Hurry Sickness

How to Not Lose Yourself in a Relationship (and other parts of my day) ❤️☀️

I’ve been reading a lot of anti-Valentine rhetoric, and I think the other side must be heard: the side of cheesiness, of posting pictures for the sake of it, of listening to Taylor Swift and dancing around your room. I am a cynic by nature, but on valentine’s day, I transform into a red-and-pink wearing,Continue reading “How to Not Lose Yourself in a Relationship (and other parts of my day) ❤️☀️”

Going Back to UCLA 🌇

Today, I visited UCLA, which is the school that I attended as an undergraduate. It has been aptly nicknamed a “ghosttown”; the once-lively sidewalks and soliciting on BruinWalk have been replaced by a somber and 6-foot apart reality.
