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 […]

I think 6 days was just right; any longer and I probably would have been miserable at the lack of meaningful in-person exchanges and creature comforts. A girl can only […]
