Life Lessons from my Little Brother
There is no one in this world I love more than my younger brother. For the last 15 years, he's been my best friend and my worst enemy. He's been the voice of reason and the peacekeeper in the family, and he's been like that for a very long time. My mother calls him an "old soul" and I can't help but agree with her.

'The End of the F***ing World'
WARNING!: SPOILERS FOR THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD AHEAD!" When it's really cold out, I tend to never leave my house. When I never leave my house, I get bored pretty quickly. So, while browsing on my phone for a bit, I found an advertisement for a show on Netflix called The End of the F***ing World. No joke, that's actually the title. I was pretty intrigued, mostly because the advertisements looked pretty funny.
Putting the Drama in "Drama Club"
So, High School. Friendships, hardships, romance, you name it. It's where you make your best memories, right? Where you peak in life.
The Fourteen Points of Fascism and Our President
