A little lesson on forgiveness

It didn’t hit me until December 3rd. It didn’t sink in until it was too late. I thought I would never forgive myself for not saying goodbye. As my high school career comes to a close, a lot of things have happened in such a short amount of time. Whether or not I’m ready for it, change is h...

This past Mother’s Day brought about all of the usual holiday antics to my family: the family dinner at my Omi’s (my grandmother), aunts, uncles, and cousins bonding between bites, and of course - the fighting. However, this debate was one more heavy than the usual topics of discussion (religion,...

The binge

It started as something so innocent something that was only supposed to last about 40 minutes, but turned into an obsession. It was like any other day after school, after my homework was (almost) done and I wandered downstairs into the kitchen for something to eat. My motivation to finish my homework had now ...

Relationships in the life of a teenager

High school relationships are either a hit or a miss. By this I mean that high school relationships either end in a partner or friend for life, or a fiery explosion of emotions and dismay. In high school, there's a fine line that defines a “relationship”. It’s hard to determine who exactly i...

What's considered the “norm” nowadays is a subject that I want to share my opinion of: divorce. As a child of divorce I have seen first-hand the pain and suffering caused by the split of a family. This topic that was once rarely heard of has become so common that if you go through your neighborho...

In this month’s edition of “Do It Anyway,” my goal is to make you like saving money. Well, maybe not like, but you definitely won’t hate it. Money seems to be a huge issue these days. Someone’s always either complaining about not having enough or hating people who do. Although money isn’t ...

Today my column ponders a philosophical question in a humorous way, perfectly publishable except for a refere...

Always late

Filed under Opinion

Being late is a common thing for me. Almost all of us experience being late at least once or twice, but I am almost always late. Going to school, practices, really anything I have planned, I will probably be at least a couple minutes late. Unless I have someone with me pushing me out the door, I will...

Filed under Millenial Manifesto - Meg Friel

As I approach my senior year as well as my 17th birthday, I can’t help but reflect on the years of my high school’s past. I started my adventure, that is, high school, as a mild and meek freshman. I wasn’t scared, despite the “scared freshman” cliché, but more so optimistic. Freshman yea...

When mentioning Easter, most people think of colorful eggs, bunnies, baskets, and pastel colors, but that’s not the case for me. When Easter comes to mind, I see dinner at my Memere and Pepere’s house surrounded by family. Holidays are supposed to bring everyone together to have a good time sharing me...
