The following review contains spoilers for “Alita: Battle Angel.” “Alita: Battle Angel,” based on the Japanese manga series “Gunnm” (“Battle Angel Alita” in the English translation) by Yukito Kishiro, was a success for live action anime/manga adaptations, but failed in many aspects. ...

When I was 16, I got my first job working at my local Monical’s Pizza. I stayed there for two years waitressing, cooking, working drive thru and everything in between. While working at Monical’s, I had my fair share of encounters with upset customers, overreacting customers and the ones who just think...

President Donald Trump recently tweeted that “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!” At first, I scoffed at the tweet, writing it off as just another example of the President getting a little too worked up and sending out some all-caps nonsense for the American people to rip to ...

If you think Trump won, you’re wrong

I will be the first to admit that I thought President Trump had outplayed and outsmarted everyone. Not that I support him or want him to, but it looked like he was going to get his glorious wall. First he shuts the government down to try and break the democrats into giving him money for the border ...

Born in 1950, my grandma didn’t know technology. Typewriters and rotary phones were the way to communicate outside of a world that was majority face-to-face interactions. Today, she uses technology every day. I have heard many people from my grandma’s generation talk about how invested my generatio...

Embrace Valentine’s Day instead of hating it

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Although today is filled with pinks and reds, your feelings about it may be black or white: you hate it or you love it. For a long time, I hated Valentine’s Day. One reason for this is because of my hatred for any and all things pink. The main reason, however, is because of my own self. A lot of th...

Filed under Columns, Opinions

It’s important to take every opportunity that’s available to you. Even if that opportunity is sleeping a couple hours instead of bothering to hustle to class. We must remember, however, that  it’s important not to spread ourselves too thin. I’m realizing that quickly. As a student, I can vou...

I am a Residence Hall Association (RHA) representative for Stevenson Hall. Each member has to be a part of a committee, and I'm a part of the community service committee. Recently, the committee went to Walmart to get children's books to donate. We had $50 to spend, and I thought the money would go a...

Karen … Katrina … Korenna? My name has been said and spelled many different ways. From leaving out a letter to adding a letter, I know when my name is being called when the teacher starts to sound it out. I have always thought of my name as complicated. I would always ask my parents why they didn...

Within the last few years, the trend of being a “dog mom” has risen dramatically, and with that trend has come thousands of dog Instagram profiles. For those of you who don’t know, Instagram is a social media platform where users can share pictures and videos with their followers. I used to m...

Almost five years ago, I moved to Charleston from Austin, Texas, a city with food so good that New York City now has Austin-inspired restaurants (according to ny.eater.com).

Knowing the basics of sports is good

You do not need to know who hit a walk-off home run 59 years ago to win a World Series game for his team. You do not even need to know how to keep track of fantasy points for whatever league the situation calls for. But you should probably have an idea of what teams are good, or if you are from a spor...
