Cold-Blooded Interview

If I thought my chances of getting this internship were good prior to this phone call, I have lost the will to live since hanging up the phone. I had practiced for this interview.

Feminism Doesn’t Hate All Men, It Empowers All Women

Everyday is Christmas by Sia

When it comes to Christmas music, I'm a complete Scrooge. By that, I mean I try not to get into the holiday spirit as soon as I'm finished with my meal on Thanksgiving. People that can go from sleeping off their Thanksgiving feast to belting out Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You"… Continue reading Everyday is Christmas by Sia
