.  I raised my daughter 1st as a single mom.  My hubby walked out on us when she was 1.5 years old.  Going back to college is my passion and finishing is my passion.

So with all that said, I do college most of my free time.   On my spare time I spend with my two cats and or reading.  Here and there I get to watch Netflix movies.

What do you like to do on your FREE TIME?

Review of Movie Acts of Vengeance

220px-Acts_of_Vengeance_poster

Acts of Vengeance is a Netflix movie that can be true and I think many should watch this movie. First I am a huge fan of Antonio Banderas. That was a given to want to watch the movie. So, basically the movie has a busy prosecuting attorney. The kicker is that a man on the police force has a daughter who was killed and Tony Banderas got the murderer freed. So this cop has a vengeance to want to hurt Tony. So he sets up his wife and daughter and murder’s them. After learning from a book he learned The best revenge is to be unlike your enemy. He also learned combat skills. At first Tony blames himself for the murders of his wife and daughter but later decided to make use of his time by finding the killer. I was awe struck at the skills he learned and the fact that in the end, Tony did not kill but got the cop to go to trial and put in prison. Yes, there are good cops and bad but at the end of the day they have to live with their own choices. I was touched by the dog in the movie and by how I felt after watching it. As much as I want to hurt those who hurt me I am now reminded that in the end it is God’s Vengeance NOT ME!

For starters, as a believer in Christ let us look at the different versions of what the Bible says on Vengeance:
