People often complain that social media is a fabricated world, a place where filters over-glamorize life.

Two weeks ago, I listened to only Disney music for seven straight days to see how it affected my mood. This led to me trying to convince the DJs at each Halloween party I attended to play a few Disney songs. This didn’t go over very well with the crowd or the DJ. In fact, I only achieved success...

Students often joke about various ways to pay for college, such as getting run over by a city bus, selling drugs, finding a sugar daddy or stripping.
