I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never seen an episode of “Black Mirror.” My pop culture repertoire was last updated in 2010, and not in the quirky way that means I am endearingly out of the loop, but in the “it’s honestly shameful that you can’t name a current cultural trend” way. […]

   As a writer, I have a complicated relationship with grammar. Technically, I know proper grammar and how to write sentences, but on the flip side, I didn’t know how to use commas correctly until sophomore year of high school.

There are a few reasons why I started to read “I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban”: Malala Yousafzai is 20 years old now, and it’s pretty cool that I’m reading about the story and accomplishments of someone who’s the same age as me. She was […]
