Dear political people, I was walking to my car when I noticed my boi Khaled waiting by the parking lot, so I offered him a ride home. So I drove him to get Wendy’s (on the condition that he bought me a drink) and then to his house, all the while discussing politics. It was weird because Khaled...

Dear concerned people, I’m fine. Really, I am. Thanks for asking, but it’s ok, I’m fine. I realize that I’m not acting like I’m fine. It’s easier to see when I’m having an off day because I’m usually really loud and smiling all the time, so when I calm down and act like an average...

February 13, 2017

Dear mortals, To blog, or not to blog. That is the questions. Whether ‘tis nobler to blog something meaningful and relevant or to suffer the slings and arrows of unfinished thought. To die, to sleep. Thus is my Shakespearian rant. To rant, perchance, to dream. Aye, therin lies the rub....

Sandra Sunio, Staff Writer

February 9, 2017

It was nearing the end of the summer of 2013. My family and I all had dinner at Boiling Crab for my aunt’s 60th birthday.
