Music review: Influence

When people think of rappers, they generally think of celebrities with money to burn, and egoes larger than the pants they sag. They do not think of an engineering student with physics homework to do and floor event to plan, but that is Brandon Gill. As a mining engineering major, an RA in Bradford, and the rapper of the band Influence, Gill is a very active student. He started rapping when he was 17 and at the request of some friends compiled a mix tape called “6 Days ‘Til Summer.” In September he released a second mix tape called “Constructing My Mind.”

The Knight, the Seer and the Child: Chapter 11, Miranda

Miranda’s legs locked as she jerked herself awake from the cloudy dream. Rubbing away the last remnants of sleep from her eyes, she turned her gaze to her bedroom window. Outside the sun still slept somewhere beneath the horizon. Soft moonlight spilled through the window, casting shadows throughout the room. She kicked at the blankets tangled around her legs, swung them off the bed and sat with her face in her hands. Sweat blanketed her brow. She stood and walked over to the basin of water, splashing cold water in her face.
