I Blame My Tastebuds

By Kristan Tate It was about 9pm on a weekday, and I was eating Pop-TartsⓇ.

Serious is Hard

By Julius Alexander IV Writing serious articles is hard. Of the small amount of material I’ve written, it’s all been humorous (hopefully) and I’ve never really attempted an article pertaining to heavy, depressing, or thought-provoking subject matter.
