I was not ready to write this column. I’ve been throwing around ideas about what to write since freshman year (jumping the gun and assuming I would be a staff member). When I decided I wanted to graduate early at the beginning of this semester, I realized I couldn’t have made it through high schoo...

Life is full of bumps in the road. In kindergarten, I saw a ther- apist for my OCD, in 12th grade my parents divorced and the month before I committed to college I had to stressfully reconsider my second choice. Hardships suck, no doubt about it. But each bump taught me new lessons, and looking back,...

Ever since I showed up with my straight-across bangs, glasses and braces freshman year, it’s been painfully obvious I’m not the type to enjoy high school. Football games bore me, the pep rallies make me nauseous and the only time you’ll hear me shout “1-5” is if I’m being sarcastic. I’ve...

It’s true what they tell you: high school goes by way too fast. It’s been four years and it feels like just yesterday my mom dropped me off at Woodstock, well, my first day of school. I walked through a massive group of seniors dressed in their hippie attire yelling “GO 1-2!” and into a s...

It wasn’t supposed to happen to me. It was something that happened to the unlucky kids in the other class, or in movies like Cheaper by the Dozen. But two days before the start of  junior year it was happening to me as I packed up my car and drove to St. Louis — I was moving. Walking into scho...

I really, really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up to take Honors Chemistry before my sophomore year. Like all science classes I taken at that point, I expected it to be easy. While everyone else seemed to understand stoichiometry and or- ganic chemistry within a day of first...

Known as “The Maggies” within KHS, Maggie Cox and Maggie Dickherber met at age 6 and have been inseparable ever since. “We were at [our neighborhood pool] before the first practice of the year and I heard [Dickherber] say her name,” Cox said. “I thought, ‘I can’t be Maggie too.’ I...
