I’m kind of always looking at my phone or on the computer. I don’t want to admit that it can be a bad habit. I’m a millennial kid! It’s 2014! I’m a Communication major! Media is my life! But sometimes it can be a little much. I’ve been meaning to write a post just on our phone obsessed culture actually.
For now, take a look at what I’ve been reading lately across the web.

Good to know
Sharing a room is hard. Making good use of any space can be tough! You feel me? Refinery29 has cool tips on how to make the most of a small space.
Buzzfeed quizzes are so on point. Find out what city you should actually live in and which New Girl character you are because I’m dying to know.
And hey, if you’re in LA…
See Ramiro Gomez Jr.’s Domestic Scenes exhibit at the Charlie James Gallery before Feb. 15, if you haven’t already.
Twenty museums will be offering free admission on Saturday, Jan. 25. Yay!
