Everyday students do work for a grade; daily worksheets, homework, essays, quizzes, and tests. The mindset of most students when it comes to all this work: what can I do to get an A or  what’s enough for me to pass. But the real question students should be asking is: “Why do we always do worry ab...

Trying to understand the opposite sex is hard. Coming from a guy's perspective, trying to understand a singular girl’s actions, words, and mannerisms is a seemingly impossible task. I have never in my 18 years of life accomplished this, no matter how long I’ve known the said female. Whether as a f...

It’s getting closer to the end of the year and AP tests are coming up along with the excitement for the school year to be over. Unfortunately this has seemed to cause a negative attitude in many students and has led some students to stress while other students simply don’t care anymore. This atti...

With prom tomorrow and Frisco High School putting on Shattered Dreams this week, the topic of drinking and driving is quite relevant for high schoolers this weekend. I feel like I’ve heard more warnings about drinking and being a stupid teenager than I ever have before. My teachers have been sending u...

Taking tests is probably one of the most important yet stressful actions in a student’s career. Although testing one’s knowledge is a crucial aspect to their education, the fact that one test can destroy your entire class average is a bit overwhelming; especially for high schoolers. You can make...

So, Ted Cruz has won Wisconsin, bringing him to 517 delegates, only 226 behind Trump. This may seem like a lot but it’s really not in the grand scheme of things. So, what does this mean for the election? Cruz has won states before. Lots of them. So why should this be any different, you say? Well, ...

Field trips are a very entertaining yet educational way to spend a school day. Elementary and some middle school students get to experience these lively days full of learning as well as fun. However, high schoolers are not typically given the opportunity to go on field trips unless it is for a certain...

I may be alone here, but I really wish there was more religious freedom in schools. Have you ever been writing something for class around winter time in which you mention “Christmas break”? Well, chances are you have, and chances also are that that particular assignment was given back to you, with the...

If you know me well, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead which ends its sixth season Sunday. Unlike most people I am a relatively new fan, as I didn’t start watching the show until around this time last year. However, once I started watching, I was hooked. Not only am I a big fan o...

Although the dress code here isn’t too strict, some people get dress coded for the smallest reasons. But at the same time, some people get away with wearing more revealing clothing. I’m a personal fan of Nike shorts. I don’t see any problem with wearing them at school and neither does the s...

I’m walking out of the Westminster metro station in London looking up at Big Ben when suddenly a giant gray object obstructs my view. It is none other than a brand new DSLR camera held by a middle aged woman in khakis and a giant backpack which is threatening to knock out my very existence. The typical tourist. Ah, how I avoid these people in hopes that the loc...

When Supreme court justice Antonin Scalia died, rather than a period of mourning, immediate controversy resulted as politicians made this a political moment. Liberal politicians wanted President Barack Obama to be the one to nominate a new justice, while many conservatives thought that the next preside...
