I'm still dealing with how I feel about my mom having cancer (for the record, she is doing very well), so I’m not yet ready to write about such sensitive topics. In fact, I haven’t been doing any sort of writing whatsoever. There have been many things I’ve wanted to write about here, as so… Continue reading Extended Hiatus
Uvalde Mass Shooting
If you know me, you know I can't help but doomscroll. I can't help it; as somebody who loves the news, it's my nature. Unfortunately, the information isn't usually cheerful, but quite horrible -- hence, the doomscrolling. However, I haven't been doomscrolling about the horrific mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. I couldn't do that to… Continue reading Uvalde Mass Shooting
Do You Want to Be Right or Happy?
"Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?" It's a question I haven't personally been asked much, but that I've heard many times. I don't usually dig in my heels so much that I refuse to admit that I'm wrong, I have only a few hills that I will choose… Continue reading Do You Want to Be Right or Happy?
NAACP Urges Athletes Not to Sign in Texas
My rights in Texas are not protected. Neither are yours. Neither would these free agency athletes' rights be, which is why I fully agree with the NAACP. I no longer have the right to my reproductive health. My voting rights have been slashed. And I no longer have the right to not get COVID, because, quite honestly, it has more reproductive rights than I do. Transgender kids have also been targeted.
I could leave. I could move to a bluer state. Maybe a sane person would. But I won't. I can't fix the problems here in Texas if I'm not here to vote in Texas. I'm going to fight for the state I love, for my home. I'll vote, I'll march, hell, I'll run for office if it comes down to it. But I'm not leaving. I'm fighting.
So one day I can say, "Free agent athletes of the NAACP, come to Texas. You'll love it here."

Right Wing Social Media
Parler. Telegram. Gab. Gettr. 8Chan. And now Trump’s new Truth Social, due out in 2022. So what do these have in common? They’re right-wing social media apps, spewing with hate speech, misinformation, and more. Not only do right-wing users still use Twitter (and get incensed when the terms of service are rightfully used against them),… Continue reading Right Wing Social Media
War on Women
Coming very soon is an article on the Abortion Ban (SB8) in Texas, as well as some quotes about how people feel about it. I also intend to write an entry about the Texas bills we haven't heard much about because of the strict abortion law -- the new voting law and the new gun… Continue reading Coming Soon…
By Guest Writer Adam Kapusin If you have been on social media over the past few weeks, I can almost guarantee that you have seen the following three topics discussed: COVID-19, Afghanistan, and the upcoming football season. As much as I would like to discuss the upcoming football season, this isn't the best place to… Continue reading Afghanistan Reaction
