By Giulia Pincetti (’24) Ever since I was little I have been taught that every story doesn’t have one side, it is multi-dimensional. A simple sound or movement made by the smallest or largest of people can be perceived in millions of different ways, all slightly unique and different. Maybe this is because we all can’t sit in the same spot at the same moment … Continue reading Perspective
By Ava Casab (‘23) *Game: (Old diary. Press 2 to read.) Game: (You open the diary.)* Dear Diary, I awoke this morning on the couch to silence. In all my years I’ve never felt a silence as loud as it. Nobody was around me to hum making breakfast or sing off-key in the shower or to toss the morning laundry in. There were no laundry … Continue reading Side Quest: The Old Diary
By Marina Campoy-LoVasco (’23) People are so funny. The things we come up with in their head and write down on paper. The things we say aloud. The things we do. Humans do so many dumb things. Like selling peeled oranges in plastic containers when the orange peel itself is a container, or hitting and yelling at machinery when it stops working. When, for the … Continue reading Laugh Until I Cry
By Cathy Shan (’23) “Just kidding”. It is a phrase I often hear, usually after someone has said something unintentionally or jokingly. But more often than not, it is said when someone says something rude or unkind to someone, most often about something that the person cares deeply about, as an indicator that they don’t mean what they said. “That shirt looks bad on you; … Continue reading Just Kidding
By Aadi Shiv Malhotra (‘21) When Henry Ford revealed the Model T in 1908, he wanted the automobile to be affordable, simple to operate, and durable. The Model T was one of the first mass-produced cars allowing Henry Ford to achieve his dream of creating a universal car. Since then Ford has become one of the largest and most influential automakers in the world, selling … Continue reading Ford’s Electric Future: An exclusive interview with Ford’s EV Boss
By Giulia Pincetti (‘23) Love. You can’t really love someone unless they love you back. You can adore something that doesn’t love you back, like a celebrity, but you can’t love them. Why do I say this? If we keep telling ourselves that we love people or objects just to express this emotion, then we lose its powerful meaning. Love is not a one way … Continue reading Love is a Tricky Thing
By Marina Campoy-LoVasco (‘23) When something disappears, how long does it take you to notice? I mean, it depends, right? If you have no food in your cupboards, you’re bound to realize at some point. But what if the smudge on the wall in the corner of your room vanishes? Did you realize it was gone? Did you get up every day and look at … Continue reading Smudges on the Wall
By Cathy Shan (‘23) As Valentine’s Day approaches, love starts to fill the air as people frantically run around, trying to remember what their significant other’s idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day is. However, unlike those around me, I found myself asking the same question, one that seemed incredibly simple yet so difficult to answer: What is love? It’s a term that we hear throughout … Continue reading What is Love?
By Ava Casab (‘23) I’m not a vocal person: when given the chance to speak, I much prefer to stay silent. It makes it much easier to watch what’s happening around you, to notice all the tiny details of everyday life. Like, for example, the fact that there are exactly 34 steps on the north staircase of the school building. Or the knowledge that there … Continue reading Watermelon Pink
