Almost any cookie recipe you look at, the first step is always the same: cream together butter and sugar. At first it seems pretty simple, just mix the butter and sugar together until the mixture looks good enough, but leave it too long and the butter dissolves into a sticky mess making your cookies...

In all honesty, it is an understatement to say that it’s insane to me that my journey is coming to an end. I will no longer be a high school student. I will no longer wake up every morning and walk through the doors of Grayslake North High School. Most importantly, I will no longer have the privil...

  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.

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...
