Thor: The Dark World – Review

I recently wrote this review for Hope’s on-campus newspaper, The Anchor. Being an editor, I’m often asked questions about the types of submissions we’re looking for. Normally we only ask for 500 words, but we can usually fit a story that’s up to 750 words. For a better idea, check out my review of Thor: […]

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Review

Like so many of you probably already have, I spent my Saturday night at the movie theater watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Broke College Student’s Guide to Good Food

Look, we’ve all been there. We all have those days where nothing in Phelps or Cook looks appetizing, and the Kletz is closed.

Wilderness Sabbatical: My Saturday Excursion

I woke up at 8:00 AM this past Saturday, and I quickly realized I had nothing to do. I had homework, of course, but I have a personal rule of never doing homework on Saturdays, so I hopped in the shower and rode my bike down to the local Farmers Market. I expected the trip […]
