According to a study done in January of this year, millennials spend 10 hours a week on dating apps. Out of 5,000 people between the ages of 18-30, men were likely to spend about 85 minutes a day on apps, women with 79 minutes. This isn’t a surprising statistic to those of us (including myself) who have taken our turns on dating apps – young people are utilizing technology and social media more than anyone else.

Lollapalooza 2019 Predictions & Rumors


Surprise! It’s never too early to start throwing out predictions for Lollapalooza. Last year I started my list in November – this year I’m coming in hot even earlier.

As usual, these predictions are based off of my own research and buzz on the Lollapalooza Reddit thread. I don’t and will never take all credit for these predictions on my own. I read a lot and form predictions based on who I listen to on my own.

I’ll let readers know every time this post is updated, but it has officially started on October 2, 2018.

I’ve been writing these New Music Sunday posts for almost a year now and it’s wild how fast time flies by. This post series has become so much more than I ever thought it could be – so thanks so much for reading!

I have a weird relationship with the “DIY” music scene and it’s because of my experiences with the sorts of people this phenomenon attracts. Lots of kids in my college classes were the essence of DIY music – walking around campus in Doc Martens (I can’t be that harsh because I own a pair) and fjallraven backpacks, always staring pensively the rest of us as they smoked cigarettes on the steps of the DePaul SAC building (if you know, you know).
