You guys – remember when 4chan was a thing? It might very well still be, but I don’t run in those circles anymore and I think the last time I heard someone utter the word “4chan” out loud may have been years ago. Nevertheless – I was trying to clean up my computer when I saw this essay I wrote during my junior year of college. It was for a media and communications course. I […]
Given that the period between Thanksgiving and New Year's is peak engagement season, I've had plenty of opportunity to observe the different ways people express their commitment to be with someone for the rest of their lives.
