Eighteen-year-olds are legally considered adults, allowed to vote and die for this country, but have to wait to grab a drink and now a cigarette until they are 21. Conversely, science says the brain isn’t fully developed until the age of 25. These varying definitions beg the question: What is adulthood?

It’s 2 a.m. Saturday morning and South Carolina plays Clemson in 10 hours. Of course, my last game as a student would be a noon game. I should be getting plenty of sleep to prepare for a morning of tailgating, but here I am writing this letter from the editor.

Once again, Taylor Swift was forced to fight for the rights to her work, highlighting the underlying sexism within the music industry and its dark history of exploitation.

Living with a roommate is something every person should experience in their lifetime. Opportunities such as these — which test your boundaries, resourcefulness and patience — are unique to the college experience. I cannot think of any other situation in which placing two scared, stressed strangers in a shoebox-sized room and forcing them to coexist for eight months would be justified.
There is a very fine line in our world today between staying true to our own identities and respecting those of other people. In our culture, we have many groups that shout at the rest of the world that they deserve respect, and they do.
