By Lauren Cannon I find myself wondering if other girls or guys are thinking the same thing as I am, like is it normal to “get with” a man 10 years my senior? Do guys like it when girls talk dirty to them? These are all questions that no one can seem to answer, yet many […]
By Kassondra Granata From the age of ten until my senior year of high school, musical theatre was my absolute passion. The moment I stepped on stage for my first production, I was hooked. The lights and the delighted faces in the crowd bewitched me. I took pleasure in performing, whether it was making them […]
