After a February weekend with temperatures hitting the mid 70s, I did a lot of thinking. I thought about what shorts to wear, which sunglasses to put on, and where the sunscreen was. And with such a hot weekend, naturally, I thought about climate change too. We are already living in a climate changed ...

It's a question that has puzzled individuals ever since the start of mankind: Is Santa real? Well, to answer that, we need to first answer if we, as a people, as a society, as a generation living on this universe, are real. Take a look in the mirror. Do you see yourself? Or is that just a reflection?...

On November 15, 2016, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was named "The Sexiest Man Alive." On November 16, 2016, I was mad that People Magazine would do me such injustice. I mean, look at me.   Here are the reasons why I should be named the Sexiest Man Alive: Spice factor: This Dwayne kid...

With the presidential election finally winding to a halt, and the president chosen, we can finally begin to focus on the pressing issues that our country faces rather than on the candidates that we are electing to fix them. Though there are many social and economic issues that our country is facing and...

Vine; born Jan. 24, 2013, while hasn’t died yet will most likely die this November. Twitter has announced it will shut down the app down. Like most users, I took videos on vine, and watched videos too, but I had a special connection to the app.  I first met vine in 2014 and right away I felt as...

Nov. 1. 11:54 p.m. One more college app left. Sounds familiar? Don't lie. That's like your life story. You’re thinking I'm going to tell you how bad this is. Well, maybe your college app sucks, but no, you're wrong. Again. You're always wrong. That's why you got a 2 on your ACT. Cramming f...

With Homecoming approaching on Oct. 1, girls are cramming to prepare their outfits. Well, all the girls and me. See fellas, y’all just decide on your outfits two minutes before you get in your car to drive over to take pictures. But not me. That’s why they call me Mr. Steal Yo Girl. Want to get on...

With just one week left of our high school career, a topic that's taken prominence in my mind pertains to my absence at this school. The nationally recognized public high school with (what some may call) an outstanding amount of awards, overwhelming amounts of scholarships given to most students fr...

Senioritis: The state of mind that exists in heaven (or not if you’re Hindu like me ;) ). You’re not allowed to do work even if your life depends on it. Because you’d be too lazy to do it. As a junior that doesn’t want to be a junior because he gets too much homework, has too many tests to...
