Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s been a long, rough week. In fact, it’s been a long term already, and we're only halfway through it. I’ve been feeling really drained from work, classes and especially the weather. Just trying to be present in the moment is tiring...
As a hardcore Taylor Swift fan, I’ll admit I get a little defensive when people openly don’t like her music. However much I disagree with them, though, I understand that everyone has different musical tastes. So, I won’t be arguing that everyone should love Taylor Swift. I will, however, share my opinion on why everyone should just shut up about female musical artists only writing about their exes.
As this term comes to an end, conversations about winter break plans naturally begin to arise. As with many things, Lawrentians tend to make a competition out of winter break.

However, what I don’t think is understandable is calling a woman a bitch simply because she is doing her job.
I don’t know about you all, but lately it has felt like the world is ending. And by lately, I mean my entire lifetime. And by “the world is ending,” I mean I have no hope for our future. Also, I know for a fact I’m not the only one who feels like this. I have a conversation like this with someone at least every day! Eek! What are we going to do about that?!
