Unforgivable.   In 2014, a study was done by the New York Post to discuss whether or not parents should spy on their children’s electronic devices.

Ask your parents about their childhood, how they didn’t use computers or phones, but used books from the library instead. Did they have to visit the library every time they had to research something? If they did, they know what it’s like to not have their hands full of technology like we do. H...

One of the most common activities that students do to enjoy a night out is to go to a movie theater. Watching a new movie that just came out, hanging out with your friends and munching on some popcorn is a cool option for any Friday night. Of course, we all just hate the typical theater seats. When you...

Filed under Opinion

Side hugs. While controversial, we have to discuss them sometime. Ever felt rejected because you got a side hug? Sadly, we all have...many times. On the plus side, it’s a good way to show someone straight up that you don’t like them. Let’s be honest here, they are so awkward! You’re obviously not get...

Do you remember the good old days, where everybody on your team got an award, even the waterboy and the players who rode left bench?  I didn’t realize it back then, but these were actually participation awards that focused on trying, not personal accomplishments.  We didn’t reward the winners, bu...

“Seems legit.” “Aww naw dudes.” “Sounds lit fam.” “I’m shookith!” Everyone goes through the day hearing some kind of slang. Who knows, maybe you even speak this “new language.” Do you know what the actual meaning of the term “lit” means? Unfortunately, short commu...
