Opinions: Hindsight: Naming the next generation

When I’m older and I have a child, I want his/her name to be something pretty, charming and maybe even old-fashioned. What I won’t do is name my kid after a food or direction or plant or something ridiculous such as North West or Apple Martin. Why on earth would anyone name their child something ...

For the past two years, I've obsessed over the whos, whats, wheres and whens of college and scholarship applications. Now that it’s time to get to work, I am lost in this high-stakes world. Applying for college is like investing in the stock market. I've spent hours on collegeboard.com research...

Escaping life's worries is like jumping into an ice-cold pond on a blazing-hot summer day. Every day after school I look forward to one thing: the farm. After all the geometry proofs and researching the Greek goddess Calypso, I just need some time to relax. I come home, eat some Funyuns, then pack u...

When I think of the word “tweet,” I think of the noise that birds make not a post from someone on Twitter, especially because so many people’s tweets are just noise. I made a Twitter account two years ago, and three months ago I logged out, permanently. Letting everyone know what I’m doing...

In seventh grade I decided not to say the Pledge of Allegiance in Mr. Mark McHale's first hour band class at Wildwood Middle School. I don't know what exactly possessed me that morning, it might have been rebellious but I might have just been too tired. I did stand up with all the other boys in...

Olive. To most people, it's a fruit, but to me it’s the street I spent 30 minutes on the night of Prom. I told my date to get off at the wrong exit, so we had to navigate all through the city in search of the Hyatt. It ended up being fun, driving around and looking at all the sights because we...

In kindergarten, I trusted that my sister would meet me after my class was dismissed and walk me down to Adventure Club, our after-school daycare. She was always there. I never had to sit alone and wait. In elementary school, I trusted my best friend Mel to tell no one that I liked Andy, that quiet...

When my older sister was 13 she became obsessed; Kristin and her friend watched "Pirates of the Carribean" for the first time when it came out in 2003 and fell in love with a very young, English pirate... hard. Orlando Bloom was everything my sister could ever want. He was English, an actor and...

I figured something out. My brain has a capacity to work much harder and much more violently. I just figured out this secret this year and ever since then my inspiration and ideas have heightened tenfold (and no, it's not drugs). My boyfriend lives a good solid 50 minutes away from my house. We se...

Editor prepares for life beyond high school. There is a phrase that rattles the rickety bridge that connects between the time capsule of life so far--my room--nestled in the comforts of my parents' home and the 15 ft x 15 ft dorm room in which I will be squeezing all essentials. The phrase: "I'm...

Opinions: Politically Correct?: YOLO…?

Casey Walker, Society Editor

February 8, 2013

The phrase “YOLO” (you only live once) seems to be fizzing out. Even though the weird kiosks in the mall still sell neon shirts with YOLO in printed in black, I don't hear anyone using YOLO as justification for drinking expired milk anymore. I had almost completely forgotten about the phrase un...

Opinions: Politically Correct?: Adventures in introversion

February 1, 2013

Every day when I arrive home from school I take a fat, quite nap. I rush up to my room barely saying “hi” to my parents and my four cats before I pass out. There is no time for “How was your day?” I am asleep or in a daze by 4:00 p.m. My parents have learned this routine; they don’t think...
