Let’s Talk: Let’s talk about Alabama

June 12, 2019 by Katy Weicker, staff writer  
Filed under June 12, 2019, Columns

As the writer of a column about women’s issues, one would think that I’d be sitting at my keyboard with bated breath, fingers feverously clicking across the keys as I express my views on everything going on in the southern states right now.  But in reality, I’ve been dreading writing a column for this issue. […]

First Things First: Struggles for a summer job

June 12, 2019 by Tiegan Suddaby, contributing writer  
Filed under June 12, 2019, Columns

As May wastes away through long nights of watching cooking ASMRs and worrying over when classes are available, June swoops in with the reminder that you don’t have a job. Three months is a long time if you don’t have much of a purpose. But when I’m happily trapped in a cycle of hedonism, I […]

Health with Tess: Sweet slumber and circadian rhythms part 2

June 12, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under June 12, 2019, Columns

Back in the dark ages of last semester, when everything was due and tensions were high, I touched on how sleep helps us concentrate and be more productive, and how poor sleep can impact our immune systems and mental health. Many of these are short-term benefits that compound to help manage long-term health, but they […]

Communication Error: Spilling voices

June 12, 2019 by Nate Downe, contributing writer  
Filed under June 12, 2019, Columns

Jogging at a standstill, layering yourself into position, and dripping into place—not unlike a gelatin mould of yourself. Voices are running wild, and they are running nowhere. Where exactly are you going, voices, and are you not already somewhere you wish to be? Spending time devising ways to spend time isn’t exactly useful right now, […]

Let’s Talk: Summer love

May 15, 2019 by Katy Weicker, staff writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

Like many students, I’m finding my sea legs again after the insanity that was end-of-the-semester mayhem. Finals are done, grades are in, and I’m back in the swing of working full time and having my evenings free from homework—also known as having time to write things that I’m not getting graded on! In addition to […]

First Things First: Picture-perfect notes

May 15, 2019 by Tiegan Suddaby, contributing writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

Have you ever heard of the studyblr or studygram community? It’s a wretched, cursed place that I willingly visit, and you might too. There’s something so clean and perfect about it that makes me so conflicted I decided to write a column—no, a warning—on what it is and why I love it. Simply, it is […]

Communication Error: Parrot juice

May 15, 2019 by Nate Downe, contributing writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

I thought that I saw a parrot; a flock of parrots flying freely here and there—parrots everywhere. Although I am not entirely sure if they were parrots or not. As I stared intensely out of my window I witnessed a colourful figure ascending from one corner of my eye to the other; in a blink […]

Health with Tess: From financial hell to financial health

May 15, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

You know what people never talk about? Financial health. Once upon a time, only a couple of years ago, I had just under $5 and some laundry-card credit to my name. I hadn’t even spent money on fun—it was purely the cost of responsibilities. Not my best moment, but it did inspire (scare?) me into […]

The Chopping Block Chronicles: The socially acceptable drug

April 3, 2019 by Justin Bennett, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

First off, I just want to point out that I am an avid coffee drinker (I write this as I take a sip of my quad espresso), and that the purpose of this article is solely to question our philosophies around substances in general. I was once posed a question in one of my health […]

Health with Tess: Exam season? Sleep season!

April 3, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

Happy exam season! Yeah, I’m rolling my eyes and glaring at me too. We’ve got exams, we’ve got essays, and we’ve got presentations. It’s not really the time of semester that we celebrate; usually, we celebrate surviving it. One thing that will help you get through the upcoming chaos is sleep. Yep, that thing we […]
