Gender stereotypes are so entrenched in society that although they are untrue, many are still seen as fact. Women are emotional. Men are tough. Women are supposed to be homemakers. Men are supposed to be doctors and lawyers. These stereotypes misrepresent large portions of society and without change ...

As I reflect back on Blue Bomb during the last day of homecoming week or concerts I’ve been to, I’ve come to realize how impactful music is. Music can bring people together who don’t even know each other. People you’ve never talked to or acknowledge before somehow become your friend for a few...

After witnessing many seniors vote in this year’s midterm elections, I began to think about when you truly become an adult. Legally, one is an adult when they turn 18, but due to other laws and restrictions, that is not really the case. While I think the age to become an adult should not be 18, I do...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

During my time in high school, I have seen a split between the student population. Some students become the book-loving, “nerds” that appear to know every fact in the world, while others become the “popular” kids who tend to travel with a group of friends. It may appear now that the popular kids are ...

Nearly every time I glance at my surroundings – whether I’m in the living room with my family, sitting in a car full of people, or in a classroom full of students before class starts — the majority of people are staring down at their cell phones. Although I’ll admit, I’m usually one of tho...

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...

Going into senior year, I knew that in order to be successful I would have to be as organized as humanly possible. With college application deadlines and scholarship essays on top of the day to day high school and after school life, senior year is pretty hectic. In order to keep all of these things str...
