I’ve only been attending Lakewood High School for 2 years and it’s no joke that it goes by quickly. The change from going to a small school with about 450 students to a much larger school with about 1,500 students was something that so terrifying. […]

What seems like 4 scores but in reality, it was 4 years ago and I was still a freshman. No job, no hair on my face, no varsity letters, no mistakes, no come ups. It was a simple time full of simple pleasures. As senior […]

As senioritis claims many seniors on these last days (including myself), it’s very difficult to find motivation to do anything even slightly related to schoolwork. Even writing this article itself—in which I pretend to have learned some huge concept in high school and need to […]

Senior year–both the best and worst year of high school. The best year because of all the new privileges, prom, and graduation; the worst because it is full of many lasts. The last homecoming, the last basketball game, and the last day of classes. Although […]
