       For this experiment I’d like to thank cruel middle schoolers, weird people on the internet, and people with questionable taste buds who suggested these interesting food combinations for me to try.

     Phineas and Ferb gave me an unrealistic expectation of summer. Think about it. Every book, movie and show dealing with summer is a collection of “the best summer ever!” with fabulous adventures to elude the fact that reality is boring. On that dreaded last day of freedom in August, you...

I remember my sister coming home from the makeup and cosmetics store Sephora blabbering about the sales lady who explained how makeup benefits girls. I was young and didn’t care for makeup, but one thing stuck with me. “Makeup does not make you beautiful, it only strengthens the parts of you that are alrea...

Enjoy your temporary stay in America, people of color, because the system applied here has been built to dehumanize and kill you with no reparations for the perpetrator, who is typically a white man. The problem of racism has been talked about, tweeted about, and protested about in recent years with ...

Bloop. It’s late at night and you’ve just received a Twitter notification. Your classmate, Sally, made a tweet. A brief sigh escapes your lips, your finger tapping onto the notification lightly. You read three words followed by a crying emoji: “I wanna die” Normally, you’d reply, a...

I was on top of the world, literally. One foot covered Ireland while the other floated on top of the ocean, and the condensation of my Slurpee cup was making it rain somewhere over Norway.      Piper, my best friend since having met on the very misshapen Florida in the third grade, traced Afri...

After having a three month break, entering the building to two people lip-locking is somewhat shocking and not something I’ve missed. I’ve yet to figure out what compels young people to go out in public and decide it’s okay to proclaim their undying love for each other physically, but it’s n...

Turning 16 for most is seen as a time to break free from the imaginary chains of childhood and head out on the open road.
