Halo 4

Senior and Stressed Out

Ms. Rosemeier often asks seniors during the fall what their stress level is.  When she asked me I raised my hand over my head, gesturing vaguely.  “It’s up there,” I said.  I have, quite honestly, stress steaming from the top of my head like I’m a stress factory.  Stress is […]

Reading Into It

“High school life is too busy to read whatever I want to read.”  This is what people told me when I asked if they find any time to read a book while in the hectic throes of high school.  For many, English class presents more than enough reading material, and […]

The Best Part is Ordering People Around

As you may already know, I started this school year looking a bit worse for wear.  With a sling on my left arm and a three-foot-long brace immobilizing my leg, it was hard not to become a spectacle (usually because I happened to be blocking a hallway or two).  A […]
