With graduation vastly approaching, seniors and their parents are starting to plan out their celebrations. It might even feel as if some parents are more excited than their student. The pressure to meet your parents expectations is, I assume a life-long struggle. I am not yet prepared for the anxie...

Anti-Vax Ignore All The Facts

Filed under Opinion

A very vocal and very ignorant minority of people keep spouting their stupid beliefs, spreading both misinformation and diseases, diseases that we have had vaccines to protect against for as long as 100 years. Measles is a respiratory infection that weakens your immune system and causes a total-body skin...

A Social Virus

Filed under Opinion

I personally think social media is a virus to our mental health. It is a magnet for us to compare our lives to others instead of focusing on our own. We idolize celebrities and influencers for living extravagantly, literally wasting money because they can. I am tired of the constant hype for new fashi...

Filed under Opinion

A concerning, disgustingly large amount of high schoolers scoff at the idea of community college. A few weeks ago, this one ignorant, ugly 12th grade boy named Peter (I can name him. He doesn’t go to this school, it’s fine) asked me what colleges I applied to. I told him I only applied to LBCC, and...

I remember the last time I took sex education, it was in my seventh grade health class. I was surprised to find out in highschool that sex ed was not a required class. Sure, health is taught but not necessarily enforced. I was supposed to take a semester of health in biology freshman year, but it seems lik...

Hello Valentines Day!

Filed under Opinion

Valentine’s day. February 14th. Day of love? Wrong. More like the day of reminding people that they’re not loved. Who decided that this will be the day where people will remember to love their significant other’s? Or maybe I’m just not loved. Either way, Valentine’s Day is trash. Why do I feel ...
