2017 went by in the blink of an eye and it's crazy to think we already just started another year. For those of you that continuously write "2016", or some other past year on your papers, this is going to be especially hard for you. For everyone else, here is your chance to start off the year right, surrounded by the people and things you love. It's exciting and refreshing to have a clean slate, and hopefully, we'll make the most of it!

It's the start of something new

Happy New Year!!! 2018 is here and is going to be the best year yet, right? With everyone making resolutions, there will definitely be some new habits, thoughts, ideas, and actions carried out this year. It's undoubtedly the start of something new, and hopefully better!

It's out with the old, & in with the new

Coming upon the New Year, thinking about the things you want to say goodbye to in 2018 and about the things you want to keep 2018 is essential. Goodbye iTunes gift cards, and hello Apple Music.

Now or never

New Years is a fresh start, and is a time when you feel like you can conquer anything and everything. Now is the time to do it, and don't wait, or it'll likely never happen.

Breaking Free

Although getting over bad habits is hard, there is no better time to break them then the new year. Leave them in the past, and better yourself in the present. Break free from negative stereotypes, hurtful words, and the status quo, you're better than that.

I gotta go my own way

There are toxic people and things in everyone's lives. Sorry to that "friend" who takes and takes and takes and never gives, or the pair of shoes that always gives me blisters, but you're getting left in 2017. There's no room for you in my life anymore.

Getcha head in the game

Maybe first semester was a little rocky for you. Maybe you're just getting back into the scholastic mindset after a long summer, or it was tailgate season and school simply just came second. Whatever the reason, now is the time to buckle down and really focus on school, and make this the semester that you do your absolute best.

Bop to the Top

.....of your game. Like I said, maybe last semester was slow. In order for this semester to be the absolute best, you want to be on top of the world in all respects: health, school, friendships, partying, sleep, family, relationships, fitness, or even being a better person.


For bad habits to be gone for good, the good ones need to replace them every, single, day. Yeah, maybe after those good habits are established then you can have a break every now and then. However, right now the good ones need to be put into place everyday for them to work.


Above all, you want this year to be fabulous, and it will be. Whatever you decide to do and whoever you decide to be, it's never too late. Make 2018 the best year yet and have it be absolutely fabulous.

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'

Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment – YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FmWuCgJmxo

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?
