EDITOR’S NOTE: If Only You Knew

Atticus Finch once said, “you never really understand a person until you consider things from his perspective… until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” Every day we go to school with the same people. Some of them we’ve been going to school with since kindergarten, and others ...

What It Feels Like To Get Your Period

Aunt Flo visited, but she actually stayed more than I wanted her to—three months to be exact. Other girls’ aunts normally come and visit for a week or so, but my aunt was different. She would stay and I would be miserable. She was good at “magic”; I guess you would call it that: making blood ...

When I was ten or so, I was walking out of a department store, and in my head I swore. And in my head I thought, Oh no, I can’t do that because God will be angry. But then in my head, I was also like, Wait, that’s dumb. Because if there’s an invisible being that’s judging me for what my brain...

I don’t really know the order that things happened, the whole situation was a blur. I had just come home from practice one night and I had a spelling bee the next day, which I had not studied for at all. My mom told me that she smelled something weird, but my dad said it was nothing. He had just tur...

There’s no formula for how to be principal. I mean sure there are plenty of books, but ultimately you have to do it in a way that comes naturally to you. I’m the type of person who doesn’t know how to do it any other way than I’ve been doing it. The responsibility piece for me is really, reall...

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

It hasn’t always been this way. I mean it has, but not like this, not always. Sometimes it’s like walking around in a hundred pound suit all day, it’s like a constant weight that you have to overcome in order to move forward, in order to function. Other times, it’s seeing things far differently than ...

On June 16, 1978, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John opened the world up to their heartthrob love affair, but not everyone fell in love with this classic production as time went on. Some of ACHS’s students had concerns about the foul humor, emphasis on promiscuous morals, and some of the plot. ...

A forgotten animated classic of the early 2000s, “The Secret of Kells,” is truly an animated masterpiece. Set in an early medieval outpost about to be invaded by Vikings, this film has viewers on the edge of their seats the entire time. The film follows Evan McGuire as Brendan, a young boy livi...
