Documentary Review: Unseen

I’m really into true crime stories/shows and documentaries so “Unseen” was a good mixture of the two. I was scrolling through Amazon Prime when I came across this documentary that was about a serious crime that had hit the news a few years ago and I honestly didn’t know much about it.

Travel Diary: Cancun

A couple weeks ago, I took a 5 day trip to Cancun, Mexico. I hadn’t been to any part of Mexico before and all I knew was what I heard or read. Cancun turned out to be much better than I thought. Overall, it was a nice, relaxing experience. How I Got There I booked…

Documentary Review: The Three Identical Strangers

Assume Form

I feel like I should share my favorite songs, albums and artists more often because why not? James Blake who is one of my favorite artists recently released his new album. I feel like I never really know what to expect from him. Each body of work is typically different from the other because artists…

Just a thought…

Yesterday I was chilling and meditating. Sundays are a day where I tend to reflect and meditate on things going on in my life. It’s cathartic for me. I feel like it’s instrumental in helping me progress. One of the realizations that I came to about myself was that there is so much power in…

Fyre Fraud & Psychopathy

This past week Hulu released their Fyre Fraud documentary. The documentary was about one of the biggest festival flops that happened back in 2017.
