I really love food… like a lot. A lot a lot. This makes it easy for me to think of my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. There’s turkey, mashed potatoes and so much bread and gravy on everything. Just thinking about the spread we have every year is making me reach for my lunch right now. For Thanksgiving thi...

There are an infinite amount of ways to communicate with each other. Countless languages, letters, symbols, texts, “DMs” and codes are all used to let one person share the thoughts they have in their head with someone else. Dialect changes from one region to another and creates diversity in culture. I...

Twitter is an easy distraction from the whirlwind of assignments given every day to students, which is (un)conveniently not blocked on school computers.

Who runs the country? Voters! Who runs the country? Voters, including 18-year-olds! Every single person in the world has an opinion, however, not every single person in the world is able to make their opinion heard. American citizens run this country. How do Americans run it?

What scares you? What is it that makes your heart race and your nerves go on edge as you fill with paranoia? I have never been easily shaken up but as a young kid I would’ve had a list of things from creepy clowns to talking dolls to answer that question. Once I was older, I grew out of those fear...

I’ve been going to the same church for about six years now. I have loved almost every part of it, from the music, to the people and the sermons.

Of course records will be broken. As we sat in our elementary school classes watching the inauguration of President Barack Obama, we were watching history be made. Now this election isn’t quite the same but there is a chance for a female to be president. That would be a first in America. Although this...

Everyone has had their “crying at a Taylor Swift concert” moment. For me, that moment was literally me, crying at a Taylor Swift concert. This is not something I am proud of and definitely not something I thought I would be sharing with all of you anytime soon. I cry under two different circumstances...

Filed under Opinion

People like to judge other people. A lot. I’ve learned people judge you for things you do and clothes you wear. It starts around second grade and doesn’t ever stop, even once you hit senior year and expect people to grow up. It’s taken me a long time to not care what people think about my appe...

It’s that time of year again. The time of year where money is spent on everything from sparkly dresses to corsages to fancy dinners. Homecoming is a time of year where people have high price tags to consider, especially when attending the dance with a date. When comparing traditional values and mo...
