Social media is a huge part of our lives, and it can often be beneficial in communicating with others, however social media can also put a strain on people in relationships.
It is not uncommon to be in a relationship and become jealous when you see other couples posting about one another and how in love they are all the time. You may even start to wonder why your significant other doesn’t care enough to declare his/her love for you via Facebook or Instagram. I remember feeling this way with my boyfriend in high school, and now I’m sitting here thinking about how stupid it was. Lack of social media presence does not equal a lack of love. Some people just aren’t into doing those sort of things, and that can even be a good thing. Read More

Two events mark the beginning of the end of the academic session, the Student Scholar Showcase and the Academic Awards Banquet. This year they both occurred last week, the former on Wednesday and the latter on Friday. A month from now we shall be in the midst of graduation weekend; where does the time go?
Last week both students and faculty were able to enjoy the 18th annual Student Scholar Showcase because there were no classes. Those persons who were responsible for organizing this wonderful activity have my sincere admiration. However, this experience reminds me of what I learned of a similar annual affair which occurred before I entered Lynchburg College. Read More

Many associate Friday the 13th with bad luck and doom. April is bringing the first Friday the 13th of the year, and it might be time to start them out right.
