Never would I have guessed that joining Journalism my freshman year would be one of the most shaping moments of my high school career. My neighbor, Emily Jo Pahl, had suggested that I join the class, as she was Executive Editor and I was just an eighth grader who enjoyed writing. Now, four years later,...

As I write my last article for the school newspaper the period it is due, I finally think I figured out what got me through high school: procrastination, waiting until the latest I possibly could to finish a project, even a senior goodbye. If I was successful in turning in my assignment, I did not wait...

Throughout my years at North, I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve played on varsity sports, won Mr. GNHS, started my own t-shirt business, started an astronomy club, and much more. I have definitely left a mark in the school’s so to say “record books,” but I don’t just want to be another statistic...

As I come to my last article I will ever write for Grayslake North, I realize a couple of things. One: journalism takes a lot of effort and dedication. Two: it’s not always about whose article is the best and whose isn’t, it’s about how well you feel you did on the article. Three: the people that...

In the past couple of columns, I found that I was critiquing quite a few new initiatives taken by the school. For this reason, I felt it necessary to take a step back and relax, since overall, the school has been doing a pretty good job (as demonstrated by the Niche ratings and Dr. Roscoe’s award)....

Recently, many of North’s student athletes have committed to colleges for their athletic talents within sports ranging from all seasons. While this process may be simple for some, it is difficult for others in the aspect that they must decide what college experience they are chasing. I’ve played...

Science says that your taste buds change every five to seven years. At age seven, I went through a miraculous conversion where I began enjoying the taste of parmesan cheese, and by 13, I couldn’t stand it. But one thing that has stuck with me through most of my life was my hatred of peanut butter....

Superfanning is an experience full of memories and nightmares; it’s one interesting ride to say the least. Superfans show up at every game to support the team. Whether there’s sun, sleet, or the game’s an hour away, the superfans will be there. Now, Grayslake North’s superfans have become rather...

I’m going to admit: I was a little disappointed when I came home and opened the mail a few weeks ago. I knew my report card had arrived in the mail. However, this time, I noticed something was missing in the lower right corner of the page; I did not see my class rank on the sheet. I then remembered...

I have always been a toffee person. Crispy or melt-in-your-mouth, toffee has always been my sweet of choice. So you can imagine my horror when I discovered that Panera Bread had discontinued their toffee nut cookies. For some reason, toffee had seemed impossible to make and completely out of the question...
