This past year was one of the best years of film that I can remember, and I don’t say that every year like Apple does upon the newest, best iPhone whatever number to release. It truly was a fantastic year for movies, due in large part to unique stories, greenlighted by independent studios such as A24. Some honorable mentions are “The King,” “Joker,” “Uncut Gems,” and “Marriage Story.” Moreover, here are five of my favorite films of the year:
Is there something in your life you're passionate about? Something in your life you dedicated your all in? For me, it was dance. Dancing has always been a part of my life since I was a little girl. I danced while I was at my happiest, I danced while I was at my lowest, and I even danced in my sleep. That's how much dance meant to me.

Enculturation is the process by which people learn the dynamics of their surrounding culture and acquire values and norms appropriate or necessary in that culture and worldviews. I will be revealing my religious identity and how going through this enculturation affected my life. I hope to reach other Christians that may relate with my story, and/or show non-Christians how I live as a Christian. There are many different outlooks on what a Christian may be, but what matters most is what is true to you and following your own values in a healthy way. Therefore, I hope sharing how I became a true Christian impacts you in a positive and motivational way.

Here I am, finally sitting down and looking back at 2019. To be honest, as everyone was recapping on their 2019 on the last day, I didn’t want to look back on it. I knew that if I did, I would have to go through the pain, trauma, and the tears again. Instead of reflecting the ups and downs of 2019 (there were many downs), here is a letter of goodbye to 2019. A year that had hurt yet helped me grow.
Rail transportation is considered one of the most environmentally friendly and efficient modes of transportation. While it has a relatively have a low carbon footprint, there may be more to the story. Tracing back to where rail companies are investing their money reveals a whole different side to the industry–a much less environmentally friendly one.
International climate change negotiations may appear fruitless and frustrating, but there is hope for action in the state of Wisconsin following the recent COP25 and the first meeting of Governor Evers’ Task Force on Climate Change. It is important to see state and local governments stand up for climate action despite the federal government’s clear disengagement during this critical time.
