After last week’s list of things that make me sad, I have been requested (by my mother) to do two other lists. This week will be a list of things that make me happy and then next week is a list of thing that make me mad. Most likely this week’s list will consist of things like food and next week’s...

Every week, I have trouble deciding what to write about. Well, maybe not every week. Some weeks have things like Powder Puff and bursts of inspiration about french fries to write about. But most weeks I am forced to decide what I can write about that won’t make me want to shoot myself halfway through. This...

I spent a lot of time trying to decide what to write about this week. Especially since, let me be honest, when the semester ended I was a little lazy when it came to this blog. My last post was on December 3. It is now January 15. See, I'm even a day late. It’s sort of pathetic. Actually, it is very...

Over the break my mom sent me an article from “Rolling Stone” about the University of Virginia that was posted on November 19. Its contents made and continue to make me sick and question society. It was about the rape culture that goes on at the campus and the continued cover up by the school. Their...

Last Friday was the annual Powderpuff game. It would be hard to not know what the result was. If you do not know, let me enlighten you. Juniors won 14-6. The school will never be the same. Going into the game, many people thought that the seniors would win this year. This was because not only did...

Last Friday, McNair continued their infamous tradition of vandalizing the school on the day of the football game between Bear Creek and McNair. Usually this involves some kind of sign calling us “ghetto” and “ratchet” but this year McNair decided to cause even more damage by breaking out their...

At the beginning of the year, Mrs. Duffel asked if anyone would be interested in writing a blog for the online portion of the newspaper. It sounded intriguing but the only reason I really decided to do it because other people wanted me to. Anyway, I decided to do it and in the middle of one of my...

The Magic of Couches

Is it odd that when I think about comfort, I think about a couch? With the weather changing and it getting dark earlier I keep wanting to just curl up on a couch and watch TV or something. I don’t think I’m the only one. Some classic TV shows have appreciated the magic of a good couch as well. Think...

Question: if someone is on Homecoming Court, do the athletes run out with their sports? I doubt it because the girls are always wearing their fancy dresses but still, I thought I’d ask. If they don’t run out with their sports, I have an idea. I would like to be on Homecoming Court next year. Not that otherwise I would want to or be on Homecoming Court, but still. I will campaign. I will make it my mission to not have to run.

I’m here to make you all an offer: would you like to buy a ten-year-old boy who’s obsessed with comic books? If not, I’d be willing to pay you in return for taking him. No? Well, okay.

Think about it, cigarettes give you lung cancer, pot makes you lose brain cells, but fries? Fries are for the quick snack, to complete a lunch when you have no money for anything else, for single parents to keep their kids happy when not even the Frozen soundtrack will do, for late night cramming sessions, they’re there for us no matter what we’re feeling as we get to the drive-thru. If only they didn’t kill us.

Rerun Hell

Rerun hell /ˈrēˌrən hel/: When you are watching an entire series but because you are behind and the newest seasons aren’t on Netflix yet, you are stuck trying to record all of them so you can somehow eventually watch them in order (sometimes takes years).
