Game of Thrones has had a wild season so far. Everything we thought we knew about the characters is now thrown out the window. Truly tragic. Last night's episode was, I would say… blasphemous. My good sis Daenerys literally lost her mind and burned down all of Kings Landing. However, let’s chat...

Game of Thrones has really done it this season. Between the army of the dead and Cersei's reckless ambition's, this season will definitely be the best one yet. The second episode of the season was very interesting. Throughout the entire episode, everyone in Winterfell was preparing for The Great War....

Thus far the creators of Game of Thrones have given us nothing but twists and turns this entire season. Last night's episode is a PRIME example of such. Episode four of the final season of Game of Thrones wasn't exactly suspenseful, but it did grab my attention and make me cry a little bit. In the...

It's spring--the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and college acceptance letters are trickling in. If you're anything like me, you assumed that getting into college was the hard part, so choosing should be easy! Sorry, sister, that's just not how it works. From understanding your acceptance...

The start of the fourth quarter makes students antsy. The thought of the school year ending and summer adventures beginning is almost too much to handle. We lose all motivation to wake up for school and almost all work gets turned in late (if it gets done at all). We just can't get our minds off ...

Game of Thrones fans waited a whole 525 days for the premiere of season 8, aka the very last season. It was not only amazing, but it was...well... yeah, amazing. Like most Game of Thrones fans last night (presumably) I was beyond elated once 9pm hit. After last season's series finale shocker that...

Winter is coming to an end and spring is upon us. The time we’ve all been waiting for... I know I’m not the only one who feels like winter is really draining--mentally, physically, and emotionally. There’s just something about the sun being out that radiates good vibes. Every winter, I’m ...
