It is hard to think that in only a month I will officially graduate and move on to college. It is even harder to think that I will no longer be a part of Hi Times/Slicer Newsroom. As a “lifer,” in this class I spent the past three years of my high school career writing well over 100 stories, holding ...

Walking into this school scared me. I have never seen a school so big. I thought middle school was big; high sch...

You might not understand how hard it is for me to leave. You might just think that I have had such a great time here, but for me it seems like someone gave me a huge and delicious piece of candy ten months ago and now they are taking it away from me without letting me enjoy the last bite. But this i...

Beautiful music from an organ that she couldn't see rose over the chatter of the crowd. She looked for the voices she heard but saw only empty seats around her. Flowers were suspended all around the room and everything was a different shade of beauty and peace. And then she saw him. He was standing in the...

My mom died from cancer four days after my third birthday. I don’t remember her, only her funeral, and because of that, her death didn’t bother me much when I was younger. Soon after she had died, I got my stepmom, who I’m very grateful to have. She treats me and my sister like her own and I’...

I entered high school as an optimistic, innocent, 14 year old girl, who actually thought High School Musical was an accurate representation of how high school really was.
