When being a journalist means you also have to be spy-ish and philospher-ish

In the past I've subscribed to two magazines, but I cancelled both of them because I didn't regularly read them. The problem was that they were magazines I wanted to have read, not ones I actually wanted to read. It was similar to how I sometimes feel towards reading classics. One of the two was… Continue reading When being a journalist means you also have to be spy-ish and philospher-ish

Imagine there was an invisible skyscraper everywhere on earth

The seeds of this post started when I saw that a newsletter I'm subscribed to made a mini-series of five videos about 5G. I had no idea what 5G really was, so I made my dad watch them with me.

You'll see what I mean.… Continue reading I strongly believe that everyone has a superpower

So I don’t know how you’ve been feeling about the news, but

These past two weeks, the breakdown of what my friends and I have been texting about would be 15% Jonathan's new job at a boba shop, 5% Tiktoks, 20% miscellaneous, and 60% the news. We've been talking a lot about the police, the protests, and racism. It's as if around one or two o'clock most… Continue reading So I don’t know how you’ve been feeling about the news, but
