Best of 2018

2018 felt like the longest year every while also speeding past us. On New Year's Eve we played a little game, 2018: Bummer, or Not a Bummer? Personally 2018 was not a bummer for us.

The continued shit show that is the President and what he's doing to our country? Definitely a bummer, but the midterm elections

Another light month for movies and TV shows, but here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of October 2018.

Here's a quick review of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I've consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of May 2018.

Here's a quick review of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I've consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of April 2018.
