Fortnite coaches: ridiculous and just why. Ah video games, one of the favorite pass times of the last few generations.  It is amazing how far they have come in such a short period of time. We started out with computer games and going to arcades, then in the 90’s we transitioned into the era of Read More

Well everyone, it is that time of year again. Break out the scary music, costumes and evil laughter because it is everyone’s favorite holiday, Halloween!

4 weeks ago Ashley Kline Comments Off on Pretty or promiscuous?
Halloween is a time for scary movies, candy, and costumes (which are my personal favorite part of the holiday). As kids, boys and girls typically dress up on Halloween for the purpose of trick-or-treating.

We live in a world full of hypocrisy and double standards. Besides the misogyny and blatant hatred against many marginalized groups, I’d like to turn focus to the marijuana industry. We love a good capitalist takeover here in America. Back in November 2012, Colorado and Washington state became the first states to legalize the recreational Read More
