Put a Ring on It (Equality Version): The MANgagement Rings

April 30, 2018

Sitting on my bed, legs crossed, and a blank comment for a discussion on Canvas staring laughingly at me, I tap the keys half-heartedly in a rhythm that does not match the beat of the music I’m listening to. Inspiration for Pitch 10, a.k.a. the article-that-calls-out-journalism-unbiasness-but-it’s-not-true-unbias-because-that-doesn’t-exist, and boy,...

I Guess it Rains Down in Africa

I Guess it Rains Down in Africa

April 30, 2018

“I guess it rains down in Africa” blares through your dreams and jars you back into consciousness.

The Nerf Gun War had been the topic of conversation for weeks around the Baptist Student Union, or as we call it, BSU. People that didn’t even own Nerf guns and especially didn’t know how to use them and Nerf War veterans alike were talking about it. There was talk about how to set up the building and how to divide up teams....

Cash Cow

May 3, 2017

It is an universally acknowledged truth that a single college student in possession of a limited allowance must be in want of an apartment.   The drive to the apartment complex passed in a flurry of chatter between my friend (let’s call her Ally) and me, our flapping mouths masking what was really on our minds....
