“My name is Basilio Medina. I am 50 years old. I am a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” I closed my watering eyes and turned away from the TV screen as I realized that was the first time I heard his voice in nearly five years. The last time I heard that sweet, calming voice was in the parkin...

Looking through the pages of old photo albums, I’m fascinated by how little I’ve changed. My face is still as chubby as it’s been since I was an infant, and I still have little glasses perched on the bridge of my nose. But as I run my fingers over the photographs, I am instantly comforted...

My backpack, a metrocard, and a friendly warm southern smile are all I had with me when I arrived to the ‘Big Apple’. Just a warning, there is no giant apple in the middle of the city, do not be fooled the way I was. Ever since I can remember, I knew there was something about New York City that felt...

On Wednesday, Nov. 9th, I awoke hoping for a miracle. I didn’t get one. Election results summed up everything that the election had been about: upsets, fear, and the unexpected. Most polls were wrong. The New York Times, which had just a few days earlier given Hillary Clinton a 91 percent ch...

After the largest mass shooting in U.S. history took place Sunday in a gay nightclub in Florida, America experienced the same shock seen after countless incidents of the same type in recent years; Aurora, Newtown, Colorado Springs, San Bernardino, and now Orlando to name a few. These are the mass...

Last February, the issues surrounding the diversity of Academy Awards exploded. These problems plagued the Awards for decades, but snubbing Will Smith of a nomination for the movie Concussion forced many to question how whitewashed Hollywood was.

The combination of soft piano melodies and her simple vocals prevent the songs’ messages from getting lost among the music. With her smooth, melodic voice, Ruth B’s songs could be equally beautiful without any instruments. She brings the narrative songs of Adele and the gentle melodies of Regina Spektor together to create uniquely beautiful songs and messages.

The Chip Deficiency

March 1, 2016

      As a teenager, there is a certain amount of time that you can go without a little snack. By the time your lunch period comes along, that time is just about up. Waiting in the lunch line, you eye down the rack of any kind of junk food you wish for. There is always the typical meal given, a hambu...

Naptime

January 29, 2016

       Remember the time you dreaded the hour your teacher would turn the lights off and tell you to take a nap? Yeah, those were the days. You would grab your towel, crawl under some little desk and pretend to fall asleep. You would crack your eyes open just a smidge to see what was going on, even ...
