Laura’s Diary #5: 18 and struggling

Laura Angle, Guest Writer

October 30, 2015

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.

May 18, 2015

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...

You know that scene in Sleeping Beauty, the animated one, not Maleficent, where the fairies fight over what color Aurora’s dress should be? And they change it back and forth from pink to blue and back again? That’s a pretty good representation of my weekend. On Saturday after my mom picked me...

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t seen, or at least heard of, the documentary Blackfish. There has been plenty of debate about SeaWorld and the treatment of their animals. Since the airing of the documentary in 2013 on CNN, ticket sales have dropped, entertainers have canceled appearances, and...

After impatiently waiting for nine months to see the little person who kicked me non-stop, gave me horrid morning sickness, tossed my self esteem down the drain, and broke me out into hot flashes in the middle of winter, my beautiful son was born on Sunday, November 9 at 10:06 p.m.

Honestly Sincere in the Middle of the Street

Emma Garcia, Online Editor

March 11, 2015

I haven’t had a full night’s sleep since March 1st (at least). I have also realized that on last Wednesday, I spent more time in the theater than at my house. I have paint-stained clothes and bags under my eyes and a room that’s filled with things I carried into my room and dropped on the floor...

March 7, 2015

At the Grammy’s this year, Sam Smith won four awards and in his acceptance speech, he thanked his ex-boyfriend who broke his heart and because of him “he had four Grammys.” His speech was given high praise by all kinds of media and has become a staple on Tumblr. But as much as I enjoyed his...
