Letters to Stories: Behind “Perfect”

This poem has to be the most personal yet. However, the title drew from many inspirations. The first inspiration is from another of Gabbie Hanna's songs, "Perfect Day (A True Story)". The second inspiration drew from the musical Next to Normal and one of the songs found on the soundtrack, "Perfect for You." These two songs were once found on one of my Spotify playlists, and one day I found myself listening to these two songs, and my mind lingered on the word "perfect." However, I decided to have the theme of this poem be quite different from those two works.

Halo Beauty: His Body and Brain Booster: What did it do?

I hear people are usually skeptical of supplements that claim to enhance the quality of one's body and brain. People are especially skeptical when it comes to brain boosting supplements.

Current Events: the state of Sudan

It has been some time since Sudan was last covered, and to be honest, still a severely underwhelming amount of public outcry and mainstream media coverage about it. Just because there is "no news" per se, it doesn't speak on the current state of the nation. This time, there is more news, all from an exclusive interview from...

Halo Beauty: Kiwi Seed Booster – Does it boost all skin types?

A few months later, Halo Beauty came out with a skin exclusive vitamin for those who only wanted to focus on improving the quality of their skin, known as the Kiwi Seed Booster. Along with all the ingredients from the original HSN supplements geared towards skin, they added a few more ingredients for this exclusive skin supplement to really ensure amazing results.
