All year, every year I hear one major topic of complaint: parking. This topic always brings a few thoughts to my mind. According to the Quick Facts page on the CWU website, we have over 11,000 students. I have no clue the amount of faculty and staff we have on campus, but I am sure it’s a fair a...

Over the past week, I’ve sat back rather quietly and watched as everyone and their mom voiced an opinion on the recent U.S. military military action in Syria. For those of you who don’t know, or don’t understand what has occurred, on April 6, U.S. Navy destroyers in the Eastern Mediterranean...

Filed under Opinion

The 59th annual Grammys took place Sunday night and the ceremony left me thinking about the way we all appreciate music.

I am the personification of everything that’s wrong with this country. I am an overweight, heterosexual, cis-gendered, white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. I could be the poster child for Donald Trump’s campaign; though I guess now I should say his presidency. Yet I cannot find the right words...

I don’t even know where to start, what even is this election anymore? I’ve been busy lately, so I haven’t been following politics as closely as I should. So, when my newsfeed began to fill up with people complaining about the latest thing Donald Trump said and how offensive it was, I didn’t care....
