"Long Live" is all I have to say about Taylor Swift's new album. With a new perspective on life, Taylor Swift enters a world of music that isn't just pop lyrics or country twang but a jazzy singer/songwriter twist. The new album really struck a new cord. Swift's music style and lyric content has really grown and matured. Junior Shannon Apgar said, "It's ...

There’s a disease traveling BMC. It started off with the seniors, and is highly contagious. It seems to be spreading wildly to the freshman, too. It’s called “I’m-too-good-for-the-rules-itis”.  It’s a brain disorder that causes some BMC students to believe that they don’t have to abide...

There’s white, there’s black, yellow, and even orange. Believe it or not many people hate colors, no lie. This type of behavior is called racism, hatred towards someone of a different race. The election of Barack Obama, the first African American president, can’t change the fact that we still live in thi...

This week, I was able to go to Mojo’s, which is on SE Main Street, in Simpsonville. This place creates unique burger choices that give you a new standard on how specialty burgers should be. The one that I got, the Cheesy haystack, had provolone cheese, onion rings, bacon, and their special Mojo’...

I really enjoyed going to fall for Greenville this weekend. In total, I tried stuff from 9 of the 43 places there. Because I tried so much stuff, I decided to make a list to put all the things I tried in categories. I was very pleased with all the things that I tried except for one.   Dessert ...

Located on North Main Street in downtown Simpsonville, this place is just a short walk away from Upstate Karate. When I first got out of the car, I noticed the incredible smell that you get at most smokehouses. It’s always a good sign if you can smell the food from the sidewalk. When I first stepped in, I notice...

 It can take control of your life and can change your grades drastically. But students seem to embrace procrastination anyway. "Procrastination is not as bad as some people put it out to be. I work my best under pressure," said Sophomore Austin Maxwell. The truth is that procrastination is really danger...

I went to see Valentine’s Day movie, and I was completely underwhelmed by it. I felt like the movie had every person who played in a romantic comedy or “chick flick” in the past 5 years. It was done in the same style as He’s Just Not That into You, but this time everybody understood the relationship connect...

Mrs. Yon asked us to write a story about our personal hero. Who were they? What did they overcome? When did they live? Where did they grow up? Why did we choose them? How did they INSPIRE us? I thought of an American teenager who is in high school, just like I am:   A group of teens at Francis Howell No...
