Deep Sea Desperation: turning the oil spill into ironic fun

Aimee Lastrella

January 31, 2011

Every now and then my roommates and our friends decide to call it a night in and have a game night at our apartment. It's usually fun, but lately it has gotten boring. Boring because either we've played all the games before or this game is exactly like that other game, but with just a different name. But...

State of the Union address doesn’t address climate change

Aimee Lastrella

January 27, 2011

I was, like the millions of you out there, glued to my television set during the State of the Union address earlier this week. But there was something missing from President Obama's speech. There was a word that he refrained from using and that word was climate. It was as if not mentioning it made...

More to trash than just waste

Aimee Lastrella

January 24, 2011

So we are back to school. It's a new year and a new semester. Personally, my new year's resolution was to help the world be more green and less wasteful. And to be honest, I feel like I have failed because we've been without a green post in over a month. I have so many eco-friendly ideas and blogs...

Stop being a tree killer

Aimee Lastrella

December 5, 2010

I have one question. Have you been naughty or nice this year? I don't know about you, but I've tried my hardest to be extra good because I have my eye on a few green gifts that were posted a week ago. Can you say "iPad, please?" But no matter how hard I try to be good, I know during this time of...

Centering life’s passion around guitar

Aimee Lastrella

November 24, 2010

Students can credit one teacher in their lifetime for being a great influence on life, but CSUN student Scott Goldbaum says that his journey is based on one of his CSUN professor’s quotes. “My life’s goal is essentially to leave people better than when I found them,” said Goldbaum. “It’s a quote from Dr. Peter Marston, one of my communic...

Spend green on Black Friday and go green

Aimee Lastrella

November 18, 2010

Black Friday is looming its ugly head over our wallets and our inner materialist. I, for one, love shopping. But what I hate is the guilt I feel after thinking about all the damage I did to the world (and my bank account!) after my splurge of purchases. I'm talking about the receipt paper, the plastic...

Fall hair trends for men

Aimee Lastrella

November 15, 2010

There are about 100,000 to 200,000 hairs on your head. Like the season, you want to change the style of the hundreds of thousands of hairs, not the follicle count. So, do you get a haircut or just get a new hairstyle for the fall and winter? Being a guy, there aren’t many options in clothing or in hairstyle. But no matter what you choose,...

Recycling the Halloween hangover

Aimee Lastrella

November 5, 2010

Lots of us either skipped our morning classes or didn't even want to imagine sitting in lectures on Monday morning after this past Halloween weekend. We dressed up, partied hard and woke-up with the largest hangover- Halloween style. But for those who woke-up feeling ill the sight of leftover candy...
