Unknown-1

The Pittsburgh rap/ hip hop station WAMO 100 has been playing promos for Martin Luther King Day saying “living the dream,” which made me think, are we? This is not an argument of whether we are or not and I’m aware that this is a…

Just Asking Questions

  We’re “wandering.” We have too many options and we have no options. We don’t want to settle for the boring jobs our parents have. We want to be entrepreneurs, bloggers and run PR companies. We want to see the world. We want to be happy.…
