Try to see how many you can complete on this list to have the best summer ever. Most things listed are free or close to it, so they won't break the bank.  Good luck and...

As I walked into class, I felt the “who the heck is this?" look from them. I made my way to a random seat in the back, and listened as the teacher spoke a language I didn't understand. Whoever said starting school in another continent was easy lied to you. Terribly. Coming here from France at t...

This is it. This is where I say goodbye. I’ve been putting this off for a long time, as long as I could, but time has finally run out. I’m leaving and won’t be coming back. As I’ve avoided writing this, I’ve also been racking my brain trying to figure out how I was going to fit four amaz...

So you know that one girl with the demon in her room? Well, I went over there thinking that I was good and that the demon didn't care about me. I was wrong. Let me shine a little bit of light on the situation. Charisse and I are good friends. I go over to her house often and we chill in her room. Yes, her hous...

So as you all know, a demon lives in my room. This is not a joke. Today's article will be about a specific instance that my friend, unfortunately, had to go through. Alone. Granted it was kind of not really my fault, but still happened nonetheless. It all began on a surprisingly warm October n...

Wow, the time has finally come. Senior year. To be brutally honest, it still hasn’t hit me that I’m graduating. Mostly feels like I’m going through the motions. The past four years though have been nothing short of a movie. From the soul train line freshman year, the time we jumped my friend...

When people say time flies, it’s no joke. The past four years have felt long in the process but looking back, it all went by so quick. I have grown so much as a person and student. Also looking back, I have changed so much physically. I cringe looking at pictures from my freshman, sophomore and...

I think I can proudly say that my time spent at The Mill was a pleasant time. Why? Because I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Confino my freshman year of high school, and the most obvious answer, taking journalism. Reminiscing back to the times when I was a freshman in Confino’s class is horrific....

Reflecting upon senior year, I definitely came into it with some unrealistic expectations of what my year would entail. As part of my senior reflection, I want to take it upon myself to do some senior year myth-busting for all you upcoming seniors.   Myth 1: Time Flies This is a weighted myth. It's...

In my four years here, I haven’t looked forward to a class the way I looked forward to journalism. It is a group of students and a teacher that I will forever remember and truly miss as I continue on in my journey of life. I joined journalism my sophomore year because Mrs. Confino encouraged me...

WHY WON'T IT STOP RAINING???? The weather lately has been blowing me. I understand that it is spring, but why is the weather playing us like this? Every single week when I'm busy with schoolwork, and have to be indoors, the weather wants to be beautiful. I am tired of it. I miss the sun hitti...
