Meet The Man, The Myth, The Legend: 6 Things About Joe Boggs

Joseph Boggs is a legend at WVU. Today, I sat down with Joseph, who is not only a legend, but is also my best friend.


After interviewing Joe Boggs, here are the six things I found out!

1. School pride is important to him

I asked Joe what it's like for him as a campus celebrity, and he told me this: "It's awesome! Everyone knows me even though I don't know them. But I like to make people happy!"

3. Social life

I asked Joe what he usually does during his days and nights. During the days, Joe focuses on schoolwork. At night, you can find Joe working at Blaze Night Club!

4. What about Joe's friends?

I asked Joe who is friends are! He said that he has plenty of friends, but that a lot of them are a great influence on him. Matt Kaufman and plenty of others (that he can't name) push him to be a better person, myself included. Oh, and we push him to be a better campus celeb, too!

5. Why go to WVU?

I asked Joe why incoming freshmen should consider WVU, and here was his answer: "There are a lot of events to go to here at WVU, like games, Up All Night, Fall Fest, and so many more–as well as great academics!"

6. What's the best part about being a Mountaineer?

"Everyone in the state dreams of going to college here. There is a lot of pride. You can tell which ones have it and don't— most have it, though! We are number one! Let's go, Mountaineers! Hail West Virginia!"

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
