Students often joke about various ways to pay for college, such as getting run over by a city bus, selling drugs, finding a sugar daddy or stripping. Once I made a joke to my mom about how I should become a stripper because I'd make lots of money and it would force me to exercise. She started crying,...

Imagine you’re back in high school, sitting in math class and you are suddenly surrounded by the smell of death. You think the zombie apocalypse is upon you, but you realize the smell is emanating from one of your classmate’s backpacks. You ask them, “What’s in your bag?” He is silent and opens...

People should live together before getting married. Living together is an important test run to see how married life would be, because you never really know a person until you've lived with them.

Halloween is my favorite holiday because you don't have to buy anyone presents, but you get to dress up as whoever you want to be, all while raking in free candy. Unfortunately, as I get older, I notice fewer trick-or-treaters at my door. When talking with friends, family, classmates, etc. when asked...

"Thor: Ragnorak" is coming to theaters this November, and this movie contains Marvel’s first major female villain.

Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's good, and just because something is illegal doesn't mean it's bad. After all, divorce was illegal for most of our history. And people argue about guns in this context everyday. But the biggest cultural example of this is marijuana and cigarettes. Marijuana...

Some like to argue that it's a part of human nature to compete. However, competition, is in my opinion — a social construct. The only thing that's natural for humans to do is survive and love. Everything seems to be a competition nowadays. School is no longer about learning or betting yourself....

One of President Donald Trumpís biggest platforms while running for president was his foreign policies and intentions for immigrants. However, Trumpís travel ban and views on immigration are hypocritical and unconstitutional. America was formed by immigrants. The only reason we get to decide who...
