On passion and practicality

Words and art by yours truly [Disclaimer: I don’t think that this one makes sense (or that the title is misleading), I feel like I’m just rambling but whatever, this is just me being frustrated HAHA.] We’ve been told to pick a more practical path for the future. “Arts are just for hobbies,” that line…

Spreading the love that saves

Spreading the love that saves A reflection on Camp CALYE 2018: Elements Love, is often taken for granted. We throw ‘I love you’s even when we do not mean it.
