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

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...

Money problems of the typical college student

Filed under Columns, Opinions

A shirt that I had said “The best things in life are free.” To me, “free” can mean one of two things: Something can be free in regard to no payment needed for something typically paid for, and free from burdens. Someone can get an item for free and also be free of financial problems. I can g...

Cheating is not OK

You are not in an open relationship if you are the only one who knows about it; you just suck. As relationships evolve and change into being a variety of things, we at The Daily Eastern News believe in being honest with yourself and your partner(s) about what you are doing. If what you are doing i...

Instead of hating on people, stay quiet

I was introduced to Lil Pump’s music a couple of years ago by a friend, and my reaction was the same as many who listen to the rapper’s music for the first time: what is this? Keep in mind, this was before “Gucci Gang” and the Kanye collaboration “I Love It.” At the time, Lil Pump had only...

Gen Z, Gen X both have texting problems

Filed under Columns, Opinions

My generation, the Gen Z (or iGen), gets a lot of hate for being on our phones, and I’m not going to make any excuses for us, but I am going to draw attention to those Gen Xs (iGen’s parents and grandparents) that are just as guilty of the addiction to technology as everyone else claims we are. Ther...

Filed under Columns, Opinions

The following review contains spoilers for “The Dragon Prince” season two. Netflix recently released “The Dragon Prince” season two, and it is way better than the first season. I was not expecting to get another season so quick, being that season one only debuted five months ago. Hopefully ...

Adopt a cat, your new friend

Logan Raschke, News Editor

Filed under Columns

I have a black-gray shorthair cat with white mittens and a little button on his chin named Charcoal. I like to tell people, ‘I wish that dot on his chin was an off-button.’ I don’t know exactly how much he weighs (probably about 12-15 pounds); all I know for sure is that his paunch (the chunky ...

Change DARE curriculum to actually help students

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

February 21, 2019


Filed under Columns

If you have gone to grade school in the past 30 to 40 years, you more then likely graduated from the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program. I vaguely remember DARE when I was in grade school. A local police officer came in and taught students how to not succumb to peer pressure and not use d...

How to read multiple books at once and keep up

Megan Keane, Columnist

February 20, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I was recently asked how I keep track of the plots of all the books I’m reading—and I was dumbfounded. Upon declaring that I was reading four books at once—three for class and one for fun—my father was appalled. “How do you keep track of all that?” I think I responded: “With bookmarks....
