Book Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea

Growing up, I loved the moving "Cool Runnings," loosely based on the Jamaican bobsled team during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Now when I watch the movie, I can't help reflecting on a line that one of the bobsledders said: "People are always afraid of what's different."...

Moving to Wisconsin during a Global Pandemic

Around June 2019, I moved in with my boyfriend (now fiance). He owned a small two-bedroom, 1 ½ bathroom house in a small city near Chicago. Fast forward to June 2020: because of the pandemic, he was permanently laid off from job and I was furloughed. The last thing we...

Living with Migraines

CW: migraines, nausea A migraine is not a headache. That's been the hardest to explain to people once I started getting migraines. My worst migraine happened in 2019, and last for five days. I ended up going to urgent care because the pain and the nausea were so bad....

Book Review: When No One is Watching

Book Review: When No One is Watching

One of my favorite thrillers is "Get Out" by Jordan Peele. I wasn't expecting Peele, a comedian, to create a movie with such an interesting concept about racism and turn it into a horror-comedy. Alyssa Cole's latest book, "When No One Is Watching," is considered a...
