“We’re up here with make-up on our faces and our rehearsed attack lines, playing roles in this reality TV show. It’s one reason why we elected a reality TV star as our president.” Applause. “We need to be laser focused on solving the real challenges of today.” Wild applause. 10...

"Unseen" is a vignette that details the experience of a young man as he struggles to find himself in the throes of adolescence. The bell rings, signaling the end of class. The halls suddenly fill with the rush of moving bodies and the sound of jostling students. The door to the classroom swings open, a...

AirPods: Many of us have them, many of us (hate to admit that we) want them, yet nobody seems to be aware of the damage they entail. These sleek, wireless, white earbuds are the big go-to for teenagers today, mostly because they’re modern and allow us to listen to music on the go which, let’s admit ...

Meredith Prince

May 28, 2019

We’re already almost through May, and barely anyone in our community has talked about what should be this month’s most important focus, mental illness. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, but it's no surprise that the conversation about this month hasn’t started due to the stigma surrounding m...

I have to say, it really gets under my skin when people interrupt me in the middle of my sentence. I’m not talking about small commentary here and there to show interest in the topic - I’m talking about when someone is in the middle of a story and the other person blatantly cuts them off to tell...

What an exciting time in sports. We just witnessed the first ever Kentucky Derby where the first horse to cross the finish line was not crowned champion.

I’m going to be straightforward with you— living in Wayland can be a lot of pressure.

Prom is, in many ways, the biggest event of junior year. While I’m no longer a junior, I hear whispers about it in the hallway, the dreaded word coming up over and over: promposal. I hear it while I’m working in the art room or during orchestra. I scroll through my Facebook page to find that it...

Opinion: College Board – a very profitable not-for-profit

Alex Janoff

April 26, 2019

According to its website, the College Board is a “mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity." Unfortunately, the College Board’s claim that they are a not-for-profit organization is at the least misleading, and at the most, plain wrong. L...
