January 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

College is an opportunity to gain a higher education and set the ground for a successful future, but it is also thought to be a young adult’s first chance at freedom. Typically, college is a person’s first opportunity to truly govern themselves void of any unwanted influences. Consequently, this means that for the average...

Resolutions not just for the New Year

January 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

The New Year and resolutions go hand in hand. It seems like they always have. Apparently, the Babylonians used to make resolutions to their gods at the start of every year, as well.

Filed under Opinion

Oh, relationships. Will they sink, or will they float? This depends on what your philosophy, or framework of your “boat” so to speak, says about your opinions on them.

Fairy tales bring false love concepts

November 9, 2011

Filed under Opinion

It seems that as the years go by, the human race is becoming more advanced in everything we do. One thing I notice, though, is that love is still stuck in the dark ages. Everyday girls say that they have yet to find the right person. A person who makes them feel butterflies, or see fireworks after a romantic kiss. Yet two...

October 13, 2011

Filed under Opinion

Have you ever wanted to just pack up everything and travel the world? I know I have. There are so many places around the world that I would love to go to, but simply do not have the time or money. With the next few years of my life taken up with school, a career, and hopefully a family, I probably will not be able to drop everything...

October 13, 2011

Filed under Opinion

How many of us have taken English Comp II or are taking it this semester? Or Abnormal Psychology for that matter? What is a common theme that is often referred to in those classes, or any other class? Critical Thinking.
