A Word for Wednesday: Drama

(Via)
I love the movie, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." While I haven't watched it in a long time, one of my favorite lines is, "Drama. Drama. Drama." Its near the beginning when Michelle hasn't shown up for work and Jeannie keeps muttering, "Drama. Drama. Drama." (and yes I had to look up her name.)

There have been times in my life when things were full of drama. Most notably high school and college. I'm not too huge on drama. It just stresses. me. out.

Recently though, I was telling a good friend about something that had happened earlier in the day. They looked at me and said, "That person just really loves to create drama don't they?"

Boy were they right! The person referred to is constantly creating drama in my life. Whether they realize it or not they can take an uncomplicated situation and turn it into an ordeal.

In my Google reader recently was a great blog written by Anne from Modern Mrs. Darcy. In it she talks about the "Dramatist" in our lives. I obviously have at least one! While I can't always get rid of them I can acknowledge to myself that they are such people and not give into their dramatics. 

Don't believe me? There was a meeting in my office awhile ago. The new assistant left before their boss. I overheard her boss say, "She is so great. Its wonderful to not have any drama."

The drama of the previous assistant was apparently pretty intense. They continued to refer to to this person's personal drama that had obviously made its way into work. I don't know the rest of the story, maybe she quit. Maybe it just wasn't working out. Who knows, but I do know this:

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
