Did you hear? Amy Winehouse died! How many times do you think this question was asked followed by an answer that is prompted, not by actual intrigue, but because it seems like social information that needs to be shared regardless of the other person’s interest? Personally, I fell prey to this 40+ times. Why does [...]

Internet Language and how it’s changing the way we perceive emotion online

Travel Journal: Warshington DC

Day 1:

Its an interesting feeling when you come speeding over a beautiful city in an airplane. Your checking out the view and its wonderful, especially since its about three in the afternoon, when the light is just rounding the even spot in the sky and becomes slightly dimmer.
