For a while I thought that I wanted kids, but lately it seems that no one is holding back any punches when talk...

I dislike responsibility. Traditionally, I have done my best to shirk it wherever I can. It's scary and I've concluded that I would be much better off without it. It's quite unfortunate for me to report that at this point in time, given my status as a normal person who was not born with a trust fund, it's ...

In college, trap games don't just apply to sports. The weeks leading up to spring break are easy to overlook with the promise of a week off hovering on the horizon. I'm a chief offender. It's hard not to take my foot off the gas pedal when I see there's only a week until the break and coast into it. Like p...

Spring break is fast approaching and in the spirit of the season, I've been in touch with various friends who don't go to Chico about plans for everyone's week off. There's just one problem: no one has the same week off. Between private colleges, University of California schools, and State Universit...
