What It Feels Like To Learn How To Cope

What It Feels Like To Learn How To Cope

Filed under Lifestyles, Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

Grief: deep sorrow, especially caused by someone's death. Some may say it comes in waves, but that would suggest a seemingly predictable pattern. There was no pattern in the grief of my aunt’s death. It was about as predictable as a blindfolded pitcher. I had thought that grief would be similar to hav...

Ten hours until the game… nine hours until the game… I’ve loved football since around eighth grade. As soon as I started watching it on TV, my dad encouraged me to play. I always used to go out and practice with my friends, which was what really started to make me love it. Even though I lov...

What It Feels Like To Be In Love

Love is hard to describe. I never dated in high school. I only ever dated when I got to college, and even then it was still meaningless to me. Sure, I would like a girl and enjoy her company, but I had never loved a girl I’d dated. I’d never experienced anything beyond the love you feel for ...

The Performing Arts // Paige Hope Ever since I was little, I’ve loved entertaining people. I always tried to make my older sisters laugh, whether that be with impressions, jokes or stories. My best friend and I wrote songs, skits and puppet shows, performing them for our neighbors. I always jumped...

As the school year comes to a close, many seniors are trying to figure out if they have achieved the honor of receiving cum laude. Cum laude is a Latin term that means, “with honor.” Usually, it refers to college students who graduate with high academic achievements; however, a variation was esta...

EDITOR’S NOTE: Look Before You Leap

Filed under Editor's Note, Tom Tom

The title of Editor-in-Chief is one that holds a lot of opportunities for success, but equally as many opportunities for failure. While it may seem as if being the boss only earns you privileges, more often than not, it only earns us criticism. When you’re expected to be the best of the best, failure...

Every book is different. The traditional coloring book contains a story line and the pages are meant to stay in order. Some books have perforated edges so they can be removed as individual pages.

Softball has been in my family for many generations, so I was bound to be involved in it one way or another. My dad coached college softball, my mom was an assistant coach in college, my sister played travel and high school ball and my uncle is even in the Illinois Hall of Fame for coaching with over 500...

Rachel Beckman I have never played soccer before, besides the casual passing along the shoreline at the beach and family party backyard games. When I was asked to participate in the Tom Tom Tries event, I was pretty laid back in response, saying that I would love to be a part of the Varsity girls...

John Petty Being an Iron Man is more than just a title. Playing multiple sports holds meaning to this Sequoit and his family. Playing three sports to me is less about the sports by themselves, but more so what they represent. Ever since I was little, my dad had me playing and trying new things all...
