April 14, 2013 - 2:12am

We all have those classes...the ones where we don't have to pay a single second of attention and still pass with flying colors. The "all lecture" class periods, with the "only book material" tests.

I decided to step outside my comfort zone and dive head first into something that I never would have attempted in my past. Before I go any further into detail about my quest of finding my inner diva let me  introduce myself. I am Briahna, a sophomore at SFA and I am a Physics major.

I am afraid to extend myself for the fear of being rejected by societal views of what is beautiful.This is what I need to change. This is what I will change.  ...

October 24, 2012 - 4:15pm

It’s about that time of year again: “Cuffing Season.” According to the Urban Dictionary, “During the Fall and winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves, along with the rest of the world, desiring to be “Cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship.

This season definitely plays as a double-edged sword; it can be really good and really bad. “Cuffing season: It ain’t nothing but a renting service.” - @SpokenReasons READ MORE
