Holy Adaptability, Batman!

I feel like it has been forever since I have written a blog. I have a good reason though. A funny thing happened on the way to the start of my new school year. I got transferred. That’s right, exactly one week before the 1st day of school I was called into an office and […]

Snark Fail Vanity Fair Style

Vanity Fair today posted an article about Twitter, in particular Six intelligent Twitter women. The name of the article was America’s Tweethearts. Really Tweethearts? I should have stopped right there and banged my head into the wall (which thanks to this article I know uses 150 calories per hour). The article has created a little […]
