   As we move into the awkward transition of the seasons, it is time to switch out our big, warm sweaters for cute maxi skirts. Many of us struggle with what we’re going to wear during this time because one day it’s warm and the next it’s winter again. I have some ideas that might be a starting point for you to figure o...

When I was younger, I always wanted to be a surgeon, but I was led away because although surgeons save lives and perform miracles, they also deal with some pretty disgusting things. This led me to choose another career in the medical profession, even though I didn’t know that the messy things that surgeons are involved with,...

I’m not sure how all of you feel, but to me this spring semester flew by. As of May 11, I will officially be a junior in college. It seems like just yesterday I parked my car in the back of McHale to be greeted by strangers dressed as sailors and willing to carry all of my belongings to my new home. So enough about my nostalgia...

Three years ago, I never really thought this moment would ever arrive – the moment Let’s Talk Fashion would be ending due to graduation as I start a new, exciting chapter in my life.

As the promise of hot summer days is threatened by the occasional snow flurry, we are left in a cycle of dressing like Eskimos when we leave the house at 7:00 a.m., dying of heat exhaustion around lunch, and then bundling back up after we get our large coffees before night class. This week’s recipe stems from warmer days full...

Let me start off by saying I am far from a soccer expert, far from a die-hard soccer fan, but I am a citizen of the United States. Although the United States isn’t exactly known for it’s soccer, the Americans have qualified for the Olympic Games in every attempt but three. Unfortunately the “futbol” fans in the...

Relaxing with a good movie is just the thing to wind down the end of the year. Between projects, papers, and exams, college students need to find an outlet to keep from burning out. To balance out my busy schedule, I take a ballet class on Fridays to celebrate that I have made it through the week. It allows me to channel frustrations...

Last Monday Peyton Manning picked the Denver Broncos as his next football destination. It was an attractive place for Manning, considering John Elway calls most of the shots in the front office these days. Elway wanted Manning and he wanted him bad.
