Love

by Tara Jones April 7, 2014

LOVE isn’t solely for Valentine’s Day. Love is patient and love is kind. Love is for all. You might even think of Nat King Cole’s “Love” or Haddaway’s “What Is Love.” …Baby, don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me no more. Honestly, I think love is so overrated. People give love way too many definitions. Love […]

My First and Last

by Courtney March 16, 2014

I’m not going to lie – when I travel, it’s almost always with my family. I’m close to my family, so we just tend to do things together. I haven’t taken a trip without my family since high school, assuming you count our required overnight religious retreats as “trips.” However, in just a few days, […]

Charity Musings

by Isabella March 10, 2014

This morning, my friend Jes and her father loaded almost 10 bags of gently used clothes and goods into my room. Why? Because I’ve been collecting such donations for the past three months to send to my aunt, who works with the local government in Antique, Philippines, with Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda relief. I am relieved and […]

No Matter What

by Isabella March 7, 2014

I enjoy how I learn so many new things everyday just being here. For example, after living in St. Louis for 5 years, I’m still in awe of how much snow we’ve had. It’s already March and still, the flurries are being spooned on us as if someone up there is pouring flour into this […]

What does it truly mean to dress for success? Now that I am talking an interpersonal communication class I get to explore what this truly means.

Family Time Is The Best.

by Corie February 17, 2014

I spent this weekend with my family and it was great. We had a family friend come in from Chicago. We also were celebrating my cousins 14th birthday. There was a lot of reminiscing and telling new funny stories as usual. Of course while munching on a lot of food. Besides the party I went […]

Love

by Britney February 17, 2014

As you all are aware, Valentines day is coming up. Take time to show anyone of importance how much you love them. Rather it is by spending time with them, giving a hug, or even a smile. Love is not shown in how much money you can spend on that person, it is simply shown […]

“Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand” – Stevie Wonder

by Lauren February 10, 2014

Music plays a huge role in my life. From a young age, I was listening to The Beatles and my tastes have grown since. I will admit that when I think back to what I was listening to when I was thirteen, I cringe a little. I don’t know how my parents allowed me to […]
