I don’t know where I belong yet. After celebrating my 16th birthday, the realization hit me forcefully. My friends told me happy birthday, like they’re expected to, and made it feel like I made a meaningful piece to their lives. To many others, it’s endearing, but when my friends make the effor...

Hey, Lauren. I read your column. Fixed it for you. People with anxiety aren’t perfect. We’re painfully aware of that. Yeah, “nobody’s perfect,” but you should love a person despite their flaws, not manipulate their flaws for your benefit. When you fall in love with someone with anxiety...

Before seeing the “Beauty and the Beast,” I didn’t really understand all the hype surrounding it. It’s just retelling the same old story, right? Dead wrong. This live-action remake of the “tale as old as time” succeeds in accurate retelling while adding more depth and backstory to the cha...

With the second project in two weeks, Future delivers yet another top selling album but this time with a different tone. Future had only two features on “HNDRXX”: The Weeknd and Rihanna. Future backed away from his usual trap-style music and went for a more modern pop sound. He focused more on...

Unlike many of Ed Sheeran’s previous albums, “Divide” is a compilation of exotic, unique and unusual beats put together with one similarity—they don’t have any. Although “Divide” doesn’t make much sense as a whole, Sheeran’s new music is a great upbeat release for spring. He’s back...

Where my White Privilege Got Me

  The side of the road. My white privilege landed me on the side of the road, comfortably weeping in my car over a Black Eyed Peas song— five minutes from my thriving suburban neighborhood. I really am as privileged as it gets. It is often assumed that because I am white I don’t r...

The feeling that ran through my body on October 23, 2015, was exhilarating, and it is a feeling that has yet to be matched. The performance that played in front of my eyes that evening is still one of the most dramatic and heart-wrenching games I have ever been a part of. Through all of the agony an...

From the outside, Allen High School looks calm, like everything is at peace, but what’s going on  inside is the complete opposite. Hallways are packed to the brim and every seat is filled in tight classrooms. And, when a massive group of sophomores blocks a stairwell and the entrance to G hall duri...

I have reached the point where high school is equally as hard as it is enjoyable in all aspects. One of the components that has troubled me most is the concept of not giving up when school challenges me the most. Junior year really has been as stressful and difficult as people in the past have describ...

Technology has introduced the world to once unthinkable aspects of life that are now brushed off, as if it has become normal to be immersed within the world of anything electronic. Now I am hypocritical in saying that, because I too am a heavy user of my phone and computer, and they have both become norma...

For those who may not know, “Stranger Things,” a Netflix original show, released a trailer at the Super Bowl. The fandom lost it, and I did too. “Stranger Things,” also released the episode names, causing people to start speculating about the new season.   Welcome to my theory. To start us off, let's...
