Pass (Up) the Gravy

Pass (Up) the Gravy

Riley Kelley

November 27, 2017

   As a child, when I walked into my Uncle Donnie’s house on Thanksgiving Day, I would breeze past the relatives whom I hadn’t seen in months and go straight for the dessert table. My sister and I would admire the perfectly baked crusts on the pumpkin pie and the flawless consistency of the whip...

Pro Protest

Pro Protest

Teegan Saunders

October 29, 2017

   As the season of spooks approaches, I have come to the conclusion that ghouls and ghosts are not the only scare waiting in the night for me. One of the most frightening things is the debate about whether or not I should be allowed to exercise my right to protest. I don’t feel like whether I stand...

Too Busy For A Clever Title

Jenna Spence

   If I didn’t have a pun-tastic Instagram caption or if a certain someone didn’t see my Snapchat story, I used to go crazy with paranoia. I have a feeling that I am not alone on this, either. I probably sound like a grandma, using the “teenagers these days” speech, but I feel as though we spend way ...

   When I was growing up, there was a family in my neighborhood who turned their backyard into a breeding ground for my nightmares once every year.

Chiefs Kingdom

  The Chiefs are not my number one team (let’s go Chicago), but they are my number two. So I had to cheer for them when they played the Patriots, who I despise almost as much as the Packers. The Chiefs had a great comeback, starting the second half down 27-21.    As I watched the game, I saw how ...

Teegan Saunders

October 1, 2017

  I thought senior year would be much scarier, but so far it has been great. Just kidding. The past month has been a whirlwind of drama, last minute studying and an abundance of herbal tea.    I went into this school year with the intent of buckling down and keeping my grades up for one final ego boost...

This Doesn’t Happen To Me

Jenna Spence

The last day that I would be truly happy for a while was at the beginning of August. I just celebrated my 18th birthday. Late July I had to deal with helping a close friend through a problem, and by the time it was my birthday, things were starting to go back to normal.The next few days, everything to...

Falling into the Future

Falling into the Future

Riley Kelley

September 29, 2017

For the past few weeks, every venture into the Twitterverse has launched me into a full length summary of every little redeeming quality the fall season has to offer. I am constantly bombarded by pictures of pumpkin patches, chunky knit sweaters and, my personal favorite, an endlessly entertaining video...
