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 […]

GSA Survives Semester of New Schedule

We heard everything from junior Philip Shaheen’s “the new schedule is junk” to Ms. Jellison’s “it’s better.” A common criticism is that the new schedule doesn’t […]

The Drewth on Sweaterman

I remember the Days of the Hero, or so they were called. Those were the good days. The safe days. Mothers with their babies could leave their homes without fear of being mugged or shot. Pedestrians could conduct their daily business without being run over by rogue motorists in hijacked […]

The Drewth About Spam

Spam.  Spam spam spam.  What is it?  Where did it come from?  There are those of us who adore it, and those who despise it.  Then there are those, like me, who have never tried it and have heard various things regarding it.  It seems to me that the prevailing […]

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 […]

The Drewth about Video Games
