While the ’60s waved goodbye to their waning years, Ford assembled a diligent … Continue reading Ford v. Ferrari (2019) REVIEW – More Than a Feud

Jojo Rabbit (2019) REVIEW – A Fresh Political Satire

Fox Searchlight sets out to challenge the textbook coming-of-age story that has been told time and time again. Taking an unsavory stance upon its opening, the progression of Jojo Rabbit delightfully surprises with its message, but with a softer blow than what is anticipated by applying a playful attitude towards the Holocaust that doesn’t dismiss its historical significance. Leeching off of the trauma of World … Continue reading Jojo Rabbit (2019) REVIEW – A Fresh Political Satire

JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Gotham is revived in living color and in inauspicious despair as it bears growing lawlessness that commands the centric theme of the highly-anticipated character study on the harlequin of hate who has been praised as a saint for exiles throughout the ages – Joker. The notorious, infamous, face-painted, and fearmongering character has been one that has become, in sorts, a mockery of itself in recent … Continue reading JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Compare and Contrast

All people do with writing is compare love to beauty or sadness to disaster. Why can’t we include contrasting feelings with objects or moments? Why is it so uncommon to be the one to write about “comparing” someone or feelings for someone to something that it actually isn’t? Why don’t we write about not only what is, but also what isn’t? I can tell you that you … Continue reading Compare and Contrast


The scent clings to my coat,       Showing me the endless possibilities of humility       Awkward stares, noses scrunching in distaste In disdain, I lift my foot over the threshold,       Disconnecting the ties that held my cloak of warmth       And let it fall behind me as graciously As Ma stirs the curry on the stovetop,        Onions Garlic Chilli all coated with masala        Masala that drifted the air … Continue reading Roots

It is not the rectangle’s detached nature that scares me, but what lies on the other side. The view outside the rectangle has never been kissed good luck by the luscious sun. Monstrous thunders … Continue reading Window

An Honest Letter To The Education System

Dear Faculty, I’m beyond stressed out. You’ve made me fear success as much as failure, because opposite the fear of failure, is the fear of expectations. People seem to either expect nothing at all or everything from me, as if average isn’t awful, but I’m definitely not doing well. “You could do better.” A quote I’ve heard from far too many teachers and have remembered … Continue reading An Honest Letter To The Education System
