Filed under *Showcase, Column

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...

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...

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...

Last Saturday at 10:30 PM, I was watching my long dress flare out as I spun to an irresistibly upbeat song. Last Saturday at 11:30 PM, I was unraveling the difference between enthalpy and entropy. The notoriously difficult AP tests, which cover material from the whole year and require several...

One Question Becomes Difficult to Ask

It's that time of year again. A time where people create puns to ask someone to prom. Each “promposal” is documented and out on twitter or facebook. Why can't this just be a simple question anymore? Promposals have become too ceremonial and intimidating. With social media becoming a dominant method...

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...

At age 18, you're old enough to fight, and possibly even die, defending your country. But according to Nebraska State Law, you're too young to buy a lottery ticket. You're also too young to enter into a legal contract or change your name without your parents' permission. In 47 states, the legal a...

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'...
