Binge Watch Guide: Spongebob Squarepants

Oh, Magic Conch, how should I put off getting anything done over break? By watching “Spongebob Squarepants,” of course. Winter Break is the perfect time to turn on a few episodes, eat some Spongebob character-shaped Kraft Macaroni (still the best mac and cheese I’ve ever had) and relive your childhood.

Review: We're here for both One Direction and Justin Bieber

It’s hard being a fangirl. Not only do you know so much about people you will most likely never meet, you’re also wildly defensive about those people and are always ready to read anyone who doesn’t understand why they’re famous. It’s even harder to be apart of two conflicting fandoms. Therefore, Nov.13 was a hard day for Beliebers and Directioners.

New Album Showdown: Justin Bieber vs. One Direction

Five years ago, Justin Bieber and One Direction came out as the biggest teen pop sensations and stole the world’s hearts. However, as the time has passed both have matured into completely new entities, and that’s reflected in their newest music.
