Writing out your feelings or creating a new world will never get old. I've always enjoyed it, whether it be a feeling or a long paragraph expressing something. Reading novels and being able to write compelling sentences is a gift. ✨😬🪞
Why love came to kill us in the words of Jessie Reyez
Artist Jessie Reyez wrote a song called "When Love Came to Kill Us" off her album "BEFORE LOVE CAME TO KILL US." I felt like the song is something to mention because when Reyez wrote that "I know nobody gets outta love alive/We either breakup when we're young or we say goodbye when we die/" I felt that. I want to hone on young breakups. College or post-college breakups are the ones that really leave a mark on the heart once you grace the doors of adulthood.
A movie review on Prey by filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg
Predator or prey…which one is worse? Dan Trachtenberg’s film Prey debuted this month on Hulu. Remade off of the original Predator film in 1987, Prey is about a young Comanche girl who loves to hunt and eventually kills the biggest predator of them all. I want to discuss a few key takeways that I enjoyed from the film and help you relate to it! The first idea that I enjoyed from the film was the first scene. Prey opens with Nadu (Amber MidThunder) hunting a deer. She was fast, determined and cunning enough to hunt all wildlife with a bow and arrow, along with her ax. And get this… she would throw it. I like how this scene, along with some of the others that I will discuss today, show the genius of the Native AMerican culture, specifically the Comanches. (Side note: in Middle school I was highly fascinated with Native culture and would study/research about their culture during my free time).
A Conundrum of Anxiety and Depression
There is so much that can be said about mental illnesses. I mean, I can go on and on about it, but there are two specific ones that I want to personally elaborate on. They are anxiety and depression. I feel like both affect people in different ways but have the same end result: sadness.
