Students have a routine everyday consistently getting up in the morning, going to school and sitting in a desk for seven hours. When you continuously do that for four years, it gets old. As I walk into her classroom though, I don’t get the standard “here is a worksheet, do it, turn it in.” She...

It is hard knowing that my dad only gets to come home every other weekend because the Army transferred him to Fort Knox, Kent., also known as the state with the gold. He never says how hard it is to leave his family to go live by himself in a very small area, but then again, he has been moving to var...

Hey there! I’m Savannah McEachern and a senior here at FHC. I am pretty excited to be starting off my senior year. I have been waiting for it since middle school. Just knowing that I finally get all of the senior perks makes me ecstatic! The underclassmen may not think it is fair, but once you ge...

Sitting in our room or out with friends. It did not matter where we were but our phones sooner or later were blown up with updates about Osama bin Laden. Most had the feeling of excitement. The adrenaline pumping through our blood. He was dead and United States finally had justice for one of the most...

Getting to the end of my junior year, I can not stop thinking about all of the college opportunities ahead of me. It is nearly a scary thought, but it runs through my mind most of the day. Choosing a college is very important. It will be where you create your career. What excites you? What grabs you...

Being a teenager is hard enough. All you would like to do is get through life as easily as possible, but everyone knows that is not the way things go. Taking the easy way out of things is never the answer. What can get us through the day are the friends right beside you. You know that once you have a ...

Driving under the influence is the act of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol. The problem is that most people who do not take drunk driving seriously, do not know the risk of drinking and driving. They are not only putting others at risk, but themselves at risk as well. Both state and national po...

This week, you could say, has been emotional. A lot of issues, and I am not sure how I am even functioning right now. It has all been a huge roller coaster. I have had to make decisions that I do not want to make, keep a smile on my face that is completely fake and stay awake during class even though I ...

It is nearly here. It is our third break off from school. The time when the days become warmer and the nights become longer. It is spring break. In my opinion, it is the best break because after the long and cold winter days, summer is finally approaching. The sun will be out, kids will be playing in...

So far away

I have not decided what is worse; moving away from everyone and everything that you have known your entire life, or watching the people you love move away from you. Both are not easy - ever. But there are ways to keep a smile on your face. When someone like that moves away from you, think of the po...

Expanding from my depression blog, being a teenager can be a whirlwind adventure. You may even think about your life being on a roller coaster. You have ups and downs going at a speed that you just can not keep up with. You can even hear people telling you that you lead your life. From my experience th...

Depression hurts everyone. Not only you, but everyone else around you. Most of the time, it may even seem like it’s consuming your life, and the more you think about it the more depressed you can feel. It is not a good feeling and it is not fun at all, but it can be controlled. Depression can affec...
