Build an armor around your heart, Cause even in the best days, There will always be a darkness lingering in the shadows. Don’t get your hopes up. The higher they are, The quicker and harder they fall. Don’t let your emotions take over your logic, Your past actions may never be outlived D...

April 23, 2019

When the trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us was released last December, the song “I got 5 on it” was tainted forever.

Trigger warning: mental illness, sexual assault The play Spring Awakening was banned on the first night of its original run in 1891. It was put on again, and banned again, in the 1960s.

April 1, 2019

Characterized by a herd of jittery sophomores sporting Bape hoodies and a strong odor of Mango, Mint, or Cucumber, a wild pack of bathroom juulers can be easily identified.  Yet this new phenomenon is anything but innocent.  Urgent bathroom-goers can expect to be delayed by hoards of vaping underclassmen—often as ...
