Dear Christmas, you might not know who I am, but when I was little, I was a huge fan of you. As I get older, I realize you give me more of a headache than finals and nicotine withdrawal combined. To tell you the truth Christmas, you are getting out of hand. Not everyone celebrates you and having your...

For some reason, the inevitable holidays that close out the end of every year inspire the masses to be pretty generous, even for college students. We’re not exactly sure why, but something about the holidays of the fall and winter months cause people to feel particularly open-handed. There’s a sma...

During Thanksgiving break I decided to go see the new Justice League movie. Overall, I was impressed and I thought it lived up to the hype. However, this film was not perfect. I found a huge flaw in it--directors Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon somehow managed to sexualize Amazon warriors. In the Wond...

I have a lot of opinions. Everyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about many things, especially politics. There are many things I don’t understand (mostly the economy), but I can support my arguments when necessary. Americans are passionate people. We’ve seen a lot of debates about the way our c...

Last year at this time, the headline for the Globe’s Point was a bit more harrowing than this week’s. “Support groups necessary” was the headline that sat atop the first graph of the editorial – “This year’s election, as pointed out in both opinions pieces this week, has been unusually ...

This past week, President Donald Trump visited Asia on a tour, including visits to Vietnam, the Philippines and China. Supposedly, the visit was meant as a way for the president to meet with foreign diplomats and attend summits. I cannot express to you how high my stress levels were. Over the course o...

Yesterday was Election Day. Across the nation, people voted for their local council members, district judges and mayors. Odds are you didn’t vote in that election. Perhaps you didn’t know it was even happening. We at the Globe understand the basic civics concept that government starts at the smal...

We need to talk about how the neighborhood of Downtown Pittsburgh is trying to starve its residents. But not all of its residents, just the ones that can’t afford the $7 grape package at Market Street Grocery, conveniently located in the heart of Downtown. It’s safe to say that any establishment th...

Over the past month, accusations against Hollywood bigwig Harvey Weinstein have been what seems to be an ever-constant flow. The multitude of allegations have brought to light the systematic sexual harassment that women in the industry face, and have faced for decades. With that being said, last w...

Dear Amazon, I love you and, like many college students, I wouldn’t survive without your discounted textbooks and two-day shipping. Although my bank account could probably use a break from your “Buy With One Click” feature, I will never quit you. I’m not alone in my reliance on your services....

Halloween is over. You know what this means? It’s time to start dying Easter eggs. In an attempt to get ahead of the capitalist game that is the holidays, we might as well tell ourselves that. November is real and it’s anxious. Thanksgiving is ready to sink its gravy-soaked talons into its haples...

I feel like I need to give a disclaimer before I start this: I hate Donald Trump. I haven’t been pleased with any of his actions or decisions from his campaign all the way to his almost year as president. I always try to be respectful of others opinions, but the issue at hand is not an opinion; it...
