Smelling the aroma of lunch, I continue my long walk to the lunchroom. As I enter the cafeteria, I notice a smug of something on my friend’s forehead. “Hey,” I call over to her, “you have something on your forehead!” She only looks at me, as if I am incredibly dumb, and gives me a flat look …

Lent is a period of 40 days, from Ash Wednesday leading up to Easter. It’s a time where people will often practice fasting, or giving up something they enjoy, so they can remind themselves of Jesus’ sacrifice for them. Typically, Catholics participate in this, but I know people outside of Ca…

Lent, by definition is a “solemn religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends approximately six weeks later, before Easter Sunday.” But what does it actually consist of? Lent consists of the time where most Christians, including myself give …

    Everyone has goals to accomplish, people to see, and places to be. I’m no exception, and sometimes I get so caught up in life, I forget to slow down and actually live in the moment.

    Lent is a Christian season of practice, celebrated by some Christians though not all. Christians use the season of Lent to prepare hearts and minds for the mystery of the resurrection, but it is all celebrated differently. I celebrate Lent, though I do not actually give anything up. I am a P…

    Valentine’s Day is among the most contentious of holidays. There are those who eagerly anticipate the 14th while others claim the entire holiday is merely an excuse for big corporations to make you feel obligated to spend money on their Valentine’s Day products. I believe that the holiday ha…

    Personally I don’t like Valentine’s Day. Honestly it’s just another day that has an excuse to buy someone something.

    I genuinely enjoy Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is a fun day dedicated to couples. I think it is good for couples to dedicate a day to spend time with each other. Life can get very busy and doing the small things for a significant other can be pushed aside. Valentine’s Day is a good time …

    While many people enjoy the romantic feelings and cheesiness that surrounds Valentine’s Day, I find it disgusting. Valentine’s Day is incredibly cliche. It was created by businesses in hopes of boosting sales and revenue. The romantic aura that exudes from Valentine’s Day festivities is mere…

    Valentine’s Day is not the most interesting holiday in the entire world I would actually argue that it’s one of the worst holidays and I’m not saying that because I’ve never been someone’s valentine before I just think it’s meh.

    Should there be a stricter term limit for politicians? I don’t think so. The average age is 70, and I think that is a decent limit. I would not go for being too strict on the matter, because the older one becomes in their field, the more experienced they are. I think we would all agree we wo…

    Traditions are passed down from one generation to another. Traditions can be not only a family thing, but rather a large event that a community puts together every year. Once one generation is getting older, it is up to them to pass the metaphorical baton on to the next willing person to tak…

    Christmas season is one of my family’s favorite times of the year. All the Christmas festivities, and food especially, are what my family looks forward to. Although we don’t have very many traditions, there are a few we do every year.

    The holiday season is something I look forward to every year with great joy and anticipation. There is an aura surrounding the end of autumn and the beginning of winter that thrills and warms my soul. My holiday traditions are concretely rooted in family time. Thanksgiving always takes place…

    It has been nine months since COVID-19 has rocked the United States. Somehow it got better and then it got way worse. What caused this? What is the solution?

    As an eighteen-year-old, I’ve listened to those who reminisce about their life and share the stories that always capture my attention; however, I’ve never shared my own memories because they’ve always seemed beyond my recollection, until this year.

    With COVID-19 cases at an all-time high, stopping the spread of the virus is at the top of many people’s list of concerns. Obviously, it’s no surprise that more restrictions have been put into place than there were in March or April. However, are these new precautions worth it? The answer is…

    Recently, COVID numbers have been on the rise. Hospitals are filling to the brims, even to the point where they are overflowing into the hallways and having to turn people away. Nursing homes are locking our loved ones up to try and protect them, but in return they are becoming depressed and…

    Gambling, like money, can’t easily be defined as either good or evil. Therefore, because this hobby has both pros and cons, it should be left up to the individual person to decide whether they should engage in this venture or not.
