Hectic Homework Hour

Molly McFadden, Editor

I am one of the many who have a Netflix account. I also am one of those who don’t use it as often as I should, especially because of the double-digit number that follows the dollar sign attached to the monthly usage fee, even if you don’t watch one minute of one show. And finally, when I do use it, ...

My Top Ten Songs of the 2000s

Grace Clay, Editor

May 29, 2019

The first decade of the 21st Century has probably been the best one so far. I’m not just saying that because it’s when I was brought into this world, I’m saying that because it was the least stressful decade of my life. Kidding… sort of. I do miss it because it was a million times easier (I...

The next installment of My Top Ten Songs is the 1980s. This is the decade in which my mother was born, and the only thing she likes from this era is the movies. She has definitely passed her love for “The Breakfast Club” down to me. And “Pretty in Pink” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” In addi...
