If you have ever walked through Central High's parking lots, you have most likely seen how much garbage people leave on the ground.

Over the years, I have made many interesting choices in my life. Some choices were made spur of the moment, while others I pondered for months. I tend to be a very rational person, often weighing out the good and bad or pros and cons of any situation. In school, I generally stick to what I know, what...

Let's be honest here guys, New Year's resolutions are kind of a joke. We often tell ourselves we are going to lose weight or learn to play the violin. One year, I decided to learn how to do a handstand. Understandably, I still do not know how to do a handstand. Unfortunately, most people drop their resolutions...
