A Letter to My Sophomore Self

A Letter to My Sophomore Self

Caitlin Hicks, Staff Writer

May 21, 2020

Dear Sophomore Caitlin, Hi! It must be some sort of weird reading this, right? I’m a junior now, so still Caitlin, but only a little less motivated, a whole lot more sleep-deprived, and a tad bit more hopeless for my future. There are some things I do know now, though, and I know there are a lo...

Goodbye Bingham

Goodbye Bingham

Aubrey Tanner, Editor in Chief

May 21, 2020

 Dear Bingham,  If anyone had told me that my last quarter of high school would be abruptly halted, and that I would say goodbye from a distance, I would not have believed you. I remember the Friday before thinking there was no way the district would close Bingham. I personally am not the most ...

Dear me, First of all, you made it. You’ve been through 12 years of school so far, some better than others, all to get to this point. You’re finally about to graduate! You’ve dedicated late nights, long hours, and sometimes early mornings all to get to this point. And it was worth it. Altho...

This One's For The Seniors!

The class of 2020’s senior year has essentially been cancelled due to a pesky virus, but we shouldn’t dwell on the unfortunate events that we’re in, and rather look at all that we’ve accomplished. As a senior myself, I’ve had my fair share of cancellations, disappointments, and grief due to ...

The end of your senior year is a bittersweet moment. From this point forward, everything changes, from where I live to what I do. I’ll have to get a job, pay bills, and while this will bring with it a lot of worry and a lot of responsibility, I’ll gain something else, something worth every bit of pa...

May 19, 2020

Dear Bingham, This has been quite the adventure, hasn’t it? This year didn’t end the way any of us thought that it would. We’re missing out on things. It’s unfair. But we shouldn’t let this loss take away from what we experienced in these past three years that was meaningful. I know th...

My sister and I have a moderately sizable age gap between the two of us. She, being the first born, and I, the baby—and favorite—of the family, have about a ten and a half year age difference. There are many tense subjects our time together as siblings has produced; fights about her poor taste in ...
