Why I Am Excited For My Senior Year
Jonathan Daniels

They say all good things come to a end, high school is no different. Although I don't consider high school the best four years of my life (and don't want them to be). I am sad that I will be leaving my childhood behind and also happy for the new world that is ahead of me. I'm guessing that senior year is going to be a great, memorable change between these two phases of my life. I hope it is nothing short of the best year in my life so far.

1. Early Dismissal

Seniors at my school get the benefit of leaving school early as 12:30. This opens several opportunities for jobs and volunteer work for me. Maybe even a nap break.

2. Powder-puff Game

Every year, upperclassman at my school come together to raise money for breast cancer in October through a powder-puff game. None of us really know how to play football or what we are doing, but it is a great way to get together, have fun, and raise money for a good cause.

3. Applying to college

For me, the biggest thing about my senior year is going to be applying to colleges. That is when it will really set in that high school is almost over. I finally get to decide what I am doing with my life and where I will be devoting the next four years of my life to. There is underlying rewards in that.

4. Senior Brunch

Right before graduation, my school organizes a brunch for all the seniors. I heard the food isn't super good, but the place has great picture spots.

5. School dances

School dances will probably be my favorite memory from high school. Not only is it an event where the whole school can have fun together, but it is so fun to put on a gown and get your hair and makeup done.

6. Senior Road Trip

Every year, numerous parents set up the school in different themes that represent various places in the world. But that is all I really know about it. Seniors have to keep what happens at the event a secret for the future grades. I'm exited to experience it.

7. Getting accepted into college/ Committing

Getting accepted into my dream college will be one of the happiest days of my high school experience. There will be a tangible thing that represents all my hard work throughout the past decade. Also I'll finally get a glimpse into the next phase of my life.

8. Senior night for Lacrosse

I play lacrosse at my school, and although I don't consider myself the most valuable player, I am exited to be celebrated with my other teammates on senior night. It will be sad to step on the field for the last time though.

9 Graduation

The past four years will all be to get my diploma and throw my cap in the air. Just like that, it will all be over. Goodbye high school! As always, Go Go Mustangs!

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
