New Phone, Who Is This?
Ghada Abouhaidar

This article is both an obituary to my old phone and a birth announcement to my new baby. A couple days ago, I swapped out my silver iPhone 5 for a gold 6s. Now I know the transition from a phone that was so overused and old that it burned my hands every time I used it (I kid you not!) to a brand spankin' new, full of storage phone should be exciting, but it kinda stung. I physically cannot let go of my old phone. It all of a sudden started working better than ever. It let me take pictures, the Internet didn't cut off right as I started using maps, the lock button worked, and the burning wasn't so bad anymore.

I realized how many memories I have had with it since my sophomore year of high school. It was there to witness all the awkward conversations I had with boys and people I used to know. It's traveled the world with me and fallen down the concrete stairs of my grandparents' home in Lebanon. It's even survived getting thrown across El Sol Nightclub (on accident I swear, also shoutout to Brian McDonald for bringing it back to me when I didn't even realize it had left my hand). It even has a little baby crack on the top from when I stepped on it in boots after throwing a pumpkin off of the top of the UBOB parking deck (oops!).

With all of that being said, I think I'm scared to have a new phone because it's such a clean slate. My new phone came with a new number which is even scarier. I now have 18 contacts. Eighteen! What's gonna happen when someone texts my old number? Will it tell them I disconnected my line or are they just gonna think I'm swerving them? What if someone texts me and confesses their love for me and I never get it because I have this new number? Aye, just kidding, but seriously how do I get my Tropical Smoothie coupons switched to my new number? Alas another article has come and gone; I'm gonna go look at how ugly I am on this 38573457834 megapixel selfie camera!! TTYL!!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
