Baby, Now We Got Bad Blood

When I stumbled upon an ABC News podcast called “The Dropout,” I had no idea what I was in for. The podcast tells the story of Theranos, a Silicon Valley startup founded by Elizabeth Holmes. Holmes dropped out of Stanford at the age of 19 and founded the company with the mission of creating technology that could run hundreds of blood tests all from a single drop of blood on a handheld device (later named the Edison), thus eliminating the painful and often difficult process of collecting blood intravenously in multiple vials. Theranos was hyped as being revolutionary, something that would change the healthcare industry and something that would change the world.

Thank you 2018, but NEXT.

Hi everyone! It’s officially time to break up with 2018 — finally! This year has felt like an eternity (and not in a good way). For me, I have a feeling this break up is definitely not mutual and much more of an “it’s not you, it’s me” type of thing, but whatever it’s over. Thank you 2018, but next. You’re all probably going to hate me for saying this but I’m the type of person who actually is decently good at keeping up my new year’s resolutions! BUT — I have tricks to my trade, and I cannot wait to share them with you. My resolutions are probably pretty common because I am totally #basic (but I admit it, so it makes it okay) so I will share them with you and hopefully inspire you to make some of your own.
