I say this title in the most sarcastic manner because on the surface, today was horrible. If someone were to have watched me from sunrise to sunset they would be disappointed, as I was, until I began to think. When you’re a fixer and a fighter, it’s hard to acknowledge small victories especially on days […]

I’ve come to a point where I don’t know what to do but write. I’ve felt this overwhelming sense of loss this year and it’s overshadowed the gains I have made professionally and spiritually. I lost my virginity, and with that I lost the little self-esteem I had as well. It would be unfair to […]

We go through life being told stories about our childhood and all the moments that led up to our conception. These are the accounts of other humans and their perception of it all, which is often different from our memory of the moment. Imagine growing up, being unable to remember your childhood and after years […]

Let’s just dive right into this. ***SPOILERS*** 1. The Joker: They did Jared Leto dirty. Jared Leto, is an underrated actor. Due to his involvement in music, he is not in as many movies as I would like. But, he is still well known and to give such a well known name the […]
