The Power of Introversion

By Darby Fike

INFP. That is my 16Personalities’ type. It means I am loyal to my values, idealistic, adaptable and curious. But it also means I am an introvert, and someone reading this can probably relate to that.

What is it That You do?

By Darby Fike

“What do you do?” This is a question you’ll likely be asked when you meet someone new.   And this has been my response for the summer: “I’m a social media intern at a technology firm.” Without fail, “what is that?” is question that always follows. It’s a good question though. I’ve spent four years […] Read More...

Allow me to indulge you with a quote that I’ve always seemed to enjoy. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” This little piece is from Samuel Beckett’s Worstward Ho (1983) and seems to sum up most of life’s perpetual struggles.   I am no stranger to failure myself. I […] Read More...

Stories Here, Stories There

By Morgan Weiler

  Stories here, stories there, stories everywhere! But why… WHY are social media stories taking over the universe? (Okay, I’m being dramatic)           After my first 3 months as a Sundog intern, I was asked to present on a subject that was new, relevant, even innovative. In August of 2016, the […] Read More...

Vanity Metric: The Ruin of Humankind

By Morgan Weiler

Do you lie awake, haunted by the lack of likes your most recent morning coffee selfie garnered? Trust me, you’re not alone. The amount of likes (and lack of) are literally ruining humankind.

This app has turned into a worldwide phenomenon, with 16 percent of people saying they play 4+ hours a day. This is not the only mind-boggling stat.

Punctuation Faux Pas

By Morgan Weiler

The period is dead. Yes, you read that right. Although you see me using this pointed punctuation mark as you read my blog, I do not recommend its usage. You may think what I am saying is crazy (it is). You may say that the sad little dot is necessary (it is). Although just like […] Read More...
