When I think about it too much, I wonder why I even go into all the effort of zapping water with waves of energy just to soak some leaves in it so it turns a slight shade that water is not supposed to be, for me to then sweeten it with copious amounts of honey that will only make my sedentary body softer.

I started drinking tea in high school. I’m not really sure why. Probably because tea is easier to make than coffee. Operating a coffee maker required a level of commitment I was not ready for. Microwaves are easy.

The other night, I took myself out to see “La La Land” at the Michigan Theater. After countless recommendations from friends, I knew I had to go. The only showing I could fit in my day was at 9:45 p.m. on a Monday night, so naturally it was hard to find a friend willing to tag alone. I didn't think twice because, frankly, I just really wanted to see it.

This year was the 40th anniversary of the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, a two night series that brings in performers from all over the country. Hill Auditorium was nearly full for the first night on Friday. Six musical acts played over the course of four hours, and Susan Werner was the MC singing a mix of humorous and beautiful songs between sets.

Covering the Presidential election is a whirlwind of security, press passes and speeches. The focus is on the politician speaking; flashy signs in the background, and an enthusiastic audience in the foreground. Tables full of reporters and laptops are crammed in the back of the room, and platforms for cameras and news stations are set up. Between the front of the audience and the stage is the “buffer zone,” an area where photographers get a precious few minutes to crouch and take close-ups of the speaker.
