Kuhlmann's Corner, Liz Kuhlmann

September 24, 2013

These past few weeks have been extremely satisfying ones for any KC sports fans out there. Just the other night, Justin Maxwell ended the Royals home season with a walk off grand slam in the 10th inning for a 4-0 win over the Rangers. The MLB team is now ranked third in the ACL and in my opinion, has a good...

Chances are, if you have access to the internet, Netflix, Tumblr, or all of the above, you have heard of "Orange is the New Black." If not, get your head out of a hole and start watching it. This won't be a hard task, considering Netflix dumped the whole first season on at the same time this summer -...

Between homework, work, friends, sports, clubs, family and everything else that fills our life, the time to breathe interrupts the chaos only briefly. Sometimes days go by in a snap, and other times, they bulge with endless negativity and progress slower than ever. And it never seems to be just one ...

Any dedicated athlete will tell you, the worst feeling in the world is being benched due to injury. Take it from someone who's been injured frequently, there is no bigger feeling of helplessness. Reflecting on my own personal injuries, and watching a few football players this past Friday leave the field...

Make way for Crewneck Tuesday

Claudy With a Chance of Controversy, Claudia Chen

Every Tuesday, a few dozen students at Northwest band together and wear crewneck sweatshirts. This concept of “Crewneck Tuesday” was started last year, but has just recently begun to take off.

Family is forever, but sometimes far away

I have six siblings. Being the oldest, I've had the opportunity to watch most of them grow from gross parasites to cute toddlers to awkward prepubescent children. As anyone with siblings can attest, having them definitely has its ups and downs. Now, my family situation differs from the norm. My parents...

In addition to my other  classes, this semester I am taking an online class through Johnson County Community College.  It’s called Literature by Women; and in addition to reading a variety of feminist authors, the goal is to further understand gender identity. It got me thinking about feminist...

Do you ever try to text while talking to someone, or listen to music while trying to read? My hunch is you have - multitasking in the 21st century is about as common as all the Miley Cyrus jokes on my Twitter timeline. We all have so much to do, little time to do it, and endless technology that makes m...

Steroids: You lose when you use

Kuhlmann's Corner, Liz Kuhlmann

September 10, 2013

As kids, we always dreamed about becoming professional sports players. We had our role models, the pros we looked up to and wanted to be like. We wrote letters to them in illegible writing, drew pictures of them, wore their jerseys and whenever the question appeared on an “All About Me” assignment:...
