    “Mommy, Ms. McAdams says that we are exchanging valentines next week! Have you gotten mine yet?” questioned a chipper Lacy Stevenson. Mother groaned and slumped onto the worn couch, the bruises on her face evolving into a purplish-yellow. “No, honey, we don’t have the money right now. I...

    When people are young and picture their true love, do they imagine finding them on a dating website? No, they picture themselves running into their love on a crowded street, by finding someone you click with instantly. As they get older people start to lose those ideals of love and begin believing...

    First thing first: I used to be a Twi-Hard. As ashamed I am to admit it, I have shirts that I made saying "Jasper's Angel". I lived, breathed, and loved Twilight to the point of insanity, as did my close-knit group of friends. We watched the movie on the opening night and then spen...

The idea of free love expanded into the acceptance of sexuality in our society today, in both good and poor ways. This development compl...

    Wake up, go to school. Talk to friends, or maybe not-so-friends. Spend your time staring as every teacher talks emphatically as if their class ranks highest on your to-do list. Run laps in P.E., while all the other schools let their kids play dodgeball. Regret thinking that the day you play dodg...

    There are 567 steps between my house and the library. I walk the path at least 50 times a year, and know to duck when the neighbors don’t trim their trees, to jump to avoid where roots have lifted the sidewalk, and to move to the street to avoid the neighbor’s dog on a too-long chain. Be it sp...

    Growing up, a lot changes. In childhood it is unheard of for somebody to say “She’s such a snob” or “He’s a total jock”. Children can play together, and are often able to spend hours on four-square and hide-and-seek. Teenagers argue bitterly over the smallest things, and achieve maxim...

    Those I surround myself with always seem to find themselves in trouble, and me with them. I suspected that this was the case before June 6, 2010, but it required one major time to drive the point home. My desire to help those around me and my desire to do the right thing often conflict, and I disc...

    Dating in high school is a game of strategy. From the top of the proverbial food chain to the bottom, students expect their peers to be attractive and attracted to each other, and to act on it. Some teens go through more partners than pencils, and considering the number of writing utensils littering...

    As my wings stroke through the air, guiding me high, a sense of calm consumes me. I am a bird on the African Savanna, following a pair of elephants on their journey from the mountain valley to the Plains in the West. We are at the beginning of our trek, the mountains still visible and grand in the...

My family has deep roots in the United States Military, and many of my relatives went through the hardships wars pose on our grand nation.

    What makes a hero? Heroes don't have to wear underwear over tights, or have superpowers. Heroes are people that make others lives easier, help others, or just help someone to see that their life has meaning. There are many heroes in this world, but very few are recognized. Here are four ver...

    MR. B. What can I say?? The terror all us students feel when he STORMS down the hall? The meek, terrified feeling we get when his EVIL eyes gaze upon us. Or, in some cases, the anger that bubbles up inside of us until we want to BURST!! One word describes Mr. B best though, absolutely horrible. ...

    As I glide gently up the chairlift, I am both fearful and excited. I know I will be fine, I have been skiing for years, but I still dread the chance of biting it. I am a whole new person on the slopes. I seek out thrills and accelerate over the jumps. I am a snow skier. This isn’t my first ...

In between the two fields, there is a small stream. That stream is used to irrigate those fields. The sweet smelling tall grasses that surround...

    The book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley threw me. Literally. In my advance in reading classic literature, this one was the first. I devoured it, even though the beginning nearly bored me to tears. In the book Dr. Frankenstein is a man who, by many family tragedies, moves to a university town to ...

    I sit here, watching the kitten I saved from the school parking lot only 8 months ago. I've watched her grow, watched her run into walls while playing and run away and come loyally back to her home. And now she's sitting by the window, mewing, and I know she's thinking of freedom. ...

    I have seen articles torn apart by readers. I have seen people to the point of tears because of harsh words said on this very website. I have heard rants and raves about articles that have virtually no structure just because they are about the latest pop sensation. I have read articles I thought ...

    Place yourself in a battle zone. Bombs are going off so close to you that you can feel them whip through the air before settling into the ground with enough impact to knock you off of your feet. The sound is so terrifyingly loud that your ears have gone numb and are ringing with excruciating pain....

    Can you believe this exquisite despair? A torture and pain makes me twist out my hair. Something to make me contort and disfigure, Attempt to find ways not let the sorrow linger. Would you give me my wings, with feathers of down? And let me fly away, no longer held back by my frown? I love you...
