How am I?

How am I?

Elisabeth Tossa, Guest Writer

May 29, 2020

      I am not okay. I’m heartbroken, angry, disappointed, frustrated, hopeless, and scared. The first characteristic my peers, teachers, and strangers notice is the color of my skin. Because of something I was born with, I am stereotyped and judged before I can even reveal my true character. I gr...

      Snapchat. It has single-handedly taken the destruction of our generation’s inability to communicate to a whole new level.        It’s no surprise that gen z are a bunch of tech-obsessed teens with problems ranging from trust issues to daddy issues. What is surprising is our generatio...

Pictures of couples dancing, writing letters to each other, receiving flowers as gifts, sharing milkshakes and snuggling up at drive-in movies. Teens in the comments all longing to ...

      You never think it’ll happen to you. Until it does. Two months ago, my parents called me while I was sitting in fourth hour. I was confused; knowing my parents, they would never interrupt school or classes unless it was something unthinkably serious.        They were supposed to be driving to...

“So you must hate men then?” These were the exact words a freshman boy asked when I told him I was a feminist. Is this really what modern day feminism has become equated to? Man-hater?  Of course I don’t hate men. I mean, sure, sometimes they do make me want to rip every single strand of hai...

The Mouse In My House Is A Welcome Guest

The Mouse In My House Is A Welcome Guest

I’ve never understood why people are afraid of mice! As far as wild animals go, they’re the best one to have in your house. Snakes I get being scared of: they’re creepy, crawly, and they’ve got no arms or legs. Freaky! Spiders I definitely understand: they’ve got too many legs, too many eye...
