September 27, 2013

I love a great college party. Few things get me more pumped up at 10 p.m. than throwing on a skin-tight minidress and my brightest lipstick before heading out for a night of drunken dancing until bar-close. I go to a bar or house party at least every other weekend and I was a regular patron...

Funky New Schedule

September 25, 2013

I’ll probably be awake until at least 2 a.m. again tonight. That’s OK though, since none of my classes start before noon and I rarely ever have to work during mornings. A typical day for me seems to involve waking up around 11 a.m. and working or studying until 2 or 3 a.m. As the DS’ Multimed...

Sometimes it’s very hard to speak out

Jaye Millspaugh, Multimedia Editor

September 24, 2013

One of the biggest compliments someone could ever give me would be “you have a beautiful voice.” No one has ever told me that though, and I doubt anyone ever will unless it’s in the form of fake sympathy. I have a lisp. It’s as annoying to deal with, as you can imagine. I’ll admit I hate...

Hey, everyone! Jaye here. We’ve already made it over halfway through September. Dat shit cray, haha. Despite the occasional stress, I always have so much fun here at UND. Although I love being in school, I don’t always love the weather during the school year. Summer has always been my favorite seaso...
