Movies about serial killers don’t tell the whole truth

Movies about serial killers don’t tell the whole truth

The constant stream of media about serial killers lately is exhausting. Everywhere I look, there's another movie or documentary about the "disturbing yet genius mind" of some serial killer from the late 20th century. But these people weren't geniuses whom we should praise, they were creeps who benefited...

School bathrooms aren’t porta poties

School bathrooms aren’t porta poties

I can say with confidence that almost everyone at Robinson has gone to the bathroom, seen an insanely long line, sighed and, much to their dismay, waited because they had to. As a person who doesn't really like to use the school bathrooms unless I have to, it's simply annoying to go and have to wait...

Before I begin, let me just say that football is by far my favorite sport. I love watching it whether it be two high school teams or two professional teams. A lot of my peers probably feel the same way about it and love attending high school football games. The problem lies in the other sports in high...

When I was six, I decided I wanted to be a journalist. While others dreamt of careers as princesses and Broadway stars, I envisioned myself on the sidelines as a sports reporter. I had grown up watching Erin Andrews and Leslie Visser, two influential female sports broadcasters who helped establish women’s...

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Once a month, Robinson High School decides that the first Monday does not matter, so we have a club day. I feel that club days are the biggest waste of time that the school partakes in. We should just have a normal day and completely forget that club days ever existed. The most senseless part of club...

Many students are oblivious to things happening in our country on a governmental, social, and environmental level. But, there are some things that are too important to be neglected. On Wednesday, I went around to several students and teachers at Robinson to interview them regarding their opinion on...

It's impossible to go throughout your day without hearing something offensive, especially in high school. Ever since I can remember, I've heard people make holocaust jokes, gay jokes, and school shooting jokes like they were nothing, then brush them aside, until another shooting happens and they post...

I'm an average student. I get good grades, I take an elective, and I try in school; the only difference is that I happen to have a heart disease. When I was born I was diagnosed with a life-long heart disease, and since then a dozen other things have been added on top of that diagnosis. Because of my...
