Time flies FAST. I can’t believe the day I have literally been waiting for four years for has finally come. Senior year has come to an end and in less than two weeks, we will be walking across the stage. I have watched both my brothers walk across the stage and it feels really good to know that ...

I will try to make this as brief as possible. High school was a HUGE transition from middle school. I can remember my first day like it was yesterday. The smell of new shoes and morning breath.

Ah, senior year. After four years, I'll be gone after this week. Of course there were times I wanted to drop out, but who could blame me? Everyone probably wanted to drop out at some point in their high school career, but obviously it wasn't going to happen. Throughout all my years of high school,...

“GIRL, DON’T DO IT!” That's what I would have told my freshman self four years ago. When I first came to Watkins Mill, I don't know what I expected. But it certainly wasn't to almost get held back freshman year and struggle to get myself on the right track for the rest of my high school care...

So it is that time of the year, the time when the seniors start leaving. Guess what the scariest and most exciting part of this whole thing is? This year I’m one of them this year. All I can say high school for me has been an emotional roller coaster but I’m just pushing myself all the way throug...

If you watch The Simpsons, or the news, or have a Facebook account, then you’ve probably heard about Mormons by now. At least, that’s what everyone calls us. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, please keep reading, you may learn something. If you know everything about Mormons, keep rea...

Let’s go back in time. Back to the magical, magnificent day of May 1, 2014. Back when I was in the second semester of sophomore year. Back when I thought I had a copious amount of time, before I finally had to be an adult and make my own decisions. I remember thinking about how I’d have to enr...

What’s the worst thing you can do during your last year of high school? It would be NOT trying to do work. The definition of the disease senioritis: when seniors start giving up because they are just too “lazy” to do it. Let’s be real. Senioritis has hit us all like a truck. Just looking around a...

I feel like I got smacked in the face. By reality. HARD. In just two-and-a-half months, we seniors will be high school graduates. We will be forced into the “adult life,” and (short of failing English) there's absolutely nothing we can do about it. Three months ago, I would've been exci...
