Originally my plan for my senior column was going to be to try and just write really clever and funny stuff throughout the entire article. However, my thoughts are running dry as the year comes to a close, and I guess I'€™ll try to write something at least somewhat serious. I guess I don'€™t really...

I know I should start out with something classy, but I can'€™t. I took an AP test today, and I'm kind of dead. The year'€™s winding down, the grad parties have started, and I'€™m here stuck in my basement, pretending I know what my Stat homework is talking about. There'€™s a lot of things I'€™ll...
