But it puts you in a special minority to know much at all of the Rwandan genocide, the killing that erupted between the majority Hutu and minority Tutsi peoples in 1994. There,...

    2014 was when I began the Holy Hitchhike, a modestly obnoxious column on my varying opinion. It all began with a study on the red-haired boom in teen fiction. And here, a whole year later, why your latest literary masterpiece might not be completely yours… For a writer, the whole existential c...

    This kid eats anything. And everything. There’s a few reasons why. There is no way you can make me skip breakfast: it’s either bus with breakfast or no bus at all. My skinny girl crisis was resolved in prehistoric times; the few times I’ve missed meals were purely unintentional and thusly ...

    David, a little shepherd boy, was not meant to destroy the monstrous Goliath.

    What happens in the two seconds you meet someone for the first time? Are you picking up on more than their hair, expression, or clothes?

    Unfortunately, I present a case for the little Asian girl stereotype. I exceed all standards; I perfectly assume the guise of a quiet, smart, musical genius imported straight from Beijing. And I know it. Well, why? I could write a whole other Holy Hitchhike on what makes this kid so dang quiet, ...

    Pharaohphobia. The God-given phobia of mummies. I had my sister search it up while I rocked myself back and forth on my knees and moaned. Well, now I have it. I at least have the name. The question must be eating you up: the Holy Hitchhiker? A scaredy cat? Madame Ala Nova, horrified by some ...

    Taylor Swift’s love life is none of your business. It’s doesn’t matter if “Blank Space” or “Style” (or both) was dedicated to her affair with Harry Styles, either. If anything, that’s their business—emphasis on the two-person possessive adjective. We don’t need to dig up pict...
