Most basketball analysts agree that the greatest team to ever touch the court is the ’96 Chicago Bulls led by superstar Michael Jordan. Jordan and the Bulls set a NBA record for most wins in a regular season with an overall record of 72 wins and 10 losses. The Bulls would finish that year as NBA...

I think I’m in denial about leaving high school. Of course, it’s hard to tell if you’re, you know, ACTUALLY in denial. Mostly because denial is not admitting that something is happening and basically lying to yourself, but I’m fairly sure I am. Almost entirely sure, for a matter of fact. ...

Out of all the ceremonies of the extravagant award show season, the Oscars takes the cake as the most significant, as the coveted Academy Award has become the hallmark of a performer’s career since the first ceremony in 1929. But with all this year’s nominees of the acting category being white, it...

You know that feeling when you learn about something and then suddenly it’s everywhere? I’ve been having that feeling constantly the last several months. It seems like every movie and show I watch has something to do with someone’s senior year in high school. Frankly, it’s maddening. I know wha...

I know there are many options for my post this week (I know many seniors will never forgive me for forgetting powder puff), but I have one topic that seems perfect for this Thanksgiving week. Let me set the scene: My mom and I were in San Francisco to see If/Then with Idina Menzel. The show start...

If you have heard anything about my life these past few weeks, you could assume this post is about one of two things: college applications, or the fact that Cody thought he lost his pants and definitely lost his ID. Both relate to identity crises, but the former is a topic I think is more representative ...

Dear Diary, So much has changed over the past ten months. It seems like just yesterday I had Jack, and now he has said his first word, can crawl all over the house (and gets into everything possible), Drew and I are now engaged, and I’m in college. Every Saturday, Jack and I walk down to Mr....

Most sports fans would say the more exhilarating and exciting sports to watch are the ones with male participants. Viewers prefer to watch the NBA instead of the WNBA and would rather watch men’s boxing than women’s boxing. Male sports take the spotlight away from female sports because of the often aggressive nature and fast pace associated with sports like football and basketball. However women’s sports have been gaining both prestige and viewers as recent momentous events have escalated its fan base.

A few weeks ago, the voting for the student government class next year occurred. Maybe for the other grades this is a momentous occasion (the junior class president race is heating up, after all), but for the juniors that are about to be seniors (take a second for the panic to sink in), voting was a...

A few months ago, I went and saw Mockingjay and Natalia and I each got a large soda. Now this was not just a large soda. This was a LARGE soda that was bigger than my face. I got it because it was refillable and we would be there for a while. I regretted this because that thing was heavy. While carrying...
