As we move through October, we are reminded of all that comes with this time of year: pumpkin spice, scary movies and changing leaves to name a few. However, if you are a frequenter of the art hallways like myself, you know that October brings one of the year's greatest challenges: Inktober. For the u...

On July 27, Indiana issued the mask mandate. As a worker at Freddy’s Frozen Custard on 146th Street, my coworkers and I are required to enforce the mask mandate.

As a student who is involved in many things, SRT is a really important time for me to finish work and meet with teachers.

On the very first day of school, I got here early to take my sister to marching band practice, and as I sat in the back of the auditorium I kept getting notifications on my phone that said, “the identity of google.com could not be verified.” Which was a little bit weird but I just figured the wi...

In just a few months, I’ll officially be a high school senior. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs over these past few years, but if there’s one thing I wish I did more throughout high school, it would have to be journaling. When I say journaling, however, I don’t necessarily mean bullet...
