The Final Push As Finals Rolls Around

The end of the school year can be a bittersweet feeling.

The final push.

It’s that time of the year again, where it is time to buckle down, and end the year on a high note as the lake defrosts and warm weather gets more commonplace.

I think the end of the year is the hardest. It is so hard to find that motivation, the drive to finish the year strong. And during fall semester, finals rolled around right around the time as frigid sub-zero temperatures did, so it didn’t seem so crazy to lock yourself in the warmth of the library or your favorite coffee shop for hours on end.

The story is a little different when in Milwaukee it snows in April, so any temperature upward of 50 is shorts and a tank top weather.

I remember a couple summers back, my friend and I walked up and down the lakefront path during late spring in Chicago, and asked random passerbys what their favorite part or time in Chicago was. One young guy, probably in his twenties, laughed when he said, “Probably when it hits mid 50s, and everyone comes bursting out of their hobbit holes for a long overdue spring.”

I think the same could be said for Milwaukee.

With only a couple weeks left, summer is so close you can almost imagine concerts at Summer Fest and Bradford Beach on Labor Day.

Take advantage of the short time you have left. Study in new places, explore the city, and cherish the time you have with your “college friends.” Before long, they may be trekking back to either coasts, and you will go from seeing them 5 times a day to not seeing them for weeks on end.

There is less than a month less than school, and while that means no more long tests, and monotonous lectures, it is definitely a bittersweet feeling.

The Saturday Called Life

The hard truth about losing a loved one, and the hope that comes along with it.

Lilia Valdez

We all are scared of something. Some people are scared of the ocean, others of spiders or snakes. For me, it's the unknown. I don't like uncertainty nor do I like being blindsided. Due to this, my biggest fear in life was death.

You are not alone - NY Yankees charge their players for WIFI on flights

It was recently in the news that the NY Yankees do not provide free wifi for their players on away game flights!!! That's earth shattering news because teams usually charter flights for their players, coaches, and support staff. These flights are typically equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and in-flight entertainment.

I Remember That Saturday

A memory that I will forever remember.


It was a Saturday night. We had nothing else to do besides be with one another. We were normally always in your bedroom watching television and talking about random topics that popped into our little brains. The only difference was, that Saturday night was nothing like the rest.
