Yet here we are, about three weeks later finally sitting down, ready to talk about it. I listened to the cover album this past week while...

The topic for this article could make for a compelling 200-page memoir in and of itself but I’ve been tossing this concept around in my head for awhile and I suppose it’s time I spilled some guts before they spill themselves for me.

While I sat and thought about my 2018, I realized that I couldn’t remember things that clearly. But I could (almost) always link a song back to a moment. Bear with me. January: “Timmy’s Prayer” Sampha I said goodbye to my loved ones for 4 months. Set off to study abroad in Prague. Nervous. Nervous. NERVOUS. There ...

There really isn’t any way I can describe this song clearly. It is basically just one big groovy feel fest. I picked this song because the first line mentions Hermann Hesse who was a German-born Swiss poet, novelist, and painter who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1946. This is an arti...

This past weekend, I finally found the time to pay a visit to the local movie theater, overpriced popcorn in hand and a purse full of candy from CVS snuck in over my shoulder. With last mo...
