Navigating Tinder: Can It Really Lead to Something Real?

Originally published on the Society 19 Emerson College blog in July 2018. First Impressions I never thought there was really a reason to have a Tinder.

Everyone’s Got Something To Say

Before this summer, I had never heard Haim. Not the word, not the name, and nothing about their art and their sound.
