Yik Yak


Apps just keep getting better and better. Yik Yak is a new app available for Apple and Android users. This app is a live feed showing recent posts from people in a 10 mile radius. So what? It’s all anonymous. People can comment and like or unlike the post. Bridgewater State University just got a little weirder.




Thank God it’s..Thursday? Yes, you heard it right, TGIT is the new TGIF (and the weekly trending topic on Twitter). ABC has made us love Thursdays over Fridays, but why? Shonda Rhimes, that’s why. Who is Shonda Rhimes, you may ask? Just the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and the new hit show How To Get Away With Murder. Also, that is the lineup for the new ABC Thursdays. If you haven’t seen Grey’s Anatomy or Scandal, go home and binge watch them on Netflix now. I guarantee you that you will not be going out on a Thursday anymore, and will never use the word “Thirsty Thursday” again.


Apple Picking


‘Tis the season for apple crisp, apple cider and apple pie. Get festive by being with your friends and going apple picking! Nothing says pie without fresh apples from a local orchard. C.N Smith Farm in East Bridgewater has an orchard filled with apple trees for the public to pick. Go to their website at cnsmithfarminc.com.




Fall is a huge fashion season. But who wants to look decent and wake up ten minutes earlier to change their pants? Now there’s a way to be comfortable and fashionable without trying! Flannels are a huge fashion statement for fall and yet so comfortable you probably wore it to bed the night before (acceptable). Wearing it over a cute top or sporting an oversize one with leggings, so effortless. Most people can find a flannel in their closets and while searching through your boyfriend’s drawers for another sweatshirt to hoard. Now you can’t make an excuse on why you didn’t have anything else to wear besides your black Northface.


Celebrity Heartbreaks


As the weather gets colder, so do people’s hearts. This past week was full on breakups that even I can’t handle. Let’s start with Amber Rose and Wiz Kalifa divorcing only one year after their wedding and a year and a half after their son was born. Rumors of the two cheating seems like it got the best of them. Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo have called off their relationship because there was “pressure to get married.” Jason went “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” explaining that the fighting was getting out of hand, so they had to call it quits. Honey Boo Boo’s parents, Mama June and Sugar Bear, also stated that they will be getting a divorce this week. June reportedly found that Sugar Bear was patrolling online dating websites, and then was seeing riding a bull at a girl’s 21st birthday party, TMZ reports. Let the tears flow.

Anime Starter Pack

Anime is a Japanese style of television and film created by hand-drawn or computer art. I started watching anime when I was 10 years old and the first one I saw was Yu-GI-OH on Cartoon Network. I fell in love with anime right then and there have continued to feel that love ever since. I […]

Hometown Highlights

From healthcare workers on the frontline, to the people sewing hundreds of face masks by hand, community members are coming together in various ways to help one another, spread positivity and maintain some shred of normalcy.

The Visibility of One’s “Ghost”

As COVID-19 continues to produce near empty streets across the country, or at least for safety’s sake one would hope so, one B.S.U. alum has kept pages filled with her poetry. These pages have come together to form the book Ghost of a Girl, now available for all to read. Amber Miller, who graduated from […]
