Twenty One Pilots Concert Leaves Fans Far From “Stressed Out”

Attending a concert featuring a favorite artist is a rite of passage for many young people. For me, this rite of passage came in the form of a recent Twenty One Pilots concert. The thrill of seeing a band I have loved since I was a freshman in high school was enhanced by the group’s stunning visual presentation, musical prowess and sincere performance.

Swiftly Growing Up to the Tunes of Taylor

Music, technology and people all change as time goes on. Taylor Swift has arguably been one of the most consistent and well-known female American singer-songwriters of her time, with her work spanning multiple genres of music. Currently, Swift’s newest album, “Midnights,” is listed No. 1 on Billboard for top sales.

Growing up my main form of enjoying music was through my infamous SpongeBob radio and CD player, which was formerly covered in princess stickers. Now the radio hangs onto old sticker residue and dents from all the love it has received. Photo by Autumn Heaton

The Impact of a Timeless Album

The album “?”, by Xxxtentacion had a significant impact on teens across the United States, including me, because of the intriguing songs that worked together to make this a meaningful track-list. There is no better soundtrack to improve your mindset throughout a difficult summer.

Top Five Coffee Shops in St. Louis

College students are always looking for new study spots so I took it upon myself to tour coffee shops in the St. Louis area and determine where MBU students can find their focus as well as a good cup of Joe.

Lattes are made from very finely ground espresso beans, which are then placed in a portafilter (pictured). Hot water seeps through the grounds to pull the shots, which become the base of the latte. Steamed milk is added and poured to form latte art. This photo was for marketing and promoting purposes for the coffee shop La Cosecha Coffee Roasters. Photo by Anna Jeschke

Through Richer, Poorer and Citizenship, this Love Story Spans Nations

As Valentine’s Day approaches, this is a story of true unwavering love, a story that spans nations, time zones, unimaginable challenges and life-changing decisions. With a legitimate marriage of four years and two bachelor’s degrees, my husband was still on the verge of deportation from the United States. What we did to stay together — in America — is a story of unquestionable love and dedication to marriage.

While many people might think that someone from a foreign country marrying someone in the United States of America equates to automatic citizenship, we learned just how difficult the process can be after we fell in love, got married and endured the citizenship process of a lifetime.       Photo by Molly Munoz
