PlayStation has not released a new system since the PS4 was released in 2013. Modifications on the original were repackaged as the PS Slim and PS Pro in 2016, but a totally new system is 7 years in the making. Because of this PlayStation fans are beyond excited to get their hands on the new system. It is like being a part of history. PlayStation has made several improvements to the system to aid in the immersive experience. Smoother playback, faster loading, and more sensory feedback with new controllers are just a few enhancements gamers can expect this holiday season. But what everyone is clamoring about is the games. In true PlayStation form, there are several PS exclusives and timed exclusives that will be ready at launch and released next year. Here is a list of the 4 most interesting PS exclusives you are going to want to check out.
Growing up the black community I knew that seeking help for mental health was seen as weird and taboo. Telling someone you are in therapy was like openly admitting to being that psycho killer from all the horror movies. There are a wide variety of mental health issues that stretch a wide spectrum of intensity that affect most of the population. Why does my community think it affects all these people, but not us? We want to be strong. We want to be the perfect embodiment of strength. We want to be built so strong that no one from the outside world could ever break us down. Having a mental health issue is seen as a weakness. It is the crack in the foundation that threatens to tear the whole structure down. Just like eye color and freckles this is something that is passed down from parent to child year after year. It is one of those generational curses that people are always talking about. One that needs to be broken now across the board. One that is causing more harm by having so many people not receive the help they need from fear of they will be perceived.
I recently visited a large farmers’ market 15 minutes from my home that I did not even know was there. I was in awe of the size. This place was larger than two major chain stores put together. When I visited the stalls, I found interesting items I had never seen before. Not only was I shopping, but I was learning as well. The farmers were more than happy to tell me about their goods and even share some recipe ideas with me. The variety was amazing: produce, spices, fish, eggs, meat all fresh, all at my fingertips. Everything was seasonal which meant it was not genetically modified and was not shipped from the other side of the world. There were no long lines and no crowds at all. This led me to wonder…do people even know this exists?
