Since the 1800’s, tipping has grown to become a traditional expectation when receiving any type of service.  It all started within the taverns of England, where customers would tip their servers “to insure promptitude.” -- Hence where the word tip originates from. Most customers have grown...

Growing up, I’ve always known I’m invincible. No one told me. I just knew. It’s not a difficult concept to grasp for the human brain. I’m perfect, most people aren’t. In fact, I have yet to find someone that is as perfect as I am. It’s hard living like this sometimes. Anyway, the topic...

I’ve always had inklings of what I loved as long as I can remember. I knew I loved femininity. From strutting in heels as a five-year-old, to going to my junior year Homecoming in drag, I knew the world of lipstick and bubblegum would be by my passion for eternity. A major part in that world of makeu...

“Can I have a raspberry pomegranate rush, please?” asked a Biddeford High School junior Grace Bermeo as she reached in the Aroma Joe's window.  It was around eight in the morning when Grace picked up her first energy drink of the day. For many high school students, picking up an Aroma’s “Rush...

Okay, so before I start this review, I’d just like to make a shout out to the man who decided to recline all the way back in his chair so that my knees were crushed down. You sir, are the worst type of human being. Hello, I’m the Movie Buff, and this month, I will be reviewing the best movie t...

In the events that happened this month - a Trump presidency, riots across the country, a Hillary loss - I’ve needed something to keep my spirits up. With a Trump win keeping the country at a very big low (except the people that voted for him - congratulations to you) I’ll be telling my fans about ...

Welcome back everyone! This month, I’ve decided to address the Kim Kardashian robbery scandal in Paris.

In a month full of all kinds of new, unnecessary horror sequels (looking at you “Ouija 2”), one film stands high above the rest. No, not a new-age horror flick just in time for Halloween, but instead, the 1988 cult classic horror-comedy: “Beetlejuice.” Directed by the legendary Tim Burton...

I’ve always hated the color red. At a younger age, red symbolized everything negative in the world. It represented the blood from the scrapes I would get on my knees from the park, anger, evil, and now my skin. My skin gets very irritated very quickly. The blemishes fire up like Donald Trump every tim...

Fresh Face: “Alba Botanica Night Cream”

Filed under Fresh Face: Product of the Month - Michael Tenney

Over the summer, I hoped my skin would blossom into the perfect airbrushed aesthetic that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid miraculously obtained. However, I still have enough oil on my forehead to make a cake. A customer once noticed my cake making ability due to the oil on my skin while I worked. I ran...
