How Taylor Swift Reclaimed Her Name – A Deep Dive into the (Taylor’s Version) Re-Recordings

“Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it.¨ Taylor Swift is indefinitely one of the most influential pop icons of the 21st century. With eleven albums, thirty-two Grammy nominations, and eleven wins, Swift has truly proved herself to be the artist of the decade.

However, behind Swift’s fame is a dark truth: Swift currently has no rights over her music.

COVID Conversations with Dr. Dauber: Issue I

“It’s not something I’m opposed to…but please recognize that this is a bigger structural change that would need to go “up the flagpole”, so to speak” . This type of change, he emphasized, would need to be discussed with Ms. Cincotta, the principal at South, as well as Dr. Aderhold, the district superintendent. A change at this level might even require Board of Ed input. Dauber agreed to set up a meeting with Ms. Cincotta, and to help the student council set up a meeting with Dr. Aderhold himself.

What a Post-Roe World Means

Newly passed Texas law S.B. 8 went into effect September 1, 2021—catapulting the United States into what may soon become a post-Roe world. Roe v. Wade, a case ironically stemming out of Texas in 1973, has guaranteed women the right to a safe and legal abortion for the past 48 years.

Behind the black box and the one-day return to Zoom school

Perhaps we needed something of a break after two months back in person. Perhaps we did not want a reminder of those days when we wanted to break because the agony of the video call was becoming too much to bear. Regardless, the governor had made his decision — any school to be used for voting could go virtual on Election Day — and not only would the masks come off everyone’s faces, most of those faces would then disappear behind the cloak of the black box.

Why I Would Be Willing to Read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo at Least Seven Times

When I first heard of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and learned that the book would follow the life of a glamorous fifties movie star, I was hesitant. My expectations were that it would follow a common stereotype of women with many husbands — that they all died a mysterious, tragic death, the cause “unknown.” To be honest, I thought it was a cliche. The reality of it, however, is far more tragic and bittersweet than I had initially expected it to be, and it has nothing to do with Evelyn Hugo’s seven husbands so much as it has to do with the tale of her and her greatest love.

What I’ll Keep: Family Game Nights

Before the pandemic, getting everyone in my family into one room was nearly impossible. My mom and dad on calls, my sister attending class, and my brother in the basement on his PlayStation meant I rarely had time to see them before dinner. But when we were hit with our first lockdown last year, I found myself spending the most time with my family than I ever had before.
