Mr. Awk Ward

By Trisha Leong We’ve all had that “Oh my god what do I do now” moment. Enduring long and cringy silences, explaining a joke to a bunch of people who didn’t get it (and worse, having them still not understand), high-fives left unnoticed, your crush standing beside you as you grapple for something - no, anything! - to say, only to later regret what just came tumbling out of your cheeseburger-filled mouth… Awkwardness is real.

Still, if she didn’t get that sweet sweet 80 percent attendance, she wouldn’t even have the opportunity to flunk out of Physics. Lost in thought, she dumped her bag on her seat and was suddenly and rudely acquainted with someone’s butt on her desk. “Excuse me,” she said to the butt in question. “Hey,” the owner of the butt said. He looked vaguely hungover, and he was dressed in a varsity jacket and skinny jeans. Which was interesting, because their college didn’t have sports teams with varsity jackets, which meant he had possibly acquired......

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT

Written by Fajar binti Benjamin TOM CRUISE. Tom Cruise is an honest-to-God psychopath, there's no denying it. But goddamn if he doesn't frickin’ go for it. Unfortunately, the first and only other Mission Impossible movie I've been subjected to is the second one, and it was so god-awful bad that the idea of seeing another one was incomprehensible to me. A job is a job though, so I went into this movie with all my cringe shields up, prepared to tear it a new one...

You never did.

If Life Were A Movie

By Alexandra Goh We all love movies. Whether it is a nerve-wracking horror movie, or a colorful eye-popping musical film, all of them possess the same aspects. These include key elements such as actors, plot, screenplay, visuals, themes, audio, special effects and other miscellaneous details. Thus, have you ever wondered how your very own life would be like if it were portrayed as a movie? Or if everything in life, was generally morphed into a movie-like atmosphere?
