This past Sunday marked my 17th year on this planet.

For the past couple weeks or so, my family’s been dealing with a pretty bad bout of sickness. It started with my brother, who came home with a burning fever, a hacking cough and a runny nose.

The boy sat in the corner of the library, his gaze fixed on the computer screen in front of him. Various books, binders and papers littered the table. From time to time he would pick one up, scan through its contents, then toss it back haphazardly onto the desk. The boy closed his computer, leaned bac...

There are several advantages of having a parent in the school. One of them is being able to get permission slips signed on the day of an event. I had just found out I was able to go to the World Culture Club’s event after my mom, Ms. Marton, signed my permission slip. On the trip, we were going to g...

Differences between German and American high schools Since I started my exchange year in the USA, the question I have been asked most is what the differences between German and American schools are.
