March 14, 2016

As a part of my daily routine throughout this painfully awkward struggle of self-discovery, I dive under the bowels of my bed for a pair of shoes. Among all of the monsters and garbage lay far too many sets of footwear for the average human. While the question as to why I posses such a plethora of...

February 22, 2016

As I sit here in the biting winter air, warmed only by a heavy smoke rising atop a candlelit flame, my soul lies vulnerable to the rhythmic vibrations of aging vinyl. It is I, the millennial hipster. My appreciation for vinyl records goes much further than a passing fad. Even still, the connotations...

The Periscope Plague

Tom Hermanek, Copy Editor

February 22, 2016

A tiresome and disturbing phenomenon is developing in the halls of Skutt Catholic. In the past two weeks, Periscope has gained massive popularity with Skutt Catholic students. Why? To me, this question remains a mystery. For starters, the app is not all that new. In fact, it was first released ...

Dear Mr. Vernon: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was that we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write this essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us, in the ...

"Why is this keyboard so small?"   "How does one Tumblr?"   "Where's the selfie button?" While sitting blankly in front this screen, these shrieks shoot through the air only to bounce off of the eardrums of me, the youth. At one point in life, my proudest moments rested beneath the questi...

A Thought Too Simple For a Pun

A Thought Too Simple For a Pun

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

January 18, 2016

My high school experience has been a period of time largely spent comparing Troy and Gabriella's hip dance moves to an un-choreographed reality. While this lack of preparation explains the regularity of my hallway falls, it doesn't serve to justify the negligence surrounding the necessity of respect. ...

The minimum wage has proven to be a hot button topic across social media sites in recent months, spurred by wage increases like Seattle's to $15/hour.

Let’s Make America Great Again

James Keeley, Op/Ed Editor

September 9, 2015

A man walks to the stage, floppy white hair, face bright orange, and a woman 20 years his junior by his side. The American flags lined up behind him put an uneasy feeling in my gut. His name is Donald Trump, and he wants to be president of the United States. Over the course of the last few months, Trump's...

I’ll Get to It Later, I Promise

Paige Ourada, Copy Editor

February 16, 2015

Coming home from long day of school, the last thing I want to do is open up my backpack, or “bag of doom,” as I like to call it, and begin my homework. After seven hours of lectures, notes, and mind-numbing information, I tell myself that I deserve a break; however, this “break,” which starts...
