In 1997 my father took my younger brother and I to see the film “Starship Troopers.” For those who haven’t seen it, it’s basically about a group of future army Roughnecks who set out to destroy an alien race of bugs who are coming to conquer Earth. You know, a good movie to take a [...]
As a college student, I know the size of my wallet and the span of my food menus. Sure, some nights I’ll splurge and eat out, but most of the time I’m stocking up on Ramen noodles or waiting for a Dillons employee to mark down the rotisserie chickens, which is around 7:30 every night [...]
When I was younger, I was always the kid with the Batman cape on. Whether it was the end of October or the middle of June, I didn’t need an excuse to don the Dark Knight’s gear. Needless to say Halloween has always been a pretty big deal for me, so when fall finally hits, [...]

I love the stories, the outfits and the following. [...]
In case you don’t have Facebook friends literally counting down the days until college football begins via CAPITALIZED and Exclaimed! posts, this weekend marks the first home game for the Jayhawks. While many will go for at least half of the game, not all will make it out to Memorial Stadium to cheer on the [...]
Early on in my collegiate career, amidst numerous required classes that had nothing to do with my major, I learned something much more important than the Quadratic Equation: I learned how to have fun. I’m Dylan Derryberry, an aspiring journalist, thrift store shopper and uncoordinated (yet highly entertaining) dancer. My goal: to get everyone to [...]
