What It Feels Like To Act The Part

Filed under Sports, What It Feels Like

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 girlsâ€...

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...

When I think of my ideal self, I don’t have any weaknesses. I think that goes to say for everyone else, too. When I think of being weak, I think of being insecure. I think of being the kind of person that gets pushed around and walked all over. But most of all, I can’t help but imagine what my poten...

From the last first day of school to the final time one wears their school colors at graduation, senior year can be the best out of the “greatest years." Our minds are so focused on the goal of finishing we often ...

I recently went to New Orleans, Progreso, and Cozumel on a cruise during my Spring Break. This trip exposed me to many different meals and cooking styles. The main parts of most of my meals included seafood and/or an abundance of spices. I had a single meal that stands out to me in my memory: gumbo. ...

While brainstorming ideas for this magazine’s Tom Tom Tries, we decided we wanted to do something out of the norm. Instead of trying a sport we both knew we would fail at, we decided to step out of our comfort zone and try weird foods. Twisted Cuisine is a restaurant located in Kenosha, Wis. that coo...

I’ve gotten used to hearing the phrase “opposites attract,” but I never really understood it or believed it to be true until this year. Coming into freshman year, I had the most basic idea of high school stereotypes: the jocks, the nerds, the band kids, the burnouts and the popular crowd. But as...

Filed under Editorials, Tom Tom

When there are no ifs, ands or buts about it, there is no room to negotiate or discuss the issue. We think that our word is final; it isn’t open to question. However, issues rarely fall into this category and there is almost always room to discuss and/or argue a topic. But the problem is that people ...

A piece of toast has 70 calories. A kiwi has 40 calories. A cutie has 30 calories. A banana has 110 calories. An apple has 60 calories. These facts are seared in my brain, a grim reminder of my time. I have the amount of calories in so many foods memorized. In seventh grade health class, they taught...
