Quarantine Diaries Vol. III Sex, Ghosts & Videotapes Something tells me I shouldn't go into the mansion. It is beautiful, no doubt, standing a proud three stories high and stretching across two long acres of crisp, sun-roasted land. With its sangria walls, black-tinted windows and eggplant purple roofs, the mansion nearly disappears into the backdrop... Continue Reading →

"The Old Guard"- Movie Review So here we are, sitting in our homes, keeping clean, having endless rounds of Zoom meetings, still waiting for the world to return to somewhat normalcy.

"Hamilton"- Movie Review Finally, after years of watching the Hamilton hype train stroll on by, I can now say that I've stepped foot onto the bandwagon, albeit under special circumstances.

I try to keep an eye out for ones with good word-of-mouth, or... Continue Reading →

"The Graveyard Book"- Book Review This past month I decided to revisit the work of an author who had a firm hand in shaping my life-long interest in storytelling. British writer Neil Gaiman is responsible for some of the best books I read growing up. His 2002 dark fantasy novella, Coraline, was a frequent re-rental... Continue Reading →

"Extraction"- Movie Review It's been over a month since I've been to the theater, and let me tell you, I've been having some serious withdrawals. I miss being able to go to a screening, chilled water bottle and contraband snack in hand, and relax and enjoy watching a movie with surround-sound. Thankfully our current age... Continue Reading →

Quarantine Diaries Vol II: I Dream of Popsicle Sticks Me and my boyfriend, Matt, attend a party on a university campus. It was an awesome party, buzzing with music, laughter and exuberant neon lights. Late into the night, after spending hours killing it on the dancefloor, Matt takes me to the side and hands me...

Quarantine Diaries Vol. I:  Flying Cars, Talking Pigs and Unfortunate Events Heeellllllooo.....! Can anybody hear me? Can anybody see me? Does anybody out there have one ounce of sanity left in them?
