I have never played the Detective Pikachu video game, and I do not really have a desire to. I am sure it is fun and unique, but I just have no interest in playing it. But seeing the trailer for the movie of the same title, due for a May 2019 release, I am excited. Of course there have been plenty...

As my college life draws to a close, I have been struck with an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. I suddenly find myself with tears in my eyes at random moments. Each time I go somewhere or do something, I am oftentimes hit with the realization that it is the last time I will do so. As graduation...

Filed under Columns, Opinions

As a history major, I appreciate the pieces of history that are still preserved in the modern day. It is truly fascinating looking at sources from past eras and imaging all the things that happened with this certain document, image, statue and so on. One thing I do fully support is the preservation of historica...

I’ve been rather upset with myself, lately. Looking through the Fashion Friday columns that I’ve written, I cringed at how mediocre my writing was, and quite frankly, I’m embarrassed. When I decided to write about fashion, I wanted to encourage people to dress however they wanted and convince them that...

With one holiday already passed and another quickly approaching, most of us are fully immersed in the spirit of giving. I find myself in that spirit as well. I am back this week to give you all a gift before finals take away your last chance to get the GPA you wanted this whole semester but didn’t e...

Buy that person you don’t know what to get for Christmas a Wood Labyrinth

Filed under Columns, Opinions

It’s the perfect, treasured game for young and old alike. It’s timeless—and time consuming. It’s good for the mind. It can be used as an exercise in concentration. What is it, you may be asking. Does it include David Bowie, you may also be asking. I can answer both of those so that you can be a ...

I have recently started waking up at six in the morning— every morning. I know, some of you may be absolutely mind-blown at the fact that someone (particularly a college student) actively wakes up at six a.m. every morning by choice. But my simple reason is, I enjoy it. And I have learned to lis...

It is the holiday season, which means lights and decorations are everywhere, including in dorm rooms. My roommate and I have had Christmas decorations up since before we left for Thanksgiving break and added even more after we came back. I love the holiday spirit that a lot of people get into this ...

Now that it is getting colder outside and winter is right around the corner, people are not going outside as often on campus unless they are headed to class. Students are taking shortcuts through buildings to get to their next class so they do not have to stay outside as long. I know I have cut t...

It’s Christmas time! This has always been my favorite time of year for many reasons. I love decorating the tree and making the house look magical. I love listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies that always have the same basic plot (I know, I know, but they make me happy). I love th...

First off, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the frenzy of tornadoes in central Illinois that struck down on Saturday. I have felt the fear of a tornado going by and going through my town, so I cannot imagine what those who had damage done to their livelihood and pr...
