Humans of the Dub: End of Year Traditions

Humans of the Dub: End of Year Traditions

January 6, 2021
What makes me happy now is making Christmas special for others. It’s not just about getting gifts but giving people things and seeing them react to that. I have a sister, I like to spoil her, and it’s a great time to give back to my parents. As kids we couldn’t give our parents things and now that I’m more mature and can afford things, I like to show my appreciation for them by making it a nice Christmas.

Humans of the Dub: Working towards an intentional year

Sunshine Angulo, Humans of the Dub - Head Editor December 30, 2020
“Oh man. I’ll be honest—I’m the worst gift-giver ever. I don’t give anyone’s gifts on time. They’re usually like a month or two after the occasion. So, what I’ve learned to do is to just CashApp my family and be like ‘Here’s some money.’"

Humans of the Dub: Christmas holiday cheer

Sunshine Angulo, Humans of the Dub - Head Editor December 5, 2020
"I think a lot of times around Christmas family members try and outdo one another with expensive gifts which is fine but for me ‘Christmas Joy’ is really the small, sentimental, things and there isn’t a certain price range it fits into."

"Whatever you don’t get done that day, you have time. It’s not the world is going to end if you miss an assignment. Take it little by little. Don’t look at the big picture.”

Humans of the Dub: What Thanksgiving means to me

Sunshine Angulo, Humans of the Dub - Head Editor November 18, 2020
"When I think of Thanksgiving, I don’t think of it as a holiday to celebrate the Americas being founded. I know that’s what they teach you in school, but to me when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of eating food and celebrating with my family. But I 100% agree that it should not be celebrated like how they teach you in school. I think the holiday is sugarcoated."

"There had been talk of people staying indoors or being scared to go out and vote. That’s not okay. That shouldn’t be happening in an election."

Where did you transfer from? Why did you transfer to UNCW?   I transferred because Wake Tech is a community college which only offers two year programs. I didn’t think two years of school would...

"In one of my classes today, we looked at job descriptions and salaries. My professor asked all of us, ‘What did you find?’ Everyone was silent. One girl broke the silence and replied, ‘That was kind of depressing.’ We all agreed with her.”

Humans of the Dub: Meet the Staff! Zachary Kilby, Sports Editor

Sunshine Angulo, Humans of the Dub - Head Editor August 31, 2020
“I’m still getting used to being the Sports editor position since I just took over. I probably wouldn’t be able to give you an in-depth response. During my first article I wrote as the new Sports editor, I really learned what it was like having to go through the motions of being the Sports editor. Usually, I’m just the one writing the articles, sending it to Noah [our previous Sports editor], and having him take care of it. I realized there is so much more work that goes into processing, editing, and posting an article. It was a lot and a big learning curve for me. I felt bad because I kept having to ask people how to do certain things. I’m gonna try my best to get used to it, so I can begin to do everything more confidently on my own.”
