A Weekend of Music – Preparing for Music Midtown

I haven’t actually been to a music festival – I’ve been to day events with lots of bands – or Hopscotch which is in my home town and I get to sleep in my own bed at night, but I’ve never been to one where I will be out of my comfort zone and fighting… Continue reading A Weekend of Music – Preparing for Music Midtown

A Year Without Whirligigs: Remembering Vollis Simpson.

I had the pleasure of meeting Vollis my freshman year of college. I had been taking a journalism class, getting a feel for the industry, and with a class project to do some investigative journalism I decided to tackle the urban legend of “Acid Park.” Growing up in a small backwoods town in North Carolina,… Continue reading A Year Without Whirligigs: Remembering Vollis Simpson.

Reality Bites: The Harsh Reality of Unemployment in a Post Graduate World

It’s May again, which means my newsfeed is full of nothing but hopeful graduates waiting for their moment in the sun. But for me, having been a year since I graduated and had nothing but dark days watching hope wither and die, I’m tracking their status updates waiting for the day they get a job… Continue reading Reality Bites: The Harsh Reality of Unemployment in a Post Graduate World
