Working hard

This school year has completely flown by. As I’m preparing for finals, I’m thinking back on this year, and all of the memories I have made just made me realize how fast it’s all gone by. Realizing that the end of volleyball season was about six months ago is crazy to think about. It’s also crazy...

Another year has almost come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the memories won’t last. That is my sentence to wrap up the end of this school year. Sure, it is just my sophomore year, but I still feel as though things are coming to an end. This year has been a year of change, some for the good and ...

Saying goodbye is something no one likes to do whether you are saying goodbye to a dying family member or high school seniors, no one enjoys this experience. Going into my freshman year, I became friends with many seniors through cheering. We became great friends, and soon we were like family. In this m...

At times I can be organized and know exactly where everything is, but the majority of the time I'm scrambling trying to find everything. Being organized all the time is definitely a skill I need to work on, and staying organized is a commitment I need to make. I’m somewhat organized but in my own...

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...

The destination of the American Dream

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

Filed under Living Like Lydia - Lydia Gordon

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

Megan Friel, Editor in Chief

Filed under Millenial Manifesto - Meg Friel

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 ...
