Heartwarming stories are few and far between these days. The news is full of hate crimes, mass shooting and political turmoil. But when a heartwarming story does find its way into the headlines, it sure does feel good. That is until the story is exposed as a dirty scheme and all the hope and joy you felt...

The social group of anti-vaxers, people who do not vaccinate themselves or their children, has been growing in popularity in the past few years. If this group would take the time to do their own research into reliable sources from professionals, they would see the inaccuracies commonly associated ...

Thanksgiving Tips: What to bring home, bring back during break

Thanksgiving Break is a great opportunity to do absolutely nothing. It’s a glorious thought thinking about not doing anything and taking a break from classes and school in general (and even the roommate who may be becoming a tad bit annoying). But, as great as the week sounds, there is some type...

Don’t ruin holiday celebrations with questions

I can see it now: my dining room decked out in fall hues of burnt oranges, warm yellows and deep greens. I can smell it already: homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, juicy slices of turkey and the subtle but delightful tartness of cranberry sauce. I can feel it: the food coma I will comfortably sli...

Don’t celebrate Thanksgiving

The fourth Thursday of November annually marks Thanksgiving for most of us. It’s a commercialized holiday that we’re taught originates from the thanks pilgrims gave to the Native Americans. They had a big feast, everybody was friends, they ate corn and turkey. Hopefully, you’ve learned by now how fa...

If you’ve gone to any athletic events, pep rallies or been present for any campus visits, you may have heard a song being played by the Panther Marching Band that says, “I’m so glad I go to EIU.” When I first heard this song played at the beginning of the semester during convocation for PROW...

It’s family and food season, the time when most families gather in one house, in one room to share a meal together for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Along with eating turkey and other traditional dishes, we give thanks for what we have.  Nearly a decade ago, my family on my dad’s side started th...

Thank goodness, November 6 is done and over with, and I could not be more thrilled. I am thankful to have my ads on Spotify and Hulu not be sponsored by JB Pritzker or Bruce Rauner anymore. Now, pointless ads are back and running, and I have missed them more than I realized. I have nothing against pol...

One positive effect of the president’s yelling

As much as he is criticized by the country, the media and myself, I do see one very valuable and important effect from President Trump’s term so far. That would be that I think younger people are taking more of an interest in politics because of him. Disclaimer: I am not saying that the president...

It is very easy in the midst of conflict to put one’s head down and stay silent. Too often we let others walk all over us in fear of upsetting the status quo or losing relationships. The sad fact is that if one has to suppress their feelings and emotions to maintain a relationship, that relationship ...

Fashion is an enigma.  It’s a cryptic puzzle that takes years of being comfortable with yourself to finally be able to crack. But once you figure out what works for and what you feel (and look) good in then the world seems so simple.  Upon realizing what works for you in regards to fashion, the next thing you can focus on i...
