Bullying can shape a life, cause emotional scars

April 4, 2012 in DL-Online

The other day I was sitting in school and my teacher handed out a magazine with an article written by Taylor Swift. It was about being bullied.
According to her, she was bullied pretty bad in high school, and her tool to get over that was writing songs. Continue Reading

Best vacation ever

March 14, 2012 in DL-Online

I’ve always been the kind of person who’d prefer to be outside seeing new things and places, than sitting inside watching TV, or playing Play Station. Continue Reading

ALC gets bad rep, but actually very good

February 1, 2012 in DL-Online

So I was watching a TV show a few weeks back, I don’t know what the show was, but a lady quoted “high school were some of the best times of my life; I made some of the best memories I have.” Continue Reading

Looking forward to a different music fest

Growing up in a town like Detroit Lakes definitely has its interesting, but unusual privileges. So does having the editor of the local newspaper as your father. Continue Reading

Staying home, ringing doorbells maybe weren’t such good ideas

January 4, 2012 in DL-Online

Being a teenager, I guess I can say I’ve gotten into my fair share of mischief. I could tell hours of old stories of trouble I got into a few years back, but of all stories I can tell, only one is worthy of writing about. Continue Reading

Reflections: Old memories of comfort

December 21, 2011 in DL-Online

Anyone ever have those little moments in time that stick in your mind, or that you can fall back on when times get tough?

Finding one last teenage hurrah

December 7, 2011 in DL-Online

Being young was such a thrill. I remember waiting the whole year for Christmas to come, and then on Christmas Eve, I’d get about three hours of sleep. I’d wake up and go running downstairs to my stocking, and I’d sit in the living room until the sun came up and it was time to open presents. Those days were good. Continue Reading

It’s the end of the world — or not

November 30, 2011 in DL-Online

Dec. 21, 2012 rumor is the world’s gonna end on this date. It’s not the first doomsday prediction (most recent was April 21, 2011, which of course turned out to be false), but I have to say it’s probably got the most publicity since the new millennium. Continue Reading

Comfort in never-changing traditions

November 23, 2011 in DL-Online

It’s crazy how things can change so much, but yet stay the same. My life has been changing so much I can hardly keep track of it, but there is always those basic necessities that don’t change, those little things that are the same year after year. Continue Reading
