What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

My coverage on viral culture has launched careers. I profiled Ben Lashes, which gave him a huge boost in recognition and business.

Conan tells viewers to stop watching his show and 'turn to Dave' — Conan O' Brien already gave David Letterman a heartfelt goodbye, but he continued to show his appreciation with a small, thoughtful gesture. During Wednesday's show, Conan was mid-interview with comedian Patton Oswalt, when he urged TBS viewers to change the channel to CBS for Letterman's final Late Show.

10 life lessons David Letterman is leaving us with — In his early Late Show days, David Letterman took inspiration from former iconic comedians like Johnny Carson and Steve Allen. His career inevitably paved the way for future comics to succeed. But between Top Ten lists and stupid human tricks, the late-night host provided more than just laughs and comedy stars.

50 graduation caps that made honors in creativity — Another graduating class, another round of Disney quotes on their mortar boards. From the moment you put on that robe, it's hard to stand out among a sea of bright-eyed graduates. Students make their mark with a little bedazzling, construction paper and paint on the graduation caps.

13 nail hacks for the perfect DIY manicure — It's amazing what a fresh manicure can do to your state of mind. Combine that feeling with the boost of confidence you get from making something all by yourself and you're practically unstoppable. Painting your own nails is no easy task.

I tried to get Kylie Jenner lips and all I got was this mouth hickey — Of all the reasons to work from home, I never expected "I don't want to explain this bruise on my upper lip" to be one of them. Around the time news broke that Kylie Jenner, 17, enhances her lips with a doctor's help, I was volunteering to get my lips vacuumed.

10 'Twin Peaks' facts that are crazier than the Log Lady — RICHMOND, Virginia - There are many unsolved mysteries from Twin Peaks that, for 25 years, have left fans desperate for more, or at least an explanation. Did Shelly say yes? Did Lucy have a boy or girl? What the hell happened to the log lady? All of these things we still don't have answers to.

Which type of weed is right for you? — Marijuana has grown a reputable name for itself in the past few years. Gone are the days when the leafy plant signified stoner-status. Weed is a booming industry that's toking up millions in tax revenue. As more opportunities arise for legal experimentation with the popular drug, so do various types of marijuana.

Creative 'Twin Peaks' fans make a damn fine art show — RICHMOND, Virginia - is a bizarre piece of cult-cherished art that's inspired many artists to express their inner David Lynch. At a local bookstore in Richmond, Virginia, the Twin Peaks art show highlights the work of creative fans this weekend.

10 more clever 404 error pages for Hillary Clinton — Hillary Clinton wants everyday Americans to know she's one of them, and so far, she's doing a good job showing it. Like other Americans, she eats Chipotle in secret, likes Saturday morning cartoons and loves a good #TBT.

'Game of Thrones' assembles as the Avengers — Winter may be coming, but the future is pretty bright for nerds these days. The hype is bursting at Hulk's purple pants seams as Marvel and Game of Thrones fans wait for the return of their beloved vices. Dark nights are undoubtedly coming to Westeros this season, so the houses could take a tip from the Avengers on fighting for survival.
