AwkAnxAvg 7: A Toast to the New Year

Knock, knock Is it still Monday? I was hoping to sleep until Wednesday. My room only lit by the screen saver of my laptop or the occasional update of my phone. Why I am awake? I set the agenda perfectly; I have both a comforter and a soft throw blanket. "What are you still doing [...]

The Things I Didn’t Say

September 2018: Thrills and Exhaustion

I cannot believe September is almost over! I tend to lose track of time, but I do feel I blinked in July and suddenly October is knocking.

Childish Gambino and the Auditory Dilemma

Back in March 2018, it was announced that Childish Gambino would be going on tour. They also announced that this would be his last and he would be retiring from touring once it was complete. My ears perked up, I knew Austin and I had to score tickets. We have been longtime Donald Glover fans [...]
