My Favorite Movies of 2017

I been waiting to write this post for weeks now! This past year I watched 64 movies that were released in 2017 in the United States (to the public, I don’t count film festival release dates since I can’t go to them :D). Out of that only 11 fell under a C+ rating for me,… Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2017

Since Top Ten Tuesday is on break until August, this is a great time to break out some topics that I’ve been wanting to write about.

Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Why is it that when women, especially college-age women, say they’ve been raped, there are many who want to push their claims to the side? Is it because recent media (movies, TV, and books) have painted a picture that girls report false… Continue reading Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Book First: The Martian by Andy Weir

Hype is an interesting phenomenon. As human beings we should know better because we’ve seen hype fail us over and over again. Even when a book, movie or show is good it can still leave a bitter taste when it doesn’t live up to expectations. I should know better. But fuck it: My expectations were… Continue reading Book First: The Martian by Andy Weir
