The Moral Compass is Broken

I hate that this is something I feel inclined to write about. In part, because I have no interest in politics. I like to stay far away from them. When they don’t bore me, they frustrate me. Plus, I watched the first three seasons of House of Cards, so naturally, I don’t trust anyone. However,…

When the Slump Moves In

Every few months I go through a slump. This slump consists of an indefinite amount of time where my creative meter lies at zero, and I have absolutely no energy or motivation for anything. These are the kind of days where Pringles substitute your meals because the mere thought of getting up to open the…

A Weekend of Mario Kart on the Switch

I still have my Super Nintendo sitting next to the TV in my room (because the 90’s ruled & and I can’t let things go). Technically, it was my brother’s, but mi casa es su casa and whatnot, so now it’s mine. Even after playing on every PlayStation & Xbox console, my unwavering loyalty belongs…

Photos at the Library

Two weeks ago, my friend, Zyaire, who happens to be an awesome photographer, messaged me to let me know he had some free time for a quick shoot. I was happy to take advantage, and immediately knew which outfit I wanted to use. Years ago I had bought a $6 pair of flared leggings from Ross. To…

A Letter to God About Love

Dear God, Sometimes, the fact that we can’t put a face to your name can make it difficult to believe in your existence. Bad things happen, prayers go unanswered, and the despair effortlessly multiplies. Yet, every time the bad seemingly starts outweighing the good, you show up with a sign that is undoubtedly from you….

I’ve Been Working Out with Roxy Powers

Growing up, my family had one TV in the house, and my brother’s 12-year-old brain was always smart enough to find a way to get to the remote first. So, since I was about 5, I’ve consistently watched wrestling. I guess you could say I was a forced fan…UNTIL 2004, when a legend of a…

Why I Went Vegan

When I was five, my school held a mini graduation for my Kindergarten class. I remember feeling my nerves wake up as I looked out at the crowd. Our teacher had given us construction paper the night before, and had instructed us to write down what we wanted to be when we grew up so…

Maybe Don’t Follow Your Passion

I’ve had a lot of difficulty trying to identify what my passion is. I used to think my passion was medicine, but now, I’m not so sure it is. Don’t get me wrong, everything about medicine fascinates me, and the fact that I will literally be able to save lives in just a couple of…

My Cat Tried to Kill Me & Failed

I never thought I’d be typing out these words, but life is surprising like that. I don’t actually think she was trying to kill me, but once you hear the actual story, you’ll understand why it’s more exciting to paint her in this light. Here’s the assassin that I’m talking about. Her name is Selena,…

Water, Earth, Fire, Air.

Let me preface this post by saying I CANNOT BELIEVE I WENT OVER 12 YEARS WITHOUT SEEING AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER.I just finished watching the whole series, and it’s changed my life. Honestly, it might take some time for me to forgive my middle-school self. The irony is that I didn’t even want to watch…

My Quest for White Tiger

After watching Black Panther, I was hooked. The way that Marvel incorporated and represented African culture was exemplary. I’ll spare the details because, even if you haven’t watched the movie, I’m sure you’ve heard it all already. With the exception of very few movies, I can’t watch something twice- and I saw this movie 3…

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! I’m looking forward to sharing so many things with you through here. For now, I’m going with the flow & seeing where this blog takes me, but rest assured there will be guaranteed posts about animals, medicine, and anything entertainment industry related.  My 3 major passions are clearly scattered around different…
