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.

Artful Ruckus: Jeff Bezos isn’t the bad guy

Local businesses and chains are closing, and a lot of the blame is aimed at one company: Amazon. Big chain retailers like Macy's and even Walmart are closing hundreds of stores because they just can’t compete. Just because these businesses are shutting down, it does not mean Amazon will take over the world. But even if it did, I don’t think that’d be bad because Amazon provides so much to its customers.

Kennedi’s Kaleidoscope: The future is vegan … sorta

I do not care that you are not a vegan. When I tell you I am vegan, I am not telling you because I want to convert you or force my dietary decision onto you. Frankly, I do not care if you eat meat. It’s the amount of meat that bothers me, and honestly, it should bother you too.

Blake’s Beats: Muncie happy places

I’d like to highlight some of the places here in Muncie that have become beacons of hope and cliched “Happy Places” for me. Check them out! See what they do for you, maybe they’ll become your happy place too.

Jimbo-laya: Who feels homesick already? Not me.

Going away to college can be a challenge for a lot of people for any number of reasons.I thought within the first week I got here I would feel homesick. I thought I would be brooding, calling my mom constantly and in such a slump. But to my surprise, I’m having a great time so far. I know I’ll feel homesick at some point, and it could sneak up on me at any moment, but I feel much more confident in my situation here than I feel other people are.
