Campus Point: Senioritis Revisited

April 11, 2014 Senioritis sen·ior·i·tis 1. A supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance. A disease has wracked my body and mind.  I fear I have not much time before I am consumed by Senioritis. It has been nary a month since the first symptoms arrived, yet t... Read more »

Birthdays at School

April 4, 2014 There are always girls walking through the hallways with their giant Hello Kitty balloons and gift bags, probably filled with things that their close friends knew they would enjoy, and perhaps a large tupperware container of cookies or cupcakes. And if a teacher finds out, there's bound to be some off-tune, unsynchronized rendition of Happy ... Read more »

March 11, 2014 Does the thought having someone accidentally brush their fingers across that piece of gum you left under the desk provide you with immense satisfaction? Or have we become so sedentary as a society that it's simply three feet too far from the trash can? Regardless, "tagging" the school with gum doesn't make you "hardcore." Leaving gum in such obnoxious places ... Read more »

February 3, 2014 Hey you, yeah you. You know who I'm talking to.   Stop sniffling right now and pick up a Kleenex. Everyone in the room can hear the snorting of slippery snot. This  ebb and flow of mucus is hurting my concentration. Should I really have to listen to this every 5 seconds during a 200 point exam? That was a rhetorical question, by the way, and th... Read more »

January 23, 2014   630 days. 42 different classes. 7 previous semesters. After this much time, it seems like the simple act of finding classes would become almost second nature. Still I was surprised to see so many Seniors wandering aimlessly around school trying to figure out their new schedule. A simple activity accomplished by Freshmen, Sophomores, and Jun... Read more »

January 14, 2014 Nobody's favorite pop star Justin Bieber received an un-eggs-pected surprise Tuesday morning when a dozen hard-boiled deputies arrived at his door with a search warrant. Bieber has been accused of pelting his neighbor's home with eggs, an incident resulting in approximately $20,000 in damage. A houseguest of Bieber's was arrested for possessing wh... Read more »

January 10, 2014 Dear Sprinters, I understand that lunch is the best part of the school day but come on is frantically scrambling out of your seat and running out of the door in a herd really necessary? When you're jumping out of your seat the second you hear the bell, you're forgetting about the people who live on the shorter side of life and aren't in a race ... Read more »

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. You are more likely to be killed by lightning, to become president, to date a supermodel, or to contract the human version of mad cow disease than to hold that winning ticket. Yet with that astronomical sum of money hang... Read more »

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 ... Read more »

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. It is also irritating when the bus is completely full and you have to sit next to... Read more »

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... Read more »

November 20, 2013 Thanksgiving is the next upcoming holiday, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the department stores. Michael's is already decked out in Christmas decorations, and Home Depot has begun selling their animatronic reindeer and inflatable Christmas Yodas (which exist apparently, go look it up). It seems that immediately after the Halloween regalia ... Read more »
