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.

16 invaluable life lessons from father figures — A little advice goes a long way. While some of us groaned at our dad's attempt to coach us through critical years of development, others didn't have that luxury. Sure, an online tutorial can teach you how to shave or tie a tie.

'Sonic the Hedgehog' in real life is better than virtual reality — Hedgehogs aren't too keen on gaming, but like humans, no one can resist those addicting gold coins. The San Diego Zoo introduced Mashable to some animals, including Elvis the hedgehog. We wanted to see if all hedgehogs were as speedy as Sonic so we created an extremely high-budget replica of the classic SEGA game.

Zoo animals review the Apple Watch — When a new gadget hits the market, the tech world is comparable to a zoo. Reviewers all but foam at the mouth over small features, throw devices at the wall just to see what happens and would sacrifice their first born to be first in line and rule the natural hierarchy.

The 3-eyed raven decided who deserves the Iron Throne — Let's hope the raven knows something. Everyone's favorite three-eyed-bird-who-is-really-a-mysterious-cave-sorcerer is on hiatus from Game of Thrones this season alongside Bran and Hodor, but that doesn't mean he isn't putting that extra peeper to good use. As the fight to the throne continues, we looked to the intuitive creature for insight on who will come out on top and rule Westeros.

Bath & Body Works reissues iconic scents so you can relive middle school — Hang on to your body glitter, because the '90s are alive and well. (In your shower, anyway.) Remember the good old days, when everyone passed notes on looseleaf paper spritzed with Cucumber Melon-scented spray for a personal touch? Thanks to Bath and Body Works (and sensory memory), you can soon relive some of your youth.

25 cool accessories every dream backyard should have — This summer is going to kick grass. The backyard is a sacred space. If you're lucky enough to own a private patch of outdoors, there are a few items that can transform your yard into a dreamy oasis. All it takes is proper mood lighting, extra comfortable seating and a lot of bug spray.

29 inflatable accessories to ensure your summer doesn't blow — It's not really summer without hot air, and we're not just talking about the weather. One of the unofficial signs of the season involves blowing up an inflatable pool raft until you're light-headed and red in the face. Fortunately, that pastime has slowly faded out with the improvements of portable inflation techniques.

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.
