I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired 

I enjoy working and I like the jobs that I have, but as I have gained more leadership and developed a passion for the fields that I am pursuing, it has become glaringly obvious that my expectations are set much too high, in others’ opinions. 

Laughlin: the best community on campus 

This is my last issue working as Editor-in-Chief for the Campus Carrier. Even after two years as Editor-in-Chief and three years on staff, I’ll go ahead and clarify that yes, journalism is my passion. 

Our View: Listen and learn from other peoples’ stories 

Humans, by nature, are storytellers. Cave drawings depict animals, humans and other objects and were likely associated with oral stories.

If you know me well, then you know that Bob Dylan has fulfilled that role for me for much of the last seven years. However, I’m going to discuss a more recent singer-songwriter I’ve been enjoying. 

Earn more money through passive income 

Growing up, we tend to think a lot about what we want to be when we reach adulthood. Whether you wanted to be an astronaut, a doctor, a teacher, an athlete or a fashion designer, our minds have always focused on the idea of working for money.
