Artful Ruckus: Thanksgiving is a bunch of stuffing

Waking up to the smell of meat and potatoes has to be every American’s dream. I guess I’m truly just unpatriotic because I don’t like — no, I despise — Thanksgiving. It’s just one more day until Christmas, honestly. It just so happens we celebrate it by overeating, napping and watching TV surrounded by our relatives we usually can’t wait to kick out of the house. Thanksgiving just isn’t that great. And before you attack me, just listen.

Loud and Clear: Temporarily 21

When Forever 21 announced it was filing for bankruptcy, my immediate thought was, “Well, I guess they were only Temporarily 21.” After I laughed at my own joke, however, I realized just how hard it was going to be for me to buy clothes from here on out.

Brutally Honest: Therapy reimagined

That moment when the filler music before a show stops, and you know it’s show time. The venue lights go down, the screams rise, the intro music to the first song begins … and there they are: one of your favorite artists, if not your favorite, in the flesh. The artist or band that has lifted your spirits, quenched your bad moods and had you bopping from day one is directly in front of you.

The Gaggle: Leaf me alone

Inner conflict. We all have it. For some, it’s as simple as whether or not to help an elderly person across the street. For me, though, inner conflict stems from something that keeps me up at night: Do I actually like iceberg lettuce?

Brutally Honest: Mr. President is at it again. Shocker.

President Trump always takes to Twitter to express his extreme dismay with any situation, and this impeachment inquiry makes this rather apparent. This is not how any elected official, let alone the president, should act. It proves how childish, uninformed and unprofessional he really is.
