I strongly believe that everyone has a superpower

I define superpower as something that's inherently part of you. It's not a skill that was learned. And it's different from talent. Many times talent is paired with hard work, but hard work can't be paired with a superpower. Well, I guess you could, but it would be pretty strange. You'll see what I mean.… Continue reading I strongly believe that everyone has a superpower

The virtual games I’ve been playing with my friends

What's the point of having friends besides having people to play games with? I can't wait until we're seventy years old and playing aggressive games of Uno and Mafia. Until then and until I can see humans in person again, these are the games I've been playing with people while zooming.

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.

They say that everybody that was alive has a 9/11 story, they say that the generation before had JFK's assassination and that the generation before that… Continue reading Five friends, five coronavirus diaries

Interesting questions to ask your friends

When I search for questions to ask friends, all the lists seem to overlap in their interesting but mostly impractical suggestions. For example, the first one I saw on Google was: "Do you think you're brave?" They're the type of question that is temperature-sensitive. They only work best at certain times and in certain places.… Continue reading Interesting questions to ask your friends

Four of my friends talk about songs that mean something to them

When I asked my friends to write about a song they love, I mostly just wanted them to write my blog post for me, but dude, they really came through. Maybe a little too much. Just kidding! Thanks guys. This is awesome. An editorial note before we start: 1) Everybody has a pen name except… Continue reading Four of my friends talk about songs that mean something to them
