Three months of hard work, strict hours, even down to the routine shuttle schedules—I’ve got each second of every day to the “T”! But now it’s lost.

You imagine always going out to parties, being with friends, meeting attractive people and from time […]

If you ever wanted to tune out a particularly boring conversation, you could simply pop in the pods; discrete and effective! It was a source of comfort and protection from dreaded social interaction.

Mastering the Art of the “Hot Girl Walk”

By Hannah Walls  Web Content Assistant I used to be a runner. I hated it. I’m not just talking about my brief stint as a 100-meter hurdles competitor in middle school; that lasted about one semester before I realized I and my tendency to trip over my own feet constantly were better off in the band hall than on the track. I’m talking about forcing myself out of the house […]
