Four Reasons Why I Have Issues With “Thirteen Reasons Why”

Raichel Jenkins | Editor-in-Chief | rj790813@ohio.edu

Like many, I eagerly set out to binge-watch “Thirteen Reasons Why” on Netflix. I found myself just as frustrated with Clay for dodging watching the tapes for thirteen episodes, but ultimately found myself frusturated for other reasons. This is a short show and I really struggled to finish it and only recently came to understand why that is. *Warning there are some spoilers in this review.

Diana Wiebe & Laura Frey | Lifestyle/Culture

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 7.37.22 PMWe’re the ones to ask about your dirty little secrets. Known as the DL, we’re two classy (and never too trashy) ladies who will answer your questions the best we can and hopefully help others in the same position. Think of us as OUCounseling, the twitter account for after you’ve met your OUCrush and made your OUConfessions. Question: Is it acceptable to want to do the activities mentioned in “Fifty Shades of Grey?” What even is all that stuff?!

*NOTE: “The DL” is a column that appeared in our winter 2014 issue. Columnists Diana Wiebe and Laura Frey give their opinions about BDSM culture. This column was printed prior to the release of the 50 Shades of Grey movie, now in theaters.

Mixing Up the Dining Halls

Lifestyle Editor| Raichel Jenkins| rj790813@ohio.edu| @rj790813

Let’s face it, eating healthy in the dining hall is difficult and can often feel like you’re just eating a plate of black beans and peas (which is probably because you are). After seeing the same food in the same places every day, it’s hard to imagine mixing them in new concoctions. It’s way easier to give in and grab that two-day-old slice of pizza rather then attempt to get…gasp…tasty and healthy food. Not only is it possible, but it’s also incredibly easy if you allow for some trial and error in your creativity. Continue reading Mixing Up the Dining Halls

Lifestyle Staff Writer | Teresa Aduloju | ta587312@ohio.edu

Last Tuesday morning my cell phone lit up with messages about a teacher who had been messing around with a senior girl at none other than my alma mater, Athens High School. I signed onto my Facebook and my newsfeed was filled with posts about the story. Isaac Thomas, my former Greek and Roman Civilizations teacher from high school, had been escorted off Athens High’s campus.

Mind Your Body: Your One True Love – Napping

Society Staff Writer | Jessica Sees | js392211@ohio.edu

In this edition of Mind Your Body, I want to focus on something near and dear to all of our hearts – napping. It’s not always realistic to expect eight hours of uninterrupted sleep at night, so napping is the perfect way to replenish your energy levels quickly or remember the study guide for your gigantic exam in four hours. A key factor for relaxation and keeping anxiety levels to a minimum is maintaining a solid amount of sleep daily, and napping is a great way to do so. I love a good snooze as much as the next girl (or guy), but in order to obtain the appropriate amount of sleep for your nap, you need to know a thing or two about the different types of naps.
