This year has not been an easy one. Or the year before that, or the year before that one.
What can I do? The question I keep asking myself, as an American, in this political climate of Trump vs. The World.
Ah, February. The smell of chocolate (and bitterness) is in the air as millions prepare for the most romantic day of the year.
The first singer I’ve ever idolized deeply was FKA Twigs. It was in my senior year of high school when I first heard one of her singles, “Two Weeks.” I then proceeded to obsess over her music and life for a year.
An idea that I’ve had to grapple with was the saying that “family is forever.” I’ve made many friends over the years, and many of them have faded from my life. I’ve learned that although I considered close friends to be my family, it’s always possible that those friendships can end.

Trigger Warning: This letter includes mentions of suicide, depression, and hospitalization. Recently I got into a dispute with someone over how much I talk about my mental health on social media. I felt instantly furious and insecure, and shot insults. Later, we apologized to each other. But it’s been more than a month now and...
Happy New Years! This month’s theme on Margins is “Amazing Firsts”, and I would like to take a moment to reflect on how the past four months have been with the new existence of Margins.
