The longer I attend college, the more expensive it seems to get. Textbooks, parking passes, printing and additional technological sources pile up to bills no one wants to pay. Those financial burdens alone are enough to discourage anyone regarding the college experience. The last thing students need is another reason to stress about their college experience. However, plenty of classes have decided to give one: an online textbook and assignment access.
Let me be as plain and direct as I can- IT IS TOO HOT. I have always been a perpetually sweaty girl growing up in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, trying to cope in high school by bringing extra deodorant in my backpack and asking my teachers to turn fans on me. Nothing, however, prepared me for the heat and humidity of Nacogdoches. Every time I step outside, I am greeted with a sweaty, gross mass of humidity wrapping me in its arms and carrying me to my class.
Even with these factors, including two new lots set to be finished in January of 2020 (lot 56 for commuters, and lot 60 for residents), are these offered solutions enough to fix the parking problem on campus?
Being on your own is great. It is scary to have that kind of independence and responsibility, but once you figure it out life can be whatever you make of it.
Marvel Studios, in partnership with Sony, did it again this summer by releasing another successful blockbuster, "Spider-Man: Far From Home." The film’s initial release date was set for July 5 but was released early on July 2. Starring Tom Holland as the titular hero, Far From Home is the 23rdinstallment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is the sequel to "Avengers: Endgame." To date, the MCU has released three films this year, including "Captain Marvel" in March and "Avengers: Endgame" in April. This is also the final film in the MCU’s “phase three” slate of films which kicked off with "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016.
Going into this album, I had no expectations. I wasn’t really a fan of Lana Del Rey, nor did I really get the hype around her, especially on her song Summertime Sadness. Although I don’t really know Rey’s music, I do realize that she doesn’t just create music; she creates an essence. She sometimes creates aesthetically pleasing art. Although I think some of her music is pretty and nice, I genuinely think her music is for those with an acquired taste.
Like everyone else in the world that is a fan of the band Tool, I was eagerly waiting for Aug. 30 to arrive. This would be the release of their highly anticipated album, “Fear Inoculum.” After an astounding 13 year absence, Tool was finally about to come out with a new record. I was more than excited to listen to it. I got my first taste of the album when Tool released the title track, “Fear Inoculum” a couple weeks before the album. Overall, I enjoyed the track. The song reminded me of the older Tool songs, which I really enjoyed. I was a bit disappointed that they decided to drag the song out to 10 minutes, but I didn't think much of it at the time.
