A gap year at home, where I actually did 'find myself'

I always knew it was writing I wanted to do. As a kid I always had my head in a book and I thought this is what I want to do; the idea that I could write whatever I want, any story that came to mind and I could actually be paid for it seemed too good to be true.

Her performance at the music festival was remarkable both in black history as she is reportedly the first black woman to headline Coachella since its inauguration in 1999; and in music as her performance was classified as the best performance ever held at Coachella in its 20 years, affirming her as the best entertainer alive. The impact that Beyoncé made was so great that the festival that year was named “Bey-chella” after her.

Wikipedia describes the game as a "social simulation", but that's incorrect: this masks its true identity as an accidental expose of the unintended consequences of neoliberal, late-stage capitalism allowed to run riot.
