When I was thinking on what to write for my last column of the semester, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to tackle. There’s plenty of challenging issues facing our nation, but it’s hard to cut through the noise of a house divided. So I wanted to write on beliefs. I’ve been around, and I like...

Time may fly, but we have our memories

April 23, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

The cliché saying that “time flies” is one we should not take lightly. Life has felt like it has been on fast forward since the moment I got here. When I arrived for my first weekend at Eastern in August 2015, I felt nervous but liberated. I no longer would have to live at home with my family,...

True love will come in time

Andrew Paisley, Contributing Writer

April 23, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

Sometimes I wonder if I will ever find the person I am destined to be with. It seems like I can never truly find the right person. And I often ask myself how much longer it is going to take for me to finally find the person who does not have major flaws or problems. People tell me all the time...

Books are gifts, not burdens

Filed under Columns, Opinions

I have written about this once before in the past, but it is something I stand by with unwavering loyalty:  One of the best gifts to give someone is a book.    Today, it seems like society is divided into two types of people: people who love reading and people who absolutely hate it.    Boo...

If you have ever been taught by music professor Richard Rossi (Dr. Rossi) you would know that you never leave his class without having laughed or smiled at least once. The only exception would be if you didn’t put his markings into your score or if you failed on testing day due to not practicing—th...

Sean Says: Time flies and the early years seem like only yesterday

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

April 20, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I will be honest. I do not think the scariest part about graduating is graduating itself, but moreso how fast the last four years have gone by. It has really been hitting me lately that in two short weeks Eastern will be just a memory and come August, I will not be packing my bags to move back to ...

You need patience, time to learn how to prioritize

Analicia Haynes, Managing Editor

April 20, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

College sucks. But what sucks even more is going through college not knowing what the hell you’re doing. Sure, your elders and other columnists from what it seems can tell you to prioritize and work on your own mental health and all that other jazz. What they don’t tell you, however, is the t...

Healthy skin is what everyone craves, especially when we are so interested in showing off our skin with a natural glow. Truth be told, healthy skin means bright skin.  While expensive creams and serums have the ability to even out our skin tone, reduce the appearance of spots and brighten up a du...

Love and loss can both teach us lessons

Abigail Carlin, Columnist

April 19, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

In her book, “Written on the Body” (1992), Jeanette Winterson writes, “why is the measure of Love loss?”  I read this text when I was 18 yearsold as a recommendation from a professor. Not a day has passed since I read that sentence, over and over again, on the steps of Doudna that I have n...

Think before you post on social media

Filed under Columns, Opinions, Uncategorized

Social media is a plague that poisons everyone and brainwashes them to think that their opinions are the most important ones out there. People are just so eager to put their thoughts out there without question or doubt, because they know they won’t feel “attacked” thanks to that nifty computer...

I don’t really have anything to say this week, so here’s a fun primer on America’s abusive relationship with corporations in the form of a listicle.  1. The time half the country decided the actor Ronald Reagan would make a good president  Yeah yeah, I know we’ve got some Reagan lovers o...

Thoughts on music, memory and wine

As I sat on my “art stool” working on a project during my senior year of high school, my art teacher, Kate Bretzlaff, broke the classroom’s silence with a carefully selected playlist. Before she revealed her personalized setlist, she said something to the class that stuck with me: “You should...
