You don’t need that much toilet paper

Erin Seaton, Design Editor

March 26, 2020

It’s interesting to think that we’re currently living in a time that high school students will likely write about in their AP World History DBQs 25 years from now. COVID-19, more commonly known as coronavirus, has been spreading worldwide for nearly four months now. In a such a short time, it has infected over 423,000 people worldwide and claimed the lives of nearly...

It seems like around every corner of social media, there's a new article or update talking about...

March 5, 2020

2020 is certainly an important year. Why so? It’s not just because Tokyo is scheduled to host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games or because I’m finally turning 21. This year, current president Donald Trump is up for re-election against a yet-to-be-determined Democratic candidate. At the moment, there are currently five Democrats remaining in the race for candidacy – Bernie...

My Two Cents: Don’t worry

March 5, 2020

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— As the saying goes, "Worrying is like riding a rocking horse. It keeps you busy, but it gets you nowhere." Believe me, I know it's easier said than done. When you have an exam or project, it can be stressful. Sometimes, you can't help but to worry. And then the test comes and goes, and you're left still worrying. You wonder if you studied enough. ...

What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do

Erin Seaton, Design Editor

February 20, 2020

I think we’ve all pretty much reached this point in our college lives, or we’re pretty close to it. You know, that point when every day you worry and fret about what you’re going to do after you graduate? Oh yeah. You just love that feeling, don’t you? I still have a year until I graduate but I already feel the impending doom of what I’m going to do after graduation....

My Two Cents: Just show up

Hannah Murray, Editor-in-Chief

February 20, 2020

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— As the quote attributed to Woody Allen goes, "Showing up is 80 percent of life." If there is one thing I have learned in my years at college, it is just that. To be successful in your college career, or in any venture, you need to show up. And no, I don't mean just showing up to class, although that is a big part of it. By "showing up," I mean j...

Under the Microscope: Kiss and tell

Hannah Murray

May 24, 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— It's the peak of every good romantic movie. It's the subject of songs and poems and art. But what is it about a kiss that makes it worth all of the fuss? When you think about it, kissing is a pretty strange concept, isn't it? You literally press your face against another person's face and it feels nice, for some reason. If you've ever wondered...

Under the microscope: The science of goosebumps

Hannah Murray

April 9, 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— If you've felt a slight chill on the back of your neck, chances are you've fell victim to the reflex known as kutis ansterina, better known as goosebumps.
