13 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Watch Netflix’s New Show

Alaina Anderson, Staff Reporter

Filed under *Showcase, Opinion

After staring aimlessly at my bedroom ceiling unable to fall asleep, I decided to occupy myself with a wander through Netflix. I had heard everyone was raving about their new original series 13 Reasons Why, so I figured I would watch one episode because, let’s be honest, I had nothing better to do....

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...

Hot dogs are a beloved American classic with a new perspective: sandwich. The debate over whether a hot dog is a sandwich or not has become a highly controversial topic at Skutt Catholic. Despite various arguments, I believe hot dogs are just as much a sandwich as a Peanut Butter and Jelly. A hot...

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...

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...

All throughout our schooling careers, we are drilled with the idea that doing our best in school should be our most important priority, so it would seem counterintuitive to say that putting all your effort into school would not get you very far in life. Given that I am an 18-year-old high school student...

Once a year in the spring a large quantity of the population gathers around and fills out a piece of paper hoping things finally go their way. No, this isn't tax day, this is March Madness. With the sheer fact that this event can, in this instance, be almost misidentified as tax day helps to prove an ev...

After another call ending with a voicemail greeting, I made up my mind. It was Thursday night, and everyone was at work, play practice, or studying. So I put on my favorite outfit, grabbed my keys, and headed to the movie theater; something surprisingly few high schoolers can say they've experienced...

It would seem odd for someone who lives in a state home to the Great Plains to have such a passion for an activity that involves a very steep and long incline, but I have loved skiing my entire life. I have been skiing for 14 years (ever since I was four), and it is an experience that I would highly...

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,...

Try to imagine something the size of a peanut with the power to swallow our entire planet. Something that can be the hottest object one moment and then the coldest in another. These are just a few of the mysterious properties of black holes that I learned at the exhibit “Black Holes: Space Warps...

The moments spent lacing up the fraying laces of my year-and-a-half old basketball shoes, putting on my number twelve jersey, and trying to ignore the nerve racking pre-game butterflies have now forever passed from my life. Bus rides with the music blasting and pre-game warm ups are quickly evolving f...
