Ok, so you're probably thinking, “What in the world is Destination Addiction?” “Is it airborne?” “Another disease?!” “Have I already contracted it without knowing it?” Before you ask yourself a million more questions, let me explain what Destination Addiction is. As stated...

April 22, 2016

Around this time next year, I will be graduating from college. I honestly can’t believe how quickly the four years have gone by. I’m excited to see what my future holds but I’m nervous! Often, I think about how I will translate my four years of studying, writing papers, and taking exams into...

They’re Not All Evil

They're Not All Evil

April 15, 2016

Once upon a time, I hated cats. I don't know where my strong dislike towards the four legged animal came from. Maybe it was their long whiskers or beady eyes. If I saw a cat while walking down the street, I would walk on the edge of the sidewalk. Once I saw a group of cats huddled together and...

Seven Day Challenge

April 7, 2016

Besides a great outfit, clear, healthy looking skin makes me feel confident. Over the years, I’ve tried different cleansers to get rid of my acne marks. While some of them have helped, none of them gave me that “just born” skin I wanted to get back. It’s been disappointing and frustrating to...

For three days out of the week, I commute to the Dobbs Ferry campus for classes. Although I’ve traveled between campuses (Manhattan and Dobbs Ferry) for three years, only now has all the commuting taken a toll on me.

The O.J. Simpson murder trial is revived in the new TV series, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and I’m hooked. Every Tuesday at 10p.m., I’m curled up on my bed (eating my chips), waiting to see what’s in store. It’s been 21 years since former football player, O.J. Simpson ...

It’s not her birthday. It’s not Mother’s Day. I’m not trying to get back in her good graces after messing up. This is simply an appreciation post to the greatest of all time, my mom Bernadette. My mom has always been my rock. She’s been the only parent that I could depend on for...

When Water Goes Wrong

When Water Goes Wrong

Shantal Marshall, Associate Managing Editor

January 31, 2016

Over the winter break, I spent most nights watching YouTube videos until four in the morning. The suggested videos section is all to blame. I started out by watching one five minute hair tutorial on “How to Get the Perfect Curls” and before I knew it, one video became two, two became three, and three...

NYC Weather Is Out Of Control

NYC Weather Is Out Of Control

Shantal Marshall, Staff Writer

December 24, 2015

New York City weather has been so unpredictable lately. So much so, I never know what to wear anymore. One day, it’s winter and the next day it’s spring. Despite the mild temperatures, I still packed on the layers because that’s just what I do in the fall/winter. Silly me because I’ve been literally...
