When I woke up on Wednesday morning last week, I wasn’t surprised to see that Donald Trump is now our president-elect. Then again, I had stayed up until I was sure who would win. When I realized that Hillary Clinton only had the opportunity to tie when the status of five or so swing states were...

Dear David Hancock, Do you ever feel like you have absolutely nothing in your head but the same stuff that’s frantically replaying in your head over and over? Oh yes, of course you do, you’re me. And I am you. Weird. Anyways, why do you do that? Why do you focus so much on things...
