I miss Albuquerque. A few weeks ago, I left the desert to finish up graduate school in the rainy town of Eugene, Oregon. I love it here. I grew up watching the Twilight films, so it’s always been my dream to live in the Pacific Northwest. But.
There’s a part of me that craves Albuquerque. My current state of homesickness might be because the day I’m writing this is the 15th anniversary of “High School Musical,” a film based in Albuquerque that shaped who I am as a person. It was actually filmed in Utah, but I, like many New…
The last locally-owned drugstore in Eugene, Oregon, is working hard to survive COVID-19, and to provide an escape for its customers and employees.

Writing for the ear is far different than writing for the eye. Here’s how to build stories that sound natural.
One positive aspect of 2020 is that it’s given people time to pick up new hobbies. For me, there’s been a surprising amount of fun had while baking banana bread. I’ve also acquired an unexpected love of K-pop music (I don’t remember who I was before BTS). Most importantly, I’ve gained a newfound knowledge of the podcasting world.
