You were there on the glorious day that its grill was first ignited. People told you that they wouldn’t dare go near that concessionaire whose welcome sign consisted of what appeared to be paint and/or sharpie on an irregularly-shaped piece of plywood. But since that first fateful trip to that hot dog...

Your friends told you to, "chill out" and "give it a few weeks", but such novices needn’t be listened to. You’re in high school now, and what you’re preparing for is no middle school dance at the local community center: this is the real deal. It doesn’t matter that you’re quieter than a kitt...

Others simply consider it a temporary wall, just another necessity of the construction operation. But to you, it’s so much more. Anything could lie behind that nondescript wall outside of Schneider and Yuen’s rooms: an excavation of alien artifacts, Narnia, Deletis’s secret hideout —the possi...

Since the beginning of the school year, it seems like there has been a lot of negative talk about the senior class among staff members.

It takes a crowd to create a chant

Storm Bermudez

Filed under Opinion

It took me four assemblies to realize that our chant spelled "victory." The feeling of being encircled and confined by a crowd, the sounds of yelling adolescents, and the smells of perfumed (or otherwise) individuals—assemblies are a sensory nightmare.

Flashback: three whole years ago, every Friday the school was abuzz. Each minute seemed to tick by extra slowly, as eager eyes wandered toward clocks in anticipation of the nights event’s.
