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...

Classrooms, hallways, and even the agora, defining places of wonder at Central High, are becoming infected. 'What is this disease?' one may ask.
