I’m still researching that piece, and it will be coming soon since the rabbit hole of corporate welfare and various […]Read More Netflix and Chill?
I’m sure we’ve all seen the New Year’s posts about cutting people off who no longer bring good things into your life, and this is my take on those memes. A common thing you will hear in motivational works is that we are the culmination of the top 5 people we usually hang around with.

You’re in college, […]Read More I Went Trick-Or-Treating at 24; Or, Why Do Millenials Like Kid Stuff So Much?
In part one, we discussed a few problems the “good” public school I attended had. My experience there was overwhelmingly awful, but there were a few teachers who I believe deserve some recognition for the efforts and teaching styles. They were the few lights illuminating an otherwise dark, decrepit, and evil space of rotting teenage […]Read More A Few Good Teachers: W4SWE Part 2
