Get Over Your Tattoo Judgements

You know you've judged someone for their tattoo at least once. Maybe it's the placement or what the tattoo is. An employer may not hire you because of your tattoo, or they may make you cover it up to be professional. I have no problem with covering it up, but to not get hired because of your tattoo is ridiculous. It is a part of you and represents something important in your life. It's such a stereotype to say that people who have tattoos are trouble-makers or bad people. Tattoos should be off limits for people to attack you for. That's your business, your body, your history, and your money. My tattoos mean so much to me and I plan on getting two more. I might even get a full arm sleeve because I love tattoos that much. You can read mine because they are both scripture tattoos, but you will never know the true meaning behind them. There is so much meaning behind both of my tattoos and that is my business. It is art and it is truly beautiful. You don't have to like tattoos or have them yourself, but that doesn't give you the right to judge someone because they do. Don't stare at them and don't ask us what they mean unless you're very close to us. They are addicting, but mine are not out of impulse. Mine remind me every day why I am alive and who I am alive for. Love everyone as your own. I promise you'll never live in anger again.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
