And how it’s improved the way I see myself

As a recent college graduate, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some incredible people who became lifelong friends. Over the past four years, I have also watched many of these friends get married and start a new chapter in life.

Looking back, it seems that college students are placed into two categories regarding romantic relationships: (1) destined to find their partner in school or (2) graduate single.

I fell under the latter and walked across the stage with a diploma in hand, but no ring on my finger.

And that’s alright. Everyone’s romantic path is different and may take unpredictable…

In 38 days, I gained over 100,000 followers. I still can’t believe it.

During the premature weeks of the pandemic, everyone around the world scrambled to change and adjust plans for the rest of the year. Whether it meant canceling trips or finishing the semester online, people were not prepared for what 2020 had in store.

Nintendo, on the other hand, had an ace up their sleeve that would change millions of mundane routines into hanging with virtual animals and island decorating. That’s how many would describe Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but the game had an impact on my life that still leaves me speechless 10 months later.

If you haven’t taken advantage of the student debt freeze, now’s the time to do so.

Once COVID-19 reached the U.S., students across the country wondered what would happen in regards to their debt. Former President Donald Trump ordered the Department of Education to pause payments on federal loans until August of last year. Then, it was extended to December. And finally, the end of January, leaving President Biden to make the next move. What is the current status?

On his first day in office, Biden took immediate action to extend the pause on payments and interest increase to the end of September. …

These are What’s Poppin’s picks for the first month of 2021

Welcome to Music of the Month, where we highlight some of the best releases from artists across the globe. Whether they found a place on the charts or need more streams (sleeper hits), these songs should be added to everyone’s playlists. This month, it looks like a few singers have stirred up drama (or so it seems). Check out these great releases below:

1. driver’s license - Olivia Rodrigo

Emerging fresh from Disney, everyone was anticipating a release from this budding star. Olivia Rodrigo teased the single “driver’s license” at the beginning of the month, and released the music video on Jan. 8. …

Travis Scott may have his own Fortnite virtual merchandise and a McDonald’s meal, but a classic love triangle might be a better marketing tactic

As one of the largest corporations in the world, Disney functions in several different ways. From world resorts to streaming services, some aspects of our lives probably involve the company.

One of the most talked-about subjects with Disney is their self-produced TV shows, more specifically the stars emerging from them. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake are notable figures from the 90s show, Mickey Mouse Club.

Others like Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez all starred in their own shows on the Disney Channel and built their careers from it. Although they made music during their time with the company…

Where am I supposed to share my piece on why Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” should have reached number one on Billboard’s Hot 100?

I live and breathe pop music. Each year, my Spotify Wrapped showcases my love for the genre. Pop, Indie Pop, Dance Pop, and Pop Rock cement their place in my most listened to genres time after time. (The fifth spot is always up for grabs)

Not only do I love listening to pop music, but I also enjoy having discussions about the subject. Why wasn’t this album nominated for a Grammy? Why did so-and-so artist release…
