Dear God, What the hell did I do?!?! What have I done to deserve all this crap that's coming my way? Aren't you supposed to have my back, be on my side, protect me? Don't you care!?!? And yeah, I'm seriously doubting you right now. Well guess what, I'm allowed to do that. How do I know? It's...

If I were a fictional character, I’d be Ginny Weasley

Kylie Yamada, Feature Writer

Who would I be if I was a fictional character? I would probably be a combination of Alina Starkov from the Grisha Trilogy (one of my favorite book series) and Phoebe Heyerdahl from Hey Arnold (because Liz says it works). Alina Starkov is the main character of the book series, and has the unique ability...

To My Future Self: Everything that I put down here will not be original. You know all things that I did know and do know, but you will have the advantage of growing and learning more that I do not. But there are things that I hope you won’t forget, and since I do not always have the best faith in...

God Is Lazy

Aaron Tam, Opinion Editor

March 3, 2017

These past few weeks, my Christian sister has been blazing with passion to convert me into Christianity.

I just didn't want to get involved with all of the doctrines telling me how to live...

Whenever it rains cats and dogs, I always find it to be a PURRfect time to relax at home on my bed. I try my best to stay inside, but school forces meow-t of the house.

I’m Fine

David Hancock, Staff Writer

February 21, 2017

Dear concerned people, I’m fine. Really, I am. Thanks for asking, but it’s ok, I’m fine. I realize that I’m not acting like I’m fine. It’s easier to see when I’m having an off day because I’m usually really loud and smiling all the time, so when I calm down and act like an average...
