Year Ends but Work Doesn’t

Year Ends but Work Doesn’t

Why do teachers still assign us work after we have taken AP tests and finals? At this point in the school year, everyone is tired and burnt out, including both students and teachers. We think we can take a sigh of relief once AP tests and finals are over, but before we can even finish our exhale, teachers...

Balance Is Nonexistent

Balance Is Nonexistent

There is no such thing as a balanced life. If there is, then it is inefficient and unproductive; the best way to live is by getting your priorities straight. While you are at work, focus on the most important things that you have to get done and while you are at home, focus on spending time with yourself...

Get Off Your Phone

Get Off Your Phone

In today’s world, it seems like everyone thinks they are above others. I cannot go anywhere in public without hearing someone blab away at their phones as if they are not in the room with ten other people. These people then have the audacity to look at others as if everyone else should be quiet because...

Sometimes people need help, and I get that. Not everyone can do everything independently, and that is perfectly understandable. But what is not reasonable is when people demand help because they decide they don’t feel like doing their work on their own. These people are capable, but make the decision...

Dump Trump

Yesterday, February 22, President Trump withdrew the rule for a transgender person to use the bathroom of their choice. Trump is dehumanizing transgender people by not accepting them. The real question is, why did Trump do this? Trump is in a huge white house and transgender people have not done anything...

The Power of Appearance

Filed under 100 Word Rants

Our appearance, from the way we dress, to the way speak, to the way we act, to the way we represent ourselves, all have a say towards where we are headed in life. For one, it determines the types of people we attract in our lives. Think about the top five people you surround yourself with. Now ruminate ov...

Insecure Men

Filed under 100 Word Rants

Being sensitive is in no way a bad thing. Everyone has those little quirks that annoy them. But, there is a huge difference between being sensitive, and being unable to hear negativity regarding yourself without feeling attacked. This is most likely due to a problem rooting back to your abhorrent masculinity...

Get Over Yourself

Filed under 100 Word Rants

Alright, you’re smart. You can solve for “x” and find the escape velocity of a bullet. You know the right answers when others don’t. But, don’t brag about it. Don’t go on about the work being too easy for you. Don’t smirk at the sound of a wrong answer. Not only does feeding off of other’s...

Arranged Friends

Not everyone has the luxury of going out with their friends. My parents look at kids my age hanging out with friends. I look with envy. Why aren’t they home helping their parents? Those same kids do their parts at home and have more responsibilities than other kids my age. They go out instead of helping...

Why don’t you just go out? Why are you always home? I can’t go out. I am 17 and just started going out with my friends, even ones I’ve known since elementary school! I should’ve known when I was given a bike but was never taught to ride it, to go on my own. They don’t think I can make it on...

Religion Ban

I never understood why countries banned an entire religion. Even though America did not ban Jews in 1939, America sent them away and they all died. Now America may be doing it again with banning seven majority muslim countries. We need to remember that this country consists of many immigrants whom we...

The Issue Revolving Censorship

Samantha Datnoff, News Editor

Filed under 100 Word Rants

As I sit down to write my 100 word rant, I’m immediately surged with a million creative ideas at once… but none of which I can take advantage of for my assignment. In moments like these, I realize how much my creativity is suppressed due to censorship. While freedom of the press is a constitutional...
