Book Review | This Will Only Hurt a Little

I have been a fan of Busy Philipps since Freaks and Geeks. No, I didn’t watch the show in 1999 (I was ten). But I did start watching it maybe six years after it aired. I’ve even owned the DVD by the time I graduated high school. And when I saw that Victoria Schwab enjoyed Busy Philipps’s […]

Book Review | The Little Book of Feminist Saints

I spent twelve years in Catholic school, and during that time, I read countless versions of the little book of saints.
