I literally cry all the time. And it's not a cute, girly kind of cry where your face scrunches up like a puppy dog and tears fall in perfect lines down your cheeks. I'm more of a blubbering, puffy-eyed, nose-running kind of crier. The ugly kind. All the time. And I don't just cry when I'm sad either. Fr...

Balancing the Books

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...

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 ...

Leaving school. A lot of students do it. A lot get caught. A number of students leave the school during lunch, and recently administrators have been cracking down on students who leave for a quick lunch at Sonic or Chick-fil-a. The problem is that cracking down on students leaving isn’t going...
