n 2018, the idea of the federal #government intervening in everyday life is normal among young people and Americans in general. Our generation has grown up with government overreach is many areas of life without the slightest skepticism. I argue that the idea of limited government and the reasoning behind it has been lost or tainted in an ever-growing trend of interventionism. It is not a partisan issue – it is getting back to America’s roots.

In my house, music is always playing. It is not uncommon to wake up to the sound of Journey, Tom Petty, or Van Halen. Likewise, no car ride is complete without the classics. At age 10, I could sing every word to nearly every song by Kiss. For me, music has always played a large role in my life. I am a firm believer that music makes the hard times easier and the good times better.
I do not consider myself an expert on relationships. I do however consider myself an expert on breakups. College is weird. We can all agree on that. But “dating” is even weirder.
Growing up, I was very involved in my church and was very passionate about spreading the Word and helping people, but I felt as if there wasn’t enough being done. This was until I found out about a mission project that my youth group went on every year at the beginning of June.
This summer, I worked in Brentwood, Tennessee at Brentwood Country Club as a pool bar tender. In Tennessee, you can be 18 to get your ABC license and work as a bartender. Before I could work at the country club I had to go to an ABC class, which was eight hours long.
One of my favorite parts of summer throughout high school was volunteering at Sawyerville Day Camp, a free camp for kids in Hale County in the black belt of Alabama. The organization has a clear mission.
Column: University of Mississippi offers liberal studies major appealing to those with broad interests
All throughout my life, I have always admired and connected with people. My parents used to always joke about how I had a spark and could easily click with just about anyone.
Column: When deciding to rush in the South, be prepared, don’t stress and believe every word you hear
“Rush is a big deal in the #South.” That statement is something every girl hears when she decides to go to college and join a sorority in the South. As a girl born and raised in a small town in southeast Missouri who decided to attend school at Ole Miss, I took that statement with a grain of salt. I never thought Rush Week would be as intense as everyone said it was.
Column: The Ole Miss Big Event builds relationships in the Lafayette, Oxford and University community
Each year, the city of Oxford prepares itself to become home to several thousand new students. After a short break each summer, the University of Mississippi’s 20,000 students reunite in Oxford. In response to this reunion, many of the city’s well-known qualities return — Jackson Avenue traffic, long restaurant waits, and rowdy nightlife on the Square. These are all too familiar to permanent Oxford residents.
I can vividly remember the first time I listened to the album. I had to have been in middle school, 12 or 13 years old, and my mom was driving my siblings and me to school as she blared the CD throughout the car. We listened to Coldplay’s CDs every day in the car, and with every song, I fell in love with their music.
I had never really considered myself to be an artist. Throughout childhood, I was pretty good at drawing and could color inside the lines, but never did I think I would be where I am today as an artist.
For years, it sat mostly quiet in our den. I ran past it on my way outside to play football, baseball, basketball or soccer. Although my mom occasionally played hymns or Dan Fogelberg songs on it, I was not interested in an old piano. However, my opinion of the old piano began to change during my senior year of high school.
Basketball is easily one of the most entertaining sports in the world. It’s complex, yet simple game play brings excitement in all countries. For me, basketball is one of the most important teachers I have ever had.
Column: I won’t let scoliosis or obstacles steal my dream of playing football for the Ole Miss Rebels
Growing up has always been a challenge for me – from not fitting into high school, to not getting many chances in football. Playing football was probably one of the biggest challenges I had to face. I was smaller than the other guys, I didn’t have any experience, and I got bullied.
If you’ve been an Ole Miss fan for the last 50 or so years, you know the saying “We Are Ole Miss.” And you know that does not mean what you think when you read it. It is the saying we use to describe our way of finding a way to screw up any good thing we have going for us.
Growing up, I was involved in many sports. I played everything from softball to volleyball, cheer to dance, track to soccer, but out of all those, one stood out to me. It was the one sport I couldn’t resist, the greatest game – golf.
