Face it—most of us aren’t artists, on or off a campus. When it comes to decorating our homes, many times we fail. Sometimes the inspiration just doesn’t come, or maybe our color palettes are a bit out of style, and in some extreme cases, our tastes exceed our sight. The last thing we want is to scare our guests, but we don’t wish to bore them, either. The trick is to find a good balance between extreme and extremely lame.
There are many ways to bring positive attention to your home. One of the best ways to add flare...

We all know that person that is allergic to almost everything. This person can hardly step outside his front door before he’s attacked by all kinds of contaminants that make him sneeze or make his eyes water. When this happens, all he has to do is go to the doctor and tell the doctor what’s going on with him.
“Well, doc, every time I go outside during the Spring to play disc golf with my friends, my eyes start to water and I can’t even enjoy myself.”
At which point the doctor will undoubtedly tell him that he has allergies and prescribe him some...

Hurricane season is around the corner. Are you ready? The 2012 hurricane season is estimated to be a mild season with little to no activity in comparison to the past 4 years.

I’m just going to shoot from the hip on this one (although seriously, when do I not?).
Most of us know how to stay healthy in public; it’s all common sense. Wash your hands and practice good hygiene, stay hydrated, cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough, stay away from co-workers who are sick, etc. We learned this stuff in kindergarten, people. Yet despite our best efforts, the occasional virus infiltrates the workplace and in general, makes a mess of things.
