Count the tiles. One. Count the tiles. Two. Count the tiles. Three. Count the tiles…but do not let anyone see you counting. They cannot know. The teacher can’t know. The other kids, they cannot know. Focus on the homework. The teacher is lecturing, you need to pay attention. You failed the last test...

Every other week there seems to be a new "challenge" that takes social media by storm, and by now we should know how influential it can be when encouraging others to partake in these challenges.   Some challenges are used as a platform for promoting awareness, or raising money for a cause, like the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. Many are ...

The image of a bird by the ocean waves, the bird stands in the sand with one twiggy leg stretched towards the waves which are labelled 'suicide,' and the bird is labelled 'me.' A harmless meme, but this picture says so much more below the surface.   This generation on social media posts memes and makes jokes about thoughts of suicide, depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety. We all sc...

[polldaddy poll=9911252] Adopt Don't Shop is a slogan that has been making its way across the world for a while. Basically, people who support this believe that people should adopt pets instead of buying them from breeders. After reading my fair share of articles with and against adopting, I've come...

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. Last night, 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...

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...
