I will be interviewing a woman, named Brenda Gilbreth, who indeed had the deadly Covid- 19 virus back in May, she indeed answered these questions when she had the coronavirus, in which I will be asking her about her experience, symptoms, and more.

Texas Roadhouse Review

Texas Roadhouse Review

October 8, 2020

At least, once a month, my friends and I go to, Texas Roadhouse, at the Prosper location, because it is indeed our favorite restaurant to go to. Once, we get there, there is usually a long wait, sometimes up to even one or two hours. But, once we get sat, the service is amazing from there. They have delicious, steaming hot rolls, that they serve you right as you sit down, and very kind and helpful servers as well. Even though, some time’s our server takes a while to come back to us. My frie...

The Iconic R.B.G

The Iconic R.B.G

September 30, 2020

As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse. In the already catastrophically, abominably, irreversibly, almost-comically terrible year that this has been, another crushing blow was dealt upon humanity through the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. To say that this is one of the worst things to have occurred amidst a sea of grievous occurrences this year is both valid and testimony to the truly spectacular person R.B.G was and what the loss of her symbolizes.   Born in the eternally-moving city of Brookly...

Milestone Decision Separates Church and State in Sudan

September 14, 2020

For most of Western society, the ability to practice one’s own religion without interference from the government is a luxury that is frequently taken for granted. After all, it has been an ingrained right, and indeed the foundation, in which certain countries were built upon. The same could not be said for Sudan, who up till now, was grasped by 30 stringent years of enforced Islamic rule. Now however, non-existent religious boundaries are a dreaded thing of the past for the African country, as Sud...
