Trevor Noah Born a Crime: The Review

Now, before I start this review, let me state that I’ve been a HUGE fan of Trevor from the moment I watched his first videos on YouTube. His comedy has been my form of therapy, a source of laughter and  an enlightening source of information; (I find myself well informed about American politics courtesy of

The Review: Blood & Treasure

Treasure hunts are fun right? I’m always down for a good movie or a TV series that incorporates fun-filled treasure hunts. However, my sole purpose here is to find out whether the latest installment joining the TV Fam is a ball of treasure or not. When a friend recommended this series to me, I had

Psyche Wellness

I Knocked on the door…this simple act represented my very last resort. “Come in.” A voice from the other side answered. I timidly walked in and said hey to the lady who’s office felt warm and her smile even warmer. “Take a sit on the couch I’ll be joining you in just a minute.” She
