The other night, my favorite 13-year-old ever called me and said, “Kaka, all my so-called friends are talking bad about me behind my back.”  Of course, me being her older sister, I wanted to handle this on my own; however, knowing that her friends have done this off and on since they started ju...

December 4, 2019

I spent part of my Thanksgiving Break sitting in on a sociology class at my previous college, with the main intention of heckling a previous instructor after he had finished the lesson, and of course just to say hi.  Earlier in the day I visited other instructors I had at Lake Land.  The next day I ha...

Relationship advice in time for Valentine’s Day

Abby Carlin, Columnist

February 1, 2018

We all have that friend—the one who has never been in a long term relationship, yet possesses a mouth big enough to contain all the relationship advice one could ever want (but does not)—and we do our best to take them seriously. However, logic would dictate that experience is usually a prerequisite to giving ...

Clear out your junk and go live

Liz Stephens, Columnist

September 10, 2017

A question I have had on my mind lately is “why do we put so much value in material items or just stuff?” We work our hind ends off in life to buy stuff, whether it be luxury stuff or cheap stuff. I think it is a weird concept and habit we have by revolving our entire life around buying things and...

As we begin our fall semester at Eastern, it is well known that our school, and the whole world for that matter, have many troubles afoot.
