Moving Out

Moving Out

Britney Chen, Online Editor January 21, 2018
Living on your own. The freedom. The independence. You can do whatever you want when you want it and your parents can’t tell you no. It sounds great but reality has a way of slapping you in the face.
Expectations

Expectations

Aubrie Hickmon, News Editor January 9, 2018
Most popular. Most beautiful. Most likely to become a billionaire. This is what life was supposed to be when I grew up.
Off the Grid

Off the Grid

Baylee Vogler, Staff Writer January 2, 2018
Generally, when people are asked what they want to be when they grow up, they don’t answer by saying they want to go off the grid. In fact, whenever I mention this, I get the sympathy pat on my head and the, “Oh sure honey; dream big.”
Tall, Blonde, and Blue Eyed

Tall, Blonde, and Blue Eyed

Abi Lingam, Staff Writer January 2, 2018

The Perfect Family

The Perfect Family

Maddy Reagan, Staff Writer December 24, 2017
When I was younger I had dreams, a little too ambitious of dreams but they were desires nonetheless. I planned my future on out-of-reach wishes about who I would marry when I was older. In retrospect, it’s a little zealous to believe that 8-year-old Maddy could actually date a celebrity like Zac Efron, but I convinced myself that I too, was famous.
Having Superpowers

Having Superpowers

Baylee Vogler, Staff Writer December 22, 2017
A lot of kids dream about being a superhero. Having some kind of special ability or suit you can jump into and fly away. This was my dream when I was younger, and it still is today. However, when you look at the basics of having superpowers, you start to realize how unrealistic they really are.
Imagination

Imagination

Kallie Brown, A&E Editor December 22, 2017
Before the era of apps and Instagram, kids’ time was spent outdoors, frolicking in the grass and dirty backyards. The worlds we imagined in our minds became reality for days at a time.
Prince Charming

Prince Charming

Lexi Sampson, Staff Writer December 22, 2017
Whenever anyone mentions the name ‘Prince Charming’, an image of a tall, muscular guy with perfect hair, teeth, and eyes that can knock your socks off comes to mind. Unfortunately, that image of the amazing man sweeping us off our feet —literally— while battling a dragon at the same time usually ends up not being realistic. At least, it definitely wasn’t for me.
