    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville. You can complain that, “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a sub-par 3-4-1 Long Island at Cantina every night, or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore. We’ve helped you survive your road trips and spring break. ...

    The Perks of Living like a Wallflower

    After a long day of classes, work and dealing with the unforeseen circumstances of the universe, nothing draws me in like the promise of returning home. My apartment provides me with a level of serenity normally reserved to aromatherapy candles and yoga on a mountain top. But I’m not exaggerating. I literally breathe easier the moment I walk through my door, and ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken it upon ourselves ...

    Lilly Pulitzer Hits Target And Disappoints

    This is a guest post by TampaBayScene’s Bianca Lopez. If you would have told me about Lilly Pulitzer for Target just a short year ago, I would have responded with a quizzical brow. No, I don’t see my reaction as being blasphemous. No, I wouldn’t have pictured Lilly herself rolling in her perfectly manicured grave. It’s because I simply had no idea ...

    My Body by Jimmie

    “Push yourself,” Jimmie says as he adjusts his tattered navy blue Tri Delt baseball cap. I try to count each droplet of sweat as it drips off my face and onto the speckled black floors of Alter Ego fitness — anything to keep my mind off of the burn in my rubbery muscles and trembling torso. I hold myself in what feels ...

    On The Issues: Ted Cruz

    Politics are confusing. With a playing field this big, it’s hard to know where each of the 2016 presidential candidates stands on the issues. But the choices these rich old people make directly impact the country we live in, so it’s important to be informed about who you’ll vote for when the election rolls around in November of 2016.

    A Guide to Apartment Hunting Like a Pro

    Leasing an apartment can be a stressful ordeal. Oftentimes you’re pressured into “signing on the dotted line” before you even have a handle on what you’re signing up for. There are promotional tactics, overbearing sales associates looking for a hefty commission check, confusing paperwork chock full of legal jargon, and even more hearsay from disgruntled tenants.
