After years of hiding in the closet with my old-school hip hop and Bon Iver, I’m finally coming out. I hereby announce — without shame and without regard for the friends who might turn against me — that am a Taylor Swift fan. Go ahead, you obscure-indie-listeners and rap-music-devotees, say what you want. Call me a “Swiftie,” even, because that’s exactly what I am.

Last week I wrote about men behaving misogynistic toward women. This week I’m looking in the mirror to observe ways in which women are cruel to one another.
Acts of misogyny — no matter how subtle or small — should not be tolerated or condoned. The term “boys will be boys,” which has often been used to excuse seemingly harmless misogynistic behavior, must no longer be a part of our vernacular. Men, for your own wellbeing, I’ve compiled a list of things NOT to do in order to avoid being a petty misogynist.
I’ve got a lot of scary stuff on my mind lately, and it actually has nothing to do with Halloween.
I have big news to share with everyone today: I am in love.
Test, papers, and projects — oh my! It’s that time of the semester where I look like a post-apocalyptic zombie and have zero tolerance for ANY sort of malarkey whatsoever.
This summer, I decided to cut my hair. Okay, that’s an understatement. This summer, I decided to shave the right side of my head.
This year, more than any other year, I’ve noticed a growing number of hipsters at Baylor. In a sea of sorority shirts and Nike shorts, they indeed stand out – and pride themselves in doing so.
Mondays. I hated them as a child when I had to wake up and eat flavorless Cheerios for breakfast, I hate them in college, and I’ll probably hate them until the day I die.
Being a senior is weird. It’s not bad, it’s not good — it’s just weird. I came to Baylor with a motivated and enthusiastic spirit, ready to tackle papers and tests with vivacity. But now, four years later, all I want to do is eat cheese, watch chick-flicks, and not think about having to apply for jobs soon. Be warned, freshman: Senioritis is real.
