During these hard times

During these hard times

  This time is hard. Not like a calculus test or doing thirty push-ups hard. It’s like doing push-ups while taking a calculus test while being stuck in a box. For two weeks.  The hardest part is the not knowing. Whether this will last two weeks or three months. How much of our lives this will i...

Embrace your accent

“Oh, where are you from?” or “Your accent is so interesting!” I can’t count how many times I’ve been told this. And I’m not the only one that faces this problem.  I didn’t know what an accent was until more and more people told me about it. I started to feel there was somethin...

Votes are like ripples. A single stone doesn’t make much of a difference, except for the fact that it disturbs the water around it. It ripples outwards, affecting everything it touches.  Votes are like ripples. Yes, a single stone, a single vote, once cast into the water, drops like a rock, qui...

“Weird,” “creepy,” or “strange” are just a few of the words that buzzed around our school about Joe Jaramillo’s gravestone in the last few weeks. I know that it’s creepy to have the gravestone in front of our school, but the history behind it is much more important than caring about how...

Walking up from the parking lot at 8:00 in the morning with an extremely heavy backpack is already dreadful enough. Being greeted by a gravestone right before I walk into Monarch was absolutely the last thing I needed. Just when I thought Monarch couldn’t get any more unusual, a gravestone is put...

Financial status, physical health, mental state, support system, the plans they have for their futures. These are just a few of the many factors women consider when making a choice. Maybe one of the most important choices of their lives.  The choice of having an abortion or continuing with their pregna...

My grandma gave me a Keto For Women diet magazine when she came to make dinner for us one night.  She was trying to be sweet, trying to encourage me to continue to lose more weight. She had good intentions, but her actions had the opposite effect. It gave me the validation that it was okay to...

People would stop talking about The Office By Connor Nimmons In 2020, I wish that people will stop talking about The Office. Like, come on. It’s been, what, nearly seven years off the air, and you’re still talking about it? Is it that good? This show is mediocre at best. It’s done nothing...

There were 94 school shootings in the United States last year, according to the BBC. Almost one every three days. The facts can’t be questioned, but Boulder Valley School District is trying to treat bullet wounds with band-aids, trying to change large-scale safety issues with small, surface-level chang...

November 28, 2019

I don’t think there has been a single time in my life, from fourth grade up until a month ago, when I wasn’t completely obsessed with my portrayal on social media. I needed the most followers, the most likes, the most comments, the best pictures. It was a constant mission to keep myself near the...
