We made it! Today is April 26th, better known on UNC’s campus as LDOC. After a junior year full of ups and downs, we reached the end. I think it went by much too quickly. In two weeks, I’ll be saying goodbye to some close friends, watching as they scatter across the country to start […]Read More Getting Closer to the End
Books and movies appeal to people of all ages. Every generation has a series that defined their childhood. For me, it was Harry Potter. I started reading it at nine and got the seventh book as a tenth birthday present two days after it was released. My series of books, and later movies, have travelled […]Read More Channeling My Inner Child
Why does the American government choose not to learn from our mistakes? I could be referring to any thing but today, I’m specifically talking about gun control. Or lack thereof. If you’re wondering if it was another mass shooting that led me to this topic, thankfully you’d be wrong. At least today, that’s not the […]Read More Hope for a Faster Government
I’ve worked at Carolina Performing Arts my entire college career. I’ve spent countless hours in Memorial Hall as an usher, making sure that patrons have the best experience possible at every performance they attend. As the company has grown and added new venues, I’ve grown too, from usher to manager. I love every part of […]Read More Leader or Friend?
With the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones just a week away, the internet is rife with speculations about what will happen to our favorite characters. From Cersei to Arya to Grey Worm, fans have been eagerly waiting to see who will win the Game of Thrones. So I thought I’d share my thoughts […]Read More The End of an Era
Living in the bubble of Chapel Hill, the Silent Sam controversy engulfed us all this year. We live and study in such a polarized state that it’s difficult to comprehend the fact that there are people outside of this little bubble that support us. Sometimes its good to get the reminder that there is good […]Read More The Impact of Our Voices
The voice of Thomas Jefferson: Can we get back to politics please? (Every action… just kidding, I’m not going launch into the entire Hamilton discography). I realized that in my first post I had mentioned that I’d talk about politics and how utterly ridiculous it all was and I haven’t! Not that nothing’s happened, I […]Read More So no Russia. Now what?
Like most people in America, my roommates and I are on the Game of Thrones binge, desperately rewatching every episode in preparation for the season premiere. I’ve watched it all and I know exactly what happens but that doesn’t stop me from feeling all the emotions I felt the first time around. Unfortunately, this also […]Read More Femininity Can Also Be Strength
After yesterday’s tardiness, I woke up early to catch a bus to Miami Beach. I ate my leftover bagel from JP’s and started my day without coffee (gasp!). The bus arrived 20 minutes later than the scheduled time (thanks Broward County) and it took me two hours with a transfer to get to Miami Beach. […]Read More Last Day of The Personal Growth Solo Trip
Ah, the first beach-less solo day. Waking up, I realized I was sunburnt. Extremely sunburnt. I somehow didn’t notice it yesterday but it had set in overnight and putting on clothes was excruciating. Anyway, I woke up (a tad late) and rushed to get ready. I failed at finding a brunch place I could walk […]Read More Day 3 of The Personal Growth Solo Trip
