Happy Pride Month! One tradition I have for Pride since coming out, is to watch primarily queer films, or works by queer directors and actors during the month.

Not Just an Alternative Option

Roe v Wade is vital to the health and well-being of people across America and I stand in solidarity and fight for the decision to be held by the people who are in the horrible situation of deciding if they should have an abortion.

Celebrating the hoildays is a part of the human existance to mark the passing of time and moments of our journey on this rock.

Reminiscing 2020

I can’t believe that 2020 is finally coming to a close! This year has been the Takabisha Rollercoaster of years.

Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden.  Summary: So naturally, post debate has been a whirl wind of conversations, memes, arguments and finger pointing.

Update 2020

It’s been a while since I shared a post. The last was the letter to the 2019-2020 University Activities Board (UAB) Team in lieu of our end of the year banquet.
