4 Questions I Had While Watching 'Degrassi: The Next Generation'

If you are a fan of the old Degrassi like me, when Jimmy was in a wheelchair and Emma was still a nerd, here are a few questions that you had while watching “Degrassi: The Next Generation."

1. What ever happened to Terri MacGregor?

Terri was a student at Degrassi, she was a plus size model, on the lacrosse team, and had body image issues. Throughout the seasons, she started dating a new student named Rick Murray. After the relationship with her boyfriend Rick became serious, it became abusive as well. Terri was eventually sent to the hospital due to serious injuries. The episodes that came after this event seemed to have forgotten about Terri completely. It had been rumored online, that after Terri was released from the hospital and then her mom made her transfer schools.

2. Why didn’t Jimmy Brooks ever return from Europe?

After Rick Murray was bullied, he went on a shooting spree and Jimmy Brooks was caught in the line of fire. This event caused Jimmy, the basketball star, to be wheelchair bound. He continually did therapy to bring back the feeling in his legs and to improve his “walking.” When this failed, him and a friend he met at therapy, heard about the testing of stem cells on humans in Europe. They had heard that these stem cells could bring back the feeling in their legs, so they left for Europe and never returned. Some conclusions from this were that, Jimmy was written out of the show because of his thriving rap career in real life.

3. Who was Heather Sinclair?

On almost every episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation, the character “Heather Sinclair” was brought up in conversation. But who was this mysterious, popular girl? All the characters seemed to have known her as the popular girl and the one not to mess with, but she was never actually seen in the show. No one ever played this character on the show; she was sort of like an imaginary character.

4. What ever happened to Spinner Mason’s little sister?

In the beginning of the first couple of season, Spinner Mason had a younger adopted sister named, Kendra Mason. She dated another character Toby and was on the lacrosse team. Kendra was not one of the major characters, which made it easier for viewers to forget about her. She was only seen in a few episodes throughout the shows career, but never had any major parts.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
