You see an enticing person on the internet and you’re at a loss for words. Finding a mate in real life hasn’t been going that well so you figure a virtual courting session would be successful. But two huge hurdles separate the two of you. One is the distance and the other involves not knowing who this person is...
It’s week six, and with midterms in full swing it can be hard to keep track of much else with all those late night studying sessions. Especially when you miss an exam review because you thought it was being held on Thursday when the TA moved it Wednesday at the last minute, but I rest my case. Valentine’s Day...
As we head into the summer, some students may feel they haven’t made enough friends to socialize with. It’s a concern that’s common across campus. For graduating students you are moving on, and likely hoping to instead develop lasting relationships in a new institution or field. And for any underclassmen, you may be thinking there are still many quarters...
Commonly, college is perceived as a place for young students to pursue their passions, an almost mystical land of opportunities where dreams become a reality. Many students, including myself, come into UCR with high hopes of becoming the next Steve Jobs or Meredith Grey (yes, that is the only doctor I know of, though she is fictional). However, reality...
Trolling is unavoidable. One day, you ask the internet, “My car is messed up. What do I do?” Someone responds, “Yah! Just deflate your tires half way so you can reset the flux capacitor.” This is trolling. It’s a form of online toxicity, and whether you’re on YouTube or playing League of Legends, you’re likely to encounter it. Someone on...
"Pain is temporary, but GPA is forever.” Generally when people look back on how their grades started to flop in the last stretch of the quarter, they rarely ask themselves what they could have done in the early weeks to help their grade. College can be excruciating at times and finding ways to dramatically boost your GPA in a relatively...
Staff Writers Janine and Edward will be having a dialogue about embarking on a new relationship or person of interest, offering perspectives from a male and female point of view in an effort to see where any potential divides and similarities emerge. A vast amount of people are under the impression that the male and female approach to relationships...
The key to getting wonderful grades isn’t as mysterious as people think. People study for hours on end trying to absorb an exorbitant amount of knowledge into their brains and it usually never goes well. Those poor souls have been doing it all wrong for years. But rest assured, today is the day I reveal the method to the...
It’s 2018 and that means more than just new year’s resolutions; a new year brings a new quarter and new set of classes. But with new beginnings come the end of all the old habits we picked up over winter break. After three weeks of binging TV shows all day and staying up till 3 a.m., it can be...
  For about 180 days a year, us college students are entrapped in an arduous cycle of endless studying, inadequate sleep and a montage of personal problems that exacerbate the toil of school and maintaining one’s health. Aside from the minuscule two-day weekends and occasional seasonal breaks, we are given no time to step away entirely from the burdensome stress...
