“La La Land” lovers

“La La Land” lovers

Filed under Opinion, Showcase

At first, I did not know what "La La Land" was and I definitely didn’t feel the need to see a movie that included, what I thought to be, the same old plot of a boy and a girl meeting and falling in love. Although Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were my selling factors, I was not counting down the days...

It was an average game day for my teammates and me: the whistle blew and the soccer match began against the Mater Dei Mustangs. Little did I know that the game would change my life. As I go against a player, I fall backwards on the field, hitting my neck and head against the turf causing my vision...

    Intro, Boston: College Loop and Fenway Park When we received the news last year that the 2016 Senior MUN B Trip would visit Boston, MA and Montreal, Quebec, I knew I had to be a part of the trip. And I was not disappointed. Six seniors (including myself) and one junior, accompanied by two chaperones, journeyed together on the pilot tri...

  I love the holidays as much (if not more) than the next person. If you see me at school, you know that I've been wearing Christmas socks since October. Every day, I cross off another day on my calendar as I anxiously await the next holiday. However, there are some that don’t get me as r...

I inhale deeply and the scent of chocolate-covered caramel apples and sweet candy corn cotton candy fills my nose. My mind is overcome with memories of my frequent ...

Filed under Opinion, Showcase

Reminiscing about freshman and sophomore year bring back so many mixed emotions - cons include being the senior target; pros include getting more than four hours of sleep at night. But the real question is: who else is drowning in homework and thanking the Lord if they get in bed before 11 p.m.? Ladies...

It's Thursday morning and I'm stressing about the day I am about to have. As the school day carries on, I can't take my mind off of the fact that I won't be home from golf match until 8:30 p.m. Still, would that give me enough time to shower, eat dinner, do my homework, study and go to bed at a reasonable...

Innocent mistake

Innocent mistake

Filed under Opinion, Showcase

What two words are polar opposites, but are often confused? Innocence and ignorance. Many people define ignorance as a lack of knowledge at hand and associate innocence with a person's purity and cluelessness. The two ideas get mixed up when people use them to accuse others of inappropriate actions....

Dear Campus Ministry, How do we begin to thank you for everything you do for SMCHS? It's nearly impossible to explain how much you do for our student body, but here we are in an attempt to say thank you. You provide a refuge for us. No, you can't protect us from the wrath of AP tests or the str...

Filed under Opinion, Showcase

In Nov. 2015, my family and I took a trip to Indiana and Illinois to look at Notre Dame and Northwestern University. My perspective on college changed drastically after seeing both of these schools.  I learned that dream schools are overrated. The glint of the Golden Dome caught my eye from a distance...

I love getting dolled up for a dance just as much the next person, but that doesn't necessarily mean I want to spend the time and the money to get ready for every single school dance. I don’t have any boy to wrap my arms around or a tie to match my dress to, nor do I need one. Going with a ...
