If quarantine has done one thing to me, it has brought out my inner 80-year-old grandmother. The best example of this is the emergence of my puzzling addiction.  It all started when my mother brought home a Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker puzzle from Target. It was 1,000 pieces, and she thought it would be the solution to my boredom. Little did she know...

As we all know, quarantine can be mind numbingly boring. It gives us the free-time we all thought we needed. Now that I have all this free time I can’t seem to think of anything to do. All I can think of is how much I miss my friends and all the fun things I would have been doing right now. My screen...

There are a lot of terrible things that Covid-19 has resulted in, however the number of positives that have come from this global pandemic is something worth recognizing.  As a Starbucks barista, I often experience the parts of the job that go unseen: spilt drinks, sassy customers, and messed up o...

Much to the chagrin of “Moderate Democrats,” Bernie Sanders won Nevada, also anointing him with the “Triple Crown”, winning the Iowa caucus,--though Pete Buttigieg did try to claim victory before a single vote had been tabulated--the New Hampshire Primary, and now the Nevada Caucuses. If the...

Speaking Towards Sanity

Mila Skrivan, Junior Reporter

March 1, 2020

I’d be naïve to believe that therapy will solve all my problems. But over these past few years, I’ve found that talking to someone on a biweekly basis keeps me somewhat sane.  Therapy isn’t always easy; it can be time consuming, mentally draining, and overwhelming at times. Sometimes you ne...

All I can focus on is the snow; a white blanket that seamlessly covers the ground, leaving the world a silent, emotionless wasteland, icicles that dangle precariously from the window, water dripping in a steady, rhythmic beat that matches my heart pounding in my ears, and my heavy breathing that cau...

It feels like a lifetime ago, but 25 short days ago, Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was assassinated while waiting in an airport our ally, Iraq. The United States military assassinated a foreign military official on foreign soil, the soil of our “partners in peace.” Soleimani was acting as a dip...

There’s nothing more exciting then waking up to the shrill sound of an alarm at 3 AM on the morning of an international vacation. Actually, depending on who you ask, that last sentence may have been a lie, but for the sake of this article, we are going to pretend it’s true.  For some people, tra...
