Meet Your New Favorite Song: Sunday Candy

It started off a day like any other; I put a random Spotify playlist on shuffle, began my early commute, and mentally prepared myself for the day ahead. I was deep in thought (probably anticipating what I was going to eat for lunch) when the sounds of Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s nostalgic new […]

Use Your Voice

With the wave of the public’s interest in civil rights, it’s hard to avoid the topic when using social media. Trends like #blacklivesmatter, #yesallwomen and #illridewithyou flooded Twitter.

Facebook Trends

I think the most annoying thing in cyberspace would have to be these stupid trends on Facebook. Also known as challenges, the only limits they’re pushing are my frustration ones. Fitness challenge, ice challenge, cinnamon challenge, the fire challenge. Please tell me someone else is seeing how ridiculous this is becoming? It starts out so innocent! The 30 […]

How many of you spend countless hours on the internet looking for things to do or watch? I know I do. While twiddling my thumbs online, specifically YouTube, I came across a set of videos by a one Mhizz32flavorz (spelled just like that!). Apparently, “Mhizz32flavorz” is a girl named Melanie from Texas who “twerks”. She […]

Basketball in its purest form: Jeremy Lin in Taiwan

Women’s sports demand respect

Everyone knows the men’s sports are more fun to watch than the women’s sports. Right? Men are better, faster and stronger. That seems to be the train of thought of the overwhelming majority in the USA, but after watching the London 2012 Olympics, I beg to differ. The ladies dominated the USA gold medal count, […]

4 Months After KONY 2012

Since then, we’ve heard of its founder getting arrested for inappropriate behavior in public, of its event “Cover the Night”, perhaps as well as its follow-up video “Beyond Famous”, that […]
