Every girl dreams of the day they go prom dress shopping, trying on virtually every dress in the store, and seeing the faces of everyone in the store light up. As prom season approaches, so does the season for girls to scurry to find the perfect dress, and more factors than they could imagine come i...

Filed under The Monthly Five - by Lauren Paquet

This month, I decided to honor some throwback songs from some of my favorite artists. It’s always interesting to look back at how their personal styles have changed and observe which ones are still making music and which ones have stopped. Nevertheless, all of these were some of my favorites back in...

For this month’s DIY (do it yourself) project, I made shamrock shakes, since almost everyone goes crazy when McDonald’s brings them back every March. I found this recipe through Pinterest. I used 2 cups of vanilla bean ice cream, 1 cup of heavy cream, ⅓ cup of milk (it doesn’t matter what kind...

“Memes, you will never find a more wretched hive of humor and absurdity. We must be cautious.” By paraphrasing Obi Wan Kenobi’s famous quote in Star Wars one can describe how outsiders often view the internet and its native “memers”; foreign and unfamiliar they intimidate the novice. Desp...

Due to surprisingly warm weather this year, winter sports enthusiasts experienced short and lackluster seasons for their favorite outdoor winter sports. Sports such as skiing, ice fishing, and snowboarding had shorter seasons than usual this winter. With the warm spells that struck Maine this ye...

Following not far behind 2013’s cash-grab musical hit that was “Frozen,” comes a delightful tale about talking animals in a civilized society. Of course, by a delightful tale I mean a dark animated film about racism, sexism, and prejudice all set to a colorful background of talking animals. Sounds lik...

I finally found a product I hate more than the joke that has become Donald Trump. I love when I find something I hate. It’s a new thing to talk about, to tell people not to buy it, to ruin the name brand. In this case, I generally like the brand. However, this product is worse than the time I was i...

As he takes his first step out of the building, where he’s spent the past 18 miserable years of his life, the first breeze of freedom brushes over his worn out face. He appears rough and tired, but the glowing smile on his face cancels out all the lines he gained while locked up. He’s a free man, u...

A well known factor of high school life is video games, at BHS not only do students play video games, but teachers do too. Given that video games haven’t been looked kindly upon by schools because of the possible distractions and addiction that can come from playing them, but that doesn’t stop...

For this month’s DIY (do it yourself), I will be doing a temporary tattoo that supposedly lasts longer and uses sharpies instead of the normal sticky film that you put on your skin. All the materials I used were baby powder, hairspray, and sharpies, which costed less than $10. The first thing I...

This month brought us some amazing music, and that made it extremely hard to choose only five songs. From Drake to Rihanna to Beyoncé (my mom), it proved to be a very entertaining month for the music industry. Kanye West also dropped his much awaited album this month, “The Life of Pablo,” but s...
