On a Serious Note

My dear reader — I address you as dear because that’s what you are to me. You take the time out of your day to read this and some of you even come back for more.

There’s a Zombie in my Living Room

It’s official, the dead are bigger then the living.

"The Walking Dead" has taken over Facebook, Twitter and BuzzFeed. Brad...

Megan Irving’s Successful Steps to an All-Nighter

How are you today, reader? Good, I hope. How am I? Well, I’m touched you asked because I am exhausted. I assume you know what an all-nighter is.

Volunteering in the City

Something I pride myself on is following the news. This may sound a bit silly; I don’t produce the news or create it. I simply follow it. I pride myself on the fact that I know what’s going on in the world. I’d recommend it to everyone and anyone. Okay dear reader, I’ll get off my high horse and get to the story.
