Life-Changing Music

All-state music is considered one of the highest honors in the state for a musician. I was given the chance to sing with the choir and I won’t soon forget it. I chose to audition because it’s a great opportunity to be a better musician, and I also had a bit of motivation from a friend. The day...

I want to say that I understand that not everyone cares about AP style rules or spends entire drives thinking of argument tactics in case they need to defend the necessity of the Oxford Comma. I don’t expect everyone to- the world would be a boring place. It is just these small, small things- jaunty...

Another homecoming rolls around, and with it another crowning of royalty. You sit in the crowd of the commons, and, as the same couple that was crowned last year finds their heads ornamented once again, you survey the commons while your mind wanders. Your eyes eventually land on a friend sitting next...

During the summer of my freshman year, I ran conditioning for the upcoming cross country season. Some of my friends were running and I decided to run with them. I was not good at the sport and didn't want to continue, but the people and coach Elliott persuaded me to keep going in the sport. As I reflect...

When I came to the United States as an exchange student, I thought I knew everything about American schools. I imagined it would be somewhere between Mean Girls and The Breakfast Club, but I hoped it would be similar to my school in Hungary. I could not have been more wrong. Because let’s be honest,...

Many have called to the stars trying to find other life in the universe, but the call has been unanswered. We know that life on earth is unique, intelligent life even moreso. Humanity has only existing for a blink of the eye in the cosmos, and its existence is not guaranteed. At any moment something...

Wanna hear a joke? Sleep. Yeah, I don't get it either... With life being both exciting and ephemeral, it's disconcerting to hear how highly most people regard sleep. There's nothing less productive than habitually putting on special garments, lying on a mat, and then pretending to be unconscious...

Filed under *Showcase, Column

I've always known what I wanted my profession to be. While the other kids listed off policeman, teacher or doctor, I decided I wanted to be a cardiothoracic surgeon specializing in pediatrics.   Until recently, that dream seemed distant and unattainable in the present moment. However, I was able to...

I finally did it. After numerous attempts and threats, the end of my Newspaper career has come. It took almost as long as it took me to quit Taco Bell, but thankfully I did it myself this time, instead of having a friend impersonate me (thanks Gretchen). In the two and a half years I've been on staff,...

My childhood was sitting on the floor with her by my side. She'd peel grapes, I'd pop them in my mouth like a little bird. I'd smell the flowers in the fabrics of her floral print homemade dresses, thinking the scent of her perfume was the scent of the silken petals on her clothing. I'm taking...

The last three days of my senior year are laid out before me and suddenly everything is coming to an end. Soon I'll clean out my locker and finish up my last few finals and, unfortunately, I'll say my final goodbyes to Skutt and the people within it. With that in mind, my final article goes out to each...

Using the correct logic, anyone can prove anything. This is evident if you ever listen to unintelligent people talk about, well, anything. I decided for my final article as a member of the Skutt Catholic Flightline staff, I wanted to prove this. So, I am going to prove how a boat is not only a water ...
