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...

It’s that time of year again when flowers begin to blossom and pollen flies everywhere, bringing in pesky allergies. Spring time brings warmer weather, but there are many cons to this supposedly beautiful season. The biggest problem is the return of allergies. I really hate allergies, they cause red eyes, stuffy noses and sneezing. All things I can’t stand, lik...

Friday is the only week day off for students until April 25. From there, there’s not another day off until the Friday before Memorial Day on May 30. This is one of the longest, if not the longest, stretches to go without a break. This is bad for students as we need a time to rest our brains and take a br...

When deciding to meet with friends for dinner, a lot of planning goes into deciding when to meet, where to meet, what to wear, and whether carpooling is an option or not. The planning is tedious, however, the result of meeting a friend you haven’t seen in awhile is worth it. Or at least it should be. ...

Brussels airport in Belgium was repeatedly bombed by terrorists, leaving at least 34 dead and 180 injured Tuesday morning with ISIS claiming responsibility for the attack. I heard about this attack while reading the news, and like everyone else, I think the attack was just terrible. However, people imm...

If you went up to a hundred people on the street and asked them what their favorite TV show is, I guarantee you many of them would say The Walking Dead. I can’t blame them. I mean, what’s not to love? The show is nothing short of art. The fact that they were able to make a show about dead peo...

Once in high school, the pressure and expectation to start dating begins to rise. Every holiday when the whole family gets together, I’m asked the same question: “Why no boyfriend?” I never know how to respond to that. This awkward situation doesn’t just occur with grandparents and aunts and...

After a certain period of time without the basic routine of attending school, our brains seem to shut out anything academic related. It is hard to get back into focus after a break, but it is also a vital step we have to take; especially this time of year. Spring break is over. We are making our...

Recently, school administration and faculty have been discussing the possibility of including a short activity period in the school’s bell schedule. Students could use the time for tutorials, homework, or simply socialization. It makes sense to have this as a part of the student schedule and the s...

Filed under Opinion

I often notice one thing: people have no trust in others. They believe that they are on top of the world, and that they don’t need to trust others. They think that they can succeed in life all by themselves.    When someone offers to do something nice for someone, two thoughts often pop up int...
