Stop. Squint your eyes. Grab your remote and reverse the movie. Oh, I see it now. The minimal amount of screen time a LGBTQ+ relationship gets in a movie. Do you remember that hint in “Mamma Mia” (spoilers ahead) that Harry was gay after that weird, coded 30 second conversation? Or later, when he...

Butterflies in your stomach? Your palms sweating? Your heart skipping a beat? Really, who came up with these crazy descriptions of stress? Stress isn’t some cliche attribute - yet it is a feeling all of us have experienced. At LHS, we’ve all - or will - feel stress. It may not be a rollercoaster/tarantula/haunted-house...

The 52nd Super Bowl was one of the best I’ve ever seen. The Philadelphia Eagles and the referees, sorry, New England Patriots, made it one of the most enjoyable football games I’ve watched. The stats themself just show how crazy it was. The two teams totalled up for 1151 offensive yards, making...

Teegan Saunders

March 14, 2018

I have always been one of the oldest people in my grade and because of this people tend to ask me about how much freedom I received in my old age.
