Exams, essays and extracurriculars; at this point in the school year, many students begin to feel swamped with work. About halfway through a semester always seems to be when time flies but weeks drone on. Many of our Sequoits are involved in rigorous classes and extracurriculars like sports and clubs - sometim...

October is college application month, when everyone is trying to squeeze all the college preparation into 30 days. Going into senior year, I had barely thought about college seriously. Unless I was just blind the past 3 years of high school, nothing college related was really brought to my attention....

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...

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 ...

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.
