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.

The Enduring Appeal of Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls has been my favorite show since I was 14. I consider myself a bit of a Gilmore Girls connoisseur, as I have watched the series three times and I am currently on my fourth run-through. For those of you who do not know, Gilmore Girls is about the quirky and heartwarming mother-daughter relationship […]

An Honest Immaculate Review

Immaculate, starring Sydney Sweeney (she/her) and directed by Michael Mohan (he/him), was a good movie. That being said, it did not blow my mind. The plot was predictable and the messaging was heavy-handed. However, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it will become the next cult classic, but it is worth the watch. MINOR SPOILERS […]

Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter Is a Triumph

On March 29, Beyoncé (she/her) released her eighth studio album, Cowboy Carter. It is Act II of Beyoncé’s album trilogy that began with her album Renaissance. The album has 27 songs and is 1 hour and 19 minutes long. The album had two lead singles “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages” released the night of […]

JoJo See-Ya Later

It is impossible to describe all of JoJo Siwa’s (she/her) controversies in one article, so to make a long story short, I am very tired of seeing her name in YouTube thumbnails and TikTok captions. While I will not deny that she has done a lot of good with her platform, such as speaking out […]
