The Thanksgiving holiday is all about family and food. While it is hard to determine when you have had “too much” family, it is clear when you have had too much food. Are your favorite skinny jeans fitting a little snug at the waistband? Are you feeling that energy drain that often occurs after a […]
Have you ever realized how much we use our feet? On a daily basis we are walking to class, climbing up and down stairs, pressing the gas pedal and brake and standing up for multiple hours at work. Although it may not occur to us, our feet are extremely vital to our everyday lives. Therefore, […]
With this Black Friday app, planning ahead of time will be a breeze.
As a 21-year-old college student my mind is always set on the on-set of a very imminent quarter-life crisis. The quote “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable” said by John Green, runs through my mind daily and a fear rises inside my soul that […]

As university students, we are not the most wealthy population in the world. While some students maintain part time jobs or temporary paid-internships, most of us simply go to school. This means money is a factor in our everyday lives. We try to be careful where we spend each and every hard earned dollar, so […]
A very prominent change in nature can be noticed during Fall Break. The leaves change color, the weather turns colder and sunbeams become luxuries. Like a few of the trees that I saw over my Fall Break, I have only a few leaves on my bare skeleton. But instead of losing more, I make more. […]
