I wish I could give you some wise words  that would magically give you the best high school experience, but the truth is, it’s all about perception. You’ll come across people in your life who everyone likes and you don’t understand why because they’re honestly the cruelest people you’ve...

March 22, 2017

Picture it now, a dark stage with one spotlight on you, everyone looking at you. Nerves racking, you do it anyways, you read that poem. You not only read that poem but you read that poem in front of your peers. But when you’re done, it’s all okay, because you can hear Mrs. Engelkes cheering you on i...

I remember the first time I met you. I was seven years old curled up in the fetal position crying hysterically and hyperventilating. You were the only one there to help me cope when my parents were fighting. You were there when I wanted to make new friends on the playground cautioning me to keep to myself...

I wanted to write an article about “fake friends.” But to be completely honest, the more I thought about it, the more I realized… I’m just salty because I miss you. This isn’t an article bashing people who have walked in and out of my life. This is about those I’ve loved along the way and ...

When I was 7 ish years old, I found out I was going to be an aunt by my (at the time) 17 year old sister. She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy a few weeks after she turned 18.

Summer, the truly most wonderful time of the year, is just around the corner. Some high schoolers will be sent to stay with relatives, others to various camps every week, and there’s also the ones who hop from vacation to vacation in the warm months of the year. But then there’s the ones like me...
