I'll kiss you but I'll have to rip your throat out
I’ll kiss you but I’ll have to rip your throat out

For all you college students out there, it’s the middle of Winter Quarter. We just got over the holiday blues, but there is so much more things to deal with. You have to deal with the hardest part of your classes, meeting with professors (so that they can write you a great future recommendation, and worst of all: your group members. It’s bad enough that you had to make new friends with the person sitting next to you the first day (how else would you get notes when you are sick or slept in through 5 alarm clocks?)

How to Get Over the Post-Holiday Blues (College Edition)

For all you college students out there, this can be the worst time of the year.

Everyone is feeling blue after the holidays and New Year’s resolutions can feel so depressing.

"All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day"
“All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day”

Every New Year, I brainstorm resolutions in my head. “Oh I need to lose more 30 pounds this year. Oh I need to be nicer to my neighbors, coworkers, and friends.”

Nobody wants to obsess over these things ALL YEAR.

Even worse, if you live in the Pacific Northwest, you are deprived of sunshine and feel extra cranky ALL THE TIME.

Skeptical at first

Have you ever had that “Huh” moment? Not the one where you don’t understand something, but the one where you are contemplating if something is legit or completely looney toons. You squeeze your eyebrows together, squint your eyes a little, and perk your lips to one side. Try it, it really makes you look like a thinker.

What is ArcZap?

Arc, Arch, Zap

As we ready our technical preview alpha, it is appropriate to explain what ArcZap is all about.  One meaning of ‘arc’, when used as a noun,  means part of the circumference of a circle or curve.  Think of the St. Louis Arch.   Or the outer round rim of crust on a slice of pie. “Zap” can mean a sudden burst of electricity, energy, or sound.   ArcZap is a way to instantaneously communicate and interact with a specified set of friends.
