In the past year, there has been a lot of tension between music group Fifth Harmony and former band-member Camila Cabello, due to her leaving the group to pursue a solo-career. At the start of Cabello's solo career, she did many collaborations, such as the popular remix of a song, "Bad Things," with...

My family, my boyfriend and I decided to go to KiTARO in O'Fallon for my 16th birthday dinner. It turned out to be not so sweet. It was more like a dark bar full of TVs playing football games, and men donning baseball caps and jeering for their teams. We felt a little overdressed, as my mom and I...

As an avid tea and caffeine lover, I can safely say that I know a bit about teas. My personal favorite would be the full-bodied flavor of black tea. One famous black tea is the English/British Breakfast tea. It's a lovely tea and a traditional Black tea, but it's not nearly as good the Irish Breakfast. I...

I was first introduced to Phil Kline’s music, ironically enough, through an environmental science project. We were doing a project on an endangered species, and I just so happened to pick Bachman's Warbler, a species of little yellow birds. It’s not officially extinct yet, but the creature’s las...

A little over a month ago, Apple released iOS 11 to the public. With complaints about the new update draining battery life, I’m here to set the record straight. Its flaws are outweighed by its improvements. There are plenty of changes with the iOS 11 software, but I’m going to mention only a...

The Snowman, released October 20, 2017, seemed to be another one of those cheesy horror movies. It was set in Oslo, Norway, where it always snows. So far, it has earned $22.7 million, which doesn't even compare to movies like It and Dunkirk. Directed by Tomas Alfredson, it starts off with a young...

Beginning this year, the Boy Scouts of America are allowing females to join the organization. I am fully in support of this decision. I remember when I was younger, I would always hear about the adventurous and fun activities and camping trips the Boy Scouts would go on. I was so envious because I...

"Terrorist! ISIL sympathizer! Go back to your own country!" I sat at my desk, shell-shocked. How could such accusations come out of someone's mouth? In my seventeen years of living in the United States, I had never encountered such vile words, until now. My beautiful brown skin had never warranted...

Three weeks ago my mom, grandma and I took a weekend trip to Branson, MO, a quaint tourist town two hours away from Wildwood. It might seem like a lengthy drive, but the trip is well worth it, if you have the right mindset going in. All of Branson’s attractions are a little outdated, but show off a kind of charm ...
