No Victory Dancing Allowed

No Victory Dancing Allowed

Kasey Allshouse

February 26, 2015


Filed under Opinion

Dim lights, loud music and swish of dresses followed by the shouting voices that can barely be understood as the lyrics to one of your favorite songs. The sweat and heat radiate off of the dancing bodies in the gym and the aching feet and droopy eyes as you dance the night away, leaving you hungry and...

   You are never going to be prepared for everything that life throws at you. This is one of the harsh but true lessons I have learned in my 17 years. Now that all I have is a single high school semester looming over me before college, this lesson is proving to be more true than ever. I’m not the ste...

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

Other than being the worst driver known to mankind, I have another huge flaw; for the longest time I trusted the snap judgments I made about people and thought them to be true. Luckily through my experiences with the Missouri Association of Student Councils or MASC, I’ve learned to look past the cover...

Reassured at Red Robin

Since the end of sophomore year, I’ve worked at the Red Robin here in Liberty and I’ve loved [almost] every minute of it. I started there as a host when I was 16 and I’m shocked at how the time has flown by. Over winter break, I did what I’d been talking about doing for months: I became a...

Who else recalls those really cute and cheesy 80’s movies where the good guy gets the pretty girl during their senior year of high school and they dance the night away at one of the school dances? I would completely love for that to happen to me. Although sadly, I don’t think Andrew McCarthy will...

Do New Year’s Resolutions really benefit?

Do New Year’s Resolutions really benefit?

February 25, 2015

Whether it’s dieting, a new outlook on life, or plans to embark on a trip, the Bell Staff agrees that we have all made a New Years Resolution at some point in our lives. The question is, does making a New Years Resolution benefit a person throughout the entire year? In most cases, maintaining a New...

It always shocks me how fast December approaches. Yet here we are again, about to close out the most recent chapter of our lives known as 2014. I’d say this year has been a pretty big one for me. My little brother turned one, I got accepted into Missouri State and began my fourth and final year...

Should we let fear control our lives?

   Just when we thought we were safe, Paris slapped us all in the face. The news about the attacks spread like lightning across the globe and with it spread a fresh punch of terror. There are some who have this fear confronting them right outside their front door while there are others who experience t...

Being totally frank, I love New Years Eve. Yeah sure, Christmas is awesome because of presents and Santa, but there is something uniquely special about New Years. It’s a restart, but also a time for each person to set their tone for the coming year. For me, New Years has always meant being in the...

When I think of the holiday season, the images that pop into my mind are Christmas trees, stockings, family and of course, food. I think of happy things like Buddy the elf eating maple syrup and snowball fights. It seems as though it would be absolutely impossible to be in a bad mood this time of year,...
