Weekly Vexation: Etiquette

So, chivalry isn't dead? High school hallways are commonly filled with friendly hands holding doors, but not always.

Manners. They’ve been around for hundreds of years, and we all use them (or at least we should) and they vary from culture to culture. The necessity of manners has always been emphasized to me, and for good reason. However, I feel social etiquette has taken a back seat when it comes to our generation’s...

Something to Think About: The Supreme Court Vacancy

Something to Think About: The Supreme Court Vacancy

There's a lot of hypocrisy in the world of politics. In fact, I'd say it's pretty inescapable. It can be found on both sides of the aisle, too. Democrats are often seen as contradicting themselves in their anti-death penalty, yet pro-choice stance. And that is just one example. Democratic politicians...

Fit Bits: It's All About the Beat

I have a confession to make. Sometimes, I listen to music while I run. As a cross country runner, I feel like people expect me to be one of those hard-core, earthy, granola-loving runners, the kind who sports toe running shoes and is always sipping on a pack of Gu. And, while I do love granola, I can't say I always fit the ste...

Weekly Vexation: Exclusion

Two students gossip while leaving another girl out of the loop - high school exclusion at its prime.

February 12, 2016

We’ve all been there. Feeling left out of a group is a regular high school occurrence, and there is constant pressure to belong, whether it be to a clique, a team or even a relationship. This necessity for group acceptance is only perpetuated by the confines of high school walls. After all, no one...

As a country, we’ve waged a lot of wars. International and domestic, won and kind of won. We’ve fought a war of independence, a war against ourselves, a world war. This campaign season, the right has brought war-waging to a new level- figurative. It is impossible to watch a GOP debate without...

Fit Bits: Get Up and Smell the Roses

You can't see sunsets like these sitting in front of a computer.

These days, electronics have made us more interconnected than ever before. Need to ask your mom about the family dinner tonight? Text her. Want to see how your cousin who lives in Germany is doing? Check their Instagram. Have to show your best friend a video of you rapping? Snapchat her. Yes,...

Weekly Vexation: Chronic Lateness

A common high school sight, a student walks into class late, catching her classmates' attention.

Morgan Felt, Blogger

February 6, 2016

I really don’t see any excuses for chronic lateness. It’s not like I’ve never been late, because I have most definitely had my fair share of crises, and I understand that life happens. But when it comes down to being late all the time, especially for important events, there comes a point where...

Something to Think About: The Iowa Caucus is (Maybe?) Important

Something to Think About: The Iowa Caucus is (Maybe?) Important

Isabel Giovannetti, RHStoday Editor-in-Chief

February 3, 2016

After months of speculation, it finally happened. The Iowa caucus. The caucus receives a lot of attention, mostly because it is the first vote of the election. But in reality, it isn't very telling of the final the result. In fact, in the last two Republican primaries, the winner of Iowa did not go...

Fit Bits: Brighten Up Your Lunch

An apple a day keeps the doctor away...but some fruits and veggies will still make the doctor pretty happy. It's easy to run out of time before school, and yes, a pack of Oreos, chips and a sandwich make for a quick lunch when you're running out the door. However, fruit and vegetables provide essential...

Weekly Vexation: Put Down Your Phone

A common sight in many high schools, two students sitting together but too distracted by their phones to even look up.

Morgan Felt, Blogger

January 29, 2016

"Mental presence” is an idea that my family has always stressed, and I have come to appreciate it. But I have realized that many of my peers don’t feel the same way. Sure, cell phones have their benefits, but there comes a time where teens need to know the proper limits on their usage. I...
