I've always thought myself a rather confident person, aware of my own value. That was until I applied to be a counselor at a summer camp. I had previously been a camper here before my sophomore year. It was called Camp Jump Start or CJS and the main focus was to help kids struggling with body image....

   There is nothing better than getting together with your estranged family, accidentally finding your single aunt crying in the bathroom about her last boyfriend and then taking a bite out of the world’s driest piece of turkey.

   As a child, when I walked into my Uncle Donnie’s house on Thanksgiving Day, I would breeze past the relatives whom I hadn’t seen in months and go straight for the dessert table.

   As the season of spooks approaches, I have come to the conclusion that ghouls and ghosts are not the only scare waiting in the night for me. One of the most frightening things is the debate about whether or not I should be allowed to exercise my right to protest. I don’t feel like whether I stand...

   If I didn’t have a pun-tastic Instagram caption or if a certain someone didn’t see my Snapchat story, I used to go crazy with paranoia. I have a feeling that I am not alone on this, either. I probably sound like a grandma, using the “teenagers these days” speech, but I feel as though we spend way ...

  The Chiefs are not my number one team (let’s go Chicago), but they are my number two. So I had to cheer for them when they played the Patriots, who I despise almost as much as the Packers. The Chiefs had a great comeback, starting the second half down 27-21.    As I watched the game, I saw how ...
