Canderrian Brown, Da Contest Winner March 28, 2024

I hate it. I hate every second of this “fortunate” experience. Every night is the same with the boys and their coked-up one-night stands in the state we perform in. Red cups filled with expensive liquor...

Sunflowers and Daisies

Hayley Cross, Social Media October 23, 2018

We grew up together, her and I. Planted in the ground at the same time. From little seedlings to where we are now. Growing up next to her made it impossible for me to be seen. Everyone saw her first because...

The Girl in Blue Skin

Saavedra Martin, Copy Editor October 8, 2018

I throw the covers off of me in the dark room and sit up in bed, my shirt sticking to the back of my skin. Swinging my legs off to the side, I get up and head to the kitchen for a fresh glass of…something,...

Kjirsten Whitsell, Editor in Chief October 2, 2018

In a small bar set snugly in the middle of Dublin’s busiest street, an elderly couple toasted each other over drinks on the most popular Irish holiday: St. Patrick’s Day. The bar around them was noisy...

A Winter’s Coat

Jack Vernon, Social Media October 2, 2018

I wake up and it’s dark and I have no idea where I am at, it feels like just a couple seconds ago I was with Jack and the rest of the family being loaded onto a weird bird thing in what seemed to be...
