Auld Lang Syne

It’s almost New Year’s Eve- we’re all gonna sing it- but what does it mean?!  Auld Lang Syne roughly translates to “times long past.”  The words, “Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?” is really a rhetorical question.  Like,...

Listicle of listicles

Since this will be my last regular blog post for now (I’ll be guest blogging on a less regular schedule going forward), I’m revisiting—and slightly revising—my very first post on The Daily Feels from January 2019 (holy shit—one month shy of three years ago!). It’s the...

A Bittersweet Farewell

Endings are sad. It doesn’t really matter how ecstatic I am to move on to another job, or city, or school. There’s always something remarkably sad about moving on. Growing up. Expanding out. One of the topics I have covered extensively throughout my year and a half of...

An Ode To Our Fearless Leader
