It’s that time of year again, folks: mistletoe abounds before you, elaborate presents are exchanged between loved ones, happy couples are snuggled in each other’s arms. Ah, yes. It’s that time of year that likes to remind me of just how dreadfully single I am. However, where ordinarily you might find me sobbing about the frightful possibilities of my solitary future, this year shows some promise “” of the male Hollywood persuasion. Turns out, 2012...

Not on many occasions do I pick up a book that’s part of a school’s curriculum and thoroughly enjoy its contents. Nothing ruins a book more than attempting to flesh out its underlying themes and motifs. For the most part, my repertoire consists of dull yawn inducers like The Great Gatsby (oops, probably offended like everyone), The Bell Jar and The Scarlet Letter, “” all very highly revered books and works of higher learning “”...

CAUTION: If you are under the ripe age of 21, I must advise you, for the safety of your liver and for the sake of you not getting arrested, to stop reading “¦ but, hey, you’re probably going to keep reading because you’re just way too cool for school, so “¦ I think it goes without saying that I should slap a big ol’ disclaimer on this already-controversial article. With the least sarcasm possible and...

If you’re stuck without a mode of transportation, let me begin by saying I am so incredibly sorry. I feel your pain like you can’t even imagine. Being at Trinity without a car is much like placing a baby in a cradle and saying, “Go forth and explore!” The good news is, there’s still this thing people do called walking. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I dislike having to expend energy (especially into...

There’s no denying that San Antonio is a popular tourist destination with riveting sites like the Alamo and the River Walk. But if headset tours really aren’t your thing (are they anyone’s?) and drunkenly perusing our so called “river” doesn’t get your excitement juices pumping I’ve got some haunted city legends that, come this Halloween, might work up more of a spooky sweat than that “Halloweentown” marathon you had planned. Turns out that San Antonio...

I’m gonna get real with y’all for a second and let you in on a deep dark secret of mine. I’m a huge scaredy-cat. I might act really tough while watching movies like “Insidious” or heck, even “Paranormal Activity” but I can promise you that when I go to sleep at night, my closets, shower and bed (under it, specifically) are thoroughly checked for any sign of some creepy demonic child waiting to eat my...

I won’t lie. When I heard about this book “Fifty Shades of Grey,” I knew I was going to read it. In fact, I wanted to “¦ really badly. So I went out and borrowed the book (because I can’t rightfully justify purchasing pornographic material to my inner conscious mind) and read it. I started off pretty skeptical, then became super impatient for the juicy parts. But once the juicy parts came (ha, sex joke)...

Before I delve into this touchy and emotional topic, I first want all of my readers to be aware that I did originally plan on making this article a serious one. All about how you and your significant other can survive being apart in this cruel, cruel world that separates your young love. But who are we kidding, right? Here I am, sitting in Mabee, about to write this article, and sarcasm is oozing from...
