We’ve all said it. Oh my god, she makes me want to kill myself. We’ve all done it, extending our pointer finger out with our thumb up, bringing it to our head. Bang. It’s all a joke right?

As a military brat, I’ve lived in a few contrasting environments. From sunny San Diego, to the scorching Mojave Desert, to the swamps of southern Maryland, I’ve pretty much seen it all. Even though I can easily adapt to new environments and love traveling, it’s not exactly thrilling to be told wh...

A couple months ago, in the morning of the election’s aftermath, I awoke to a gentle rain tapping on my roof and slipping off the leaves, and the news that Donald Trump won this year’s election against Hillary Clinton. But, I was not sure how to view this omen. Was it akin to rain on one’s wedd...
