Girls, do us a favor please and just be yourself

Are girls who wear too much makeup attractive? Do you find it weird when girls come to class and they look like they just rolled out of bed? These are many topic of conversation that goes through a college male’s mind when they see any of these instances occur. I know plenty of girls who […]

Are your 20s the time to be selfish?

Are your 20’s the time to bear down and work, or the time to explore and be happy? Can you do both in your 20’s? Many people say that your 20’s are the time to enjoy life. I agree with that. But to a certain extent. I think that in order to truly enjoy your […]

We need to give a big “thank you” to our parents

We learn a lot in our lives. We learn math and science and history. We take dance classes, read books and train with coaches. Our teachers hand out gold stars that turn into letter grades as we grow up. We give speeches at graduation or honors ceremonies praising our teachers for getting us this far. […]


My big fat expensive wedding

From the time that they are little, young girls grow up dreaming of the perfect wedding. This trend begins by dressing up in a long flowing white dress and chasing the neighborhood boy around begging him to kiss you and telling him that he has to because you are married. Or at least that is […]


Taking a break in life: is it a good idea or not?

Graduation day is quickly approaching. What is one to do now that a window of opportunities has just opened up? Regardless if the path of traveling, continuing education or a career is chosen, with all three, timing is important. When some argue that taking a year or so off is good as a debriefing period, […]


It is time to get all of your goals in check

We live in a society where who we want to be is more celebrated than who we currently are. We are a society that thinks excessively about the future that we already believe our present is in the past. We browse social media and the internet gawking over our favorite celebrities and commenting “body goals,” […]


Professional athletes bringing fame or shame?

Professional athletes and celebrities are a huge part of our culture, but maybe some people just are not supposed to be in the spotlight. Recent events have shown me that some people just cannot handle having fame and fortune. Lamar Odom was a respected athlete and NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers. Where did […]

Aircraft, Rescue Firfighters aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar fight blazing fires during a controlled burn at the burn pit here. ARFF performed controlled burns June 13-14, they perform these burns about four times a year.

Do professional athletes get overpaid?

Being a professional athlete usually means they make hundred of thousands, even millions, of dollars every year for playing their sport. However, many wonder why so much money is being given to people who just play a sport when the people who are serving our country are left feeling underpaid. The side I take on […]


Reaching the semester mid-point: what to change

It is half way through my first semester of sophomore year, and so far it has been a bumpy road. Coming into this semester, I had changed my perspective on how seriously I was going to focus on my grades, sports and the way I live my life. I started to become more organized when it […]


The gym is so a place for a girl

I would not call myself a gym rat. I do not spend nearly enough time in the gym as I should, and I probably could not name more than five types of workouts that include weights. I do go to the gym occasionally and often see fit women who could probably benchpress more weight than […]

Should I stay or should I go?

It is no surprise to people that Cabrini is considered a ‘suitcase school.’ This means that when the weekend comes around, people pack their bags and hit the road back home. I personally have no problem with packing my bag every weekend and heading back home to Philadelphia. Although I have stayed on campus for […]

To protect a drowning flower

I looked in the face of addiction for two years, but it did not matter because I had loved him. I watched him go from playing for his city’s basketball team and working hard the first summer we met to becoming an empty shell who hibernated in his room and always looked at me with […]

Breast cancer is not gender-selective

“Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about one in 1,000,” according to the American Cancer Society. This statistic shows why men are not aware that breast cancer can affect them as well. Although certain risk factors like hormone […]

Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2015-2

Halloween is not just a trick, it is also a treat

I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. Beautiful changing leaves, warm hot chocolate, haunted houses, pumpkin patches, Halloween– what is there not to love? Growing up in Denver, Colo., I have fond memories of Halloween. Every year, I would dress up as a different Disney princess only to trudge […]

Tenured professors can be helpful assets

When I was a freshman in college, I would roam the halls trying to find my professor’s office and pass it three times before I let go of my pride and asked someone for help. As I walked into their office with a plush couch for advising sessions and plaques all over the walls, I […]
