I just have to say, I am beyond thrilled for the future of Houston sports. Being a Texans fan, it was hard to watch the disappointing NFL season that led Houston to ranking at the very bottom of the league. The Texans along with the other Houston-based teams have had somewhat of a rough patch recently. However, things are starting to look up. Photo credit via READ MORE

By now, we've all heard of the devastating defeat that knocked the United States out of the World Cup yesterday. Despite the painful end, one player stood out among the rest and became a US legend overnight. US Goalie Tim Howard saved sixteen goals during the game- a record high for the last 50 years that the stat has been recorded. Even better- he inspired the #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave hashtag, which is probably one of the best things to hit the internet. Here are just a few #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave Kanye from being a fool: READ MORE

Kansas City is constantly stepping it up. We may be living in the Heart of the Midwest but there is no lack of style here. Last Saturday, 18th Street in Kansas City, Mo. was flooded with hundreds of spectators eagerly awaiting the start of the annual West 18th Street Fashion Show. This year's show, Ceremonial Summer, was comprised of 14 local designers each showcasing five pieces. From some of the more abstract pieces to the more ready-to-wear styles, many of the works paralleled the trends that have been seen on larger runways around the world this season.  READ MORE

15 Movies You Probably Forgot About

By Justine Powls

There are a ton of movies that come out all the time and sometimes it's hard to keep up! I mean, really, at this point in your life, you've witnessed about 20 years (or more) of movie madness. So what about all of those VHS movies when you were a kid— where did they go? Personally, I find it extremely upsetting that the VHS isn't a thing anymore. I blame my lack of current movie knowledge on the loss of VHS players; for some reason, when they left the movie scene, so did I. So, for summer reminiscing or rewatching purposes, here are 15 movies that you most likely forgot about until now: 1) The Land Before Time Littlefoot was always our favorite... READ MORE

Anxiety Gal Conquers London

By Sarah Kramer

It's just past midnight and I'm sitting in bed in my flat in central London. Everything is quiet. It's a Sunday night, and even the usual honking of cars and screeching of ambulances down High Kilburn Road has stopped, maybe for the first time since I arrived five days ago. Waking up every morning and remembering that I'm in England for the next two months is such a strange and incredible feeling, but it's even more impressive when I think about who I was and how I felt a year ago and how traveling thousands of miles to a different country by myself was something I'd never thought I'd be able to do in my entire life.    READ MORE
