When The Democrats Are Tired

Many American’s take pride in lighting up their fashion runways for politicians instead of models, with the third democratic presidential debate of the season set to take place we are guaranteed a spectacle. this election cycle I’ve remained silent, perhaps to a fault. I was so fervently invested in the last election I think I... Continue Reading →

What Is To Be Done? A Message to the Left

I imagined the mood of the American people this morning to be like a bad hangover where none of us were quite sure what we did last night. Instead I hardly remember ever seeing this much optimism and triumph in people's faces. It could be short-lived, or could be a prolonged sense of victory. But... Continue Reading →

Art as a Form of Escape

The classic problem of people hiding from their lives and retreating to art has fundamentally changed within the last few years. The typical portrayal was some slightly disillusioned child preferring to read their stories or paint a picture than go to class. This concept is littered throughout popular literature and film, but hardly ever captures... Continue Reading →

The goal is for a concentrated month in which participants aim for at least 50,000 words written during that month (even though novels are generally 80,000 words). However, they do admit that the length they choose makes most novels turn out to be... Continue Reading →

Participating in a democracy

With election season underway and the first debate for the democrats tonight, people are paying more attention to politics.

What a lot people tend to forget is that politics is not just relevant every... Continue Reading →
