One of my favorite parts of the entire school day is the twenty minutes I spend after school in my car. Every day without fail I leave my seventh hour physics class, walk to my car, sit in the driver’s seat, crack the windows, open my jar of honey roasted peanuts, and watch the world go by. From my ...

My junior year I was sitting with one of my best friends at lunch, playing on my phone and reading a Cosmopolitan article about yet another wild Kardashian antic, when it suddenly struck me how much America has changed from the time it was founded to today. Today all we hear about in the news are corr...

I couldn't tell you the exact moment I started liking country music. If you had asked me a year ago, I would have told you, “I'll listen to anything but country music or rap;” I firmly believed that country music was annoying and cliché and trashy. And I held my ground behind this viewpoint for years...

Growing up, people all around me have struggled. I personally have struggled. But, my problems are very different from others. Many high schoolers, middle schoolers, and maybe even elementary schoolers have mental health illnesses. Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, there are many different kinds....

You don’t see it on the surface; in the recesses of your mind, it lurks. It wears you down slowly, distances you from the world. It preys on your pain, loneliness and fear. It may even make you regret the breaths you take and the life you have. No, I’m not describing the boogeyman. I’m describing mental ...

I wake up. Not in tears over the excruciating school day that lies ahead, not chipper and making my green smoothie ready to #TackleThisTuesday, not happy to see my friends; I just wake up.

My thoughts spiral. It's like I'm drowning but the air is still in my lungs. Shaking, sweating, hyperventilating, nauseous - “You're overreacting,” I tell myself. “It's not even that bad. Everyone does this.” I start shaking, bouncing my leg as quickly as my thoughts as they move faster and ...
