Writing a reflection on four years worth of high school with only two weeks left is a daunting task—proportionally, it just doesn’t work. Not to mention the hindrance of slow motion brain-clutter that many seniors are now experiencing as the final days of our secondary education come to a swift hault...

I’ve always liked writing about whatever’s interested me, but I don’t like writing about myself specifically. It never comes out right and it feels egotistical. This entire article isn’t my kinda gig, where either I dispense academic advice with my incredible 2.07 GPA, give social tips when I di...

… Are two words that describe the majority of my High School years. When I began to write this I was very frustrated and out for blood. I wanted to go for the jugular. Burn every bridge possibly and not look back, but, I am tired. Instead here is my version of an acceptance speech. Except instead of produ...

Senior year is finally coming to a close, the upcoming years are filled which such uncertainty that it’s nice to sit back and reflect on my past four years. I remember the first day of high school when I got yelled at by Spence in front of the entire 2018 class, if this is what high school was gonna b...

4 years may not seem like a long time, but at some points in life it is. High school is one of those points. In 4 years you can see major changes in yourself and others as well. In my high school tenure, I as well as many others, struggled to find who I am and what I wanted to be in life, how to be confid...

It’s really very difficult to dish out advice when you yourself are so tired of hearing it. For the past year, college advice has been hounding me, threatening to drown me with well-meant comments on how to branch out of my comfort zone or how to study effectively. Despite my reservations, here I am, imp...

When I first joined The Web my sophomore year, I remember thinking to myself that when I wrote my senior column, it would be full of wisdom and would end up inspiring others and hopefully, bring some students to tears. Now that I am a senior and am writing my column, I have realized that I do not hav...

I’m not going to lie. I felt a little bit like an FDA inspector going into these stores with a hidden agenda. It wasn’t all stealthy smooth, though. I either forgot my phone (for note-taking) or it died upon arrival at at least three stores. I found some tissues in clothes I tried. I even had a c...
