An oasis is defined as a fertile spot in a desert where water is found. Many see Dallas and its surrounding suburbs as a desert where sand is replaced with concrete and oasis’ are replaced with parks and nature preserves.

When I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance palette, I did not exactly keep in mind that I am broke.

It is that time of year when seniors begin to choose where the shelter of their future education will be: college. Some kids dream of leaving the place they have lived for so long while others just want the right to say they had “the college experience.” That means going out of state to a college t...

For three weeks, Creekview’s Top Class Theatre had been rehearsing mercilessly for the production of a modern version of Othello, a Shakespeare classic. Performing Shakespeare in high school is hard enough as it is; so, naturally, the department modernized it, making it in some ways even more challeng...

If you thought the dispute about whether Pluto is still a planet or not was frustrating, (don’t worry Pluto, you’re still number nine in my book), wait until you hear about the new zodiac sign. It was rumored that NASA re-discovered a new zodiac on September 18 known as Ophiuchus that was left ou...

Showing off their blatant ignorance and immaturity, 21 kids are suing President Barack Obama, who has done more to cut carbon emissions and combat climate change than any other president, for his inaction on climate change. What do they want? For Obama to come up with a plan to fix climate change. T...

To say goodbye to four years seems upsetting, heartbreaking, an ultimate sob-fest. Yet for me, it is none of those things. On the flip side, this goodbye to high school is my final, honorable salute-- I respect this institution for providing me with memories, an education, teachers, and friends. It was g...

Once upon a time, a young girl stood gazing at the sea contemplating how she might conquer it. Every day she watched as ships sailed across the expanse and wondered when her ship would come to carry her away. She longed to go away--the indefinable place of possibility--but spent her days dreaming, standi...

A mother sits her child down at the dinner table and warns him of his environment. “Don’t be friends with white people,” she cautions, “they’re all the same.” The child is unaware, but at that moment, he has adopted a stereotype that will guide his mindframe throughout his life. Stereo...

Six months from now, my 18th birthday will roll around and I will become, in the eyes of the government, an adult. I never thought I would make it this far. All throughout elementary school, I would dream up fantasies about the future. Thinking about high school, college, and the cool house I would...

The Rangers and the Blue Jays settled their seven-month beef this past Sunday. And by no means was it peaceful. Back in October, during a decisive game five of the American League Divisional Series, Jose Bautista blasted the game-sealing home run that shook the Rogers Centre like a sizable earthquak...
