Issa Rae Presents #ShortFilmSunday
daya e dodson

I have always been a lover of films. Anything for the arts I totally love. All this viewing is from the works of Netflix of course. One of my favorite writers/directors is an extremely talented woman named Issa Rae. She is best known as being the creator of a Youtube series called Awkward Black Girl and going on the create, write, and star in her HBO hit Insecure ( which is one of my favorite shows).

She also works on many other projects one of them being Short Film Sunday. Short Film Sundays is content Issa Rae has on her channel where she invites filmmakers to submit and be featured on the channel. So if you are into film making I would check that out by the way.

Some of my honorable mentions as followed are:


Sinking Ships by Marian Mereba.

Issa Rae also has a section within Short Film Sundays Called "We Are-"

The "we are" parts changes for each film being

We Are - Artists


We Are - Friends

Both are pretty interesting films. But furthermore, if you just explore the Short Film Sundays in the world of Youtube you will find all sorts of content. The films may not be super active like a action pack motion picture but they are deep and meaningful. They just display the everyday life of people of color in different scenarios.

So if you are just looking for deep content to explore on Youtube I highly recommend checking Issa Rae's Short Film Sunday out. It is well worth it!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
