Eat Mor Chikin (Or Not) – My Take on Chick-fil-a

I never get political, especially on the internet, but why are people boycotting Chick-fil-a like it’s their job? There isn’t a corporation anywhere that prescribes to every single religious belief or political stance an individual can possess. Where were these people when Chinese workers were committing suicide while they were making their precious iPhones? Sure … Continue reading

Summer is Here

Prior to these last few weeks I have been told of the mythical New York heat in the summer but have yet to experience anything than highs in the upper seventies. That all came to an end in a matter of 24 hours. One day it was 71 and breezy and the next day was … Continue reading

My Thoughts on MLK Day

No, I didn’t grow up in the 60s. No, I haven’t experienced racial segregation. But, I deal with race on a daily basis. At School: At UNC, diversity isn’t just encouraged, it’s expected. The campus is a melting pot of different colors, creeds and cultures so it is impossible not to run into someone from … Continue reading
