History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

I’ll never understand how time can make a moment feel as close as yesterday and as far as years. I feel weird admitting this to the Internet, but that’s the only way I can do this this review. I fell in love with a boy. He was my best friend, and I didn’t understand the […]

Gravity Makes Me Fall

Gravity Makes Me Fall

February 13 (or I guess, 14th) I should have seen that this was a bad idea before I got to this point. I somehow thought that running away across the country was going to make everything so much clearer for me. It shouldn’t take standing alone in a train staton in Queens to figure out […]

  Anyone who knows me is aware of my epic love affair with the Terracotta Warriors (not to be mistaken for my tragic love affair with the Cat Returns). I even sat through the entirety of The Film That Shall Not Be Named—known in some territories as The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor or […]

Social Media Stars Take the Music Industry By… Storm???

Popular social media star Darryl Granberry, better known as PontiacMadeDDG, released a new song called, “Givenchy” this past week. Let me begin by saying this song is actually not as bad as you might imagine. The song could easily be put up against some of the other “hot” songs right now in the Hip-Hop/Rap scene. […]
