It seems like everyone has that constant pressure to be perfect at everything. High school students feel obligated to maintain a 4.0 GPA all throughout high school, join as many varsity sports as possible, while also holding down a job. This pressure is causing unnecessary stress and anxiety in young adults making them feel like a failure if they come short of perfect.

Summer is on its way, no matter how much the teachers try to pretend it’s not. The sun that leaks into our airtight building and the birds singing to us on our way inside all call us away from our textbooks. The end of the school year is always the same but every year we will wait as anxiously for the last bell of the year as Troy Bolton and as his East High Wildcats did in High School Musical 2.

Leaving Bingham High School is never easy for anyone. This school is so amazing, and the atmosphere and school spirit are like none other. Seniors are leaving for college, some of our favorite teachers are turning to a new page in their life, and I’m moving.

High school is supposed to be the “best years of your life”, but with so much more to discover and learn past high school, that just isn’t true.

You’re running as fast as you can. Your breath is laboring, heavy in your ears. You can see the graduation “finish line” in the distance, and all you can think is “Almost there. You can make it. You’re almost there.” Just when victory seems in reach and you can see the graduation podium, you feel yourself start to fall. Your body starts to tip, and you see the ground rushing up to meet you.

One of the most important inventions of modern times is the internet. It is so important in our lives that it is now regarded as a necessity. But while the internet might be educational, informative, and very useful, we’re not using it in the right way, it’s not serving its main purpose, and we’re becoming dependent on it.

While there’s no mystery (unless it’s who stole Kourtney's dog), no emotion provoking scenes (although we did almost cry over Kylie’s baby video), and there’s not really any plot point (besides women fighting for roses;) I will defend with my life, the right to watch reality TV.

We get it: high school is hard. Students have gone through twelve years of waking up at a dastardly time, sitting still for up to eight hours, and being talked to, rather than talked with. Towards year eleven and twelve, we become tired of following the exact same routine day after day.
