Hello! I am a writer that enjoys writing about media and prose. I reside in Sacramento with my furry four-legged son who enjoys to dance with me because literally nobody is watching us.

Political Values

You’re eating Thanksgiving leftovers at your parents’ home or with a loved one and you can’t help but remember the night before when that certain relative started going on and on about their political beliefs. Many of you contested to their opposing beliefs, many of you just heard and tried to move on to not…

TW: I don’t recommend anyone reading this in an anxious state, come back later love. I was at work, I sat in my office chair and looked over the day’s invoices I had to finish. The night before I slept three to four hours after returning from a rowdy night from the bar with friends.…

COVID-19 and Homelessness

What a time to be alive. Almost every person has used some sort of bingo joke or underlined the fact this is such a bizarre point in time. The words “pandemic,” “quarantine,” and “Coronavirus,” were one of the most top searched words according to Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year 2020. Almost every person in some…

Moonball

She was losing control. She started to panic. She was close to the net and smashed the overhead shot but regrettably aimed out of the court. It was my game and serve. She started to tighten her muscles more, often wiping the sweat from her forehead. I looked for my sweet spot, I never had…
