Who are you, really? There are two things that can, and will, eternally categorize you: Xbox or PlayStation. Each of these gaming systems have their own perks, but which one is truly the superior system?   Let's get down to the basics of the PlayStation. Created by Sony, PlayStation was first released in 1994. Sony was originally partnered with Nintendo, but when they backed out of the partnership, PlayStation lived on as Sony's brainchild. Sony...

High school is a melting pot for ideas and phrases. An original thought does not seem to exist, students adopt others' phrases and they not only stick, but spread like wildfire.   Inspired by social media, a few things stood out to me that students are definitely tired of hearing.   "No offense" or "Not to be rude" is always followed by a rude or offensive commen...

Have you ever seen a group of fish? Have you ever seen a group of fishes? Have you ever seen a gaggle of geese? What about a flock of Geese? These are all technically correct plurals; most just have more common household uses. There are many different plurals that confuse most people as they try to...

Our lives are a series of moments, and whether those be moments of laughter, sorrow, pride, or regret, they all have an indisputable effect on the kind of people we are and the people we will become.   Now, unfortunately, we live in an age where all of these moments, both good and bad, but especially bad, are cap...

  The popping of the tiny crystals that sizzle your tongue, the sweet chocolate that melts in your mouth, the paper that gets stuck to your starbursts when opened. Wait. One of these things is not like the other.  Now-a-days it seems like Halloween candy that is actually good has managed to leave the candy bowls from houses ev...

My heart is heavy and my mind cannot even begin to piece together its thoughts. A few weeks ago the largest mass shooting to date in U.S. history took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, and my whole being aches for the victims and their families. After large tragedies such as this one it always poses questions...

  The thrill of dawning your costume, rushing out with your family, and going door to door saying that old phrase “Trick or Treat?” These are the times that we had enjoyed, being out there in the open wearing our costumes and enjoying the fresh air with the enticing scent of candy in...

Sitting at the lunch table, crowding around in those rigid chairs, shoveling spoonful after spoonful of food into your mouth, and keeping up with Brenda's taboos of the day can be quite distracting; so distracting that as you hungrily fork that last bit of baked potato into your mouth you don't notice...

Think of all the times that you have hit the snooze button on your alarm clock and turned back into bed for just 5 extra minutes of sleep. Those 5 minutes can be very valuable, but imagine if you got one to two hours of extra sleep every morning. If school started a few hours later each day, the...

Most high school students go into college with a plan on what they want to major in. There are many majors that allow you to explore a million different careers and we usually focus on the basics. Psychology, doctor, cosmetologist, teacher, etc. What some of us might not realize is that these are just...

What on God’s green Earth is that sound? The rumble of jet engine? The mating call of a Beluga Whale? A surprise earthquake? Nope, it’s just my stomach. I roll out of bed in the very wee hours of the morning, only to wrestle the mess of knots and tangles that is my hair, scrounge up some outfit...
