This message, written in bold white letters, appeared in Stride's latest commercial about one of their newest flavors, Mega Mystery.

When I go to lunch, I get one piece of pizza, and a canned drink. The cost? 2 dollars, and 75 cents. Read More »...

MGMT to release Congratulations

April 10, 2010

Filed under Editorials

There are many people who do not know who MGMT is. However, with their catchy electro-rock pop sound, I don't see why anyone shouldn't know of them. They are mostly known for their first album, Oracular Spectacular, which was released in 2008. Popular hits from this album include "Kids," "Time to Pretend," and "Electric Feel." Personally, I think the entire album...

I’m now into my third year of high school, and I still remain unsure about what I want to do after I graduate. I know what I enjoy and what I despise, yet I still cannot answer someone when they ask me, “What do you want to do after you graduate?” Read More »...

Kids no longer act their age

April 4, 2010

Filed under Editorials

Just a month ago, I stood at a Kohl’s register ready to check out, when I saw a little girl standing with her mother in line behind me. While she was clearly less than half my age, she had what was very obviouslyover twice the amount of products in her hands, waiting to be purchased. And, stuffed in her pocket (because her hands were occupied at ...

WEAR: Toms

April 4, 2010

Filed under Editorials

I stole a friend’s pair of Toms the other day and was pleasantly surprised. Though they’re not exactly the newest thing on the market, they’re probably the most practical. They’re lightweight, affordable and comfortable; what more could you ask for? They come in more styles than I can count to, and though I was hesitant about them at first, t...

But this myopia was pervasive throughout the article, which seemed to imply that all gamers are idiotic slackers with supr...

Spending puts nation in debt

April 4, 2010

Filed under Editorials

However, as a teenage girl who enjoys shopping as much as the next, I pride myself on knowing a thing or two about saving the almighty dollar. I know that to save money, you simply don’t spend money. So it stands to reason...

Think before you speak

April 4, 2010

Filed under Editorials

Everyone has said something they didn’t mean, whether it be out of anger, revenge or just simply because you were over stressed and exhausted. Just recently I have learned that we all need to think before we open our mouths or click the keys of our phones. Read More »...
