Going over to a friend’s house when we were kids was an enjoyable experience. Now, as we are older and technology is getting more advanced, going to your friends house is no different than spending time at your own house.

February 12, 2015

When it comes to whether or not reading books is a good use of time, for most people, the answer is a definite “no.” The reason for this is that people aren’t aware that it really just depends on the type of book you are reading.

For many high school students, our adolescence is the prime time for us to be finding our identities, trying new styles and maybe even new relationships.

Since the tech levy passed in early 2014, a horde of new technologies have found their way into our school. While these gadgets may be new and shiny, not all of them enhance the learning experience.

After sleeping for only four hours the night before, the snooze alarm is your companion as you press it over and over in an effort to get just a few more minutes of precious sleep.

December 17, 2014

From gauges to tattoos, many students and staff are expressing themselves by altering their appearance out of school, and graciously flaunting it in school. Personally, I don’t believe that any change one makes to themselves impacts others directly. Many people are just far too touchy with their feelings... Read more »
