With warm weather around the corner, you will see a wave of girls walking in with shorts and tank tops. They are as happy and eager as they possibly can be. Then all of a sudden a cold finger taps you on the shoulder and says in a very sour and old voice, “you need to go change because your (insert...

I love all the hype that you guys provide for some of our bigger football games like LT and Glenbard West. You make some fairly entertaining videos every time we play LT in basketball, football, and even soccer. I’m sure the athletes would love it, if every game atmosphere was modeled like the atmosphere...

You paid money to watch this movie right. You probably also paid a large amount of money for that food in your lap, right. Why is it then that you want to talk to your friends while the movie is going on? You didn’t have to buy a movie ticket to do that, you could have just stayed at home while we,...

  Welcome to prison. Correction. High school. The colossal hazel, chocolate, and caramel colored building looks promising from the outside, but don’t let that fool you because from the inside it mocks a jail. The cinder block classrooms, dull moldy eggshell color walls, and sketchy air returns...

When I introduce myself to others, I don’t put my hand out and say “Hello, my name is (insert test score here)”. Because I am more than that, that is not a valid representation of who I am, and you should not view it as such. It is a merely an assessment that shows who is willing to pay thousands...

Dear Hillary Clinton Supporters, I am truly shocked on how you would even consider voting for such a vile person. Hillary Clinton has been in politics for more than 30 years, and what has she done? Mostly things that have hurt us, such as voting for the Iraq War and supporting the NAFTA trade deal....

Dear Voss Water Aficionados, I don’t like you. I don’t like the way you boast, flaunt and parade your self-centered water bottle as if it’s the best thing to happen since the invention of sliced bread. If there were ever a water bottle with a superiority complex, your bottle would be the one....

To the kids I babysit,   You guys are right, I am so malicious because I won’t let you jump off the top of the 30 foot slide at the park. I know you think all I do is yell at you, but maybe if you could listen for five seconds without turning your back and saying “whatever” we could get alo...

Dear Unknown Girl, The other day your actions made me evaluate myself as a person. As we were both walking into the school doors, I was a couple feet ahead when something I had no control over happened. Since manufacturers think ladies don’t deserve decent sized pockets in their jeans, the wrinkly...

Dear people who think they can whisper, I get very annoyed by you people. People shush you but you continue to keep talking only much softer than before, it doesn’t make a difference. This happens all the time when we take tests. You softly get up making sure you don’t disrupt anyone...
