Today's society has imprinted in young adults' minds that college equals success and if they don't go to college, they will not be happy. This mindset itself is just plain dumb. College isn't for everyone. Robert Reich, from Huffington Post, says "They feel compelled to go to college because they’v...

Roughly 44 thousand Americans die of suicide a year and I doubt any of them were trying to get revenge. Yet that is exactly what Hannah Baker, the main antagonist of the story, did while committing the one thing she cannot undo, suicide. The tapes left behind even started to deteriorate at Clay Jensen's,...

"Safe and Sober Week" was ineffective and a complete joke because students are going to forget everything they "learned" and they most likely didn't care. Sure, they get informed about the dangers and consequences that follow if they make poor choices when it comes to drinking but it's not going to completely...

How do parents and children deal with the aftermath of a school shooting? How would you send your child back to that school? Personally, I wouldn't because of the fear that my child would be suffering, along with myself. I would also send my child to some sort of counseling to get through the traumatizing...

Whether it's sexual assault, or the CEO of Uber not making the right decisions, they seem to always be getting bad publicity. I am starting to think that the declining reputation is just for publicity because of how often they are portrayed negatively, since these days the only way you can get any attention...

The Flint water crisis has been going on since 2014, when the Flint river became the only water source in Michigan. Over a year ago, both Michigan and the federal government declared a state of emergency when the water started to poison local children due to lead. It's been years and our government...

To celebrate National Women's Day, Snapchat honored Marie Curie by adding a filter dedicated to her makeup. Funnily enough, Marie was famous for being a physicist whom won a Nobel Piece Prize, not for caking her face in Mac cosmetics. People are upset with this ridiculousness, and they have every...

Controversy exploded over Mack Beggs, a 17 year old transgender male, whom won the state wrestling championship in the female division getting rejected from the male division. According to Texas law, whatever your birth certificate says, determines your legal sexual orientation. I think if the person...

Donald Trump's hypocritical actions have taken away transgender rights. In this recent week President Donald Trump has revoked the restroom rights of transgendered students in public schools. Not only has this act infringed rights of these students, but it has striped them of their right to identify...

Everyone has their own beliefs. It's one to want to share them, but it's another to blatantly force someone to see them. In my opinion, it's patronizing and definitely not "freedom of religion," which these extremists use as an excuse. As Americans, we have religious freedom, we are guaranteed that...

Should parents read their child's text or monitor their online activity? This question has been floating around those parent blog sites and the answer is fairly obvious in my opinion: no, you shouldn't spy on your kids. There is this little thing called communication that is very useful if you're wor...

Many citizens are outraged to hear that Trump nominated Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, due to her lack of experience. I believe this is a good call on Trump's part. Even though DeVos doesn't have any experience in public education, she has an outsider's point of view and quite a few good ideas. In...
