I am not the type of person who says “like” after every word, but I will admit I say it more than what is grammatically necessary. That being said, not saying the word “like” for a week was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Not saying a word that you use on a daily basis is way more...

The Cy Woods Wildcats, 4-6 (4-5 in district) managed to lose to the already play off eliminated Jersey Village Falcons, 3-7 (3-6 in district), by an astonishing score of 73-74. The...

Have you ever noticed how popular songs have a usual sort of format? Like usually there's some sort of opening in the beginning with a beat with four notes over and over.

Nathan Sykes, an English singer and songwriter, released a single called "Kiss Me Quick". This is his debut single, and it has put a good impression in my mind.

I am not good or bad. I can be repulsive, disgusting, and deranged. But I can also be alluring, seductive, and radiant.

Black Lives Matter began trending in 2013 when a series of police brutality incidents towards African Americans began. This movement has too much of a presence to ignore. The United States is so deeply invested into this movement already. A student at Cy Woods performed, a rap at the talent show...
