The last time that she went to Starbucks they misspelled her name, again. Of course, she says nothing about it and moves on. But not before she snapchats her 75 streaks about it. The Basic White Girl™ is a fascinating creature that functions at a relatively fast pace socially and underwhelmingly ...

As I tore open the letter with a return address from the state penitentiary, resentment bubbled from deep within my stomach. The nausea became progressively more potent as I skimmed over each word. I noticed his handwriting and grammar were worse than before as I involuntarily dismissed every word, ...

According to National Geographic, North Carolina University studied the dialogue of 12 Disney princess movies. 60 percent of the compliments given to the princesses were related to their appearance and only nine percent related to abilities. Some may read that with no discomfort, believing that being cal...

High school is kind of like one of those songs that comes on and when it does, you pause and go “this is such a good song,” not because it’s your favorite or even because it makes you think of a time that was good, although it can, but it takes you back to a certain season in your life where may...

Traveling from A wing to E wing at LHS can be a long and frustrating trip at times. The crowded halls, students everywhere and trying to make it to your next class on time can be tough and annoying. Trying to make it to your next class can result in an LHS student doing something such as walking fast...

Twitter is the home of memes, embarrassing videos and virtually anything funny. Anyone who has an account knows that when something goes viral, nearly everyone on Twitter will see it. This isn’t surprising considering there are 974 million existing accounts to this day. But another topic has taken Tw...

For some, cooking is a talent. For others, cooking is a hobby. For me, cooking rings off all alarm bells. Cooking is an activity that most people are good at, however I am most definitely not one of those people. The moment I saw smoke coming from the microwave and opened the microwave to see sizz...

PDA: Public Display of Affection. Something that myself and plenty of other students at LHS are uncomfortable seeing while walking down the halls. Love is a beautiful thing, really it is, but while at school, there’s no need to show your love by making out or hanging all over each other. These ...

After this year, reality will hit and I will officially be on my own. Since I was little, I have always been independent and could not wait until the day I was able to play by my own rules. But now that the time is inching closer, I cannot believe that I am almost there. Especially considering I still...

In my recent years, I have developed an appreciation for hygiene. I brush my teeth, I clip my fingernails, I put deodorant on and I shower. Most of these tasks are fairly simple one would think, however it is not so. Some people in their twisted and corrupt minds think that it is sanitary to shower ...

Journalism as we know has taken its final breath. Since the popularization of the Internet, print journalism has been holding on to its last ounce of life. The future of journalism lies in social media, multimedia and artificial intelligence. The journalism industry has already seen the effect that social...

“When will I ever need to use this?” It has been said by every student who has walked through the doors of LHS. Sitting in a math class, students wonder when they will ever need to use DeMoivre's Theorem or when they will need to identify a horizontal or vertical shift of a graph. Teachers g...
