Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know about our recent epidemic. But just in case the slim chance you don’t know about it, I will enlighten you. For the past month or so (I really don’t know) there have been creepy clowns terrorizing the masses. There are many theories beh...

This past January, Walt Whitman High School installed brand-new water fountains complete with a water bottle filling station. Meanwhile, roughly half of our water fountains actually work. The other half, however, are a different story: Yikes. Installing new fountains and refill stations wou...

Have you ever been given a nickname by your friends that you really don’t like, and have you ever been called that nickname for two-and-a-half or so years? I have and let me tell you, it isn’t that fun. Back in middle school, I was a much different person than I am today. One day on the way ...

Senior year is advertised as the easiest year in high school. All of my friends who graduated seemed to skate through their last year with little effort. It seemed easy enough so I bought it. I came in excited for this year and ready to apply to colleges. I thought everything would be a breeze. Five...

That was one of the mild things/threats that the football team heard/received. As you may know, I am one of the players on the Watkins Mill football team that took a knee for the past three games in protest of social injustice and inequality in America. I just want to take some time to give m...

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages. Gather 'round, gather 'round as I tell you about one of the most magnificent gifts to the human race.

Why take animals out of the wild then kill them once they start to act wild? Animals, like humans, deserve to live. Whether they are dolphins, pandas or cheetahs, they all have a right to be alive. Over Memorial Day weekend, America found out about the death of Harambe, a 17-year-old western lo...

SUMMER! That is the only thing on my mind right now. It’s been mission impossible for me to focus on anything school related ever since the AP Government exam, which I must admit, was not as hard as I assumed it would be. I was expecting a 200 multiple choice test with 6 Free Response Questions,...

Procrastination is something we all try to avoid, but none of us can ever seem to shake it. Even now while typing this, I am procrastinating. It is something we all have done or do. It’s unshakable, a bad habit, a curse. For those who can conquer this trait, those who can quench the thirst for ...

Sugar! Spice! And everything nice! These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girl.  But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredients to the concoction--Chemical X. Thus, the Powerpuff Girls were born!
