I was born in Guangzhou, the third largest city in China. I spent most of my lifetime there, and came to the United States three years ago after finishing high school. I studied in upstate New York for two years before I came to Boston. Here I had totally different experiences. These are the similarities […]

The fashion industry is characterized by cycling seasons that consist of either Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter, which leaves models running from casting to casting. The most unique trait of the fashion industry is that things are constantly changing. The only constant is that it’s not constant. It sounds paradoxical (and it probably is) but the one […]

This semester will be my first and last time in Boston since I’m an exchange student from South Korea. I currently take a lot of courses in the Metropolitan College with lots of other international students. At first, it was hard to become friends and get along with them.

With all of its menacing effects so far (displacement of both wildlife and people in the Arctic region is just one downfall), we still have yet to hear the Republicans utter a word, except to denounce the existence of it, but will […]

If you’re a hoverboard rider, please stop. I have decided they are ridiculous and useless, so please stop riding them. First of all, they don’t even hover; they have wheels.
