7 Binge-Worthy Movie Series For The Summer

I have been wasting away the last week sitting on the couch staring at a screen and eating the fridge and cabinets in my house dry. Do I have regrets? Yes, but not about this. After a long school year of tireless hours of studying, I finally have time to relax.

Usually, summers start off glamorous; you maybe start off with a trip or have the idea that you are going to do something new every day (even though you have lived in the same town your entire life and there hasn't been anything new your whole life). You sleep in later than expected and the couch looks far more appealing than making yourself presentable to go out into the world; this is the time where I break out my binge movies.

There are certain series that I can watch on repeat and never get bored. I know them all by heart and I am not afraid to recite them if you test me. For the days you never want to leave your couch, I assure you these movies will fill the hours with enjoyment.

1. Die Hard franchise

It's always a good day to die hard.

2. Scary Movie franchise

Every time I watch these movies my IQ drops exponentially, but I also can't help but laugh at how ridiculous they are. I will watch these movies forever!

3. Mission Impossible franchise

Even though the first movie is so different it almost feels like it isn't part of the same franchise, they are a set. I grew up watching these movies and I honestly probably will die watching these movies.

4. Indiana Jones Franchise

Indiana Jones only got better as the movies came out, even the latest one in 2008 was amazing. The first movie came out almost forty years ago, but it is utterly timeless.

5. Harry Potter franchise

I think many people can relate to me on the topic of Harry Potter. The books were my life growing up, and the movies have their own special place in my heart. Any day of the week I could binge these movies without hesitation.

6. Bourne franchise

I just love watching these movies because they make me want to take martial arts or something. Jason Bourne is a BADA$$.

7. Marvel Cinematic Universe

With the recent release of Avengers: Infinity War I am in a kind of Marvel frenzy. There are now 19 MCU movies not including the previous Spider-man movies and Deadpool, so I think that is a full day of binge-worthy movies.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
