She opened the picture on her phone, adding in every tiny obscure detail, pulling in every unwanted curve and exemplifying the wanted ones. She added the final touches, her sweaty finger hovering above the upload button, her heart skipping a beat as she finally presses down. Posting her picture to so...

The humid, hot Sunday afternoon I spent waiting for my target for the game Assassins at Lake Quivira drained me. During this 90-minute period of impatience, I mentally went over my plan to splash water on my target. Finally, after growing increasingly anxious, I saw her walk out of the Lake Quivira cl...

To most people, running is a black and white thing, either you love it or you hate it. There is no middle ground. As someone who has been running since seventh grade, my relationship with running has changed greatly throughout my Cross Country and Track career. After all these years, running is no long...

The idea that it’s human nature to make mistakes has been around far longer than I have, and it’s a point I doubt anyone would argue with. After all, who can’t look back at the life they’ve led and burn with embarrassment due to that one presentation you messed up freshman year, or sorrowfull...

Everybody wants to be who they are, but in high school they don’t always get that chance. High school is full of expectations and drama that labels teens based off their appearance.

Going to a high school that offers a safe learning environment, friends and having caring parents at home is what all teenagers want. The problem is, all teenagers don’t receive that.

I’m not an avid viewer of YouTube videos, but I am familiar with the mantra recited at the end of many of them: “like, comment and subscribe for more.” Although the phrase has become cliche, it asks very little from the video’s viewers. If you enjoy anything, taking the time to be engaged at...
