I Hate Goodbyes

The time has come for my last blog post.  It is a refreshing and somewhat saddening feeling.  I am glad to be one step closer to completing my MBA, but I will miss the rich discussions that were brought up in class, tweets, and blogposts.  I will also miss the various snacks that were available […]

Finals Ruined My Discover Weekly Playlist

Every semester before midterms and finals, I find myself spending hours upon hours re-reading course materials, studying, and writing papers.  To keep myself focused, I listen to my Spotify “Reading” playlist.  My “Reading” playlist is the third playlist that I created on Spotify (The first being “EDM” and the second being “Oldies Ballads”, don’t judge).  […]

From AIM to Now

My thoughts and feelings towards social media have changed throughout my life.  I clearly remember the first time I engaged in an early form of social media/networking.  It was 1998, I was 11 years old entering the 6th grade.  On the first day of school, my friends could not stop talking about AOL Instant Messenger […]
