When I hop into a taxicab, usually the last thing on my mind is the personal history of the driver behind that taxi’s wheel. I am often caught up in thinking about where I am or where I need to go, tapping away at my iPhone screen and trying to calculate the exact travel time…

Once midterm season rises and rears its ugly head, it is necessary to remind yourself that there is a world outside of Economics tests and Philosophy papers.
