Thinking About Writing

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

I don't remember when I decided I wanted to become a writer.

Why We Need To Stop Talking About Starbucks

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

If you read the title of this post, then right about now you're probably thinking, "Bri, aren't you just making yourself part of the problem by posting this?" The answer is yes, I am, but it's been almost a week since this whole debacle began, and it shows no signs of going away, so I felt the need to say something. For the benefit of those who have thus far been spared the outrageous kerfuffle that is the Starbucks Christmas...
