Ending my Days as a Hallo-Weenie

Ending my Days as a Hallo-Weenie

An important thing to understand about me is, despite my rough and tumble exterior, I am deeply terrified of everything from isolation to the aptly named "jump scares." Thus, when I found myself in a haunted house an hour away from civilization, I was understandably anxious. My whole ridiculous fear ...

Take a look at any one day’s headlines from the past year alone- the record says it all. With two dynamic partisan candidates garnering constant - and often negative - attention, this election cycle has left many feeling at best torn and at worst repulsed by voting.

Last Wednesday, I attended Skutt Catholic's daily morning mass for the first time this school year. The grand total of attendees racked up to four: Zav, two adults I didn't know, and me. In a school of around 720 students, I was the only one there. It's not like I was surprised by this. I went...

Every few weeks, all 700+ Skutt Catholic students turn to each other in the middle of classes, all saying the same thing: “My background changed again! Now it looks like a wet Granny Smith apple. Why?!” This phenomenon frustrates students, simply because they have spent time personalizing their iPad...

The date was October 2, 2016 when I found myself caught in a flurry of wedding commotion. Bridesmaids rushed to find their bouquets while guests began making their way to their carefully placed seats. I opened the dressing room door to find my aunt draped in white, topped off with a nine foot cathedra...

Most of the cross country team has worked hard all summer to get their place on varsity or JV, only to be divided into the important and the unimportant. The Skutt Catholic Cross Country team has been introduced to a new ranking system that puts us into teams that train together. It also makes some...

In Las Vegas, a home field advantage is worth three points on paper. This means if two teams are equal, then the home team is given a three point advantage in the spread. This, of course, doesn’t mean anything when the teams meet on the field. However, a home field advantage, given that it is taken...

Although a mass terrorist attack is breaking news, for some reason I'm sitting here watching coverage on why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got divorced. Now, there have been numerous counts of media conspiracy theories formulated. I'm not going to sit here and explain why the news talking about the Zika...

I never thought there would be a time that I'd have to grow up. Sure, I played mom as a little(er) girl, and to this day daydream about my life as a theatre director, or professional journalist. But I never really grasped the fact that this chapter of my life could draw to a close. And I still...

As you probably heard, both college and NFL football is back. It's been a long 235 day wait for college football fans and a 215 day wait for NFL fans. These fans, including myself, couldn't be more excited for the season. Since the school year kicked back into gear, I've had nothing to motivate me...

“Here comes dat boi” is a phrase that you might have chuckled at a couple months ago, but now even the slightest mention of it makes you cringe. This is all thanks to something I like to call the “mainstream media.” Now, some may not be as familiar with these internet trends as others. A “meme” is a word used to describe a picture or trend that is often...

Last Tuesday morning, I attended a funeral for Marcia Regan, my eighth grade teacher who had just died of ovarian cancer. As I shuffled into the crowded church, I noticed that the mourners were predominantly wearing just two colors - black, the traditional color of grief, and pink, to honor the favorite...
