When I walked into this school as a timid freshman it seemed so big and so vast. I was a little fish dropped into what was- at the time- a very large pond.

As fall fully emerges, we are pleasantly familiar with the season’s iconic features.  Warm, gingerly dusted pumpkin spice lattes.  The crunch of freshly fallen leaves beneath one’s favorite pair of boots.  And the near invisible sun, just barely peeking out from behind the grey clouds.  Yet s...

There has always been some distorted horror behind the red nose and tacky face paint. But, Pennywise the Dancing Clown will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering when he might appear next. Based on the 1986 Stephen King novel, “IT” emulates and amplifies the suspense of the original pu...

Curled up as far back in my seat as I could sit, I watched the movie in front of me. Too upset to watch but too enthralled to look away, my eyes darted back and forth between the screen and the seats in front of me. The film, “Detroit”, did not contain the typical “scary movie” horror. T...

You learn a lot from your own mistakes. This column won’t be a “Survival Guide to High School.” That book or article doesn’t exist-- if it did, all of us would’ve read it.
