Epstien's Death: What We Know So Far

Former billionaire and Wall Street Money Manager Jeffery Epstien passed away in his jail cell over the weekend and his life was just as shady as his death.

He was born in January of 1953 in New York City, to a pair of working class parents. Eventually he would rise above that and become a powerful Wall Street Figure.

The Me Too movement uncovered horrific tales of sexual abuse on minors, as it has for so many other rich and powerful men in the upper sections of American society and culture. The court documents state that the youngest victim was 14 years old. Epstien was known to spend time with other famous, powerful men, including Bill Clinton and Kevin Spacey, among others. He owned an island where some of these assaults took place, as well as a plane called "The Lolita Express", named after the infamous novel about a pedophile.

He was eventually arrested and placed on suicide watch after he was found unconscious in his cell, with marks that were deemed to be self inflicted around his neck.

On August 10th, 2019, Epstien was found dead in his cell and guards desperately attempted to revive him upon discovery. An autopsy was done, but the results are pending at this time.

While we sadly will never get to see Epstien go to trial, it appears that his alleged co-conspirators, and even those who worked at the prison where he died, It may be that prison guards falsified records relating to the death of the inmate and it appears that a few prison guards have already acquired defense attorneys.

Only time will tell what will happen, but it appears that even though Epstien has died, there is still justice to be had. Both for the crimes that Epstien allegedly committed on his island and his private plane, as well as for potential negligence or a cover up in his death. There are many pieces to the puzzle already found, and perhaps there are still more to be uncovered. For now however, it continues to be a bizarre and confusing case.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
