Luck is a matter of favorable or unfavorable results in life. But is luck a superstitious force or a matter of balance in the universe? Do we make our own luck or does it come to us randomly if we happen to be in the right place at the right time? The world may never know. I think the positivity we...

Okay yes, I’m a single pringle, but I also think it’s great when people find someone to share all their time with. Of course, I want my Cinderella happily-ever-after ending too! For heaven’s sake, I am a Disney Princess at heart. However, I’m willing to wait for it and just bring joy to my own...

Love. It seems stupid to have an entire day dedicated to it, but here we are. There are pressures all around us to be cute and romantic. And if we don’t face those pressures because of a lack of someone special, the idea of being sad and lonely on Valentine’s Day surrounds us. Being sweet and rom...

Need to talk to a friend? Why wait until class to see them? Just send them a direct message. Can’t wait for the Ugg boots you ordered to come in? Use same day delivery. Need a good cake?
