Ode to the Campus Bikers

A few days ago I sat with my friends in University Park, waiting for the solar eclipse to (somewhat) knock my socks off, when all of a sudden there they were. We all know them. That group of middle school kids that ride around campus on their bikes, acting all tough with their wheelies.  I […]

Dear Reader (Foolish Edition)

For all you people at BSU, I wanted to dedicate this one for you. Not like you’d see it anyways. Do any of y’all even read the paper?  I mean, I guess I’m not expecting you all to wake up at the ass crack of dawn just to read the paper with a cup of […]

Ode to Schedule Making

Ever contemplated your major? No? Well, now is a fantastic time to do so! That’s right, it’s time to pick classes for next semester and I could not feel more anxious! Don’t get me wrong, picking out schedules can be so fun for people like me who like to micromanage stuff. Like hello? We can […]

All the Love for One Love

After growing up listening to his music, I was absolutely thrilled to hear that Bob Marley was going to hit the big screen. Director Reinaldo Marcus Green (he/him) adapted a film based on Marley’s life that traces of journey of how he became the king of reggae music worldwide. If I were to end the […]

Ode to Freedom

Let’s address the undertone some readers might have regarding my title. This is not to praise the “freedoms” that this country is providing for citizens, but to criticize the limitations to these freedoms.  What is going on in this country right now? I’m talking about Alabama. You know, whose state Supreme Court just ruled that […]

Ode to Maya Hawke

I recently stumbled across my “Ode to Valentine’s Day” from this time last year. Oh boy. I genuinely laughed. No, not because I find myself funny, but because when you learn more about yourself, it makes looking back on your past-self that much more cringeworthy. I wrote in the Ode, “I’m literally the most non-girlfriend […]

Ode to BSU’s In’s and Out’s

Welcome back Bears! I hope everyone had a great break, but now that we’re all back there’s something important we need to discuss. Let me set the scene—it’s a Wednesday night at 9:00 P.M. I just returned to campus, and as I went to park in a silly little Weygand spot, there was nothing. Which […]

Ode to Decision Making

I have this problem where I quickly make decisions that don’t always work out for the best. I’d like to think of myself as a cool, calm, and collected person who partakes in rational decision making, but if I’m being completely honest, that’s not entirely true. I have this mindset where I think that spur […]

Saltburn: A Provocative and Unnerving Masterpiece

I can honestly say that Saltburn is one of the most bizarre films I have ever watched, and I don’t know if I loved it or hated it.  Let me start off by talking about what was appealing about this movie. For starters, the cinematography was phenomenal. Watching the movie felt like watching artwork move, […]
