It’s about to be that time of year: Christmas. The bells are ringing and all the lights are out on display. One thing that everyone should be focused on this Christmas is decorating their houses. I know that decorating your house and putting up all the lights is a lot of work, and everyone rea...

If you go outside and look around at all the buildings in Cypress, you will notice one thing: they are kind of ugly. Houston as a city, by extent, is simply a city that put function over form in terms of its architecture. It’s a very practical city, but this means that there just isn’t much beauty...

In this day in age, parents can be heard ranting about how awful their children's teachers are and how unreliable public schools can be. Although not all modern situations are ideal and can be difficult, parents should be present in their child's education by preparing him or her for a classroom envi...

 Having a job where I feel rewarded and truly enjoy working, even if it has low pay, is more important to me than having a college degree and good pay if I’m going to hate every day I work.   I have an opinion about how careers affect my happiness, and I don’t understand why whenever I tell so...

Let's be real. We all hate the new Snapchat update. It has a lot of adjectives: ugly, inefficient, disgraceful, a waste of time and space on my phone, unnecessary, a true example of a horrible app update and last but not least, it is a failure. First of all, I did not consent to updating Snapchat....

(SPOILERS AHEAD) As a lover of horror movies and books and scary and true crime stories, when I found out that a T.V. show based on a story by Stephen King was going to be released, I knew I had to watch it. I am the type of person, though, that likes to read the books before I watch a movie or show,...

Let's talk feminism, y'all. Because of who our president is, and all of the sexual harassment being covered in the news, I find this topic really important. What is feminism exactly? Due to its name, there's a common misconception that feminism is only about women. Although the empowerment of women is focu...

One of the most emotionally devastating things in the world is having a best friend who is suicidal. It's so hard to process the fact that someone you're so close to, someone you've known for maybe a few months or for many years, can be gone in the blink of an eye by their own hand. Going to them and...

All my life I’ve heard one question more times than I care to admit, “Hey, are you okay?” When I say I’m fine it’s always the same response, “You don't look okay.” There’s a very simple reason as to why I don't look okay, and it's called genetics. I actually inherited this stern looking...
