Forming An Opinion 101

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

A problem I run into all the time, especially in the last five years or so, is the curious case of people forming opinions about things they have no experience with. The fact that people have opinions at all isn't just good, it's great! Thinking critically about things we come into contact with so we can conclude our own thoughts and discuss with others is incredibly valuable to society. However, what is not helpful to society is when people form...

I'm Not Really a Fan of the Interstate

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

As a result, bizarre plots and self destructing characters make their way on screen, and the...
