My name is Jessica.
English Literature and Creative Writing.
I like nature, I like books and films.
I study. I write. I sit back and watch.
I believe in Jesus Christ and Dave Matthews.
I like my long hair and my freckles,
but the rest of me is whatever.
Boiler Up, Hammer Down.
Alberto Barrera, Poet and Screenwriter
From the Globe and Mail:
Inflation is running at over 50 per cent, a raging black market buys dollars at more than 10 times the official rate, domestic industry has all but shut down; there are critical shortages of many consumer staples, including corn flour for arepas, the national breakfast. TV stations – now all state-controlled – are full of ads that alternately denounce capitalism or show square-shouldered actors talking about how they don’t hoard and buy only what they need. Billboards boast of how socialist Venezuela has never been stronger; yet almost no one has toilet paper in their bathrooms.
There’s some serious dystopian shit going on in the world. Pray for Venezuela!
