Rebirth: The Successful Rebrand of Kia
Once upon a time, a Kia was a simple, family car; nothing extraordinary or covetable. The vehicles donned a simple logo; the word Kia written inside a wide circle. The most interesting about the logo was the missing horizontal line from the capital A.
Snap AI Posts a Video; The World Freaks Out
As I browsed through my chats on Snapchat, I noticed a peculiar thing: “My AI” (the AI-powered bot introduced by Snapchat to its users in February of 2023) had posted a story. Before opening the Snap, I thought it might be a new feature from Snapchat or a cheesy way to make the AI more personable to its users.
The Liminal Spaces of Our Favorite Childhood Cartoons
Have you ever looked at the television screen in awe; perplexed as to how a cartoon show is able to capture such a beautiful space? In just the width and height of a screen, the walls of the space seem to open up beyond infinity. The lines go on forever; running parallel to a point unseen.

I’ll never forget what my friend told me once I shared my struggles: “Have you received a diagnosis? Stop self-diagnosing yourself.” Much younger and naive, I told my friend that she was right. I had no right to claim that I had OCD until I had received a formal diagnosis, period.
Cleaning: My Dirty Secret
Who doesn’t love a stack of freshly laundered clothing or the delicate lines of a vacuum trail? Shiny surfaces germ-free environments and the lovely citrus scent of soaps and detergents; why don’t we clean more often? How could cleaning ever be a bad thing? How could it ever represent a problem or pose a threat to one’s well-being?

Saying Goodbye (For Now) To My Morbid Hobby Turned ObsessionTop Story - May 2022
In recent years, I’ve taken up a, more often than not, rather morbid hobby; one that millions of Americans indulge in every day. As a nation and as a global society, our obsession with this particular genre of information has inspired TV shows, movies, books, and entire societies/communities; both digital and not.
