From the Editor

Every evening for four months my dad made the same old jibe at the dinner table: “So, when’s the paper coming out?” I would tell him for the millionth time that there was no paper, that I was a busy sophomore, that my friends and I would get around to […]

Senior Prank a fiasco once again

May 14, Tuesday night, as this reporter lay dreaming fitfully of Hamiltonianism and the Cuban Missile Crisis, mischief was afoot in the dark halls of GSA. Senior Prank is an annual tradition at many high schools.  Pranks are delicate things, apt to go awry when too many people are involved.  […]

When In Rome, Don’t Build It In A Day

And now, an alphabet rendition of the fantastic GSA Italy Trip: A is for “Allora,” which means “so” or “then” in Italian.  We heard this a lot. B is for Bridge.  Specifically, the bridge that Stephen Salois jumped off into the Arno River in Florence. C is for Cappuccino. And […]

Sickie Skypes to School

Peter Howell’s been under the weather like so many others at GSA, but he’s been making an effort to be in school. On Wednesday he skyped (video chatted) from his sickbed to the GSA library via one of the desktop computers, drawing a small crowd. He also made a virtual […]

Halo 4

November 6, 2012, was an important day for America.  It was the day Halo 4 was released. Now, I’m not a gamer myself — I’ve never taken an arrow to the knee, I’ve never crafted any mines, and I’ve never first-person shot anything.  So, I can’t say I was in […]

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 […]

Aaron Osborne: Voice of the People

People who speak out during assemblies usually have something to say, but Aaron Osborne’s interruptions are really just outbursts of teen angst.  “I just want food,” he admits; “I don’t care for assembly.  I just want break.” When asked if he customarily thinks before speaking, he said, “What do you […]

Senior Prank Only Fun for Seniors

Picture this: the hallways are dim, and the thermostats have been kicked up to a sweltering 75ºF.  The cafeteria is empty, and the lunch tables are all jammed into the boy’s locker room showers.  The cafeteria chairs are in the vault.  Trash cans are in the gym.  A swimming pool […]
