About:

Inspired by the Charlie Chaplin quote "A day without laughter is a day wasted," Infinitarisus  (Latin for “limitless laughter") is a personal blog that is infused with a lot of heart and a lot of humor.  Originally created when I was seventeen years old, I intended it to serve as practice for future entertainment journalism. It has since developed into a creative space with posts ranging from critical analyses of media content to personal stories about the many, many messes that accompany adulthood. Join me on my adventures!

10 Things I Learned from Completing the MCU Challenge

Taking a Leap, or How to Fall with Style

"Would I freeze up or chicken out when the time came? Should I eat breakfast that morning, or would that be a tragic error?
