Addressing Consumerist Guilt

Photo by Isabel Cruz By Isabel Cruz I don’t think it’s controversial to say that Jeff Bezos is an evil, greedy capitalist.

Grieving For Who I Once Was

Photo by Lyra By Lyra Flickering in between life and death throughout my adolescent years, my childhood self has finally passed away.  My denial state of grief lasted quite a long time while in quarantine isolation. Remarks such as “You have to think about the future” or “I know how you feel” became monotonously nausea-inducing… Continue reading Grieving For Who I Once Was

Obsession With Improvement

Photo by Kleigh Balugo By Adrien Martino I’ve never been the type to make resolutions in the new year. Of course, I do have goals for myself and my life. But there is no prompt needed to compel me into improving myself. I suppose I first started setting goals around the age of fourteen. Not… Continue reading Obsession With Improvement
