In the past few years, the subject of women in engineering has come up more and more frequently. There are whole articles and even websites dedicated to the matter.

Hiding Your True Identity

Reading this title, you’re probably thinking about identity theft and all that creepy stuff, but no, I’m going to make life boring and write about personalities. As teens are growing up, not only do their looks change, but so does their character. Many preteens, teenagers and young adults try desperatel...

Sophomore Year. Woohoo!! I'm not at the bottom anymore (sorry Rachel). One year of high school down, three to go! Starting sophomore year is a bit strange because you definitely are not a little freshie, but you also aren’t an upperclassman yet. It’s kind of like being the middle child on campus. But...

Hello and goodbye fellow Day Creek students (*sheds a tear*). I know, I know there’s still one more week of school, but as an eighth-grader, that last week or so is a chance for me to savor middle school. Ridiculous, right?

In middle school and elementary school, most classes have fun holiday parties with ugly sweaters, Christmas carols, and delicious food. But in high school, things change. In high school, we “celebrate” the holiday season with Finals. Don’t Finals seem like so much fun? Haha! They aren’t. High ...

Thanksgiving break is finally here! And no, this is not another boring article about Thanksgiving.
