Therefore, I present to you adorable animals that might help us remember the true purpose of Thanksgiving. Here is what they are thankful for, as told from their perspectives. Muah!

November 27, 2013 - 12:00am

I have heard a lot of my friends talk about how they get upset when winter comes. What many people do not know is that there is a type of depression that can be more than just the “winter blues.” This depression, called Seasonal Affective Disorder, is present in many individuals, especially women. It is also more prominent in areas that have less exposure to sunlight in the winter months (I’m looking at you, Boston!). READ MORE

Eating Right When You’re Eating Too Much: A Guide to Tackling Thanksgiving Dinner

By Mary Lou Ponsetto
November 26, 2013 - 12:00am

You’re going to overeat this Thanksgiving. But don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with that fact! Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate everything you’re thankful for, and what can you be more grateful for than food? So eat it and enjoy it! The advice I suggest is not meant to be taken as a way to diet over the break, but instead a way to make sure that the calories you do consume count. Try to make the most out of what precious room you have in your stomach by filling it with more protein and vitamins than fat, salt, and sugar.   READ MORE

The New CW Must Watch Show: Reign

By Christina Leme
November 24, 2013 - 12:00am

The dictionary defines a guilty pleasure as “something, such as a movie, television program, or piece of music that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard.” And I have to say the new CW TV show Reign is exactly that. And now I am attempting to make it my “un-guilty” pleasure by telling you all about it. Okay so it’s basically a show about Mary Queen of Scots when she moves to France to marry the prince. However, things are not so simple when she arrives there. Not only is the prince unsure if marrying into Scotland is in France’s best interest, but also a potential love triangle ensues. The prince’s illegitimate brother has also fallen for Mary. READ MORE
