How I Failed College Before Even Graduating High School

How I Failed College Before Even Graduating High School

Sam Wiegand, Sports Editor

May 8, 2017

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...

The Life of A Teenage Library Employee

The Life of A Teenage Library Employee

Lily Yates, Quintessence Copy Editor

May 1, 2017

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...

What High School Never Taught Me

What High School Never Taught Me

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

May 1, 2017

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...

It's that time of year again as NFL teams grade prospects and determine what college athletes can help their team win the coveted Lombardi trophy. The first round of the draft is filled with gems and superstars athletes, like Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers in the draft's past. This first round draft...

Newspaper Sucks

Newspaper Sucks

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

April 24, 2017

Some may think that being allergic to something like pollen is odd, but not much is stranger than the fact that I am “allergic” to newspaper. The most ironic part is that I am part of newspaper, but luckily Skutt Catholic no longer has a physical copy, or I would be done for.   Now, I...

I Replaced My Sister and My Closest Friends With a Mule

I Replaced My Sister and My Closest Friends With a Mule

Maria Miller, Birdfeed Editor

April 24, 2017

I’ll admit it; I swapped out the three most important people in my life with a mule named Shoelace. Now don't get me wrong, I didn’t literally exchange three people for an animal like some medieval bartering system, but they were the direct cause of my impulsive purchase and trek down to Oklahoma. A cou...

Famous Last Words

Famous Last Words

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

April 24, 2017

They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but you can judge it by its words. Whether it be a person, a movie, a favorite novel or a play, the things that we often find to be most interesting are what the people say. About two years ago, I started compiling a list of all of my favorite quotes and it'...

Seahawk Fan’s First Experience of Seattle

Seahawk Fan’s First Experience of Seattle

Bob Killgore, Posters Coordinator

April 17, 2017

Once I heard that the national high school journalism convention was being held in Seattle this year, I was ecstatic. Ever since 2010, when Russell Wilson joined the Seahawks, I have been a fan of them and desired to travel to Seattle for an extended period of time to truly be a part of the Seahawk's...

A World Featuring Hoops and Escape

A World Featuring Hoops and Escape

Bob Killgore, Posters Coordinator

April 3, 2017

As I watched the closing seconds of the Butler versus North Carolina last Friday, I went upstairs to get my hat to play basketball in my front yard. I was angry and frustrated with Butler's loss because they are my favorite college basketball team. To get over the loss and keep my mind off it, I sho...

A Generation of Journalism

A Generation of Journalism

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

March 27, 2017

For many years, students have been building Skutt Catholic's Journalism program practically from the ground up. The Flightline newspaper is comprised of 16 immensely talented writers and one devoted teacher, but somewhere within all of the writing and editing lies the reason that we all decided, f...

A Dairy-Free Lifestyle

A Dairy-Free Lifestyle

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

March 13, 2017

Ever since I can remember, I have been absolutely obsessed with anything dairy. Considering that one of my first home videos chronicles my journey through a bowl of mac and cheese, this certainly isn't shocking. I've made my way through years of ranch drenched veggies and plates on plates of nachos,...
