How I Survived 2020

Bring it, 2021. I think it’s safe for me to say that everyone had a shitty year. We lost many greats and were exposed to many horrible leaders.

What We Lose: The 2020 Edition

It’s a tricky balance: being mindful of how you make others feel v. being true to not only yourself but also the greater good. This year, oh, this year.

I will say that the book gives you a better insight into Mr. …

Cherry: Book Review – and Movie Predictions

A delightfully dark read and a must read for all social justice advocates. Raw. Profane. Straight from a dark heart. These are only a few ways the back of the book describes Nico Walker’s debut novel, soon to be turned into a major motion that will grace our screens. If you’re looking for a tragic …
