For those of you starting college in the fall, there are some things you need to be aware of before you go. Besides the cramped dorm rooms, mass amounts of homework and unreasonable sorority/fraternity initiations, the number one thing you need to worry about is gaining weight. Unlike the Lochnes...

Who Wants to Be a Billionaire?

Remember that show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? This game show was the most accurate depiction of an emotional rollercoaster. Each contestant sat in the chair with the same energy and hope that their lives could change forever. They went through the motions of the “no brainers” that only inte...

Glasses are nice for reading and seeing, but that marks the end of the pros list about them; the cons are infinite. The optometrist gave me a year supply of contacts, and that supply lasted eight months. Unless I can find the contacts I’ve lost or get new ones at full (without insurance discou...

Thumbs Down: Schoolwork Over Breaks

Filed under Thumbs Down

We as students, spend seven to eight hours a day at school filling our minds with information that will “later help us in life” and are then expected to go home and do another three to six hours of homework. The only times we get away from the stress of the overload of work is on our vacation brea...

We are obligated by law to attend school 162 of the 180 days in each school year. Eight absences first semester and 10 second semester. Being borderline or having excessive absences lands you in absence make-up Wednesdays after school or Saturday mornings.   It is a very dreadful and boring - if we are...

It’s finally winter break. You’re chilling at home, de-stressing from all those exams, and it’s a peaceful, silent night. A simple knock on the door, a doorbell pressed is all it takes for that calm, Christmas atmosphere to be broken. The Christmas carolers have arrived. They stand on the ...

The hype is real. Is Darth Vader alive? Luke? He’s Evil? Don’t even get me started on Jar Jar. Fan theories have been badgering me for months in anticipation of The Force Awakens slated to release in a week and I can’t wait (I nearly bought tickets to go the the midnight showing until I remembered...

    Talk to the hand. If the hand doesn’t listen, you can talk to your wrist instead. The Apple Watch, which was introduced to the market on April 10, 2015, is a new addition to the smart Apple family that is most definitely nothing like their previous products. Not only can the wa...

Why should one person’s insecurity lead to another person’s inconvenience? When Southwest Airlines held back two Muslim passengers, Maher Khalil and Anas Ayyad at a Chicago airport, they defended doing so by stating that safety was their primary focus, and employees were to make decisions to ensure security of the people on the flight. However, these customers later told ...

The sports world as we know it is about to take a very hard blow to the gut. One of its most iconic, and talented athletes will, at the end of this 2015-2016 NBA season, no longer step foot on the hardwood floor. Kobe Bryant’s retirement was imminent. Everyone knew it was bound to be announced...

Wasting Time “After School”: the Dumpster for Devious Thoughts

Wasting Time “After School”: the Dumpster for Devious Thoughts

Bayley Bogus, Editor-in-Chief

December 8, 2015


Filed under Opinions, Showcase

I’m addicted to social media just as much as the next person; don’t get me wrong. My bashing of our shameful societal ways is slightly hypocritical, however, completely necessary. The new trending app, After School, is the single most mind-numbing way to waste time and brain cells. On the app, students have...

A fad from the 1800’s is making a comeback. You’d think after two hundred years we would realize crushing our ribs and organs together maybe isn’t such a good idea. But here we are, waist trainers breaking the internet with girls as young as 15 wearing corsets. You see posts of girls showing off ...
