I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my TWO (2) degrees. I love research and I’m the kind of nerd that likes analyzing the heck out of every single piece of media I consume so expect a lot of that here.

It’s more important that we bask in Ezra Miller’s star as it begins to crest than we have the tough conversations about what it means that a queer icon getting visibility is partially responsible for a film that attempts to flat out humanize Darren Wilson, a murderer who killed Mike Brown because he was Black and read as a threat to Wilson because of it.
