This past week
(First off, shoutout to everyone graduating this year :D! Most of everyone I know from high school is graduating this year! I would be graduating, but apparently have other priorities lol) As I’m writing this post, I’ve only gotten four hours of sleep last night, and 24 hours of sleep since Monday night. It took me a couple minutes to figure that because of how long this week has felt, and because...
In four weeks, this term will be over, and if I were a freshman I would be preparing for finals right before the summer break…in the middle of summer. That was me four years ago, when I was finishing my first year here at Drexel. In four weeks, I will be turning in my thesis proposal (ideally) and finally get that off of my to-do list and get on with my project. Four months from now, I will be...

Ms. Wagner has four years left lol). That is...

At the end of elementary school, I had a “falling out” (as a friend put it) with most of the people I thought were my friends and I still don’t know what caused it. I randomly start thinking about this when I see random updates on Facebook of the few that I added. The...

It is impossible to give a fuck, when you don’t give a fuck.
The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for...– Neil deGrasse Tyson, during his Reddit AMA (March 01, 2012)
This shit is like a drug. Literally. [[MORE]] Dopamine is a hormone that is produced in the body, and it is the cause of the joy one feels when they succeed at something. Many stimulants and drugs (like coke or meth) also act as agonists to dopamine receptors, reproducing that joy. So the reason I am talking about dopamine is that there is no feeling better than when dopamine is released....
