"I’ll Wait for You"
I’ll wait for you every day
And feel the earth turn
Beneath the pale moonlight
And through the forest of fern
I’ll wait for you on the cliffs
When the rocks have fallen away
I’ll wait for you in the dark
After the death of day
I’ll wait for you by the sea

"Photography has always fascinated me as an art form. It's not only composition and beauty, but also scientific advancement and the power of observation. And it can be as variable as portraying reality in detailed vibrancy, or be distorted beyond recognition. I began photographing with a $60 little...

The Boston Red Sox have had many ups and downs throughout the entire grueling 162-game Major League Baseball season. Entering the 2016 season, manager John Farrell and the front office had the gigantic challenge of answering the floating questions regarding their pitching staff.
You would think that...

Fellow Patriots fans, the time is finally upon us. The infamous “deflategate” suspension is over and future Hall of Fame Quarterback Tom Brady is back in the pocket for the New England Patriots.
But I want to take a moment, before I get too far into Brady’s return, to give credit to...

I wrote this poem about being on your own in college composed entirely of phrases copied and pasted from Yelp reviews of Forever 21.
Can’t find anything here. Maybe it’s hidden.
I am BROWSING. I am not lost. I am not a puppy or a child.
If you know exactly what you want, you’re in trouble.

Here at Salem State University, I think it’s fair to say that as a Liberal Arts college, we’re fairly liberal people. If anybody here says they are going to vote for Trump in the election, they will definitely receive some glares. So, instead of trying to convince you all to vote for Hillary...

Over the last eight years, President Obama has vetoed only 12 bills proposed by Congress. Yet, for the first time since President Obama has been in office, Congress has vetoed President Obama’s veto on a bill called the “9/11 Victims Bill”. In a very basic sense, this bill allows families...

As I am still digesting the first presidential debate, the memes, the gifs and overall comedic parody of who will run our nation next; I wonder, why am I even voting?
I am a journalist student in my senior year and unashamedly just registered to vote last month. Of course, my conforming comes at one...

Westerns are a dying breed in cinema today, which to me is a particular shame. The genre has breaded several classics, from Clint Eastwood’s mean stares in “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” to John Wayne’s screen-chewing presence in “True Grit”. Recently however, the genre has been about as...

Out of all Donald Trump’s flaws, the easiest one to criticize him for his is seemingly never ending stream of lies.
Trump supporters can argue if the things he's said are racist (they have been) or sexist (ditto), and they can say that he is joking when he insinuates that “Second Amendment...

Let’s talk about memes.
At the word, people either roll their eyes with a groan, or produce a sly smirk and make a comment stolen from some social media site (I find myself to be the latter). But the fact of the matter is, memes, or just Internet culture in general, has wormed its way into...

Uprooted my roots
Uprooted my roots,
They were never ending
My mind took one wrong turn
And then I bended
My creativity extended
Became opened and then intruded
Results in an illusion
That my soul...
