  The past four years have passed by like minutes. I can honestly say from start to finish, I’ve changed a significant amount. First off, I used to be blonde and wear pink…yeah I’d say I’ve improved quite a bit, but I guess that’s what high school is, where you find who you really are....

By dressing up for the ABC countdown, I have been experiencing a mix of emotions from pure excitement to fear. The only way I can describe the past four years as is a journey. High school was a fun, challenging journey. Although I attended Grayslake North for two years, I feel as though my time here ha...

There is so much I am thankful for as this chapter of my life comes to a close. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made, the things I’ve learned, and the opportunities I’ve had. I feel just as any other senior feels. I can’t wait to leave these yellow brick walls behind and move on to bigger a...

When the former district musical becomes North’s fall musical next year, the theatre department will face many challenges. While it is true that students will have more opportunities because there will be less competition, putting on a full musical in the Black Box theatre could be a hurdle. In...

With the recent injuries plaguing the Chicago Bulls team and Derrick Rose, it’s no surprise to see him, once again, injure his leg and very well hurt another possible championship year for the team. The day following a prior game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Derrick Rose reported soreness in his leg,...

March is an exciting time, with St. Patrick's Day, Shamrock Shakes, and maybe, possibly spring. It really can't come soon enough. There is a lot of things to look forward to in the next month. But what is on most girls’ minds this month? Prom. More than dresses, shoes, and tickets though, the promposal...

Lately, I’ve been interested in a new hobby that has prompted some serious thinking about not only my health, but the healths of other teenagers. I’ve been taking zero hour for about two years now, and I believe that is what truly catalyzed this new obsession of healthy living and taking care...

Back in the day, curvy women were considered beautiful. In fact, having curves and a little extra meat on your bones was a good thing; it was a symbol of wealth to the public because it meant you had more than enough food. Then, of course, there was the Marilyn Monroe era where women were influenced...

You know, a month ago, I was seriously kidding myself when I said that second semester of my senior year would be easier. I clearly remember studying for finals one night, almost at my breaking point mind you, and reassuring myself that second semester would be relaxing, easy and all about being proud...

It is seemingly impossible to turn on a news channel and watch it without being depressed or nervous. The world news focuses on terrorist attacks, and the local Chicago news seems to report each and every shooting in a gang-ridden neighborhood. While all of this is important, the news channels of today...

I recently watched a video about forming new habits called “Try something new for 30 days”. Initially, I thought, wow, 30 days? That’s so easy. I decided that I wanted to create new habits in January, a time when many people create their new year’s resolutions that will (hopefully) be successful....

There was something lurking on the shelves of my neighborhood Jewel-Osco during early January that caused a series of chills to run along my spine. I cringed as I made my way into the aisle, all blooming with the same color and shape: red hearts. The life-size grinning bear seemed to cast a shadow over...
