The Power of Classical Music for the Unmusical

I never listened to my little brother when he played the violin. He played (and still plays) constantly. Nevertheless, I was always impressed when watching his nimble fingers dance effortlessly across the strings. I would think about my fingers, small and thin like his and yet irrevocably handicap...

When I think about what the American flag stands for, my mind starts racing. There is an endless amount of symbolism surrounding the flag of our nation.

Red. White. Blue. When I think of those colors, I think of a nation brought together by believing that they could beat all odds. A melting pot of different cultures and upbringings that live together in harmony. There is no irony in the name “United States of America.” Therefore, we should...

With Christmas and other holidays on the clock, we all have something to look forward to; whether it’s missing school, baking cookies, or getting that highly anticipated visit from Kris Kringle himself. Personally, one of my favorite holiday traditions is my family’s homemade ice rink. For the ...

Among my earliest memories is hopping in my dad’s car on the way to kindergarten and hearing Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”. That’s how I began my day: a different song, each one as capturing as the next. Each morning, I would explore something new. From Floyd to Cream to Sabbath, I was o...

Socks have been a big part of my life for the past 4 years. Like most freshmen, I found myself lost- literally and metaphorically- during my first month at BHHS. 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...

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...
