Jake Paul is saving YouTube. Now, I want to make it clear that I do not condone the crazy and erratic behavior, like lighting furniture on fire, that ensues when he is trying to create material. Jake Paul, a 20-year old YouTuber who rose to fame through Vine, posts daily vlogs on YouTube with a gro...

On September 11, 2001 at 8:46 a.m., four hijacked planes were flown and crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing thousands. Every year we remember the strength and courage of those lost. However, rarely do we ever focus on the after effects of this tragedy and how they contin...

In junior high school, I had a tin lunchbox with a picture of Rosie the Riveter printed on the thin metal in that famous bright blue and yellow.  My history teacher and I loved it, but not many other people did. I remember one day in Spanish class, this boy, let’s say his name was Dan, saw my l...

Procrastination. Every high schooler knows that word too well. We all wait for the last possible minute to get things done, but recently there have been many concerns about the length of Prom ticket lines and the way it is sold. Senior Adam Kraus has expressed some of his concern. “I just don’t think the...

It’s the most obnoxious and ear grating sound in the morning: the alarm clock. It says 6 a.m. You went to bed six and a half hours ago. Why? Because homework, that’s why. The only reason you’re getting up at the crack of dawn and not sleeping in for another hour is because of zero period. ...

It is those pending two weeks in between Thanksgiving break and Winter break that hold the most anticipation and anxiety for high school students. Teachers start to speed lectures up to squeeze in what they can before the semester ends and students hastily attempt to raise their grades last minute. It’...

Our nation was founded upon the principles of speaking out. We championed civil rights and equality with protests. Sometimes you just cannot stay silent on a certain issue. Sometimes organizing is the only way to spur change. Protesting is a fundamental right in the free world and when executed correct...

As Election year rolls around, voters begin listing reasons for not showing up to the polls. One excuse always stands out and drives me insane: ”my vote doesn’t matter.” Sure, statistics might dictate that a single vote will not be the determining factor in an election, but simply hiding behin...

It’s well known that this year’s election has been more “competitive” than most, to put it nicely. The 2016 election has been a head-to-head battle between a Republican candidate looking to redeem “the good old days” and a Democratic candidate pushing for equality and a “fair economy.” N...

Clubs are a great way to meet people, especially when you don’t know many people. I remember walking out around the school on club rush freshman year and thinking to myself, there’s a club for everyone here. I was still skeptical about the school, but walking around and seeing the sheer number of...

What did the teacher just say? I don’t get this. Ooh, I like that kid’s shirt, I wonder where he got it.     These are just some of the thoughts that unfocused, off-task students have when they aren’t paying attention. When I’m in math class, I find myself bored and almost falling asle...
