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,...

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...

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 ...

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. As seniors begin to make their biggest cha...

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...
