Good ol’ days

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I feel old. I think it started when Nick at Nite stopped showing "I Love Lucy" and "Bewitched" and began showing "Full House" and "Roseanne". Growing up, Danny Tanner was like a father to me. Where did all the time go? Lately, I have been catching myself saying things like, "Times have changed," or "I remember when gas prices were 98 cents.

Cigarette smoke contains 200 different poisons and 43 of them cause cancer. There is a known chemical in cigarettes called carcinogen that is extremely harmful, however it is ignored because it is in the form of tobacco. If carcinogen were used in any other matter, charges and legal action would most likely be taken.

Problem after problem with ticketing

Why do we have driveways on campus if we cannot park in them? This question has been bothering me almost as much as why there is not enough housing for Cabrini students, but let's not go there. Everyone I know hates the fact that after circling the campus five times and still finding zero spots, their last resort is to park in the driveway and as a result, they get a ticket.

Dissed by teacher, another saves face

I never thought the day would come for a teacher to tell a student that they could not help them. This has been my past experience with a Cabrini teacher. There I was shocked and speechless that the word "no" came out of my teacher's mouth when asked with the simple question, "Can you help me with this assignment?" I have found that in three years at this school, I have had very little problems with the teaching staff.

Main Line nightlife

The Wild Onion is one of the hot spots Cabrini students go to when they want to have a fun time.

Caf food bites

Let's face it, the cafeteria food is horrendous. I thought this year would be different, that somehow I would have adapted to the half cooked noodles and the dark brown chicken, but that has not been the case. I can honestly say that I am afraid of the caf food.

Summer of sequels

With all the rain this summer, what else better than to go to the movies? That is, if you could find a good movie to go see. This summer the movie industry was struggling to come up with original and unique flicks. This was obvious with the release of 14 summer sequels some of which are too lame to even mention.
