With the recent injuries plaguing the Chicago Bulls team and Derrick Rose, it’s no surprise to see him, once again, injure his leg and very well hurt another possible championship year for the team. The day following a prior game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Derrick Rose reported soreness in his leg,...

March is an exciting time, with St. Patrick's Day, Shamrock Shakes, and maybe, possibly spring. It really can't come soon enough. There is a lot of things to look forward to in the next month. But what is on most girls’ minds this month? Prom. More than dresses, shoes, and tickets though, the promposal...

Lately, I’ve been interested in a new hobby that has prompted some serious thinking about not only my health, but the healths of other teenagers. I’ve been taking zero hour for about two years now, and I believe that is what truly catalyzed this new obsession of healthy living and taking care...

Back in the day, curvy women were considered beautiful. In fact, having curves and a little extra meat on your bones was a good thing; it was a symbol of wealth to the public because it meant you had more than enough food. Then, of course, there was the Marilyn Monroe era where women were influenced...

You know, a month ago, I was seriously kidding myself when I said that second semester of my senior year would be easier. I clearly remember studying for finals one night, almost at my breaking point mind you, and reassuring myself that second semester would be relaxing, easy and all about being proud...

It is seemingly impossible to turn on a news channel and watch it without being depressed or nervous. The world news focuses on terrorist attacks, and the local Chicago news seems to report each and every shooting in a gang-ridden neighborhood. While all of this is important, the news channels of today...

I recently watched a video about forming new habits called “Try something new for 30 days”. Initially, I thought, wow, 30 days? That’s so easy. I decided that I wanted to create new habits in January, a time when many people create their new year’s resolutions that will (hopefully) be successful....

There was something lurking on the shelves of my neighborhood Jewel-Osco during early January that caused a series of chills to run along my spine. I cringed as I made my way into the aisle, all blooming with the same color and shape: red hearts. The life-size grinning bear seemed to cast a shadow over...

Traveling to different places and experiencing the cheery atmosphere of Christmas always seems to put me in a grand mood, whether it be in the middle of the no where or Chicago. However, it seems to be that we can get lost in the spirit of the holidays, suffocated by the advertising and marketing of...

I recently thought about getting a part time job; one, because I’d like to have more than $1.75 to my name sometimes, and two, because there is an influx of job openings during the winter season.

Students often forget how easy it is for how something that seems so small can blow up into a catastrophe. With cell phones glued to the fingertips of teenagers nowadays, it is easier than ever to make a poor decision that could affect adolescents in their later life.

A wise person once told me that it was impossible to use Types A, B and C to categorize people (http://www.psych.uncc.edu/). Since then, I have often wondered if seven billion people can be categorized into the categories of Type A, Type B and Type C. Is it truly possible to place such a large and...
