December 17, 2013 The California Mega Millions: tickets are one dollar, the jackpot is 637 million. The chances of winning are 259,000,000 to 1.

Yet with that astronomical sum of money hang...

December 17, 2013 Why can't I keep my eyes open in class? I was already late for zero period. It really is the hardest thing to leave the warm comfort of my sheets in the cold, cruel morning. In fact, it's not even morning. It's morning when the sun comes up. The sun is most certainly not up at 5:00 in the morning.I want to be able to pay attention and do well ...

December 6, 2013 Your backpack doesn't need a seat. The thing that is irritating about riding the bus is when it is completely full of people,to the point where they are standing and falling all over each other, yet some riders are using an open seat for their belongings.

December 3, 2013 I don't know where you've been, but I know what you were doing. Hickeys don't lie. We've all seen them before--those big purple marks on people's necks that make them look like they've been hit by a Katniss Everdeen plunger-tipped arrow. The excuses the marked ones give range from the plausible-curling iron burn for girls, paintball wound for b...
