A man appears on the screen: greyish brown hair, blue eyes, black tux. He holds a rose in his hand and tries his best to flash a smile at the camera. Intense music plays in the background, broken up by a monologue of the man’s journey to find true love. You aren’t listening to him though, because if yo...

As I was growing up, watching television was easy. I turned on Disney Channel and there was always flow of episodes playing, most of the time allowing for me to watch for hours on end of the same show, regardless of their order. Although, as I got older, my taste moved from Disney to more adult shows...

There are few feelings like being somewhere truly peaceful. One of my favorite places in the world is my extended family’s rustic cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I’ve only stayed there twice but those two weeks have stuck with me. There’s no electricity, no running water, no internet, wifi or...

It’s almost an ingenious concept - who doesn’t want to share their 2am ambitions on the internet? - and yet, as of 2016, the company has lost $2 billion since debuting over ten years...

In my mind, it was just last week I sat in my freshman year tutorial class writing my “Senior Self” letter, surrounded by juniors and seniors laughing and joking about colleges and AP classes. Time flies, doesn’t it? That was three and a half years ago. Now, I’m a second semester senior. I...
