No Sleep

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

January 14, 2020

We're all tired. We got so used to a satisfying amount of sleep over the break, only to have it ripped from our hearts by the horrendous monster we call the second semester. Yesterday I woke up during my first period only to find that half of the class had their eyes shut. Either they were thinking really...

The End of Winter Break

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

January 13, 2020

We were so close to happiness. I genuinely forgot school existed until the night of Jan. 7 when my mom asked me if I could pick my brother up from school. I was devastated. Now, we are back to early mornings and ID's bringing our outfits down. Not to be dramatic, but this is the greatest pain I have...

Not Buying Yearbooks In 2020

Nina Banks, Staff Writer

January 12, 2020

The ancient art of the yearbook almost seems obsolete due to the increasing use of technology. Put your phone down and indulge in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual satisfaction of a book. Not buying yearbooks is so 2019.

Closed Campus

January 9, 2020

With a closed campus, we are confined to cafeteria food or random snacks and leftovers from home. Also, students still find a way around this rule, so it is not effective.

Cold Weather

The heat was painful, but the cold is worse. Texas "sweaters" are not thick enough to protect from the cold that none of us are used to.

Last-Minute Grades

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

December 9, 2019

As the semester comes to a close, teachers realize they do not have enough grades in Skyward, so they assign last-minute projects and tests to their panicked students. This would not be a problem if it weren't for every single teacher doing the same thing. For both teachers and students, this time of...

Finals

December 7, 2019

Finals suck. They are an unnecessary obstacle to winter break. When the teacher gives out the review, we sometimes wonder if we ever learned the things we are "reviewing."

Vaping In Class

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

December 1, 2019

Vaping is already unhealthy and gross, and bringing it into the classroom reminds us of this in the worse way. Students need to keep their candy-flavored cancer away from our notes.

Construction

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

October 1, 2019

Construction is everywhere. They start new projects before finishing the old ones. These projects only slow down our commute and make our parents grumpy. One day, we hope to drive down a street without seeing the terrifying gleam of an orange cone or sign.

Starting School At 7:25

Brinley Koenig, Editor-In-Chief

September 24, 2019

No matter how many studies, statistics and sleep-deprived teenagers are presented to the school board, they will not push back our start time. Until then, we will load up on coffee and under-eye concealer. First period is more of an extension of sleep and the waking up process than a real class. We might...
