Winter is the season when viruses begin to peak, which means you’re more likely to catch a nasty sickness if you don’t take extra precautions. The CDC says that the influenza in 2018 is worse than the swine flu outbreak back in 2009, which killed around 200,000 people worldwide. Everyone hates getting sick, so that’s why we have medicine and vaccines...

With December here and deadlines swiftly approaching, I am going through what I believe are my last few rounds of college applications and forms. I’ve been writing short answers upon short answers for my supplementals, and while they can be stressful, I’ve found that a lot of good has come out of...

Senior year is an odd one. You’re not quite an adult who is ready to live alone and pay bills and not rely on your parents, but in a few short months you’re going to have to be (if you’re going to college). It’s a very scary, yet very exciting transitional period. Everyone I’ve discussed this...

When we were all kids, we were all taught the words “stop” and “no”, and we took these words to heart. When you ask someone for something, and they say no, you stop asking. When someone tells you to stop doing something, you stop doing it. Sometimes we get angry or sad because of it, but we ge...

My parents, sisters, and I set foot in our home on Saturday for the first time after a much needed Thanksgiving break with the grands in Jackson, MS. The majority of my school chapter has been written in Plano and Frisco, but for the first six years of my life, I lived in Brandon, MS. It’s a cozy...

Most high school students have a cell phone or tablet that they can bring to school daily. On campus, cell phones are allowed in many classes but this can lead to distracted students, cheating, and increased screen time.

The other day I was driving with my dad, and he pointed out to me that another driver on the road had graciously given me the opportunity to proceed forward, even though it was technically his turn. The gesture stuck with me the whole day. What can I say? I guess I’m a sucker for the small th...

A year ago, I wrote a column about my complicated relationship with my hair as well as my discomfort with people touching it. After a recent experience, I thought it would be nice to revisit it. I went to Walmart with my mom to get some things for my aunt, since Thanksgiving is only a week away. Whi...
