On Friday April 29, tickets went on sale for Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour, and I was determined to get them. Drake is my favorite artist of all time and I’ve been dying to see him in concert for years now, but I’ve never been able to snag tickets. But this time, I wasn’t letting them slip...

I have a problem. A procrastination problem. Almost every project or assignment I have, I leave until the very last minute. I don’t know why I’m like this. I’ve tried numerous times in the past to change my ways but nothing seems to work. It’s like I physically can’t start an assignment...

For the past few years now Game of Thrones has been my favorite show. I remember the first time watched it, I was instantly hooked. It began as one of those shows that my friends always bugged me to watch until I finally gave in. And when I did, I ended up binge watching 3 seasons in a matter of weeks. Season...

Last semester I wrote a column sharing my weight loss experience and how much it changed my life. I talked about how great I felt and how scared I was that I might fall off the wagon and gain back the weight I lost. Fortunately, I haven’t gained any of the weight back.

For the past three weeks my life has been consumed with nothing but Netflix binges. Why you ask? Because of a little show called Grey’s Anatomy.

When I was a kid there was only one Barbie; she was tall, blonde, skinny, white, and looked nothing like me. Occasionally I'd go to the toy store and be able to find at least one Barbie with a fairly darker skin tone, but that was about it. For the most part, Barbie is known for being skinny tall and...

Has Our Generation Forgotten How to Love?

Brittany Lee, Staff Writer

December 10, 2015

Has our generation forgotten how to love? This is a question I ponder regularly. To me it seems that we are the generation who has given up on love. We now live in a society where having a “side chick” is the norm, and making someone your “man crush Monday” or “women crush Wednesday” is...
