A girl stands in the checkout line at Target. She’s holding a bottle of Sprite, a bag of Cheetos, and a Call of Duty Black Ops 3 video game.

School for 7 hours and then homework for what seems like another. It’s as if there is no time for anything other than school, work, and for some of us athletics. Talk about a nightmare. It’s no lie that life can be busy at times. There’s work, school, sports, arts, musical theater, plus so much...

Although racism is said to be coming to an end, it is still alive and well in society. It might not be shown like it was in the 50s and 60s, but it’s still definitely prevalent in modern-day-society. “All my life, people have made fun of me for my skin color. They call me ‘whitey, gringo, etc.’...

“All men are created equal.” But what about women? Women are treated quite differently than men.  Women are attacked for doing the same things men are and it is not fair. It’s common sense people would want both genders to have the same rights. There is no reason someone deserves to be treated...

Report card day. As the second period dementor hands back the paper of death, students cringe in their seat as they see their final grades. That AP student inwardly groans because they were 2.86% away from their perfect 4.0 GPA. Next to them, a student glowers at the F that soiled their transcript. Great....
