Wagging through the crisis

Leonie Humig, Senior Staff Writer

April 27, 2020

I am sick and tired of COVID-19 thinking it has the right to turn the entire world upside down. Quite frankly, I do not think I am delivering breaking news when I say that staying at home because of COVID-19 sucks. At this point, it’s a known fact. I think using Zoom to see your friends is annoying....

It takes a village

Sam Barney-Gibbs, Ombudsman

April 24, 2020

I am a senior; I’m upset that my graduation will not be the way I have been imagining it since I watched High School Musical for the first time. I am the son of a mom with preexisting conditions; she hasn’t stepped foot outdoors out of fear for over a month now. Most of all, though, I am an American...

Maintaining community in a time of social distancing

A mask landed in my garden the same day I found out about COVID-19. Like a light switch, our reality was flipped, the world has drastically changed in the last few months as we’ve known it. We can never prepare for something to spread so quickly, so violently and so discreetly. The theme of our...

Love in the time of COVID-19

How many of y’all have spent a gross amount of time taking absolutely useless Buzzfeed quizzes? My hand is definitely raised. I have found out that my Disney husband would be Naveen and I would be placed into Ravenclaw (I disagree with that last one).  But along the way, I found a quiz that wasn...

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it,” Ferris Bueller once said. I do not think I really got this quote until I started my senior year. I looked back on my high school career and realized that the four years had gone by really quickly. It...

A Timeless Start to the New ‘20s

A Timeless Start to the New ‘20s

Leila Kohn, Senior Staff Writer

April 2, 2020

2019 was a stellar year for movies and music. It’s no surprise, therefore, that 2020 has had some amazing award show fashion. The first look at the 21st century’s “roaring ‘20s” did not disappoint and, consequently, glitter and pizzaz (as in the real roaring ‘20s) was a mainstay. This...

Free psychotherapy for all: we gotta do it

Sam Barney-Gibbs, Ombudsman

April 2, 2020

We can continue preaching about innate issues within the public school system’s approach to mental health issues — toxic gender stereotypes keeping us in a chokehold or technology rotting our brains from the inside out. The list of problems appears infinite. We can continue to sit and complain....

A philosophical plea for sanity

Atmika Iyer, Editor-in-Chief

April 2, 2020

“What We Owe to Each Other” Moral philosopher T. M. Scanlon wrote that book outlining a branch of moral philosophy known as contractualism. The basis of that school of thought is that the morality of an action is based upon a form of contract. Contractualism itself branches off. One specific...

Stop Hoarding

Alex Goldbeck, Editor-in-Chief

April 2, 2020

You see, my mom and I have this routine. She goes shopping to name-brand stores like Gelson’s, Trader Joe’s and Ralph’s and then I fill in the holes by going to Target. Because Target is the place to be. I can shop for snacks and clothing all in one trip. That has always been our routine. We...
