Pokemon GOne!

November 10, 2016

So I ran into a stop sign again. And, yes, I was looking at my phone, but this time it was for a good reason — I was about to catch a Pikachu. I didn’t end up catching it, but I did catch a bloody nose and a giant pole mark across my face. I was really excited about that Pokémon. Anyway, if you...

Jail Break

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman’s (or man’s) rape is her own fault. That’s probably what the judge of the People v Brock Allen Turner, or, as it is more commonly recognized, the Stanford Rape Case, thinks anyway. On Jan.18, 2015, two bikers spotted a white, male student sexually...

The Math Problem

The Math Problem

Aura Carlson, Co-Editor-and-Chief

October 20, 2016

We have a problem — a math problem. The choice students have to make when choosing between Pre-Calculus Honors and Pre-Calculus. The students who don’t enjoy math are not the only ones having a hard time trying to solve this problem. Consider these two sides. You are a left-brained person who thinks...

Feel the Bern

Feel the Bern

June 5, 2016

The morning was cloudy and cold, but I was feeling the Bern. When we arrived at the rally, we could see that the line was stretching all the way down the street, but, fortunately, the Young Progressives Club had a spot in line saved for us. We had sophomore Clay Rodgers to thank for that. But, braving the line was...

The Masks We Wear

The Masks We Wear

April 11, 2016

When I was seven years old, after I cut my hair giving myself some particularly uneven bangs, I sneaked into my mother’s makeup drawer to scribble red lipstick on nearly half of my face. I wanted to be a big girl. At seven, I clearly hadn’t mastered the concept of coloring in between the lines...

Do We Still “Like” Instagram?

Do We Still “Like” Instagram?

February 1, 2016

So my mom tried to follow me on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I kind of had to accept her request. I mean, what else was I supposed to do? I would have never heard the end of it if I hadn’t. So, I let her follow me. But not before I went and changed every comment and erased every picture...

Seven Things I Hate

There’s a lot of things that are good in this world. But there’s also a lot of things that are terrible. And those are obvious. Today, let’s talk about the little things. To be more specific, all the little things I hate in this world. A lot of people hate spiders. I’m one of those people. I can...

Five Creative Study Tricks

Five Creative Study Tricks

January 19, 2016

We all hate studying. It takes up a lot of time, it’s boring, and you’re just relearning stuff you’ve already learned. Not to mention, most of time, you blank and just forget everything (most of the time around three minutes before the exam starts). Which is why I have compiled this list of fi...

The Power of Colors

The Power of Colors

November 20, 2015

Is it the color itself that influences emotions, or is it the reputation society has given them that has impacted the essence of colors and their meanings? There is no escaping the world of color. It is everywhere. Each color is associated with an emotion and is manipulated in nearly every aspect of...

Flip or Swipe?

November 16, 2015

Get ready to kiss your local bookstore goodbye! With the creation of new sites, apps, and tablets like iBooks, Audible, Kindles, and iPads, the need for paper books has been virtually eradicated. But is this really a good thing? Are we all on the same page? Apparently not. Because, according to...

Trump: Man Of America

“You’re fired,” are the words that disqualify contestants on reality game show, “Celebrity Apprentice.” The object of the game is to navigate a job interview and attain employment at a multi-million dollar corporation. For seven years, it was hosted by none other than billionaire Donald Trump....
