The Sounds of My Life

The Sounds of My Life

As our class size grew from 100 well-known names to a whopping 460 strange faces, my loud personality seemed to fall silent. Yet, by the sec...

Memoirs are a challenging feat. The autobiographical style of writing incorporates the constant challenge of finding a balance between the honest truth and what the audience is interested in.

Bec Grippo, Staff Writer

June 1, 2017


Filed under Opinion

College. First, there is the preparation. Then, there is the application. Finally, there is the decision. This decision is difficult. There are so many great schools out there, but which one is right for me? Do I want to go out of state or stay in state? What kind of qualities do...

Eyes on the road, but my mind in a different place, I pull into the driveway of my house and think to myself “how did I get here?”. How could I have possibly arrived home in one piece? It was as if one moment I was getting in my car to leave and the next minute I was home. While my foot pressed...
