Winter break is right around the corner and that means it's time for the Netflix binging to begin, so curl up with a fluffy blanket and some hot chocolate because I have a good show for you. "New Girl" starts with the main character, Jess, getting cheated on by her boyfriend who she lives with. She...

With the first week of December rolling around, we are finally getting into what I would call “winter weather.” This is 30 degree temperatures, hats, coats, mittens, everything. And for unlucky dog owners like me who do not have a fenced-in yard, this means suffering out in the cold during walks j...

I decided to change up what I drew today, and instead of drawing a full body or an animal, or just a complete piece of something, I drew eyes. Human eyes only though, because I mainly wanted to focus on how they express emotion. While lots of animals express emotions through their eyes, human eyes are, in ...

Before you go into a food coma for this five day break we have for Thanksgiving, why not spend some of it watching Netflix? In honor of Shark Week being every week here at the Valley, and it being the final official week, I recommend the 1970s classic, “Jaws” to honor our rockin’ landsharks on the...

Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, togetherness and obviously, lots and lots of food. In many cases, families end Thanksgiving with tons of leftovers, and wonder if feeding the dog can help open up fridge space. Dogs love treats, but some are better than others. Here is a guide to help figure out w...

Happy Monday and welcome back! With Thanksgiving coming up this week, one thing that my family makes a point to do is to have music playing while we are in preparation for our guests. My family is always playing classic bands or artists like Journey, Boston, Bon Jovi, Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many ...

This presidential election seems to be plagued with doubt and fear. A popular opinion among a fraction of students recently has been that our country is doomed, for lack of a better term. The reaction to Trump’s election seems to be either extremely positive or extremely negative. There are plenty of r...

Even though Halloween is over, scary movies and shows remain popular year-round. I’m not usually a fan of scary shows, but this is one I particularly like because it’s more of a mystery than science fiction. “Stranger Things” takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in 1983. It all...

I think it’s safe to say that last Tuesday night was pretty intense for everyone. A huge amount of people I know had believed that former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was going to win the election, even those who wanted President-elect Donald Trump to take the win. So, when Trump did win...
