Gaming, a new evolution of sports

For a very long time sports have been seen as something that involved a lot of physical movement and coordination: basketball, football, baseball, etc. But recently humanity has been redefining what it considers to be a sport. Video games have become such a big part of people’s lives and almost everyone has played or seen one, they have become such a big deal that people have started creating jobs around just simply playing them. An example is the YouTuber PewDiePie, he has made a living just simply playing video games with commentary of himself laid over the top. Since the creation of his YouTube channel he has been seen by billions of people every year and makes around 4 million dollars every year. I don’t know about you but I think that is crazy. But he isn’t the only one. YouTube has become a way for hundreds of thousands of people to post videos about gaming as well as other things and a lot of them make money doing so. It has gotten big enough that companies will sponsor the YouTubers and pay them money or give them free products. Continue reading “Gaming, a new evolution of sports”

The specifics on becoming a doctor and an interview with a real live pediatrician

Interested in going into the medical field? I did some research into it and interviewed a pediatrician from Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Becoming a doctor takes 11-15 years depending on whether you decide to specialize or not. First you have to get your undergraduate degree, which takes four years. Typically this degree will have a strong focus on the basic sciences (biology, physics, chemistry). After obtaining your bachelors you have to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) which tests you on your knowledge of biology, social understanding, and critical thinking skills. You then attend medical school for four years. Continue reading “The specifics on becoming a doctor and an interview with a real live pediatrician”

Nicole Macri is the Best

Guess who’s back! Tragically, I can only publish during the school year, but I hear the Stranger is year-round, so if you missed me and have connections there, you know where to find me. So this is my first article of the school year, and instead of starting with the stuff that’s angering me, like the bunker, that bullshit Stranger article, and homeless sweeps, I’m gonna write a happy and excited article to celebrate being back at work. Don’t worry, angry Galaxy will be back soon. I’ve got a lot of teenage angst and rage ready to be funneled into politics. But here, to brighten the mood of this shithole election, is a lil bit of happiness.

I spent an embarrassing amount of time looking for pictures of excited dogs.

More than just a trip: Rustic Pathways

I was very blessed to able to spend 3 weeks in the beautiful Udon Thani, Thailand, this summer through a program called Rustic Pathways. I discovered this program through someone on instagram that I knew. She made a few posts talking very highly of it. At this point in my life I was looking for an adventure and something that was going to change my life for the better; plus I needed community service hours. Now that I am back from my trip and have shared on social media how amazing of an experience it was for me, I’ve been flooded with questions on my trip and the program. So this will hopefully answer some of those frequently asked questions on rustic pathways for people who may be interested in a similar journey as me.
