Welcome to my second column in this publication. I hope some of you returned because you liked my writing, and not just because you want to flatter my father on Facebook by viewing his posts.

Always late

April 8
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...

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...

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...

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.

Over April vacation in the eighth grade, my best friend and I went to New York City with her family for her cousin’s college graduation. While we were in the Big Apple, I encountered a weird reaction to something I had put on my face. I will admit I wore way too much make up for a 13-14 year old and...
