Breaking Down Barriers: Notable Asian Womxn in Today's Music

As an Asian-American woman, I don’t know what’s worse: often feeling overlooked, or being stereotyped to be “shy” or “timid.” These inspiring Asian womxn in today’s music effectively defy these notions through demanding attention to their music, which is often raw, honest, and more often than not loud.

Why You Should be Thrifting in 2020

As fast fashion/cheap clothes take over the fashion world, thrift shop finds are a must to add to your closet to expand your style.

How to Pack Light for Study Abroad

I’ll be honest, I’m not the best when it comes to organization. Thankfully, my sister is, and she helped me with this process. Throwing all your belongings into a suitcase may sound like the easy way out, but if you don’t do it strategically, you could be wasting precious space. I invested in some classic vacuum bags and packing cubes to condense and separate my clothing. Each cube/bag was divided by clothing type, and they fit perfectly into my luggage. This really helped me get everything I wa

I Love a Doomed Romance Movie

My favorite and most memorable films always end up having a doomed romance. I realized this after finishing yet another melancholic romance movie that left me teary eyed and pondering over the ending.

Maybe it’s the way some films explore the reality of most relationships by take the non-traditional route of not having the couple end up together. Or maybe it’s t

Here’s How to Call in Sick & Not Feel Bad About It

I spent years working in the food service industry, and getting sick time was pretty much equivalent to climbing Mount Everest. So when I landed my first professional job with an unlimited sick and vacation time policy, I was stoked I wouldn’t have to stress about being sick anymore. Much to my dismay, after a few months on the job, I realized my manager pressured everyone to work while sick, even with the “unlimited” policy. Whenever I called in, they would pry about the details of my illness a

I’m Still Mad That ‘Us’ Never Got an Oscar Nomination

It's no surprise that the Academy has yet again failed to recognize the many masterpieces that people of color have created, as seen in the white-Hollywood-dominated choices of nominations for the 2020 awards (shoutout to Parasite, though). However, the biggest disappointment is the fact that Jordan Peele's Us wasn't nominated for a single Oscar, despite it being one of the most intellectually and emotionally stirring films released in 2019.
