Everyone on the University of South Carolina campus looks like a zombie. I don’t mean that everyone is a monster, I just think that everyone is simply going place to place.
Every election event seems to have its quirks. Sometimes, there is so much competition that messages get lost in all the campaign craziness. Candidates need to be able to successfully navigate the campaign process in order to secure the win.
Carolina Food Co. provides an excellent service to students. Truly, we at USC have better on-campus dining than other schools in the state with our university being named one of the top 25 best colleges for food. But, there are various problems with the meal plans that disadvantage and harm students, especially freshmen on required plans.
Critics are mistaking actuality for romanticism in the newest true crime movie “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”
Family is an important part of our daily lives. Preceded only by safety and psychological needs on Maslow’s hierarchy, it plays a large role in our general happiness and well-being.
If I am being completely honest, I have spent the majority of my college career not knowing how to handle my money.
In the era of new-age witchcraft and manic pixie dream girls, horoscopes are making a comeback.
Zodiac signs and horoscopes are used as a descriptor of personality and predictor of fortune in modern day society. They can be found in various newspapers — including The Daily Gamecock — and websites in order to tell people their daily fortune and lucky numbers.
Of all of the contentious political issues facing our nation today, I believe none are more dire than the threat posed by climate change. It’s hard not to fall into pessimistic despair when confronted with the sheer scope of the environmental havoc we wreak upon the earth each day.
Self care — defined by PsychCentral as “any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health” — has become quite the trend over the past few years. While many Tumblr blogs would like to convince you that face masks and bubble baths will fix all your problems, they are pretty far off.
“Racially charged” is a new term being thrown around by media outlets as an escape hatch to calling someone a racist in any form of dispute or scandal. Two weeks ago, actor Jussie Smollett was attacked by two unknown men. The attack included the assailants supposedly wrapping a rope around Smollett’s neck while yelling racial slurs and saying, “This is MAGA country.” Additionally, police identified a chemical poured on Smollett that was possibly bleach. Yet there seems to be some question of whether these attacks were intentionally targeting a homosexual, African-American man.
The amount of stress from college that many students experience can be hard to handle. Workloads become heavy with readings, papers, projects and more. It also can be hard to find the time to see friends and catch up. There's one thing I’ve noticed that seems to be relieving these worries: a pet.
In the strange, cynical world we live in, it is easy to get lost in the angst surrounding Valentine’s Day. However, even if it is just a holiday made to exploit human relationships for corporate gain, it also can be pretty beautiful, and people really want to share with the world how beautiful their relationships are.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there's a lot of pressure to make plans and focus on “love.” However, I see love as such an obscure concept. We say “I love you” to friends and family every day, but suddenly it means something completely different when said to a significant other.
Oh, Valentine’s Day, the day where everyone that has a significant other celebrates, and those that don’t spend the night watching Netflix and eating Ben and Jerry’s. We say that Valentine’s Day is a day for love, but we seem to ignore one of the most important types of love we have: friendship.
The idea of pain should not be considered poetic, period. However, there is always a need for three-dimensional characters and emotions, even if the mere subject of agony should not come with a pillow of romance. In the same sense, though, the idea that artists have to be sad in order to make quality content has always frustrated me. I hate that when you tell someone that you are an artist they immediately stereotype you as struggling.
I am scared to hold my girlfriend’s hand in public. For years, I have seen people pull off multi-colored pins and rainbow bracelets after pride in order to stay safe on their rides home, and while the world has become much more friendly towards the LGBTQ+ community, a lot of us still live in fear.
In today’s society it is easy to claim someone is being “too sensitive” or a “special snowflake” in response to them calling out your blatant discrimination that you have disguised as “jokes.” However, when it comes down to it, some folks just don't have a good sense of humor.
Who would have thought that an insolent child could throw a 35-day long tantrum? Well, the government was shut down for 35 days. That marked the longest government shutdown since Clinton in 1995. One must think there are very specific and grand reasons for such a shutdown, seeing as there were approximately 420,000 federal employees that were working without pay.
