September 2022 Rewind
Did you miss any of my blog posts this month? Don't worry; I'm always here to keep you caught up!
September has flown by remarkably quickly. I started the month with a movie review and watched the movie Labor Day celebration of the holiday by the same name. Being so busy, I thought about comfort shows making it easier to enjoy media while working nonstop. I focused on some great authors this month. I reminisced about how Roald Dahl's work inspired my career choices and researched poetry with Rupi Kaur's book, The Sun and her Flowers.
September 15th marked the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and a month of posts celebrating Hispanic culture and achievements in media. I started with Hispanic representation and stereotypes in media. I also shared in making one of my boyfriend's favorite foods, his mother's arepas.
This month's featured artist was Mirza, a Puerto Rican woman making her music and business dreams come true. We discussed her upcoming EP, "Highway to Heartbreak," and how it will lead into her album "Welcome to Heartbreak."
