Senior Jitters

So, I will admit, I'm a very busy person. I work multiple jobs, take AP courses, work the soundboard at church, am an officer in ROTC, and volunteer. On top of that, I rarely say no to invites to events or more work. But now, senior year has hit me

Holiday Jitters

The holidays are sort of a weird time for me. Usually people feel unified, joyful, or any number of other positive emotions, most of which are associated with family. Personally, I just feel stuck. Stuck between two worlds. My parents have been divorced longer than they were ever married. I was born,

All-nighters? Worst. Idea. Ever.

Let's get one thing out of the way. I haven't pulled an all-nighter since probably December of 2014. It's now February 2017. That's three years I've gone without needing to stay up the entire night for anything. I don't even stay up all night on New Year's Eve-- i'm promptly in bed

It's January, and for many high school seniors-- actually, about 3.5 million for the 2016-17 school year-- that means graduation is somewhere close to five months away. An even earlier deadline is the so-called "grade lock" deadline, when seniors' grades are finalized for transcript submissions to college (somewhere in the

Respect Thanksgiving

Before you say it: yes, I know. Thanksgiving is already over and done with, and now we're well into the Christmas and Winter holiday season. But what happened to Thanksgiving? It used to be that after Halloween people put out little turkey decorations or tiny pilgrim hats. They decorated their places of

Rest In Peace, Vine

Vine, the six second video service we all know and love, was an empire. It had its ups and downs, its weird and wild, and now, like all empires, it has fallen. Twitter, who owns Vine, announced that they are shutting the video looping service down in the coming months. It's

Non-binary Style: the movement

In light of the new media buzz around trans people, cisgenders oftentimes forget that transgenders have been around for a long time. They work, live, and are productive members of society in every aspect of their lives. Among all the trans-men and trans-women, however, is another identity: non-binary. There are a
