Long-distance relationships are a struggle.

My boyfriend and I met in March 2015 and spent little time together before leaving for the summer; we stayed in touch that summer but rarely saw each other.

Be open to new experiences

Being in college and growing in this rapidly expanding hub of cultures has exposed me to numerous ways of thinking and ways of living.

Nebraska to consider medical marijuana bill

Nebraska state lawmakers are heavily considering passing a bill that would allow medical marijuana in the state. Although that may come as a shock to many of the residents, it actually shouldn’t.

Do something beautiful in your own way

Wake up in the morning and tell yourself it’s a beautiful day, because every day really is beautiful. Life is beautiful, even amid the ugly. And sometimes it takes a lot of perseverance to really find beauty in every day to-do lists, deadlines, chores, and duties.

Man, the struggle is real…

It’s a real struggle to be a girl.

Now before you put this paper down because this is going to be one of those articles about girls whining about how weak we are and how our lives are so rough, give me a chance to explain.

I am not like most girls.

Trump’s budget proposal honors his campaign

On March 16, President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal was released, revealing a $1.15 trillion budget. It calls for deep spending cuts, just like he claimed he was going to do when he was running for office. Like with many budget proposals, there are both winners and losers. While the military receives a budget boost of $54 billion, 12 departments take a hit. And surprisingly the agricultural department is among the losers with a projected cut of 21 percent.
