Being the musically driven person I am, there’s always a song stuck in my head. As you can imagine, it gets pretty distracting when I’m trying to focus, and all I can hear in the back of my mind is the Spanish color song I learned when I was in kindergarten. “Red is rojo, green is verde, blue a...

I look over each response three times. I call my mom to look over it. I keep it open for weeks before I have the confidence to hit the “Submit” button. All I can do is stare at the screen and hope and pray for my future to answer me. I watch the clock as hours go by; that doesn’t work. I turn...

I have a confession to make – I am an addict… to the news, that is. Every day, I set my alarm for 35 minutes before I have to get up so I have enough time to read through the headlines of my Apple News app, along with the trending stories on social media.

Stop. Squint your eyes. Grab your remote and reverse the movie. Oh, I see it now. The minimal amount of screen time a LGBTQ+ relationship gets in a movie. Do you remember that hint in “Mamma Mia” (spoilers ahead) that Harry was gay after that weird, coded 30 second conversation? Or later, when he...
