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 […]

The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away

Dear J, 4 years ago you convinced me to sit with you on the train and I didn’t let you go ever. We weren’t exactly the greatest friends: our greatest way of bonding at the time was being annoying to each other. I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I did or know half the […]

Zombeavers is a Delightfully Awful Movie

I’m not typically a horror fan. I scream at everything, am prone to panic attacks, and hate jump scares with a passion. However, as the season grows colder and Halloween draws closer, I can’t help but try and get into the spirit of the holiday. How have I done that, you may ask? By watching […]
