Turns Out, I Still Know Nothing…

Looking back at my original blog post, titled Turns Out, I Know Nothing… I wrote that, “From the first two classes, it’s clear to me that this class isn’t going to be a walk in the park. It’s going to take a lot of effort to be able to handle and control the workload for this […]

Retail Isn’t Dead: How Walmart Plans to Stay Relevant

According to Taylor Van Hare and Walmart representatives Jacqui Canney and Brian Baker, retail isn’t dead. Personally, I think they’re 100% right, but one of the main topics we’ve Tweeted, blogged, and discussed I class is Amazon’s looming world domination and the death of retail stores.

The Washington Capital’s Newest Partner: Alexa

Amazon is taking over the world. I can’t say I’m surprised–I’ve watched it happen. Amazon’s world domination is something that I have been able to slowly observe throughout my time on campus.

If you’re a girl (or a guy) who has an Instagram, you know what it’s like to compare yourself to others. You’ve probably looked at the explore page and seen endless pictures of tan girls in bikinis with thousands of likes. You’ve seen celebrities, Instagram models, and girls you go to school with posing in […]

Turns Out, I Know Nothing…

I’m sure I’m not the only person in the class that was utterly confused on the very first day of class. Don’t get me wrong, I was definitely overwhelmed and baffled at the thought of remembering exactly what Professor Kane expected of us weekly and throughout the semester, but that wasn’t the real reason I […]
