Destiny Wilborn, Design Editor

February 18, 2014

Children are easily influenced by what they see and hear, which is probably why most people blame Disney for giving young kids “high standards” of what a relationship should be.

From all the back-and-forth Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and text messages, to the endless phone conversations that come along with insults, accusations and name calling, teenagers go through hardships just to maintain a temporary relationship.

What you gain from a relationship doesn’t have to be a deep inner meaning to life or about what you want from a relationship, but it helps you realize that there’s more to love than there may appear. Though contrary to some people’s belief, there are some people who prefer to be single. They...

Staff Editorial

February 18, 2014

“Frozen” is an enchanting fairy tale that shows loyalty and bravery. With Broadway music and not only one but two princesses, the movie is a throwback to Disney cartoons your mom may remember.
