Be yourself, no not like that, like everyone else. You want to show people who you truly are but you’re afraid of being judged. You don’t want to be the different one, so you hide in the shadows. Society has a habit of only accepting people if they act a certain way, dress a certain way. But...

We all can remember our first day at Bingham, and most of us can agree that it feels like it was just yesterday. Sophomore year was filled with many firsts, and senior year is filled with even more lasts. What was once our first school dance has now become our last. And what was once our first time watching...

Dear Bingham, We’ve had our ups and downs. When I first met you three years ago, I hated you. You were scary. And huge. I mean, really. Why does your upper floor have to be a reflection of itself?

Just because someone is a complete stranger, doesn’t give you the right to judge them, sounds harsh but it’s true. Everyone can be judgmental, no matter what the environment is. Strangers judge strangers, in different situations, in different times of the day and we’re all guilty of it at some...

Many of us have had that moment: the one where our parents tell us that we don’t show them enough respect and need to be better. That is the point where you might sit there and silently yell, “but I don’t get respect either”, and after that point whenever people start lecturing us on respect, ...

Dear Teachers, As students, there is nothing we appreciate more than you being willing to take the time to help us after school when we’re struggling with understanding an assignment, or when you’re willing to let us retake the latest test because we didn’t do so well the first time around (in...

Time is a concept that humans built. Why is January the beginning of the year?  Who chose the most depressing month, statistically speaking, to be the “fresh start”? Nobody really knows why it is that the first day of the year is when people tend to make goals that are so often forgotten within...
