Everyone claims that Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, but I suggest another place that will make you smile just as much. Splashing water, sunburns and slushies, laughs and giggles, bunkbed whispers, sunshine, long-lasting friendships and endless fun. River Way Ranch Camp is a sleep-away summ...

On November 27, Robert Lewis Dear shot and killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. He did this because he fundamentally disagreed with everything Planned Parenthood stood for. I find what he did sickening. Why would a man feel so passionate about an issue that does not co...

Filed under Entertainment & Technology

A few months ago, I was at the mall and I passed by a very unique store: Hot Topic. This nonconformist paradise always came across as intimidating and a little scary. My friends and I would always walk by very fast and laugh, but deep down, we were all slightly nervous about going in. Finally, I mustered...

Outer space. Darkness. Complete silence. Outside of the earth’s atmosphere is complete solitude. It’s normal to look up and wonder what it would be like to float around in utter silence, in total isolation.
