Spring break is getting closer, and with it are travel plans. I have been planning to go to Texas for the first few days of my spring break to spend some time with my boyfriend who is there for the Air Force. For the remainder of my break, after my trip, I plan on working or relaxing. It’s not just...

Find what makes you happy and do it

Find what makes you happy and do it. That is my new motto that I have chosen to live by. In the past, I would care about what my friends said, and I would try and change just to fit in, but I started to feel like I was not myself anymore, and that is when I knew I had to stop. Some of my friends thi...

In case you’ve been living under a rock these past couple of weeks, allow me to give you some news that will (possibly) get you excited: The Jonas Brothers are back. On Friday, they released “Sucker,” their first single in years, along with a music video, featuring each brother’s significant o...

I went home one weekend recently and I noticed something about people’s reactions to something funny. I was joking around with my family when my mom started to laugh. While she was in the middle of laughing, she paused to say, “that’s funny.” I realized that I had heard other people say this before when...

Global warming isn’t just warm weather

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

March 3, 2019


Filed under Columns

Since I came to Eastern three years ago (2016), I have started wondering about the circumstances around global warming. I had noticed that winter seemed to start later than usual: By that I mean I noticed that we got snow and the cold temperatures later in the winter season, basically right when sprin...

Don’t conform to others’ versions of ‘fun’

Andrew Paisley, Opinion Editor

March 3, 2019


Filed under Columns

Everyone has fun in their own way. Some people like to sit around and play cards or board games with friends. Others like to go out on the town and party. And then, some people like to curl up with a blanket on the couch and watch old black and white films. My idea of fun has drastically changed over ...

“Mindhunter” season one premiered on Netflix in October 2017, and we still do not have a season two. This show was a massive success, and shortly after the premiere of season one, a new season was announced to begin production. “Mindhunter” is a dramatized true crime drama that is based off the true story of the...

Karl Marx’s tomb at the London Highgate Cemetery has been vandalized twice in the past few weeks, and this is nothing more then a desperate attempt of pointless political protest. According to The Guardian, Marx’s tomb was vandalized on Feb. 5 and the suspected vandal used a hammer to chip away at...

Just get your vaccinations

Logan Raschke, News Editor

March 1, 2019


Filed under Columns

It isn’t often people stumble across an evidence-based, essential part of their health to find flaws in and emotionally debate with others. Vaccinations have been proven time and time again that they are very important for us humans to get, but still people have conjured ways to deny that. I’m going...

What is the rush? Live life in the moment

In high school, my freshman year health teacher had us do this assignment where we wrote down our goals for the future and sort of allocated our resources. Well, I knew what I wanted—how I flipped to being completely unsure of myself by junior/senior year has a lot to do with this. (Everything make...

Change, growing apart is a natural part of life

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

February 27, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I don’t think I am alone when I say this: change is hard. And it really sucks. Accepting change has always been difficult for me. I have never been able to grasp how things can change seemingly all at once, right under my nose with a neon blinking sign that says “BUCKLE UP, BUMPY ROAD AHEAD.” ...

Disadvantages of being a taller female

Over our recent break, I went to Chicago with a couple of my friends. One of the places we went to was the Woodfield Mall. I have been in desperate need of new tennis shoes. I stopped at one shoe store and the biggest size they went up to was a women’s 10. Of course, that is where 99 percent of sh...
