27. She\Her. Taking down the patriarchy, white supremacy and other tired BS, one weird metaphor at a time.
Don't let the hate percolate
January is never an easy month. In fact, we often - as a collective - judge the rest of the year based on what terrible events take place in January. This year I want to challenge you to look at the first month of the year from a different perspective. Instead of looking at January as an excuse to doom the rest of the year, look at it as a reference of what not to do for the 11 remaining months.

HELLO VOCAAAAAL!! *echo* It’s finally Spooky Season and we are not holding back in 2021. If you’re a Vocal editor, you better blast this playlist out loud in the office. You guys deserve a lil dance break. If you’re a reader, clear the room, move your furniture aside and start stretching. And if you’re a writer, well… you should probably get back to writing, I know you’re procrastinating! Okay fine, you can read this first...

Happiness. That sweet emotion can sometimes be tied to physical things, but more often than not, that type of happiness doesn’t have a lasting effect. Over the past year, I have discovered that happiness is not really something I had to struggle for, it kind of just came organically when I allowed it to.
//TW: eating disorders and drug use// BEEP. BEEP. BEEP. Clara was startled awake by her alarm. She’d fallen into another late night binge after getting triggered by Instagram. It sent her spiralling into feelings of inadequacy and self-loathing. She ate everything in her path, an out-of-body experience. And the moment it was over, shame drowned her.
An Ode to Rihanna
I still remember the first time I ever heard ‘Pon De Replay’. My older sister and I had downloaded it on LimeWire (Pre-Spotify days). It took ages to download on our gigantic, virus-riddled desktop computer. But once the download was complete, we couldn’t stop playing it. I’m pretty sure we choreographed a disastrously cringey dance to it too. What can I say, Rihanna’s unique vocals and dancehall beats completely transported me to a nightclub in the Caribbean… at 12 years old. Her music made me feel way cooler than I was.
