I love clothes.

Yeah, I know that is a generic way of starting but I can honestly say a good article of clothing warms my heart. Although I am not a ~fashionista~ or anything of the sort, I know a good piece of clothing when I see it and I get so so excited whenever a celebrity releases their own range of clothing whether it be all types of clothes or just one form – it is all exciting to me.

Adventures in Creating New & Differentiated Identities

We all know that every company in existence has a certain brand – a look, a message, a name, a logo which are components of the brand’s identity. However, brands can go even further than companies: almost every music artist has created their own specific brand identity that coincides with their musical identity.

Life After Vine

By now, you’ve probably heard the news. On October 27, Vine announced that they would soon be discontinuing their mobile app. Twitter, Vine’s current owner, has evidently decided that the app is no longer economically viable. For the social-media-savvy, this announcement was shocking. Though most people were not as active on Vine as they may have been on sites like Instagram or Facebook, Vine has remained a staple in the online world for years. Since 2013, users have been using the Vine application to make and share content. Many videos posted on Vine have later become viral, leading to them being shared across multiple platforms. How many “memes” can you recall that trace their origins to a Vine?

How to Mourn the Death of a Major Fictional Character

A few weeks ago, I sat in a dorm common room with a few of my friends. Together, we were a bundle of nerves, as we were waiting patiently for the newest episode of The Walking Dead to start. At 9PM, the season 7 premiere would be on, and AMC had promised the premiere would be bloody. At least one main cast member was going to get the ax (or rather, the bat) by the end of the episode. And, as a longtime fan, I was beyond nervous to watch that happen.

Yes, it has reached that time in the semester where we all have to attend academic advising or department advising meetings, figure out our pin numbers (for those of us who have them anyways), and to wake up bright and early at 7AM on our designated day!
