The blow to the face, the ringing in your ear, the sting on your cheek, the drowning feeling of indescribable sadness and forced guilt. Emptiness surrounds you, however it has to be your fault. You really must have been flirting with another guy this time, you weren’t just being nice. You begin to question your every move. Was I really staring at him? Were those text messages to my guy friend as innocent as I thought they were? I must have done something to deserve this. After all, he loves me.

Two hours of consecutive six second videos. How tedious does that sound? You begin to ask yourself, this can’t be me? It was just 11 o’clock, how is it already two in the morning? No way have I been staring at a screen for hours at a time. In this day and age however, technology has the power to do exactly that, and I too have fallen victim.

The “ideal” heat of a kiss is fueled by two things: passion and environment. Usually, the environment of an on-call room in a hospital and the passion of a surgeon don’t fit the average person’s “ideal” kiss. For characters Meredith Grey and Derick Sheperd on the hit show Grey’s Anatomy, this was more than the perfect environment and the passion you may ask? Entirely effortless.

Dedication: the quality of being committed to a task or purpose. For senior Arthur Vivero his purpose is clear, and his commitment to basketball is an understatement. The rush of the crowd, the suspense of the buzzer, and the pressure to win; that is what fuels him to not only to be his best, but to consistently improve.

A person whose behavior or success can be emulated by others: A role model. Senior Zac Slaydon is the definition of a role model not only because of his baseball achievements, but also because of his academic success. And his positive attitude about baseball doesn’t stop at the baseball foul line.

For nine months, I waited. For nine months, I planned and anticipated what was to come. For nine months, I spent most of my time imagining what it would be like to meet my daughter. And finally on January 21 I didn’t have to imagine, plan, or wonder what she’d look like or how she’d make me feel. It all became real. After six hours of contractions and 30 minutes of pushing, they handed me the closest thing to heaven I’ve ever seen. She joined me in this world, and she’s mine. I delivered a piece of perfection.Those two days in the hospital, it all felt like a dream and with the nurses there to help, parenting Aleeya seemed doable.

Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead. This particular death, however, is a little more complicated than most. Murder, suspense, drama and thrills; all words I use to describe the hit series Pretty Little Liars.

Maybe it’s hormones or maybe it’s just me being paranoid as usual, but I honestly expect the worst. I’m not saying having a baby is horrible or anything, but I do think that my life will change dramatically.
