When one door closes, another one opens

Last year as a freshman I thought my world would end if I didn't make a sports team. I thought that if I got a B on a test I was going to fail a class. I thought that if I didn't get a date for homecoming, I would turn into the biggest loser of the entire school. I'm admitting it, I was stiff and nervous...

'Gossip Girl' goes from plaid to leather

Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

By: Ashley Hawkins and Kevin Hyde Ashley- When I first heard of The Pretty Reckless, I was pretty skeptical to listen to them. I had zero faith that a "Gossip Girl" could possibly be prosperous in the music industry. Plus, Paramore is my favorite female-fronted band; I'm pretty hostile towards other...

Politician's dirty games plague senior

October 18, 2010
Filed under Opinions

Between the numerous political speakers who have stopped by Hersey and the coverage for the upcoming November election, my life has felt like one giant campaign ad. However, at a time when people should be coming together to support each other during tough financial times, Democrats, Republicans, and...

Apathy is killin' me: get educated or die trying

October 18, 2010
Filed under Opinions

The other day while on the computer, I got sick of being on Facebook and reading about other people that I don't really care about. I found myself browsing through articles on the New York Time's website. The more articles I read, the more frustrated I became. At the root of this frustration was the...

Just Sayin'- (readers- post yours in comment box)

Every school day, I walk the hallways, minding my own business, just trying to get to class. I don’t push or shove, and I make sure to be kind and let the really short kids or incredibly shy kids pass me because I know those halls are hard for them. But I just can’t believe how many people just...

Status of my mind: Completely and utterly inverted. Cause of this abnormality: Roger Waters performing a Pink Floyd concert. While sitting on the train on the way downtown for the Roger Waters concert, I remembered hearing that can he put on an incredible show, but I was not prepared for the coming...

CBS show is still going strong

October 5, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Five seasons and still going is the  perfect way to describe  the CBS show "How I Met Your Mother." The weaving of old characters and new ones can't be matched by any new program. Now in its sixth season, it is still a pleasure to behold. The stars of "How I Met Your Mother," Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Alyso...

'Glee:' season two starts strong

September 22, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

After a stellar first season, 'Glee' had a high reputation to uphold in it's premiere on Tuesday night.  I was someone who, at first, was opposed to the 'Glee' phenomena that began circling schools everywhere last September.  However, I finally joined in during the second half of season one and now consider myself a full-fledged gleek. R...

Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

It was Friday night and I walked into Arlington Theaters expecting the typical Friday night buzz.  I was attending the 7:15 showing of 'Easy A' and figured the theater would be about half-full; it was an earlier showing after all.  To my surprise there was a line waiting to get into theater five, and...

Slow down and savor the moment, seniors

Filed under Opinions

So it’s senior year. I’ve waited for this year all my life, and intend to fully savor every last moment of it. But what’s next: college for most, and the real world for anyone else. This is truly the last year seniors have to be kids. I know it’s early, but the reality of life after high school ...

Trivial texting toleration waivers for senior

September 16, 2010
Filed under Opinions

Cell phones aren't going away, lets face it, they are as essential as Lindsay Lohan's trips to rehab. It is not unusual to see teenagers out and about with their trendy phone glued to the inside of their palm. I will just come right out and say that I am not against texting. I think texting is extremely ...
