Filed under Opinion

Let me begin with a small disclaimer: I am in no way upset over my parent’s decision to get divorced and I am in no way trying to gain your pity. I just believe it is time to share the main reason behind why I am so much of an introvert. My parents have been divorced since I was two years old. I...

Staffer finds joy playing piano

February 19, 2015


Filed under Opinion

The past 10 years of my life I have trained my fingers to remember specific melodies and their exact placement on a keyboard of 88 different keys. The piano is an integral part of my daily life. There are certain days burned into everyone’s memory; something that leaves a mark on them they will...

Wind and rain are never a good combination, especially in October. The dead leaves that fall from the trees are almost symbolic of how empty and cold this month makes you feel. A hidden beauty but not one you necessarily want to be exposed in for three hours. Oct. 25 was the day I volunteered to go...

“Ready to run?!” I fumbled with the door of the Astro van. It slid shut on the third try, slamming with a sense of finality, shaking the whole vehicle and the jar of butterflies where my stomach used to be. “No, not really,” I buckled my seatbelt anyway.

You have made it through the school day, now you have to go through a two to three hour practice. Then you can go home and finish your homework, go to sleep and wake up, only to repeat the process. That is where the term “student-athlete” comes from. Playing sports in school is great but it...

Trying to drive down Meridian between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on a week day cannot really be considered driving, more like stopping for 10 minutes and then driving forward three feet before you stop again. The road is full of people who apparently do not know what they are doing. You watch as cars slam their...
