Struggling with the Arizona sun

Written by Liz Cheney, Staff writer

April 20, 2012

It’s April and the thermometer has already cracked the 90-degree mark. That’s just one of the many “plusses” of living in beautiful Arizona. For me, the record-breaking 100 degrees is too much. If you’re like me and you don’t tan or get darker until after your skin turns four shades of red, the sun is a dangerous...

Energizing coffee

Written by Asada Njuguna, Life & Times Editor

March 8, 2012

My life can be described as slightly crazed. I have two younger siblings who are very active, so I’m always caught in some sort of function on top of juggling my own. Most nights I don’t get to bed until late and I have a very delicate sleep schedule. I’ve learned that in order for me to function like a normal human being...

Juggling January

Written by Jacqui Marzocca, Managing Editor

January 9, 2012

January is the beginning of a new year with new goals and expectations, yet it has the same demanding needs as the year before. It is easy to become overwhelmed and get stressed out.

If there is one thing I’ve learned in life up to this point it’s that if a cute guy asks for your number, you give it to him. That’s common sense, isn’t it? I made the mistake of not giving the cute guy my number and I’ve regretted it ever sense. As I thought about my small mistake, my perception of it grew and...

The tragedy of movie making from books

Written by Sarah Dinell

September 10, 2010

It’s an age old argument; movies vs. books. But what about those books that are made into movies? Which version is better? Recently, in one of my bouts of boredom, I was reading through lists of books that were eventually made into movies. There were many more than I expected, a lot of movies that I didn’t even know were...

The cure to insecurities

Written by Tatum Hartwig

September 2, 2010

Insecurity is something I have suffered with my entire life. I remember even in elementary school thinking that I wasn’t as pretty as the other girls or that I didn’t have as nice of clothes as my classmates. These feelings of inadequacy only grew as the years passed. I became more awkward and isolated. I mean, I did have...
