{I CELLute You} Doom, gloom, & somewhat dark looking Pancho with my new iPhone 6. This is my last photo with my #SamsungGalaxy and I’m kind of somber about it. Thank you to my first smart phone for helping me navigate #DC when I first moved here 2 years ago and for capturing moments in which I experienced a new joy or witnessed a mark from God. I have 1000s of photos on this phone, many in which I may or may never archive properly, but I am definitely feeling the profound impact #PersonalTechnology can have. It is time now for more creative self-expressions & greater digital explorations. I promise to #recycle all of you properly!! 🌍 Here we go. #ByeSamsungGalaxy✌ #HelloiPhone6!! 👋

Hanging out with me means finding the best lighting for picture opps! But this didn’t work out in front of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor with the sun setting and just our phones as cameras. In LIGHT of that, here is my good friend #ZaraBlouse and some go-to black tights on a sidewalk next to a picturesque scene of sailboats amidst a sunset. #InnerHarbor #BaltimoreInnerHarbor #CharmCity #OpaqueTights #BlackBoots #Fall2014 #Instagram

Watch Emma Watson give the U.N. a spot-on speech about feminism

Emma Watson turns feminism into a fancy word and I couldn’t be more proud. Men, you’re invited into this conversation too. And hey, look who’s extending the invitation! Someone pretty cool.

{Charmed by a city} Day trip to #Baltimore. The city is quaint, mundane at times, but does have its charming moments. Capturing the day with #Kpop since these guys are huge fans. 9 hours of hanging out and 9 hours of listening to guys talk about their dating woes with women. #SoInterestingThenNot #CharmCity #DCTransplants #Yuppies #DCLiving #Flipagram @flipagram ♫ #GirlsGeneration - Run Devil Run

Night runs mean the ability to run to Zara before it closes! This is what happens when you live in a small city. I love shopping here and if I had the means, I would walk away with more. Not that I aim for superficialty, but I really do appreciate the feminity, the lines, the design choices, the timely beauty of each of their pieces. A basic tee and blouse of theirs now lives in my closet. This is to document the thanksgiving I feel each time I purchase something new. This is also to document the last days of my Samsung Galaxy. iPhone 6 is almost near! #TYJ!! #Zara #Shopping #Fashion #Color #ColorCollective #NightRuns #DC #RememberThisMoment #iPhone6IsOnItsWay! #Instagram

salon:

These rankings exhibit a callous disregard for college affordability, prioritizing schools that spend more money on flashy amenities rather than scholarships and grants. U.S. News and World Report glamorizes selectivity, which creates a culture of exclusion that shuns low-income students the hardest.

College rankings are a farce.

[t]he magazine glamorizes selectivity, which creates a culture of exclusion that shuns low-income students the hardest.
