Destiny 2

Destiny was an extremely anticipated game before its release in September of 2014. I remember going into Gamestop to preorder it months before its release, and I still remember taking my first steps in its beautifully crafted simulated world. But that was over three years ago and for the game is starting to loose some of its fan bases attention, so one can imagine how excited people were when word began to spread about Destiny 2.

Safe Partying!!

Underage/teen drinking and partying seems to be a simple fact of life. Something people pretend their parents don’t know about, and everyone talks about. When the sentences, “This weekend was sooooo wild” and “I don’t think I’ve ever been so f$*!ed up in my life” are things you hear every Monday, it’s clear that people like to focus on letting everyone know how drunk they were, and less about how to be safe and cautious in dangerous situations. With date-rape, drugs, and sexual assault running rampant at teenage parties, it’s important to know how to take safety measures to reduce high-risk activities. Especially for people who aren’t boys, parties can be very dangerous if you don’t take precautions. Continue reading Safe Partying!!

A Poem

A fairytale presented as a dream in the adult world is the normality of a child’s mind,

As you age,

Fantasy is lost,

The world begins to feel like a heavy blade on your back, dulling your perception of wonder and acceptance,

Evidence can be found,

Adults are trying to reach the intensity of a child,

Observing, looking, peering into a children’s interactions with the world, Continue reading A Poem

How Petting a Dog a Day Can Help Reduce Anxiety and Depression

To prove that petting dogs does change your mood, I asked a few people to answer a simple question on whether or not petting dogs helped relieve their stress and anxiety.  Each person I asked said similar things, one of the people I asked said “Yes I feel that if I’m super anxious petting my dog can help immensely”.  “When i’m stressed i often go to the dog park and just watch all the dogs play and have fun.”

How To De-Stress

Let’s talk about some of the ways you can help yourself de-stress. The first option, which I really recommend, is to pack up your tent and hiking boots and go camping! There are so many health benefits to camping, and I’ll let you know some of the more stress-related ones here. When you’re camping, the fresh air is really beneficial. Breathing in the extra oxygen releases serotonin in your body, and your body is put under less strain. Being outside in the sun can also balance out your melatonin levels. Melatonin is what makes you feel tired and can even cause feelings of depression. Last but not least, camping promotes exercise. Exercising produces endorphins, which are brain chemicals that can act as natural painkillers and improve your ability to sleep, therefore reducing stress. Continue reading How To De-Stress

Fashion Aesthetics Around NOVA

Fashion is a very personal thing, it could relate to a group you are in, favorite colors, feelings, even gender expression. What type of fabrics they are and how you put them together can really help you express yourself without even having to talk. I recently went around NOVA and asked some students what kinds of fashion they like expressing themselves with, or wish they could express themselves with.

Floral is a recurring pattern that many people at Nova tend to like. So far I haven’t found anyone who is into any specific type of merch–or has said that they were into it–except for anime or graphic tees. Also a few people don’t focus on fashion much at all and just look at it like only the basics. It is totally different to each person but if you look in a friend group you can see that they look a bit similar but each person has a slight different way they put their own spin on things.

Alligators

There are two different types of alligators, the American alligator and the Chinese alligator; this article is about the American alligator. 

Alligators are fierce reptiles that live in parts of Georgia, South and North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and all of Florida and Louisiana. It’s not unheard of for people in Florida, especially near the Everglades or a canal, to find alligators in their backyards, pools, in the street, or at surrounding parks.
