Social media’s desensitizing effect

Social media's desensitizing effect
There is a way to create a more sensitive generation, and it all depends on how teens choose to use social media.
April 19, 2015

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,...

Our school, our decision, right?
My opinion of why students should be included in major decisions made at BHS.
March 20, 2015

High school can seem like merely a joke to many adults; they see it as a time of no real importance aside from the cliché idea that “high school is where you find yourself.” But to teenagers, there...

The new college investment

How college tuition is ruining our generation's ability to succeed.

I think we all know that college has become more than an investment in our education, rather it has become an investment that we’ll be paying off for the rest of your life. For some of use, our loans...

Biddeford athletics need more support

How we can save BHS athletics by simply going to support out teams as much as possible.
January 15, 2015

The confliction and contradiction that is senior year

November 26, 2014

Senior year is one big pot of conflicting emotions. It’s the end of an era, a transition in about every possible aspect of one’s being, and the start of a new life all in a nine month span. We come...

A glimpse into the Editor’s Mind

September 19, 2014

Competition is a funny thing, really. It’s all around us everyday–the need to get the better grade, the excitement that comes with winning a football game, or the selectiveness of colleges and jobs–yet...

A glimpse into the Editor’s mind

How Biddeford's tradition to hold traditions blinds us.
June 12, 2014

I have to say, if you would’ve asked me a week ago how I felt about the changes to graduation, I would’ve probably went on a rage about traditions and how we can’t change them. I think that’s how...

The teenage generation has become more than just tech savvy.
May 29, 2014

Almost all stereotypes that adults hold over teenagers I disagree with, because I don’t think that stereotypes capture all of the population, just a small, yet influential group. But in the case of our...
