While on a mini-vacation in Washington D.C., the party I was traveling with stopped by the Newseum, a museum that deals with, not only journalism, but the major stories of the recent century. Between the powerful 9/11 exhibit and the oddly-placed Ron Burgundy area, I noticed a specific exhibit that ...

Every Friday in the halls, I hear students complain about the fact that there is "nothing to do around here." Students blame their boredom on the fact we live in the suburbs. However, students don't realize how lucky they are to be only a train ride away from one of the biggest cities in the nation....

I live a pretty good life. I live in America (score!), I come from a middle-class family, and my biggest worry in life is which college I'll go to. That being said, even with my fairly relaxed lifestyle, I find it incredibly difficult to square away a set time every week to watch weekly programmed shows...

Filed under Online only, Opinions, Speak Up

Pulling into the parking lot in the morning gets me slightly nervous, and I'm not even driving. Seeing how reckless and unpredictable many drivers are in Hersey's parking lot almost makes me want to avoid getting my license. The hectic rush to leave when school lets out can be deadly with cars pulling...

Filed under Dissin' & Dishin', Opinions

Every now and then, I have to be reminded of manners. It's natural that I forget, being the cocky teenager I am. But sometimes I forget to look at the person I'm talking to. Sometimes I don't notice I didn't hold the door open for a handicapped person until the last second. Sometimes I toss a beehive o...

Disclaimer: I'll be talking about naked celebrities. But I'm not doing it for the sake of money, nor am I doing it for the sake of art. No, I'm doing it because, well, I like talking about naked celebrities. We don't need to go into the details too much, so I'll keep it to one sentence with far to...

Crossing the street from the strip mall to Hersey before and after school is far from safe.  With the speeding cars flying past and the lack of a safe crossing zone, students have to wait for an opportunity to cross. There have to be no cars coming from a certain distance from both directions and t...
