Tuesday I went to my first day of track/pole vaulting practice. I ran more than I have for the past six  months combined. And that night, I was so tired that I passed out at 10:30 p.m. and slept until 6:30 a.m. That's late for me. My muscles are aching, but I don't mind at all because it dawned on m...

Two weeks ago I walked into the girl's bathroom in the science hallway. (I know right, that's a good way to start a column) I was surprised to find at least 20 Post-it notes stuck all over the place. They read: "You were created to be an original, Don't be a copy." "Love people for their imperfecti...

Okay, let me begin this by saying that my mother is a godly woman, she brought me into this world (and she could definitely take me out) and I love her to pieces. And mayyyybe I was slightly unfair towards her in my last column. Don't get me wrong, my mother and I definitely have our fighting phases,...

For the past two weeks, my mother and I have not been on the same page. We are constantly butting heads and arguing over e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. I'm not kidding. Everything. For example, I will go in the kitchen, get out a pot, fill it with water and put it on the stove to boil water to make mac'n'...

This morning while I was listening to 93.7 The Bull on the radio, I heard Miranda Lambert's new song, "Automatic." In the song, Lambert mentions that contacting someone else meant writing a letter and sending it to them, then waiting three days until they receive it. That was back when our parents wer...

I was trolling the news for the inspiration for my next column when I found it. Hundreds of snakes, dead, dying and a few living were found abandoned in William Buchman's home in Santa Ana, California, according to CNN.com. The article goes on to explain that neighbors complained of a horrible stench coming from Buchman's house. Police obtained a search warrant, raided the home, and found the hundreds...

I've been thinking a lot about taking risks lately. My editor keeps pushing me outside my teenage Eureka experience. Apparently, I have deeper insight beyond how I need to stop procrastinating or if leggings are pants. My editor claims the world is bigger than that. Every writing conference we have is...

A man was shot and killed in a Florida movie theatre, Jan. 13. Why? For texting his daughter during the movie previews. The man was killed by a retired police officer, according to CNN.com. Situations like these make me terrified of our world. And I am not the only one who is scared. I can't walk more than two miles away from my home with...

One reporter hits three light spectacles for the sake of the readership. Hub reviews rate on a five-point scale. A five rating should not be missed, and a one rating is lame. Tilles Park: Winter Wonderland The Winter Wonderland is a spectacular display filled with a vast variety of lights i...

December 12, 2013

When I was little, civility was something I knew of and practiced. I was always told to "be polite, and use your manners." "Please" and "thank you" started and ended every request I made.  Sadly, I'm realizing that not everyone was raised that way. Either that or they've forgotten what civility is...

There are only two moods that I possess: Life is wonderful. Life is a waste of time. Those may be dramatic, but hey, I'm being honest. I'm either having a really good day or a really bad day. There's no in between. We all have those days that just don't go our way. I won't do well on a q...

Destroy Rockwood Confessions, please. I know you all are familiar with or have heard of Rockwood Confessions on Twitter. If you haven't, here's an explanation: people from a Rockwood school send in offensive tweets about people from another Rockwood school to an anonymous person who runs the accoun...
