Walking Through History

Walking Through History

Bob Killgore, Staff Reporter

August 22, 2016

When my family and I planned our vacation to Germany, the first thing we planned to do was visit a concentration camp. I was excited for this but I knew that it would be very powerful. I would walk in the footsteps of millions of prisoners who suffered unimaginable torture. The concentration camp I...

An Approach to Change

An Approach to Change

Allison Heithoff, Editor-in-Chief of Quintessence

August 22, 2016

Change causes all of us to experience a similar feeling: some call it jitters, butterflies in our stomach, or just plain nerves. This feeling has accompanied many people first entering the doors of Skutt Catholic. There is a piece of all of us, some bigger than others, that freezes at the thought of ...

One Little Kid Changed My Life Forever

One Little Kid Changed My Life Forever

Kayley Anderson, Editor-in-Chief

August 15, 2016

We live in a land of privilege. Now I’m not saying that to be preachy or to negate the fact that there are those in our country who struggle with poverty on a daily basis. I’m saying it because we, as students of a private school, all live in houses with sturdy roofs and we are pretty much guaranteed...

Music Mania

Music Mania

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

August 15, 2016

Over the past 17 years my music taste has evolved from Disney songs to my dreaded country phase to my now relatively diverse mix of genres. Being such an avid music lover, of course, comes with the curse of an empty wallet due to painfully expensive concerts and this summer was certainly no exception. Within...

Reflections

Reflections

James Keeley, Op/Ed Editor

May 9, 2016

When I realized that this was the last article of the year my mind came to a bit of a standstill. What I should write about was a question that bounced around in my head for a while. Then the rough draft was due, then the final draft, and here on this Sunday night as I sit down to write I still don't...

To Our Editors

To Our Editors

Kayley Anderson, News/Feature Editor

May 9, 2016

Dear Gib and Klem, First of all, I'd like to say that I will try to make this as not sappy and painless as possible. Second of all, I'd like to say that it will most likely end up as sappy and painful to those of you reading. Third of all, I'm sorry about that but not really. Now when I first en...

A Few More Mind Thoughts

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

May 9, 2016

I bought a quart of vegetable Lo Mein from Hy-Vee When I was told that I could write a weekly column, I envisioned more of a "Miss Nancy's Advice Column," like in Drake and Josh. Turns out, though, no one is asking me for dating advice. In hindsight, that makes sense. In current sight, that...

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Molly Gubbels, Social Media Editor

May 2, 2016

The final chords to "I Feel Home" by O.A.R blast as I pull into the driveway of my small ranch style house. I open the car door and look at the "sold" sign in my front yard with an impending sense of dread. Without much input on my side, my parents made the hasty decision to move into a new hou...

The #BrokeTeen

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

May 2, 2016

Remember when Kylie Jenner bought a house at the age of 18? Remember when you didn't? Ah, the lifestyle of your modern-day broke teen. I have been working for the past three years, and after a series of events, including a car purchase and all around bad luck, I really have nothing to show for...

Adventurous Eating

Adventurous Eating

Kayley Anderson, News/Feature Editor

May 2, 2016

Now I don’t know about you, but one of my first priorities when I travel isn’t always what I’m gonna eat while I’m gone. I’m usually so focused on things like museums or famous landmarks that food becomes somewhat of an afterthought. So, naturally, when a group of myself and three other...

The Secret Life of the Vegan Teenager

The Secret Life of the Vegan Teenager

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

April 4, 2016

In my past life, actually this time last year, I was, of all of the God forsaken nouns, a vegan. What is this? A "veajan?" Is the "g" silent? Oh, super close, my beef state companions. Whipping out the dictionary printed on organic compost paper, one will find, "veg·an ˈvēɡən/ noun a person...

My Snapchat Story

My Snapchat Story

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

March 29, 2016

I am completely aware that Snapchat has been around for almost five years now, but each of my attempts to fall into this hip trend have failed. I have had an account for about two years, and have racked up a whopping 2,817 points. Sorry, not trying to brag. My latest spark of interest began last Saturday....
