Most of us have dealt with heartbreak before. Personally, I think it hurts worse than any physical pain one can endure. I’ve broken a bone, pulled muscles, sprained limbs and so on. A heart ache, though, is unlike any other affliction. It’s a long and complicated healing process that varies from person to person. So, how do you get past a broken heart? The answer is that...

For sports fans, spring training is in full swing with opening day right around the corner, the much-anticipated NFL draft is upon us and both the NBA and NHL are gearing up for the playoff push. March and April may be among the most exciting times for sports fans. Dozens of teams...

With the increase of technology and social media it’s very easy to stay in constant communication with anyone, anywhere and at any time. However, there are those that abuse this luxury. As a young woman, I like the feeling of being pursued by a young man who, for whatever the reason, has seen some sort of interest in what I have to offer.  It’s flattering. But there...

Whether students are currently on strict diets or are working out as if they were planning to compete in Rio for the 2016 Olympics, we are all getting ready for our one and only free week in March: spring break. Can you believe that spring break is less than a few weeks away? For many, spring break is the peak of the spring semester, a short break that gives students the chanc...

Captains Corner: What the Media Means to Me

Sometimes, I like to poke a sleeping bear with a stick. That is a metaphor. I would never, ever, actually do that. I have no desire to ever be within arms reach of an actual bear with actual teeth. But I use this metaphor because I am not always satisfied with the status quo, and I am not always satisfied with things trundling along at their own pace. I also get really bored...

Women have always taken a backseat to men. I’m not saying it's right; I’m just stating that it happens. It’s the way things have gone for quite some time. Whether it was the right to vote, jobs or even something as simple as sports, women have not always come first. In today’s world, it’s even more evident in the realm of athletics. Danica Patrick of the NASCAR Sprint...

Love. We all want to feel it, know it and have it forever and ever, amen.  But what is love? How do you know when you love someone? Is it possible to truly love someone, especially at our age? These are a couple of the more common questions that are asked by our peers. And the thing is, these are completely natural inquiries to have. That’s where I come in. As a 20...

When you work and study hard, it is nice to receive recognition for your accomplishments. It’s also nice to receive helpful advice every now and again. However, it is not nice to have your email regularly bombarded by “helpful” tips, claiming to be “what the best college students do.” Excuse me. “What the best college students do!” Can’t forget that exclamation...

“What am I going to wear today?” The infamous question that goes through our minds every morning has never been more important than on the day of an interview. I hope this isn’t news for anyone, how vital a first impression is during an interview. No matter what the interview is for, fashion code is essential. Even if you are not a fashion addict, your whole percept...

The day of love, Valentine's Day, is once again upon us. I can honestly say I have no idea what the history of this day is, what the real purpose of this day is or why it means so much to people all over the world. Maybe I am too cynical for a young person. Maybe I have a strong belief in being spontaneous and celebrating love any time of the year. Maybe I just do not see ...

Immediate improvement following a 2-14 season is a lot easier said than done. Sure, all you have to do is win three games this time around but the fact of the matter is it’s just not that easy. So what changes need to be made to begin the overhaul of the atrocity that was the Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 season? For starters, the Jags have finally parted ways with General Manager...

“I have no idea what I want to talk about today, so I’m just going to start typing until an idea hits me….nothing……nope….still nothing. Aggggggggggggggggggg.” That is the first draft of my column for this week. I typed that Friday, Feb. 1, trying to get a head start on my work for this week. I managed to get about 10 percent of my work done that I had planned ...
