COVID-19 Has Taken Away My Senior Year

It’s a sad time for all of us but even more of a sad time for us seniors.

COVID-19 Has Taken Away My Senior Year

With the national pandemic of the COVID-19, many schools are cancelling for a while. For many students they're happy about this (because who doesn't love not going to school). But for me, it's my senior year, I'm losing my last time at my high school. I'm not getting to experience school lunch shenanigans with all my friends anymore. I'm not getting to experience morning assembly with the student body anymore. I want to note though, I am in no way trying to come off as selfish because I do want the nation to heal and get over this virus!

I do wish there was some way I could still see all my good buddies and goof off like we used to! But I'm sure this COVID-19 hysteria will all leave just as fast as it came, if America takes time healing precautions. Despite the circumstances I'm trying my best to see the good in the situation no matter how dark it may seem. I'm so thankful for social media and facetime so I can stay in touch with all of my good friends! If I couldn't stay in touch with them through FaceTime or Snapchat I would probably go stir crazy.

Even though our senior sports seasons are cancelled we still are a team and are leaning on each other more than ever! To all the high school seniors who are upset and worried about not going back, we're in this together! Somehow you will get to experience those final games and your final prom!

Don't think you're the only one going through this because thousands of other high school seniors are going through it too! We all need to come together (social distancing of course) and work together as one! We need to take time to heal and grow stronger despite the circumstances!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.
