But, I know quite a few people who do, and after giving this award show some thought, I wanted to delve into the topic a bit further and … More Are the Oscars worth the hype?
Cheerleading is something I personally have never had much interest in. By no means am I attempting to convey the idea that I don’t care about the sport, because it has similarities to gymnastics which I did when I was younger. Rather, I’ve never been involved in cheerleading myself, therefore it isn’t something I devote … More Have you seen Netflix’s Cheer?
I would argue that social constructions and influences have manipulated us into believing that being single is a bad thing. Why this is, I’m not sure, but I do know that it truly bothers me.

If you’re human, … More Passing gas: what’s your take?
Having to deal with a dry, flaky scalp is not an enjoyable experience.

Death is a pretty gloomy topic. Understandably, we associate death with loss, absence, pain and anguish, and it certainly isn’t something we yearn for when it comes to ourselves or our loved ones.

Similar to my post the other day listing what Rotten Tomatoes deemed as the best flicks of the former year, I thought I would write a post regarding the best books of 2019.

Salad, from my own observations, has a bad reputation. When most of us hear the term ‘salad,’ our thoughts automatically associate it with being bland, boring, and certainly not something we typically have a hankering for.
