Editorial: All feelings are valid

Editorial: All feelings are valid

Feelings suck.  There I said it. I really hate having feelings.  If I was super into astrology I would probably say that I feel feelings so intensely because I am a Pisces.  But everyone has feelings, and everyone must learn how to navigate through life with their feelings.  Something I noticed, more so this year, is that everyone is constantly […]

Editorial: Is it too late to talk musical physics?

Damn. No idea what to write about. But this is already super late (hopefully Emily won’t fire me) so it seems as good a time as any to let my mind wander and type whatever I’m thinking. If I’m lucky, this may turn into a transcript of an interesting internal dialogue or monologue about something. 3 a.m. is a wonderful […]

Lately, I’ve realized that I have plenty of people around me to love. Something even better is that […]

And with these tricky scenarios come the possibility of being stringed along. This isn’t just a problem for ladies, I’m sure – but I’ve definitely […]
