This is random and doesn’t really have to go with the review, but doesn’t John Mayer look like he could be a doctor in Grey’s Anatomy? He seems like a Dr. McGroovy. — When it says “Premium Content”, it is not joking because–my god–John Mayer delivered. This man may be the only forty year in […]

To Church

To Church

There was a time I didn’t dread going to church.   The carpet would dot my knees with peaks and valleys, unnoticed vexations of genuflection left until the service’s conclusion, testaments to my concentration’s depth.

Happy World Poetry Day! Meet us at the Student Union March 22 from 2-4:45p! On the first day of spring I was given flowers Though darkness that day would bring That was its sweetest hour Sunshine kissed the sky Though I had lost my favorite kiss The colors of each petal shined so bright I […]

For the record, I’m not disabled. I just wanted to tell this story. My advanced apologies to the disabled community. Some people say that I’m intense or I’m insane. I think I’m driven to fulfill my mission. I refuse to let disability stop me or anyone else. Not anymore. One night, while I was in […]

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

I’ll never understand how time can make a moment feel as close as yesterday and as far as years. I feel weird admitting this to the Internet, but that’s the only way I can do this this review. I fell in love with a boy. He was my best friend, and I didn’t understand the […]
