January 31, 2019

 Where the heck did Valentine’s Day come from? The holiday of “love” seemingly came out of nowhere with its heart boxes filled with chocolates, flowers, and expensive gifts. People spend so much money on a random holiday for “love," but is there really a meaning behind it besides the overhan...

There’s always that one hallway in the school where no one moves for a good, solid minute, and it’s caused by a common factor: freshmen.
