How to make a small town fun

September 19, 2019

In big cities tall buildings break through the clouds. Concerts and festivals light up the city every weekend. Yellow taxis cruise down the street, not making it far due to severe traffic. Texarkana, on the other hand, doesn’t have much of that. It can be difficult to make plans with you friends whe...

It’s February, and everyone around you is going on about their plans for Valentine’s Day. They talk about their significant others and how they just can’t wait for Feb. 14. However, you’re all forgetting the most spectacular day of the year: Galentine’s Day. Galentine’s is the one day of...

The camp left in me

August 24, 2015

Everyone loves summer. Go to the beach for a week, soak up the sun and get away from the “real world” for a little while. Pack up your bags, grab a tent and go camping for a few days to “disconnect”. It’s an escape. But to me, these ordinary vacations are far from my idea of an escape. F...

February 18, 2015

Four minds, four hearts and four bonds that could never be broken. A memory that will never fade from their minds.
