Jesus Christ in True Detective

As I’ve said many times before: It’s no secret–I love Matthew McConaughey. Upon watching the first season of True Detective, I came to admire McConaughey’s acting chops even more than I previously had. His descent into the nuanced pessimism of Rustin Cohle was truly awe-inspiring. After finishing the season, I began researching more about theContinue reading “Jesus Christ in True Detective”

Olivia Rodrigo’s “SOUR” Review

Ever since May 21, 2021, nearly all of my friends have raved about the same thing–SOUR by Olivia Rodrigo. Initially, I was skeptical–could an album by a 17 year old Disney star really be that good? However, a few weeks after the fact (and after hearing a catchy bit of the single “good 4 u”Continue reading “Olivia Rodrigo’s “SOUR” Review”

Book Review: Can’t Hurt Me

As I sauntered through the brightly lit Barnes and Noble, desperate to find something that would bring me wisdom to get me through a tumultuous time in my life, I picked up a book I had meaning to read for quite some time: Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins.

The Misguided Nature of Modern Self Care

I once had a friend ask me a piece of advice often administered that I believed was actually bad advice; I quickly responded, “self care.” Although I had reason for this belief, I had a hard time articulating and understanding why I thought this, despite my conviction. Why would taking care of yourself be badContinue reading “The Misguided Nature of Modern Self Care”

The Problem With “Living Your Truth”

I understand that each individual has memories and experiences that inform their outlook on the world, but that’s not “truth.” That’s  called “subjective experience.”

Vegan YouTube Must Be Stopped

As a 15 year old girl searching for ways to ~get skinny~ and healthy, I stumbled across videos by FreeLee the Banana Girl, an Australian vegan YouTuber. FreeLee introduced me to veganism, crediting the lifestyle to her lean physique (conveniently without mentioning that she biked for hours each day…). She claimed that ingesting animal productsContinue reading “Vegan YouTube Must Be Stopped”

In Defense of Margaret Thatcher

It’s no secret that Margaret Thatcher is one of the most controversial Prime Ministers in U.K. history. The controversy has only continued since her resignation in 1990. She is loathed among progressives, who view her as a cold woman who spitefully slashed social programs in the 1980s, while conservatives laud her as a hero whoContinue reading “In Defense of Margaret Thatcher”

Best (and Worst) At-Home Fitness Influencers

At a time when most of the gyms are still closed closed have been closed for what feels like forever (March 17, 2020–a day that will live in infamy), many of us have been relegated to at-home workouts. After months of trying to find the best (ie most challenging) at-home workouts, I fancy myself anContinue reading “Best (and Worst) At-Home Fitness Influencers”

Why I’m Abstaining From Social Media in 2021

With the start of a new year, many find themselves committing to new years resolutions. Following the unprecedented year we all experienced, this year’s resolutions will likely reflect the lessons we’ve learned and the smaller improvements we need to make in our lives. I know mine does. If I’ve learned anything from the past year,Continue reading “Why I’m Abstaining From Social Media in 2021”
