On Thrifting

One of the most surprising things I encountered, upon moving to the United States, was the popularization of thrifting. Like anyone who listened to the music of 2013, I heard Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop,” but did not realize just how mainstream thrifting had become. My first real encounter with thrift shopping was the day of Southern Supper my freshman year. (That ... Read More »

What I Learned From The ECHO

I started out this year believing I would be much more involved on campus and turning in my assignments days before they were due.
