My Life as a Student

"I wrote this piece to entertain myself of the school year and keep pushing until the end. High school really hit me starting from this year and worse along its way up to may. I kept finding myself in the dark, trying to avoid the reality of having to keep working my way up through education. Education I feel like never seems to be complete in any means and will be forever continuous." -Kelly Yoon
Kelly Yoon, News Editor May 17, 2016

Monday, I should wake up early and go to school Or should I go back to bed with the cookies I stole Tuesday, I’m set and ready to go It’s a great day until I spill coffee on myself Wednesday,...

Premonition

"It's a Si-Fi/ fantasy short story about a high school girl who can see into the future and the horrors that come with having such a 'gift'. I wasn't really inspired by anything more like I had an idea, and I ran with it. Like most people, I've always wanted super powers, and this story is more of an embodiment of how I feel I would live my life if I could see into the future." -Samantha Waters

Staring into the street, with my eyes blurred from tears, my body went rigid. My hands clasped my mouth to muffle my screams. “Why, why, WHY!” I thought to myself. My sleeves had been coved in...

On Truth

Will Harper, Student Submission, 11th Grade May 2, 2016

People omit truth all the time The effect is not so sublime. We can’t build faith, we can’t build trust How does a liar feel this lust? Sometimes the truth is too hard to hear So, in...

The Time of Growth

"I've always wondered what a story would sound like if it was told from the point [of view] of tree. That's essentially what this story is, a tree telling it's journey of how it grew." -Jessica Objartel
Jessica Objartel, Sudent Submission, 11th Grade April 20, 2016

At first I had only known darkness, the warmth of the earth, and the coldness of the water that quenched my thirst. Then, after what I assume was time had passed, I came to know the vast, never ending...

A Bakery in Italy

"I wrote this piece to acknowledge the gender roles that society, and parents in particular, place upon kids. It is vitally important not to discourage a child to be his or her true, authentic self; this happens far too often when society adds in specific gender roles based purely on outdated and ridiculous stereotypes." -Faith Settipani
Faith Settipani, Student Submission, 11th Grade March 30, 2016

He wanted to start a bakery. A bakery in Italy where the walls were draped with luscious green vines and a canal could be seen out the rickety wooden window. He baked for hours: strawberry cupcakes...

Future

"I came across a writing prompt that said, "Write about leaving", and as a senior my mind is usually on college, so the words just flowed out of me. I have many days like the day I wrote this where I can't help but daydream about the future, and about freedom." -Olivia Pastore
Olivia Pastore , Staff Writer March 21, 2016

“Are you excited for college?” They all seem to ask me tirelessly, and sometimes I’m afraid to tell them, to let my truth bleed from my mouth: I imagine leaving home almost every day. I...

This older woman asked to be allowed to paint within the art museum in D.C. and I was fortunate enough to witness her painting an exact replica of this famous painting. She has a true talent and would rather paint for the joy of it without being considered a professional and without seeking fame.

When Writers Write

"A simple poem about the life, struggle, and eventual "inspiration" for modern, typical, writers of today (especially those that use computers when writing essays, poems, and articles). My inspiration for writing this poem was to base it upon a stream of consciousness. I thought about what I wanted to do, which was write a poem, which led me to talk about writing poems and essays and any literary writings, for that matter; just the typical problems that come when attempting to write." -Elton Govada
Elton Govada , Student Submission, 11th Grade March 10, 2016

I sit on a chair, waiting I stare at the screen, dreaming I look around the room, thinking but I can't seem to find it The strokes of my fingers move swiftly The letters on the page appear immediately The...

The Apple Thief

"This piece is about learning life lessons." -Mahima Siripurapu

The sound of winter sits inside my head The sound of the wind carrying away the fallen leaves As the piercing wind soars up the crevice in my sleeves The sound of white snow silently engulfing...

An Observation of Nature

"Cloud watching." -Emma Cave
Emma Cave, Student Submission, 11th grade January 29, 2016

The mist that covers the earth Paints a picture of innocence in the sapphire ether. A landscape above our heads We have yet to set foot on. They turn as fast as time Never the same as they were...
