Coming out. Telling just one person the truth about who you are can be extremely scary. While watching the movie “Love, Simon” there were a lot of things that spoke to me. “Love, Simon” follows Simon Spier, played by Nick Robinson, through his coming-out journey and how he deals with diffe...

“One Kiss” by Calvin Harris featuring Dua Lipa is a must listen to for any electronic music lover. The Scottish DJ has returned to his original style of deep house, jazz music mixed in with techno, in this single. Harris utilizes an uplifting beat, one that you could tap your feet to, or in my ca...

The Post Malone album Beers and Bentleys came out April 27. The album features many artists such as 21 Savage and YG or Young Gangster.

Disney released “A Wrinkle in Time” Feb. 26, which is based on the novel by Madeleine L'Engle. When my mom told me that was the movie we were going to see, I was not especially looking forward to it; the previews made it look extra-childish and over-dramatized. The beginning of the movie moved fas...

In a chilling twist on Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” the television series “Frankenstein Chronicles” rose from the grave and made its way to Netflix. Full of crime and mystery, it had me hooked within an episode. Sean Bean’s appearance may have also played a part in that. John Marlott...

Waking up in the morning, bleary eyed and unrested. The sky is still dark and shadows blanket the world. Unfortunately, there is no time to linger. It is time to go. Tired and irritable and cursing everything, there is something you need: coffee. Ah yes, that universally loved beverage. Why, though, does every...
