The Perils of Pests

 - 

My friends and I live in a house off-campus. It’s an old house, and it has mice. No big deal, right? Well, one problem: one of my roommates is deathly afraid of mice. He constantly talks to us about when and where he’s seen the mice, and how we’re all going to... More »

High Hospital Bills

Problem Property

My parents recently got divorced, which was pretty tough on the whole family. My father moved out of my childhood home, and decided to move into his own childhood home, which he had recently inherited. He obviously has a sentimental attachment to the property,... More »

Like a lot of people, I’m a little concerned about how my private information is protected on the internet. I know that vital information about me is on the web in the care of companies large and small, from the bank I have my savings account with to the onlin... More »

The Future of Fuel

 - 

I love cars, and I always have. But I recognize that cars aren’t, you know, the best thing for the environment. And while I’m not super into environmental causes, I’ve been trying to be a little more conscious about them, especially because I’m dating someone ... More »

Contractor Costs

 - 

My parents recently renovated our home (my old high school bedroom is now an office – thanks, Dad). When they happened to mention how much it cost, I couldn’t believe it. They have been pretty generous with me, but I’m paying for a lot of college myself, and I... More »

Sustaining Your Smile

 - 

I had a kind of upsetting realization the other day: I have no idea when I last went to the dentist. I really mean that: I can’t remember any visits to the dentist since sometime in middle school, when I got my braces off (and, actually, that’s an orthodontist... More »
