  When I originally told my friends that I would not be talking for a day, I received mixed reactions. Some thought I was nuts, while others agreed that it was a cool social experiment.   I did not anticipate how hard it would actually be. I chose Sunday, Nov. 6, to test this out...

Suppose there are two groups posed to you, and you have to decide which group seems more diverse: a group filled with an Asian, Mexican, black person and a white person, or a group filled with only white people.

Election Day has arrived and I have heard many people choose to opt out from voting claiming both candidates are disagreeable.

This election year many things are different; the most glaring difference this year is how personal someone’s politics have become. It seems like placing your vote in that ballot box says more about your character than anything else ever could. A vote for Donald Trump or a vote for Hillary Clinton seems to c...

A good start to the week is very important and everyone starts their week in differently. Last week, I started my week by locking myself in my car at 11 p.m. and screaming from a stress-induced panic attack. This was not a new thing either. Social anxiety disorders affect 6.8 percent of the U....

Walking in, I felt nothing but excitement. The stereotypes of psychics are true. All I saw was a dark room filled with many candles, pillows, buddha figures and a small table which was placed in the corner of the room, obvious enough to be for her readings.   The room had a serene vibe that was...

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump’s three presidential debates have generated plenty of discussion. Not because they examined each candidate’s political agenda but because of the very distinctive physical presence each candidate had onstage. They are full ...
