Spring Semester 2019: What to Expect?

We are coming up on the Spring Semester, what should you expect?


Well, it is becoming that time again. The time where we say goodbye to our families and taken are perfectly folded, clean laundry and shove it in a drawer. Now that students will soon make their way back, it is time to understand what you should expect this semester. This semester will end with summer vacation, and in many cases will feel like it is going by very quickly. Otherwise, here is what I feel you should expect for this semester in 2019.

New classes mean nothing is the same... New teachers are something that we have all expected this semester, but new teachers can present new challenges. New teachers mean new syllabi to follow and a whole new set of rules. Some teachers might not care about the attendance policy others not so much. You will experience some amazing teachers, and then you might experience others that you wish you did not take. No matter what you get, remember this is only for one semester and you can do it!

Seeing friends again...... Even though you might have seen old friends during the break, you will not be able to see your friends that you have made in college. Being away from them might have been hard since some of those people are your support system. Other times it was a relief because some of them are annoying. If it was the second case, then I suggest that you find a new group of friends. Anyways, surrounding yourself with the people that have been there for you is the best situation.

Back to late nights..... Yes, this means that there are going to be those nights where you forgot to do that one assignment, paper or test, and are up all night to do or study for. There are going to be those nights where you want to burn every piece of paper and watch them while they diminish. It is important that you take the time and try to schedule everything out otherwise you are going to lose your mind. I want this semester to be over as soon as possible, but that means stress.

Finally signing up for classes in the fall... Yes, I know that it might be too far ahead but we need to look in the future. If we do not then before you know registration will be here and you will be screwed. It is important to try to plan for the classes that you need to take and have a plan for graduation. Some of those classes might not be your favorite, but you need to take them otherwise you can kiss that degree goodbye. I am hoping, along with everyone else that I will get the classes I need, but I do not make any promised to myself that I know I cannot keep.

Finally, I would like to say that I wish everyone and happy and healthy New Year. It might be stressful for some and easy for others but in the end, the New Year can bring endless opportunity to all. So go out there and kick some ass!

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
