What do you do on your snow day? Do you sit inside like nothing happened? Do you take the opportunity to “spring” clean your house? Do you bake everything inside your kitchen? Do you go outside and go on an adventure? What is your snow day like? Everyone has their own snow day. Most people that...

If you suck at driving, get off the road. Nothing gets to me more than people who don't understand the basics of driving. Did you even read any part of the manual before you got your permit, or did you just wing it? Did you not pay attention during the 5-hour course? Did you not take drivers-ed at all? I...

Baking is one of my favorite things to do. I do it all the time. My favorite thing to bake is cupcakes. I really enjoy it to the point where I almost decided to do it for the rest of my life.

With two minutes left in the half, I’m sprinting down the field with the ball at my feet. As I approach the goal the defender comes at me, I go to make a turn around her. When I plant my foot, my leg doesn’t turn with me, just my knee. Next thing I know I’m lying on the ground not able to move...

Lake life is all anyone could ever ask for. Being on a lake, whether for just a weekend or the entire summer, is the best feeling. A lot of people I know would rather go to a beach and tan for the summer, but me? Well, you wouldn't see me anywhere but in Lake George, NY. I’ve spent at least one...

Growing up, I learned that nothing comes easy. I was always taught the importance of working, and the responsibility it brings on. My parents always told me stories of when they were teens/young adults and would work every day just to start their own life without their parents help. With their stories...
