Spotify vs. Youtube Listening to music is such a hassle if you’re a cheapskate like me. I’m always using free trials then canceling them at the last minute to get the most out of my experience. If I ever need to jam out to music or feel sad for no apparent reason, I mainly use the free versions of Spotify or Youtube. I h...

Horror Is The Best Genre Do you ever stay up late at night watching shows and movies, or maybe even reading books because you’re bored and can’t fall asleep? I find myself doing that way too much. No matter what, I always go back to the same genre: horror. Horror is by far the best genre ever created. When you wat...

The Breakfast Discord For the past few days, I’ve been hearing my peers make small talk over what they have eaten for breakfast. The conversation varies from eggs to cereal to rice. “It’s the most important meal of the day,” they say. And as I sit there, taking in the contents of their meals, I begin to think of my...

For the past few months, coronavirus has seen a stark increase in COVID-19, especially in Texas, Florida, and California.

The political party that once belonged to Jefferson and Jackson has continued to be the right s...

No Theaters, No Problem

September 6, 2020

Sometimes reality is one hard pill to swallow. Movie theaters take that stupid pill and chuck it out the window.

The Mattel Convention   I don’t often hate-watch things, but the Republican National Convention has been an exception.
