Movies now-a-days are not as good as they used to be. You may hear your parents or some older person with an unimportant opinion say it, but here, you are going to get it from me; a living, breathing teenager who hates to see a bad movie. First things first, this summer has been the worst movie release...

As the new school year begins each student is worried about their own school related problems.

Can we please stop glorifying abusive people/relationships in entertainment? Especially in young adult subject matter? Geez, in real life, if some creep like Edward Cullen snuck into someones room to watch them sleep, they wouldn't find it charming or intriguing they would call the police and dreamy...

If you are like me, then you are already stressing. It is not even a month into summer but all I can think about is that this is my last summer at home before I graduate. I am planning on attending college in the fall of 2017, and I just keep thinking about everything that needs to be done to apply to...

I attended the Donald J. Trump rally in The Woodlands, Texas and I realized a few things about the man who very well might be the next President. This is what I thought about He will say anything to get your vote. I understand that this can be said about many if not all politicians, but I don't think...

I love the people who are out to destroy me because it reminds me that maybe that is what I deserve. I believe that sometimes we need to go through pain in order for our bodies to transgress physically and mentally. And how crazy is that? How crazy is it that life has also taught me that. My...

Okay yeah, junior year is kind of the gigantic ball of stress and pre-senioritis that everyone said it was going to be. At the beginning of the year I thought 'Oh, it can't be THAT bad, can it?'. Newsflash. It is. If you're very academically-dedicated like me, you'll probably be taking higher-level courses ...

Filed under Opinions

Probably the most annoying thing someone can say to me is "horse-back riding is not a sport." People have some nerve to say something like that to a horse person. Saying that "horse-back riding isn't a sport" is so incredibly rude. In our sport, we ride on top of a 1200 pound animal that can not speak...

I took a campus visit to the University of Texas in Austin in a desperate attempt to narrow my search of prospective trains into a successful future. After this visit, I can certainly say that the University of Texas is certainly a forerunner right now in that search. From what I learned from an extremely...

Alright people, I've got a few things to say. People stop being so uptight and take a joke. Today, I played a joke where I "borrowed" their Letterman jacket for the day until I gave it back to him in the one class we have together. I swear it was like I was wearing a Ranch jacket. First of all, the...
