Uncle Facebook

I managed to do something that’s unthinkable, and maybe nearly impossible, in this day in age: graduate college without a dime of student debt.

The 6 Documentaries I’m Going to Watch Next

the week ahead

The last documentary that I watched, in its entirety, is the latest PBS Frontline special about the first four years of the Obama administration.
