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 ...

My freshman year, I had decided that I wanted to just get through my first year of high school and maybe do a few sports. I had always thought about trying out a choir, but I didn't decide until the end of freshman year when I tried out for show choir. This decision has changed my high school career...

Walking down the trodden halls of Skutt Catholic for the last few times is a bittersweet moment. Each senior has their own exciting direction moving ahead, but looking back at the past four years also reveals their uniquely individual high school experience.

A theatrical performance’s main focus is, undeniably, to entertain. Another focus that is more often overlooked is to spread a message, to create an awareness inside the viewers that was not present before. Using the arts to spark consciousness about a particular subject is a highly effective way to...

Like many stories of bad decisions go, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Back in February, I had the chance to take an AP Psychology exam, an opportunity to earn a college credit that would be nearly universally accepted. Since I was already dual enrolled for the psychology course through th...

Suppose you place a cat in a box with a device that will release a poisonous gas at a random moment, killing the cat (Theoretically, of course. No cats were harmed in the writing of this article). After some time passes, you open up the box. Now the question arises: is the cat dead or alive when you...

It's important to always take advice with a grain of salt, I learned this the hard way. I was told to take AP classes to get some college credits early, instead I took actual college classes prior to my senior year. Unfortunately, following my brief stint of classes, I'm on academic probation at Metrop...

I always knew that I'd do whatever it took to avoid getting a job in food service in high school. Fast food and waiting jobs are high-paying, pretty straightforward, and heck, they hire sixteen year-olds - so I can see what makes students often choose dim steakhouses or drive-thru windows. Though...

Eleven days. Eleven short days stand between me and the satisfaction that, after four years of blood, sweat and especially tears, I will be moving on to college. An approximate 1,460 days have passed in preparation for the night that I receive my diploma and head confidently into the unknown world of...
