My Raw Thoughts on College and A Career

“Raw” as in, “I wrote this in twenty minutes”. No edits. Nothing. This brings up a topic I briefly touched on in one of my other articles, A Growing Standard: Student Apathy, in which I introduced the “exhausted professional”, someone that works solely for the tokens that come with it. I once had this view, and…

[A Repost] On Nagging | A Video

Usually, when we want to change someone else and have been met with a brick wall or an otherwise unsympathetic ear, we resort to nagging which not only turns off the other person more but also gives them a sense that they are being falsely accused or wrongly punished. This video helps explain the results…

[A Repost] Why Music is Getting Worse and How it Reflects on Us

I know I haven't been the only one to notice that music and especially lyrics have grown worse over the years. Well, I found an article with concrete evidence! It is true! And guess what? It's also a little controversial which is what Outlet does: tackle things that some people don't want to hear. I found…

Politics, Entitlement and Narcissism: I Want This and I Don’t Want Them to Have It

What I feel like is understated in the political environment today is the fact that the people advocating for legislation that is harmful to the planet and to the common people can't be swayed by logic or any measure of compassion. This sort of unsympathetic, elitist attitude shown by those in power right now can…

If by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you     Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,     But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,     Or being lied about, don’t deal in…

Shoutout to Flash365: The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Ever Seen

Check out Flash365's blog if you like what you see! I remember the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t remember when. I don’t remember why. I do remember where; Minneapolis, Minnesota. There was a girl. We met in Maine. We met again two years later in Massachusetts. She moved to Minnesota in that…

Art Piece: A Spider’s Thread

  The Spider's Thread in this piece has a double meaning. It could symbolise the fragility of good or... it could be something else. If you want to know the story behind the spider's thread, click here. As always, leave a comment below and perhaps some suggestions as to new concepts y'all would like me to explore.…

The Sad Case of the Nerds, Geeks and Bookworms

As an APUSH student, this is a trend that I've seen repeating itself every single time America makes an effort to modernise itself. It is not only the people's resistance to change but also the people's resistance to new information. The American people throughout their history has always preferred easy information and take pride in…

Alone in a Dark Room With Your Thoughts

Hello guys! It's time for another art piece. As you can tell from the date in the lower right corner, this drawing is from quite a while ago. This was the summer after I started drawing for the first time. You can see my technique is still relatively simple but I've definitely done much better…

    Well, there's a reason you clicked on this article; you either want to write a blog or want someone else to write a blog to help you. Either way, you're interested in blogs. So there, I just drew up a simple equation: you plus a blog on one side and your potential audience…

Silent Judges

This the first of my neo-surrealistic style works. I only draw in graphite and so far, I've found it good enough for what I'm drawing. This was back when I first began drawing so you can see quite clearly that the concept wasn't very well executed. In any case, you see the barrel of a…

Feb 2017 Quote of the Month

  "The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."…
