I ate the first one and when I went to have another I bit into it and it tasted like mint. It was so gross I spit it out right after, but my sister was laughing really hard so I knew it wa...

"Senior schedule has definitely been one of the highlights of my senior year. I recommend everyone who is in a lower grade (to) try your best to get into the TCP Program.

Senior Dryden Shroeder “I think one of the best things I have ever done was going to my first baseball game to watch the Cubs play on Wrigley Field. My dad took me while we were on a trip to Chicago to visit my family. I remember sitting in the stands and imagined myself on that field as a little ...

“I’ve been playing football for over four years. It’s a grind for sure, but keeping yourself humble and working every day with the rest of your teammates is really something that I am proud of and the rest of the team is proud of.

Junior Alexis Custer-Topai “I usually start wearing Halloween socks in July, just to make sure I’m in the spirit and hype myself up. I really like fall since Halloween is my favorite holiday and that’s what I normally associate it with. I also think of toilet papering people’s houses since it...

“I used to be really involved in DECA, I still I am, but I used to be in love with DECA, DECA was like my life and everything I did and I was pretty good at it but sometimes you put in a lot of work for something and you don’t get that recognition that you want, it really makes you question how ...

“I realized that dreams do come true, I don’t know, because this whole being a senior thing, and I’m headed off to college in a few months and I’ve been waiting for all my college acceptances and rejections and everything, and after I got accepted by my top school, I was like ‘Oh! Okay, so d...

And sometimes, if I see a really out-there piece at Goodwill or something, I’ll pair that with a regular pair of jeans if it’s for a shoot. But I’ll never do that for regular purposes.

"Just over the summer, I started looking at fashion related sites. I did a bit more research and I realized that I didn’t dress that well.
