High school worries

One day I’m hoping a boy will pass me a note during nap time, and the next, I’m taking a three hour test that could give me credit hours in the college I might attend. I’m a junior in high school. I’m 17 years old. I don’t know what I want to do or be for the rest of my life. Your career becomes your label. By my senior...

Upon arriving to school Sept. 11, students can only expect to spend the day remembering and honoring those who perished on that fateful day in 2001. However, this year was a little different. The Pledge of Allegiance and the moment of silence that are usually announced at the beginning of first period were seemingly neglected. First...

Death with Dignity is morally right

Citizens living in the state of Arkansas cannot be legally prescribed drugs of a lethal dose. If diagnosed with a terminal illness with a maximum date of living, you do not have the choice of ending your own life. I strongly disagree with this case. In other states such as Oregon, Washington, Vermont and Montana (only with...

Elliot Rodgers Drops Hate on Women

We are in the age of equality for people of all races, age, gender, and sexuality; however, women seem to continue to get pushed to the side when it comes to the way we’re treated and viewed. I’m by all means saying I’m a feminist, in the sense that I believe that women and men should be treated equally in all aspects,...

Making Waves: Regrets

Regrets. Every teen has them.  Seems like this past couple of weeks, I’ve done nothing but actions that I regret immensely within the next 2 or 3 days. Be it losing the flash drive that contains every work I’ve ever written since high school started (something more valuable than my phone, might I add); slacking off...

In recent news, the Girl Scouts of America retweeted a tweet made by the Huffington Post, regarding who the 2013 Woman of the Year should be.

As I walk through the unfamiliar hallways of my new school I feel my anxiety rising and my palms sweat as I approach the classroom that I am destined to reside in for the next two and a half months of my fourth grade career. The friendly office lady opens the door and my teacher is waiting to meet me at the door. As she introduces...

Can I get fries with that?: What’s up with those lefties?

Imagine having to use brute force to turn a can opener, or hardly ever being able to cut a straight line with scissors. Oh yeah, we’re talking about being left-handed. Sure, I feel special, being in the approximately 10% of left-handers in the world’s population,  who wouldn't? But boy does it come with its advantages...

I wish I could predict the future. I guess you could say that would be the superpower I would want if someone had posed me such a clichéd question. But is it really a superpower? Isn’t a superpower something no mortal can have? Are there not people who can? Or is it all an extended case of a time traveler’s déjà vu? I...

Masquerade creates mystery The idea of a masquerade prom is very intriguing. Imagine everyone dressed in gorgeous gowns and tuxedos but their identities are hidden. The night would be full of mystery and romance as people who would never approach others gain confidence in the false identity of the mask. People who would never ...
