“Kiss me, Hardy.” How can words — nothing more than stains of ink on a page — drive pain into someone so deeply and so easily, like a knife into butter? People hide behind the words, and we are our worst enemies. Sometimes we can’t help but hurt people. The biggest culprits, in my pu...

On occasion, the stars will align both cruelly and perfectly: the difference between a letter grade in a class is just a few points. For some, this is not a problem; their grade will be bumped up thanks to the extra credit they received from not using their allotted bathroom passes for that semester. For o...

Finding brand new music from a never-before-heard band is like striking gold, even though I’ve never been gold-mining, and I’m splurging on all of their music. I was first hit by this feeling while eating at Chipotle with my best friend. We realized we really liked the song that was playing,...

The Post has been hailed as a political drama full of conflicted characters and relevant to the times. While I do see the drama part about how “democracy dies in darkness,” I felt no love lost on any of the star-studded cast, nor did director Steven Spielberg explore the full complexity of the issue....
