For anyone who is struggling this semester – this is for you. I know you may feel tired or lost. It happens to the best of us. Actually, it happens to all of us at least once in our lives. You have no idea how to fix things and that’s okay. No one has all […]

Valentine’s Day: A Few Things You May Have Missed

With Valentine’s Day here, I thought I would discuss some cliche details that most people never bring up. The most important detail to mention is that chocolate is half-off the day after Valentine’s Day. I repeat:  CHOCOLATE IS HALF-OFF.

First, I have to mention that even though I do not say it often, I love you guys! You make my day so much brighter and weirder. And most importantly, you make Gannon home. From making tea to screeching velociraptor noises at each other from across the room, I would never change us for the […]

New Year, Same Me

How many of you took the time to think of a New Year’s resolution? How many of you abandoned that resolution a month after making it? A week? A day? The point is that society empathizes “New Year, New Me,” but how long does that really last? A more accurate term society should coin is […]

Technology: Life Enhancing or Inhibiting? Probably Both.

Evolution is a funny thing. It can change things rapidly – or so slowly – that you don’t even realize it. Technology is a lot like evolution. It can swing one of two ways, either it can rapidly progress or it can move at turtle speeds. Cellphones fall under the category of rapid. Over the […]

As Thanksgiving break is quickly approaching, I would like to take a moment and mention what I am most thankful for. I am thankful for all the exams I have had, not only this week, but all of next week as well. I am thankful for my family for going on vacation without me. Lastly, […]

My life as a Roman Emperor

In this week’s edition of REDACTED, I talk about a time I was (read as: performed as) a Roman Emperor and the real-life application of Laban movement in everyday life! Acting has a lot of basis in real life, and application in a variety of industries. And yes, this photo is of me as Tiberius: […]

Keep On Keepin’ On: I am crazy

I am crazy. Here I am, sitting at my computer, listening to Weezer and eating crackers. If I were on exhibit right now, the tour guide would say something along the lines of, “And right here, ladies and gentlemen, we have a young college student in her natural habitat. It’s a rare occasion to see […]
