During my sophomore year of high school, in the heat of the COVID-19 pandemic, I ventured out on an investigative search in the name of journalism. I went to Trader Joes, spent too much money, and then reviewed everything I bought in a Dig Article. You can read the old version here, but that was so 2021. Now, as a senior, I’m headed back to the old Joe’s for round 2.

It’s that time of year again people! The aroma of 3-cheese baked mac, cornbread glazed with warm honey, and most importantly, the Big Daddy of all thanksgiving meals, the turkey. I could write a whole article on why I believe ham is a stronger Thanksgiving main attraction than turkey, but that is not what this article is about. Today I bring to you what Thanksgiving is like within the walls of a Nigerian home. For context, both of my parents immigrated from a small village in Southeast, Nigeria called Alayi. This is a little insight to how the crossaction of both American culture and Nigerian traditions shape our Thanksgiving.

Taylor Swift’s tenth studio album was released at midnight EST and nine pm PST. Naturally, I am writing about it, as I do with any major release the artist does. Midnights had a stir of excitement preceding its release on the 21st of October, and I decided to meet with some of OES’s biggest fans to get an inside look into their reactions to the album.
