Marking their space: Seniors paint parking spots for Project Graduation fundraiser

As the class of 2016 awaited the upcoming school year, they looked forward to many of the perks of being a senior, including parking in the closer spaces near the gym, but as schedule pick-up loomed they were informed that that lot would be converted into a staff-only lot. There was a silver lining to the parking situation though. As parents on the Project Graduation committee created a fundraising opportunity that would allow the parking situation to be a little more appealing. For $20, seniors have the chance to purchase guaranteed spots for the entire year and paint them with their own, pre-approved design.

Relationship goals: Old, new friends create balanced support system

No win situation: America seen as over-involved, self-absorbed

Lately I’ve noticed a lot of people on Tumblr have started to bash Americans, despite Tumblr being made and maintained by Americans. What bothers me the most is that the non-Americans (and even some Americans) are calling us “ignorant” and “stupid” for not knowing about the world’s problems to the depths that they think we should. One post that really struck a nerve with me was one that stated that Tumblr needed to stop being so “America-centric”.

It ain’t no thang, but a manner thang: Teens should concentrate on manners and habits for future

Sit up straight! No elbows on the table! Chew with your mouth closed! We’ve all heard these obnoxious remarks from our parents and guardians, but our stubborn minds want to reject these orders. Manners can often be thought to be unimportant, but should not be so quickly dismissed.

Making cents of things: Teens find value in jobs through hard-work, responsibility

A rose gold watch from Fossil, a phone plan for the latest iPhone 6s, or even some new clothes – all things a teen could have without using their parents money, with their own job. Teens can start working as young as 15 with a working permit, and at the legal working age is 16 in Texas. Once a teen hits 16 they should begin applying for jobs and looking to the future.

Melting dreams, happiness: The summer without Blue Bell

In the heat of summer, the only thing that keeps Southerners alive is their beloved Brenham original: Blue Bell Ice Cream. There are days that are emblazoned in the minds of all Texans; one such moment is the tragic day that Blue Bell announced the devastating recall on all of their products: popsicles, ice cream bars, and most importantly, the ice cream itself. The recall was due to a listeria outbreak in multiple factories, causing them to shut down production, along with general Texan happiness and sanity.

Backpacks and moonlight: Gaining perspective, experience through summer abroad

Suitcase- check. Backpack – check. Multiple forms of currency – check. Passport… Long story, but check.

This summer I traveled to Europe alone for the first time. Most 16-year-old’s parents would never consider allowing them to travel abroad, much less alone, but my parents and sister were born in Bosnia and much of my family is scattered across Europe. Having family live in a different countries has made it difficult to keep in touch with everyone, so my family and I try to go to Bosnia i Hercegovina as much as we can during summer breaks. We are the only ones in our family who live in America, so it’s easier for us to travel to Europe rather than everyone else coming here. Also, it’s a lot easier for Americans to travel out of the country than my family from Europe to get a visa to come to the US.
