By Katrina Liu Few songs still affect me the same way they did when I first heard them. Songs often become stale after you play them over and over again. However, it’s been more than three years since I first listened to “In Your Atmosphere” by John Mayer, and it’s still as beautiful as it […]

By Katrina Liu Have you ever heard a song that just makes you want to dance? A song that is so unbelievably catchy that the first time you hear it, you think “wow, this song is addicting”? Or maybe you’re like me, a dancer of 14 years, and automatically make up choreography in your head […]
