My Peaked Interest in WikiHow

Avery Jensen, Management Editor

Filed under Columns

Surprisingly, I have gone all my life without getting a manicure. It’s not that I’ve avoided it, I just had never gotten one until homecoming. I broke one nail after two weeks and needed to get it off, so I resorted to the most helpful website Google offers: Wikihow. While I was on there I happened...

Cricket Craze

No student should have to be scared to go to school for any reason. No one should ever be scared of walking through the hallways worried with every step you take worrying about an attack at any moment. You all know what I’m talking about: crickets. Yep, those black beady crickets that haunt our hallways and jump...

Balancing the Books

Filed under Columns, Opinion

It’d been more than three years since I’d read for fun. I’d just been so busy with high school (because isn’t everyone?) and had so much to get done, and every time I’d look at a book, I’d think, “Who has time for that anymore?” I’d taken to piling every book I’d got from fr...

I don’t plan on going to fight in a war. It’s not really my thing, killing and being killed and all that. And I don’t have to worry about it. Unless I decide that leaving my home for some war-zone under the protection of a government-issue rifle and my subpar camouflage skills is the kin...

It is no secret that I'm an avid Bachelor watcher. It has become a tradition that every Monday my little sister and I procrastinate about our homework, sit down in front of our television, and listen to Chris Harrison say, “This is going to be the most dramatic episode,” every single episode. From roma...

Filed under Columns, Opinion

From the Friday leading into Spring Break to the Sunday night before we come back I will spend 51 hours working. 51 hours sitting around a pool watching people swim, hoping they don't drown. 51 hours dreaming about the break I could have had. Sleeping in. Playing video games on my laptop. Eating ...

Flags burning, people bleeding, and belligerent chanting. It’s just another “peaceful” American protest. That's what you do in America when you don't get your way. Sit down in traffic with purple hair and cry injustice. Sure, one of our constitutional rights is to peacefully assemble and protest...

Bump. Bump. Swerve. Bump. Many people think about going to South America as a cruise stop, or a vacation getaway. They think of the sandy beaches and the bright blue tropical waters, a scenery that could take your breath away. Even though South America has these beautiful hot spots, they are not what ...

You start out in little league. You play whatever sport your parents want you to or whatever sport your best friends are going to play. For me, it was PGYA (Pleasant Grove Youth Association) basketball. When I started, I never thought I’d fall in love with the sport, but that’s what happened. And...
