New Year but Every Time They Say “New Me” I Die on the Inside

I haven’t written a post in a while, around eight months I believe. A lot has happened since last spring when I last posted. I graduated high school – meaning I have now completed the most basic requirement to be a functioning/productive member of society; that is worth at least one pat on the back. I…

An Introduction to Nautical Themes

Spring is an interesting season. It starts with a warming of the winter cold that transitions the occasional, light snowfall into torrential downpours sometimes continuing for a week with no end. Contrasting the few weeks of rain, on occasion the cumulonimbus clouds dissipate to reveal a scintillating sun as the temperature simultaneously rises into the increasingly warm 80s….

Last month’s…

The winter solstice marks a major turning point for us because the longer days allows us more opportunity to show off the style. Soon, 4:48 will…

Help, I Can’t Color

Relax, we know you haven’t taken an art class since freshman year and we know you don’t understand matching colors any better than Brad Pitt understands how to ugly. We aren’t going to bore you with a color wheel to explain analogous and complementary colors; we know you wouldn’t read that snore-fest anyways. Instead, we found…

You Just Woke Up

There it is. Wait, it’s following you. Is “it” you? Is that really you? Unfortunately, it seems so. When did this happen? You don’t realize when it began (does anything really have a beginning? Is time a flat circle?), it just did. Today you woke up and you have this “weird” want to look good. That’s not gay,…
