Amanda Laskey’s Best of 2013

January 7th, 2014 · 2 Comments · By

I don’t want to make this post about me, but some of you may know that I’m moving away from Charlottesville soon, and I’m going to have to get all sappy for a second. Working on this post about the new Sharkopath video has made me realize that there are two major things I’m going […]

Today is the first day of August, also known as the first day of the last month of summer. We’ve all had our fun living in a shitty sublet with no windows, looking up graduate programs and crying, and preparing to move back into our parents’ house. But now it’s time to really enjoy these […]
