Meghan Trainor has been looked up to as this “inspiration” for young and curvy girls. What people fail to realize is behind these catchy, radio-hit songs lies a major problem in the message she’s sending to adolescents. It’s been roughly two years since that annoyingly catchy single “All About That...

As a person who finds an interest in astrology and in people, one question I seem to ask a lot is: "Oh, what's your sign?"only to hear mixed responses of either groans or an excited "Taurus, my birthday is May 14th, and you?" With this process continuing with everyone I meet I can't help but wonder:...

When you’re a kid, the concept of growing up is magical. You get to stay up late, eat as many cookies as you want after dinner and people finally take you seriously. Turns out it’s not all that great. The first road block in growing up is puberty. Pimples, weight gain, voice cracks and raging...

As a person who is frequently asked if I am a dog person or a cat person, I usually stutter out a very quiet and shy "rabbit person?" This often leads to awkward situations and a bombarding string of questions starting with "How on Earth is someone a rabbit person?" to which I answer, "Well, you own ...

Throughout history, it has always been a struggle for women to be seen as equals to men. From ancient times, where women were meant to stay in while the men hunted, to the wild west days where women weren’t allowed to claim land unless it was behind their husband’s name, women have always fought ...

Fruitcake; the epitome of the word nasty. For centuries the “dessert” has been brought into our homes for Christmas parties or as a gift from neighbors. You smile and say thanks, but when they turn their backs, you throw it away. There's so many things wrong with it. Sophomore Dylan Rath says,...

Cranberry sauce; the jelly most recognized during Thanksgiving. Most think it's the grossest thing they've ever seen. It's slimy and squishy and gooey and, for some reason, people tend to not like those things. Especially with the most popular idea of the cranberry sauce that slides out of the can and...

Candy Corn; it's been called too sweet and strange tasting. Some even go as far as saying it reminds them of ear wax. Apparently, there's a universal understanding that candy corn is the absolute worst and should be steered clear of. Its taken a bad rap over the years and it's time someone asked "what's...

I personally love country music. I’ve listened to it for as long as I can remember and it has always been my favorite genre of music. However, today’s country music is absolute garbage and an insult to legendary artists such as Hank Williams and George Jones. Country music once had a terrific meaning wi...
