Turning dreaded activities into everyday normalities, the aim with my column “Do It Anyway” is to provide insight on why it’s important, based on experience, to do those little things in life nobody really wants to do. To paint a quick picture of myself, I’d say I’m a pretty independen...

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...

The loss of a loved one is inevitable sooner or later. I’m not going to get all into the death topic this time, but I’m talking about the months or even years beforehand. Sure, every process of getting there is different. Sometimes it’s sudden and happens really fast or at a time no one would’ve...

It’s finally getting to be that time of year where coming to school seems to be almost impossible for everyone. The weather is getting nicer, the countdowns till the end of the year are starting, and one wants to be stuck in class all day. Even though you may be watching movies, or having study halls...

Seniors, we have almost made it. 1 month until graduation,  but who’s counting right? This is my last column I will ever write for the newspaper, and the feeling of moving on hasn’t totally sunk in yet. This year had many ups and downs, and a lot of “last first’s” and just plain old “lasts.”...

I find that as I progress through high school, each class that enters as freshmen has become more and more apathetic and desensitized. Don’t misunderstand, every class has their nice and genuine individuals, but overall I’ve seen a gradual decrease in the the overall ability to sympathize and empathize...

I’m not going to sit here and be that person to say “getting an education is important if you want to succeed in life,” because as high school students we hear that all the time. What I will say though is education is the starting point, and as students continue to learn and reason their prospects...

I’m your typical American high schooler, along with being the Vice President of my class, editor of the newspaper and a (reasonably) up-kept student, it's no wonder that I've decided to do my column on how to become involved in your school.
