Ever since I was in fourth grade, I’ve gotten a strange satisfaction from correcting people’s writing. Now, this isn’t to say I don’t make my own mistakes, but there’s just something about writing and editing that gives me an odd sense of joy. Grammar and spelling errors stand out to me,...

Something I love about this time of year is the constant feeling of anticipation. You’re preparing for something, but not everybody really knows what. You can anticipate going home and sitting down at a perfectly decorated table with a cornucopia of seasonal food. Inevitably, it is decided that...
