Author: Sone’t Robinson

My name is Sone't Robinson and writing for me is an outlet. It's a way to be heard when I feel like my words have fallen on deaf ears. I write out of necessity as well as passion. I've used my pen to write my peace and paper has been the greatest listener I've ever met. I'd encourage even those who don't have a passion for writing or literature to do the same.

  1. I completely agree with you when it comes to Kate Mckinnon, however with just the sheer number of times that he’s been on the show I am counting Adam Driver as a Cast member at this point. And with that I say he is my favorite, he hosted it this week and the one about the plane is really good, I’d recommend you go watch it.

  2. I also put Kate Mckinnon in my top, she’s so funny. Also, I don’t know if you ever seen it, but I really like her movie Rough Night. It was a chaotic movie I watched with my older sisters, but it was interesting.
