How to get through the semester with a challenging professor

You have probably had your fair share of mean bosses, crappy coworkers and slacking friends.

When you get to college you will hear a lot about bad professors. Your one friend’s professor assigns too much homework. Another professor is a hard grader and no one ever gets an A.

Even in high school I had teachers I didn’t love. That doesn’t change in college. Instead of complaining about the professor that gave me an unfair grade or in accounting how I have three assignments due during the school week, let me tell you tips on how to get through the semester while having a bad professor.

Robert Pattinson is the Darker Knight

As the highly anticipated 2022 DC blockbuster finally made its premier, people haven’t stopped raving about the darkest reboot yet of a beloved American superhero in Matt Reeves’  “The Batman.” This newest addition to the ever-expanding superhero genre tops all of the other Batman movies through stunning cinematography, an edgy soundtrack and booming scenes that push the comfort levels of its audience, incomparable to Nolan’s “The Dark Knight.” The darkness in Reeves’ version mirrors that of Todd Phillips’ 2019 “Joker” for its deeply-rooted commentary on crime and mental illness in an especially corrupted and grungy Gotham City.

FKA Twigs is reborn with ‘Caprisongs’

English singer-songwriter FKA Twigs is on the upswing with her new mixtape, “Caprisongs.” This is her first release since 2019, and after going through multiple public breakups, she’s reclaiming her sound and empowering herself through song.

Her previous release was her second studio album, “Magdalene.” It was moving, with every song was filled with her then-present emotion. She wrote this while she was in a dark time, and it was obvious in the tone of that album. When comparing these two, it’s obvious Twigs is in a much better place in her life now and that’s reflected in her most recent release.
