Obsessive tendencies

Sloan McKeehan, Staff writer October 11, 2023

Grape juice reigns supreme over all other drinks

Heartthrob heartache avoided with Harry Styles appearance on teen-scene

Sloan McKeehan, Staff writer September 19, 2022
Everyone in their early teens has a heartthrob, whether It was Justin Bieber or one of the Jonas brothers, I was always fan-girling over the next popular teen boy singer. I was always dreaming of Justin Bieber appearing on my doorstep and confessing his undying love for me. Then once I respond with “YES, YES, TAKE ME INTO YOUR ARMS AND NEVER LET ME GO,” he would proceed to do his choreographed song and dance while throwing rose petals at me. 

Childhood activities taken for granted, would love to go back during teen years

This will be Ponce’s 7th year running the club. He constantly strives to get kids involved and socialize with their peers through the game of chess.

Travolta is loved world-wide, whether it's for his more serious action-filled roles or for his goofy ones.

Lack luster stores leave mall shoppers livid

Sloan McKeehan September 22, 2021
People of Bryan/College Station, let's face it our mall sucks. We're all thinking it, we all know it. The mall has been regressing for a while now. All the stores we once loved have fled the mall and their replacements are junky off-brand stores no one has ever heard of.
