What’s that you hear—a rumbling tummy perchance? Well, my friend, let us try to amend that problem frugally. Prom is around the corner, and we all know how expensive that whole shebang is: dresses, tickets, tuxedo rentals, you name it! Curbing your diet inexpensively is a way to save money here and there, and the [...]
‘Tis the season for creative askings, scattered rose petals and prom dress hunting. For most, prom invokes a sense of excitement and anticipation. And why not—it’s a classic American tradition. But as many of us prom veterans know, there’s quite a bit of prom-a-drama that comes with the whole shebang; and we haven’t even gotten [...]

As an American teenager, swearing isn’t a question of morality, but rather a way of life. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve dropped an F-bomb or used a certain variation of the word poop. These words are practically unnoticeable to the teenage ear, but does this make it any better?

It’s a Friday night, and I find myself on the prowl for vampires, werewolves and other mystical creatures of the night at the Vampire Masquerade. Why, you may ask? Well, that’s what I asked myself too that night.
