It seems that everywhere we turn, another female leader in the corporate world is expounding her opinion on whether women in the workforce today can truly “have it all.”
I grew up learning that getting eight or more hours of sleep was the only pathway to success. Getting less than the doctor-recommended amount of shuteye would apparently lead to an overall lesser amount of productivity, emotional mood swings and an inclination to consume a million unnecessar…
Flu season is miserable for everyone. Even for those lucky enough to stay healthy during this time, a constant fear that our immune season will abruptly weaken always remains.
The importance of social media has been truly discussed ad nauseum.
It’s universally realized that college is a world of its own. Fledgling young adults are thrown into an atmosphere where eating pizza for every meal is socially acceptable, going to bed before midnight is abnormal, and skipping class because “my bed is just so much more inviting!” is a commo…
The Feminist Revolution has come a long way. A female who speaks her mind is no longer subjected to being stoned in the village square, and a woman who desires a post-high school education is applauded for having larger aspirations than solely acquiring the title of “housewife.”
Social networking is the defining characteristic of my generation. Previous age groups were defined by factors such as their parents’ post-war procreation rates or their own collective inclinations for tie-dye and peace signs, but ours is definitely latched with social media.
In the United States, Asian Americans are typically well-known for several things: our great academic performances, our ability to master classical instruments and our insistence that orange chicken seriously is not a traditional meal from the homeland.
The start of a new year always arrives with the exciting anticipation of clean slates and new opportunities. Events from the previous 365 days aren't completely washed away and forgotten, but at the very least, they are slightly dulled by the rush that usually accompanies new beginnings.
The taste of freedom is an alluring mix of mostly sweet combined with hints of cautioned irresponsibility. This universal rite of passage for all teenagers entering into the world of adulthood is inevitable and, for a large majority, comes when our adorably loving, but increasingly too invol…
The Fourth of July, like most national holidays, is centered on three main things: spending time with family and friends, celebrating with seasonal foods, and participating in traditional holiday activities.
If there has been anything I've learned over my past 17 years, it has been this: Parenting is not for the faint-hearted. From the very start, parents must deal with incessant interruptions and countless hours of lost sleep. Of course, most parents realize that raising a child is a challenge,…

Beginning with the class of 2014, Crown Point High School will no longer be recognizing the top 10 students of their class. The Distinguished Graduate program will take its place.
For the most part, a re-evaluation of what is important in life, and the ability to fully appreciate everything one has, requires a near-death experience.
The beginning of a new school year has come and gone. First day anticipation and the recounting of summer stories are now bleached, faded pages of the past. Instead of the happy, glow of friends reuniting once again in halls, sleepy students walk slowly from class to class.
Music is a universal language. From the remote lands of Africa to the skyscraper-laden metropolis of Chicago, it lives with burning vitality in the hearts and souls of its people. It is a unanimous bond that creates an indestructible connection with every single race, community, country and …
