At the very beginning of my freshman letter, I said that I wanted to be an editor for the yearbook. Four years later, I smiled when I read that on the couch in the newspaper room because what I didn’t know was that I’d be sashed as a content editor for the yearbook at the end of that year, and th...

My four years here at Bowie High School are finally coming to a close. Oh, what pain this school has caused me. Four years of constant stress and annoyance.

I entered Bowie High School as an overwhelmed yet wildly excited freshman. High school is one of the most romanticized stepping stones that I didn't feel quite ready to embark.

As I’m writing this there is less than ten days until I take my last finals for high school, this feels unreal and most of the time I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that I will never have to go through the motions of secondary school again.
