For the love of pod

As a thrice-weekly commuter, I find myself getting tired of the same old music again and again. Especially when stuck in traffic going 5 miles per hour, I find it hard to jam out to music knowing the equally as exhausted commuter to my left is staring me down. So I've resorted to listening to …

The moon is a hologram

Conspiracy theories have always fascinated me. I know that science and statistics (or whatever) tells us that they aren't real, but part of me is enthralled with the 0.01% chance that they're based in truth.

Welcome to my blog — who knows where we go from here

As a second-semester senior at UNC, I assumed everything about post-graduation would be much clearer. You're supposed to coast through second semester with the promise that you have something lined up after graduation, right? (Spoiler alert: not so much.) Surrounded by people securing jobs immediately following graduation, I'm actually finding that things seem less clear …
