It’s sweet and creamy and guaranteed to warm you after a freezing trek through the snowy wilderness. A lot of places even make specialty flavored hot chocolate such as caramel or peppermint! ...

North Allegheny is infamous for a calamitously competitive college culture; peers turn on peers for top spots -- acting smarter, better, and more intelligent than what is the truth and hiding failures when rejection letters arrive.  Our halls are filled with pressure, emanating from classmates, teac...

Let's get one thing straight right off the bat: I love Christmas. In fact, I'm pretty sure most people that have the slightest shred of sanity have a special place in their heart for gingerbread, stockings, and everything else merry. However, I will not deny the stress that accompanies the holidays...

Last week, my family celebrated Hanukkah, but unlike the most of the NASH Jewish community, my celebration will continue throughout the month. My family is half-Jewish and half-Catholic, so we observe both religions and their holidays. In between concerts, work, and other commitments, my famil...

Most students spend the late night and early morning hours sleeping, studying, or at least trying to do either of those things. However, a select few, including myself, prefer to use our time popping popcorn, grabbing a blanket, and settling in for 11:35, when late-night hosts take over the otherwise b...

This holiday season, I traveled to the dollar store to find out whether $1 holiday-themed items were buys or byes. Mini Christmas trees: BUY! These are about a foot tall, with shiny trimmings on the ends to make them look like pine trees. It made sense that these were a dollar, since they didn...

What’s a majorette? What do you do with the baton? Oh, so you lead the band, right? Are those knives you twirl sharp? What do you even do with a metal stick? Those are just some of the questions I get almost every time I tell people I’m a majorette or I twirl. It’s sad to say but not many pe...

On the 27th of this past October, 11 innocent men and women were gunned down in an act of evil inside the Jewish synagogue where they worshiped. The world watched as Pittsburgh mourned for those lost in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of this great city. Now, months later, as wounds slowly begin to heal,...
