Thirty, Flirty & Crash Diving Into A First Date

Julia Harrison, Opinion Editor

February 5, 2015

My friends and I walk through the streets of Staunton in Patagonia vests, knitted scarves, gloves and headbands, fighting the bitter cold and complaining about how windy it is, reapplying Burt’s Bees or Vaseline or those weird egg-chapsticks every five minutes.

All I’m saying is, Travis Koshko better get his facts straight because I’m tired of waking up at 7 a.m. and rolling out of bed on mornings that, according to Mr. Koshko, the ground “will be coated in snow” but is, instead, coated in wet rain. All I’m saying is, I don’t think it’s an...

As I witnessed the dozens of feet shovel around me, I felt like Mufasa as he's...

Listen Deliberately

Julia Harrison, Editorials Editor

November 13, 2014

I’ve skipped school (sorry, Ms. Grimm), as I always do for too many days in October, to spend a day wandering through the woods. The walk began with my changing Spotify playlists four different times from “Deep Focus” to “Autumn Acoustic” to “Afternoon Acoustic” to eventually “calmin...

Wow. That is all that I can say about these past couple of months. Wow, I can’t believe it’s senior year. Wow, I can’t believe I am applying to college. Wow, I can’t believe that I got into a college. Wow, I can’t believe that I will be leaving everything I’ve ever known behind. Just wow. I...
