… 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.

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.

When I came to Ames High I was over-confident in my abilities. Middle School had effectively made me think that I was “all that.” I was sure I’d have a 4.0 GPA, I was sure I’d run varsity cross country or play varsity baseball and play saxophone in symphonic band. None of these things happened. ...

As a Junior, I frequented Café Diem over double lunch. Consequently, I was often late for AP Lit (the consecutive class period). One day, I felt an internal drive to not, perhaps, disappoint Mr. Webb for once. I started to speed. After coming to a 4 way stop and seeing the car to the left drive throu...

Many are familiar with the comedic scene from Tina Fey’s film Mean Girls in which the P.E. teacher dramatically says “Don’t have sex, because you will get pregnant and die! Don’t have sex in the missionary position, don’t have sex standing up, just don’t do it, ok, promise?” The sent...
