I wrote this essay for the New York Time's student editorial contest. The guidelines were to write 450 words or less that about an opinion you have. Yesterday was the last day (and also the day I submitted mine), but if you're interested in future similar things, here's a calendar of them. The Modern-day Magic… Continue reading On rest
I started listening to podcasts because of the blog ModernMrs.Darcy by Anne Bogel. For most of the week, the posts are all about reading and life, but every Tuesday, new episodes of her podcast, What Should I Read Next?, are dropped. When I first started reading her blog, I would check every Tuesday knowing there would be… Continue reading Three podcast recommendations

I remember in fourth grade for the girls' dance unit in P.E., Shake It Off came on and everybody around me screamed, and I had no idea what was going on. I just don't really listen to music-except for… Continue reading Fifteen songs I think I like
I solved the Rubix's cube for the first time(!!!!!!). I've wanted to learn how to solve a Rubix's cube for a really long time, but it didn't happen until last month. It was one of my goals last year, and I even borrowed Jonathan's cube as preparation, but nope. Nothing came to fruition. It just… Continue reading Life, lately (Rubix’s cubes & New York Times & March for Life)
