Heartfelt help hard to come by

Because of the earthquake in Haiti, people around the world have "done their part" to help. But I can't help but wonder, are their hearts in it? Sure, it's awesome if you can donate $10 dollars via text message, but would you be willing to actually go and help the Haitian people? Truthfully, I think th...

Senioritis poisons upperclassmen

I consider myself to be a relatively determined person. I've worked hard for three-and-a-half years to get good grades in high school. However, senioritis is a disease that affects even the most dedicated student. It manifests itself through any degree of a lack of motivation. While I didn't assume th...

It feels good to be accepted. Given my substantial grades and considerable amount of extracurricular activities, I wasn't shocked to get the acceptance letters. However, it still gave me a sort of warm and fuzzy feeling to see what I have been working toward for the last four years become manifeste...

Children’s shows send message to young viewers

With the rise in use of television, video games and most of all computers, children are often the target of advertising for unhealthy "junk food." Because they are infinitely more susceptible to the messages that any other age group, this has easily assisted the ever-growing child obesity rate. Many so...

As much as I would love to focus on college, high school keeps getting in my way. For every hour I need to spend applying to colleges and applying for scholarships, I have about three hours of homework for the place it seems I may never escape from. Don't get me wrong; I am actually trying to enjoy ...

Sugar: friend or foe?

With all the health food hype, many candies like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Twizzlers are being put to shame by dieticians. Because fats have the smallest recommended daily allowance, eating even one Reese's Peanut Butter Cup can mess up even the most dedicated dieter. With this in mind, I set to...

Grilled or fried?

Fried chicken. Just the thought of it makes the hungry drool... and dietitians gag. Why is that? Are they over reacting, or is it as bad for you as they think it is? It doesn't seem bad. I mean, chicken is a lean meat, with a generally low fat content. It can't be too horrible, right? I decided to...

The real deal: what admissions counselors won’t tell you

I found out that the best way to visit a college is through the back door. Forget the formalities and prepared presentation of the school; as much as the effort is appreciated, this facade does not expose true college life. Given, I will not understand college to its full extent until I go, but I wou...

A piece of the pizza pie

It's simple to just order a pizza. We don't have time for much of anything else because someone’s working, or someone has plans, or we need to get this done, or that. Most pizza places will even bring the pizza to your house, so you don't have to get behind on your homework, or your laundry, or st...

The nuisance of college advertising

"I don't want to go to Southern Nazarene University!" I lamented as I shoved yet another college brochure into the trash can with more force than necessary. Logging onto my family PC, I saw with dismay that I hadn’t checked my email since Monday, and it was now Friday. I did a quick mental calculation to...

Counting fast food calories

Fast food seems to be a staple of the average American’s diet. Always rushing, always busy, never time to go home and sit down for a nice, home cooked meal. But have you ever stopped to think which of these places are the best for you? For example, I for one assumed Arby’s was pretty healthy. ...
