Cookie Recipe and Experience

Parisara Milan, Photographer

January 10, 2020

Growing up I always would watch my mom cook and help her as much as she allowed me to.   From the first time she let me stir the pot to the first time I was taught how to use a knife; we would cook varieties of Thai food together, ranging from hot and spicy food that leave an after taste...

Managing My Time

Leo Quale, Op/Ed Editor

January 9, 2020

          Time really flies when you’re not doing your homework, especially when it’s due the next day.            I think every high schooler can relate to not having enough motivation, enough energy, enough chutzpah to get all their assignments...

My River Story

January 8, 2020

My entire life I have known it was inevitable that the day would come where I would have to get a job.  Trust me, I didn’t wait with baited breath.              Anticipating getting a job and applying was no fun. I expected no one to respond to my inquiries....

A House Divided

Michaela Ely, Web Editor

January 8, 2020

My parents got a divorce when I was 4-years-old.  I’m not saying this for pity or sympathy; it’s honestly better that it turned out this way. People always ask me what I’m doing for the holidays or if I’m free on the weekends. And depending on which parent I’m with, the answer varies ...
