Lessons from the Field: What a ride it’s been. Thank you’s and what’s next for Patty G

I’ve learned in my short time on this Earth that walking away from something is not easy. Especially if you poured your heart and soul into it for four years. This May marks the end of my high school career, and it’s hard to believe the ride is coming to an end. I have to […]

Lessons from the Field: From Starting Line to Tee Box. And a Rewarding Tale of Self-Growth.

It was late July before my junior year, and my family was on vacation for a baseball tournament my brother was playing in South Carolina. We were staying on a golf course not far from the beach. At the time, back in Ohio, I was missing my annual summer golf program called The First Tee. […]

Do What Makes You Happy

Do What Makes You Happy

OXFORD — Do you really know where you want to go though? And do you know how expensive it is to simply apply? And not only that, but you have to pay to send your ACT score to that specific school. Nothing about this process is cheap or simple. So far I have submitted my […]

Lessons from the Field: On Opportunity. And A Big Decision.

Lessons from the Field: On Opportunity. And A Big Decision.

Knowing what’s coming next is hard. For those exiting THS in May and heading off to a new destination, there’s plenty of uncertainty about what life will be exactly like. For me, someone who doesn’t even know in what part of the country they will be living in next year, it’s a little unnerving. I […]

Since 2012, the interest in vegan free searches quadrupled on Google. For 2018, going vegan is considered to be the largest […]

A Senior’s Search: I know What I Don’t Want To Do

A Senior’s Search:  I know What I Don’t Want To Do

OXFORD — Here I am sitting in Mr. Davie’s office again: “How about you check out this college?” Mr. Davie asks. “Ehh. I don’t know,” I replied. Being a senior is difficult. You get so overwhelmed with all of the different responsibilities you have to take on. The ACT becomes more and more embedded in […]

Lessons from the Field: 30 Short Minutes; Looking Back on Mixing It Up

As we approached Mix it Up Day, I felt exactly the way the rest of the school did. How many people were going to buy in? What was going to be end result? Would it improve all of the divisions in our school? How would it work? I got a strong sense that many things […]

Lessons From the Field: Passion is Everything

Lessons From the Field: Passion is Everything

I’ve always been a big believer in self-motivation and creating your own moment. No one on Earth can find your passion. Not a single person can motivate you every single day. People can’t truly tell you what you like and don’t like. You can’t rely on others to do it. The only person that can […]
