Friday, November 17th, I was able to attend a conference put on by Faculty English Professor David Lacy, which aimed to educate people about the rise in hate speech and hate crimes in the US since the election of Trump. There were three lovely panelists who agreed to speak up about their experiences with hate, and I was privileged to talk with each of them more after the conference.

It’s that time of the year again where students start preparing for the upcoming fall semester! At least, it is that time where opportunities present themselves for the students to prepare for the next academic school year. One of the many opportunities is applying for scholarships!
Folsom Lake College, as well as all Los Rios Community Colleges, offer scholarships through scholarship.losrios.edu. The application is open to students until March 2, 2018, at 4:00pm.

Love is gross. Love makes you feel things, whether you want to or not. Love doesn’t care if it’s a convenient time for you. Sometimes, it’ll show up before you’ve gotten yourself ready. Or it’ll take its sweet time even when you’re begging and wishing for it to appear. Then, as soon as it shows up, it swallows up the little bit of common sense that you had and holds it hostage. It invades your thought process, making it pretty much impossible to focus on anything else. Want to finish your homework ahead of time? Too bad. Want to actually get stuff done today? Oh well. Instead, you’re going to lose yourself in feeling those feelings. Ew. I know right? I, myself, was proud to say that I was someone who did not feel those “feelings” that everyone talks about. I was someone who kept myself so busy with school and work that I didn’t have the time or energy to put up with all the drama that comes with romance and all that fluffy, mushy stuff. Romance is a lie anyway. Those sappy Hallmark movies and over-dramatized romance films that you see in the movie theater never portray what happens in real life. Yes, they might make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, for about two hours. But once the movie is over, you have to go back to your life, where the perfect love interest is not waiting at your door with gentle kisses and warm hugs. Instead, it’s just your cat, who only summons you when he needs food.
