The other day, I ventured of off my small, midwestern college campus to a local coffee shop for a good cup of tea and a big muffin to satisfy my craving for carbs. While in line, and then later sitting down, I noticed a handsome fellow looking at me and smiling ever so often. I would smile back, he would look away (you know how that whole thing works). I couldn’t help but think I should go up and chat with him because that’s what my weekly planner said I should do.

If you were watching your nightly news in 2003, you may have heard Brian Williams describe a helicopter trip over Iraq he was a part of. If you were still paying attention in 2008, you may have noticed that he mentioned this trip again.
Williams described flying in a helicopter over Iraq.
But if you were watching Letterman in 2013, or your television just a few weeks ago, you got a different version of the same story.
Williams’ story changed from flying in a helicopter, to flying in a helicopter that was hit by a grenade. There was, in fact, a helicopter hit by a grenade that day, but it was flying an hour ahead of the helicopter Williams was on.
If you’re just tuning in to the whole fiasco, you’re probably wondering why Brian Williams is suddenly confused as to which helicopter he was in. After all, he did have the story straight for the first ten years.

Last week I made eggs in a coffee mug. The week before, I had made French toast in that same mug.
They were both so successful that I was actually starting to believe Pinterest’s idea that everything is better microwaved and in a coffee cup.
That is, until this week. It was my roommate’s birthday, and she requested a strawberries and cream mug cake recipe she found on the Internet.
Yes, I finally got to make a mug cake.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
We’ve all heard it. Have you seen it in action?
If you’ve seen either of the fervid seasons of House of Cards, you have.
This show focuses on the story of Frank Underwood as he fulfills every wondering child’s dreams of getting whatever he wants.

You may have heard that Drake is part of a new online list of the “25 Most Dangerous Colleges.”
I’m writing to let you know that the publishers admitted that they identified an error in the analysis of the data used in their report.
This resulted in an incorrect ranking of dangerous colleges in the United States.
They confirmed that Drake should not have appeared on the list.

Considering that last year Ellen gave out pizza at the Oscars, Neil Patrick Harris had some big shoes to fill for his performance Sunday night. The show had some very memorable moments though, from his opening song with Anna Kendrick and Jack Black, to Lady Gaga wowing everyone with a stunning performance of a medley of “The Sound of Music” songs in honor of the movie’s 50th anniversary, and a Julia Andrews cameo to go along with it.

As a pharmacy technician, student and now pharmacist intern, I commonly see individuals with a drug addiction.
Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen (HCP) is prescribed more than any other medication.
This drug, commonly used to treat pain, beats out other frequently prescribed drugs by nearly 40 million prescriptions a year.
In 2012, one HCP prescription was written for every 2.3 men, women and children in the United States.
The problem with prescribing this specific medication is that while it is most effective in the treatment of pain, it is also one of the most addictive prescription drugs.
