New Year’s Eve: a stress-free holiday meant for nothing more than throwing a party to ring in the New Year. Yet you managed to get roped into going to your mom’s for New Year’s Eve, which means (you guessed it!) another night attempting to dodge Aunt Betty and her annoyingly condescending remarks. But you and I both know you won’t be able to avoid her all night, especially since she is on a mission to guilt you since you haven’t come to the family events since last Christmas. Therefore, I have put it upon myself to help you out and offer up some hints as what to say when she comes barging through the front door, wanting to know all about your lucrative prostitution business, that private island your billionaire fiancé bought you, and exactly WHY hasn’t she received her ‘save the date’ yet. You’re welcome.

For many college students, there is no clear indicator for what defines terrorism. This is common for many in the United States, since there is no clear indicator for what actions or affiliations may be considered terrorism. Neither the United States government nor the legal system has a universal agreement on the definitions of terrorism, with many agencies and departments using different definitions. Although just a word, it holds a powerful connection to many Americans, often associated with the enemy organizations the United States has fought for decades, such as Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the Taliban.
