The Dell. It can wear you down.

Yes, the Cedar Dell community on this campus. It's a great place to live on campus – a step forward to living with friends, in a house on your own. A fun place to be to hang out, and one of the loudest places on the weekends – which some people associate with fun.

Yoga has to be for white people since it's only offered in nice areas, and costs a lot of money right?

A lot of people think, sadly, that yoga is for white, rich and snobby men and women. This is where the whole "yoga world" can come into mix with class divisions and how stuff is geared towards certain races, classes and even genders. In a recent study shown on www.Netwells.com, 34.8% of African Americans have either tried or are currently enrolled in yoga classes daily.

Is a degree worth anything if you can't create a career?

Higher education school systems face constant scrutiny, having to defend their requirements and teaching methods. However, it seems that many still disregard a key element: providing students with social skills that translate to their careers.

As college students, we are bombarded with advertisements every single day in more ways than you could imagine.

This is apparent at university campuses across this nation and in most countries that have the same form of capitalistic society. The advertising is so well placed, and so easily visible, that it's almost just instinct to see it and interpret it as you go along.

If you go around and ask which television news channel is the most biased, most likely you'll get an array of different answers.

Many people accuse MSNBC of broadcasting news that mainly advocates for liberal ideals and standpoints. They say that this station is heavy on opinion and doesn't do a well enough job reporting both sides.

Our nation is facing a zombie infection and it's spreading quickly.

Well, in pop-culture it is anyway.

"The next time someone says you're not a good singer say: 'F*** you'," says Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters on the topic of TV talent shows such as American Idol and The X Factor.

According to NME, Grohl "claims that many contestants are judged far too harshly by judges that are not musically talented."

UMass Amherst recently implemented a campus-wide rule stating that the use of tobacco on campus is prohibited. This new 'law' will be implemented in Fall 2013. Most of us recognize that this will eventually trickle down to UMass Dartmouth, as we are a part of the same schooling system, but I personally think this is a bad move on their part.

I know that the seasons have changed since the beginning of time, when the first blade of grass broke through the Earth's soil and the first song sung by a red robin. These are all the telling signs that warm weather is near.

The springtime shine we've all been waiting for is inevitably about to come. But this year I really needed to see for myself that an actual sign of spring was on its way. After a long, cold, and snowy winter, it seemed like it was never going to end. Unlike last winter, where I only had to shovel less than five times, this winter kept the snow coming. Even during our annual Spring Break, those of us who were in the Caribbean Islands, or Aruba as I was, were having a great time until we had heard of the terrible news that, when we would be returning home, we would be returning to more snow.

Imagine you're giving a speech.

You're a little bit nervous because it's a speech for a scholarship luncheon. Everyone looks really important, and your friend is taping it on her iPhone. You know exactly what you're supposed to say; you have everything on index cards.
