First thing I want to say is if you’re white and sensitive, hit that back button. This is not an article you'll want to read. Now with that being said, I’m going to be talking about how I dislike the fact that I’m white and how white people irritate me in general. Before I get into more of the...

People are always making fun of Tyga and Kylie Jenner dating since they have an age difference of seven years. Then he got caught up in a 14-year-old’s DMs. But when the pictures of the 14-year-old were released, I could then tell it was an honest mistake. That girl looked nothing like a young t...

When someone says they’re bilingual, they typically mean they speak two languages. Like in America, it’s most common for someone to speak both Spanish and English. That way, it’s easier for that person to communicate with someone whose first language is different than what is normal...

The rich keep on getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. It is unfair for schools and neighborhoods in nice areas to get all the funding while low-income areas get nothing. I had this debate with my boyfriend’s uncle, that under-privileged schools need the funding and the resources to h...

One would think that coming from the Bay Area, nothing would surprise me at this point. And yet when I came to Chico State three years ago, I was in a total culture shock. I could have sworn I’d seen it all. With San Francisco being my backyard and the country being only a 40-minute drive, I t...

Picking a roommate is always a tough decision. You want to live with someone who meets the same ideas as you: how messy you are, privacy, smoking, pets, etc. You also have to decide whether you want to live with friends or post an ad on Craigslist and chance it with a stranger.

Hurt people, hurt people. That is neither a reason nor excuse to be disrespectful. Just because you were wronged in the past, doesn’t mean you get to wrong somebody else. You know how much it hurts, what it’s like to feel low; you should never treat someone that way just to feel better a...

It seems dark and cold. It’ll feel like no one is around to help you. You almost can’t help yourself. Seems like everything you’ve done doesn’t even matter. You’re in your sibling’s shadow. Being the younger sibling could seem great. There’s no real experiment with parenting, your parents...

Somehow society taught women that having big boobs will be the greatest thing that has ever happened to them. Nearly 300,000 women in America had surgery to enlarge their breasts in 2014. Bigger boobs aren’t exactly what they’re cracked up to be. They cause more problems than good. Are they nice to...

Money can be a stressful thing to talk about. Whether you have a lot of money or not much at all, it can be the main topic of concern. When you’re getting paid, paying bills, buying things for the house, repairing broken things, all center on money. This money stressor is sometimes too much for adu...

Dogs, and animals in general, bring this bundle of happiness that people just can’t deny. When you’re stressed which would you rather see, a litter of puppies or a baby? I bet it would be the puppies. See, I think animals are a form of therapy that is like no other. Dogs are being used now ...
