A New Blogger Onboard

Hey guys and gals, My name is Christal and I am going to be joining Dennis on his writing journey here at Aliens under the Bed! I figured I would start with a post to help you get to know me and my background a little bit better. I am a complete amateur at this...
The Hardest Thing I Ever Waited For

The Hardest Thing I Ever Waited For

The hardest thing I ever had to wait for was true unconditional love. See by nature am a giver and have the most difficult time receiving. I often found myself giving all of myself in relationships while I only got a small fraction of the other person back. I spent...
New Year, New Ventures

New Year, New Ventures

For a while I’ve been tossing an idea around in my head, and even more recently have been working hard to see it to fruition. Now, the time has come. What have I been working on, you ask? Well, my very own business, of course. What else? Introducing: D&C...
Just As I Am

Just As I Am

“Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bid’st me come to thee, oh lamb of God I come. I come!” To many, these words are just lyrics to a song that they are forced to sing every Sunday at church. And, to...
Blogger Prompt: Through the Window

Blogger Prompt: Through the Window

As I pad through the den, bare feet gliding across the hard wood floor, I cradle my steaming mug of coffee in my hand and take a deep breath. The crisp morning air creeps through the small log cabin, leaving a trail of goosebumps down my arms. I make my way to the...

Blogger Prompt: Obstacle Course

Life has sometimes been likened to an obstacle course. Those who haven’t truly experienced life yet may not really understand this, but when you think about it, it has a lot of truth to it. Life really is an obstacle course, full of pitfalls, traps, and of course,...
Blogger Prompt: Agree to Disagree

Blogger Prompt: Agree to Disagree

One of my biggest pet peeves is all of the bickering and fighting that I see on Facebook on a daily basis. It’s incredible, when you stop to think about it. Right now, one of the biggest “hot buttons” is politics. Trump vs. Hilary vs. Cruz vs. blah blah blah. People...
Blogger Prompt: I Pledge Allegiance

Blogger Prompt: I Pledge Allegiance

I pledge allegiance… that’s something we’ve all heard. It’s something we’ve all recited. But mostly we just recite it from memory in front of a classroom or stadium, with no thought to what we’re actually saying. You see, “I pledge allegiance” means that you are...
What it’s like to deal with OCD

What it’s like to deal with OCD

A lot of people don’t understand OCD, what it’s like, or how it affects those who actually deal with it on a daily basis. People think they’re weird, strange, odd.. insert your favorite derogatory term here. Why? Because people with OCD do strange, odd or weird...
A Plot of Earth

A Plot of Earth

If I had a plot of earth, what would I do with it? This is something that I’ve thought about often over the years. There’s something alluring and intriguing about having a piece of land somewhere, out in the middle of nowhere.. peace, solitude, silence. Nothing but...
Blogger Prompt: The Show Must Go On

Blogger Prompt: The Show Must Go On

In all of our lives there are times when things seem to be going badly. We may feel like running away, throwing up our hands and screaming, or just giving up. It can be because of many different things, but one thing is common amongst them: we just reach a point where...
Blogger Prompt: If I Had a Hammer..

Blogger Prompt: If I Had a Hammer..

  If I had a hammer, what would I build? Things like this are designed to make one think. For me, it makes me think about simplicity. What would I build? Well, I would build my own house. Something small. Something cozy. Something in the middle of the woods, miles...
#BehindTheBlogger: I Could Only Imagine…

#BehindTheBlogger: I Could Only Imagine…

I could only imagine lots of things. For instance, I could only imagine a perfect universe.. a perfect world.. a perfect life. My perfect life? I would be surrounded by people who love me. People who I can laugh with. Smile with. Comfort them when they need it, and be...
#BehindTheBlogger: My Whole World

#BehindTheBlogger: My Whole World

My whole world? Well, my whole world is chaotic. So much so that if you didn’t know better, you’d think I thrived on it. I really don’t. Chaos is my arch-nemesis, really. See, I have a little issue with OCD (ok, a huge issue, sometimes, but my best...
#BehindTheBlogger: My Kinda Freedom

#BehindTheBlogger: My Kinda Freedom

There are many types of freedom, really. We each have our own definitions of what makes one free. My kinda freedom means many things, but mostly the ability to think for myself, to make my own decisions, and live my life however I happen to see fit. For me, freedom...
