The Good Old Days: Class of 2020

Ginger Williams, Co-Editor in Chief

May 15, 2020

In the words of Macklemore’s song Good Old Days, “I would lay in my bed and dream about what I’d become. Couldn’t wait to get older, couldn’t wait to be something. Now I’m here, wishing I was still young.” Senior Year. The year that each and every one of us looks forward to for year...

Why we need ASA

Why we need ASA

Leila Stewart

March 6, 2020

I am the president of the African Student Association. Like any club, we have to learn how to manage meetings, socials, events, dues, and all the other usual stress that comes with organizing a club, especially at a school as big as ours. I have been involved in other clubs, sports, and organization...

After shooting and killing your 17-year-old unarmed son and putting you through months of emotional stress, only to be acquitted of all charges, surely there is no more I can do to harm you and your family, for George Zimmerman, this is not true. Zimmerman has announced that he plans to sue Trayvon Ma...

My Journey To Senior Year

My Journey To Senior Year

Ginger Williams, Co-Editor in Chief

November 1, 2019

“Ginger, You’re Accepted!” As soon as I read those words atop the Baylor website, I was at a loss for my own. I could not believe my eyes as I watched the fireworks practically pop out of the screen. When I finally came to terms with what this meant, I found myself running around the house screaming...

The Problem With College Board

The Problem With College Board

Chirag Mangnaik, Reporter

November 1, 2019

College Board changed the deadline for AP registration for the 2019-2020 school year. This year, the deadline is November 1, 2019. And it makes no sense. College Board’s justification for moving the deadline were studies that showed that students that enrolled in the fall did better on the exams....

Inside the DECA Internationals

Inside the DECA Internationals

May 16, 2019

Day -1. Internationals. Florida. Five days. It seems a little surreal to be totally honest. As a member of DECA going as part of the leadership program, I am unsure of what is in store for me. As for the competitors, there are members who qualified due to a stock market simulation and the members...

For Your Consideration: An Inconsiderate Society

For Your Consideration: An Inconsiderate Society

Laurenz Quinto

May 16, 2019

A girl is outcasted in a world that grows closer each day. She becomes isolated because of online gossip that ruined her reputation. Living in the cruel mobile age, this crusade on her can only end one way: her death.   Several cases of cyberbullying ended the same way in the victim’s suicide. a...

Is Heterophobia Real?

In same-sex relationships, couples are often asked:

Laurenz Quinto

April 30, 2019

“Why are there gay-only bars, but no straight-only bars?”   Go ahead and pat yourself in the back for such progressive thinking. Because you are absolutely right! Why should we, in the year two thousand and nineteen, continue to relegate ourselves to divided labels and identities when w...

Thoughts on Body Image

Thoughts on Body Image

Ashley Ladoucieur

April 28, 2019

The media glorifies thin bodies for girls and muscular bodies for guys. This glorification has caused many perfectly healthy teens and adults to develop a body dysphoria. When someone develops a body dysphoria they gear their negative thoughts towards a certain body part or their body as a whole....

What AP Spanish has taught me

What AP Spanish has taught me

Leila Stewart, Co-Editor in Chief

April 4, 2019

Before heading into the fourth quarter of AP Spanish IV, my class finished the movie, “Mar Adentro”, or translated in English, the “Sea Inside.” The movie is a true story about Ramon Sampedro, a Spanish seaman, and writer who spent 29 years as a paraplegic and fought for the right to end his...

Favorite Show to Binge Watch

March 8, 2019

Sitting in bed staring at a blank screen. Thinking of the infinite possibilities before me. What do I choose? Romance, comedy, mystery. There are too many choices. That’s where we come in, because we have a collection of TV shows that are sure to be a perfect fit for all. Senior Ada Eke recomm...
