March eleventh was the last day I felt “normal.” My long-awaited trip to Disney World for band was canceled along with a multitude of school-related activities, trips, and sports. Everyone was off. I remember tapping through what felt like hundreds of private Snapchat stories of my friends crying and feeling the same disheartening feelings that I felt. I spent the whole Wednesday night tex...

All hope that we were still holding out to see our favorite teachers and best friends once more is officially gone. Nothing will ever be the same. The next time I go to school, I will be a junior.

From experiencing my first high school dance to being ele...

I didn’t know what to expect. Was the work going to be more difficult? Is it going to be easier or harder with many new kids? Will I like the teachers and staff? All those questions woul...

I jumped up and down in the Help Desk office when the announcement was made that school was cancelled for two weeks. In the classroom across the hall students cheered and celebrated.  It was going to be a much needed “break” - or so everyone thought. March is one of the most notorious months of the school year in terms of difficulty. It's been too long since winter break and it is not close enoug...
