Last year, Coach Sam asked a few girl basketball players to help out during spring football. I originally signed up to get community service for AVID, and an excuse to drag my best friend to do something with me.

Growing up, alcohol surrounded my life. As a child, I thought nothing of it. My mother would drink a glass of wine, and my father would drink several cans of beer.

I spent this summer finding myself. I spent a lot of time in traffic. Looking at the cars clustering together while coming to a halt. Looking at how they imitated my life and human mortality. Looking at the blue and red lights blinking and ready to burst. I learned to spend some nights by myself whi...

Every year, I fail to prepare for school. Grade after grade, I stay up until midnight, the night before school and end up regretting it in the morning. The first day is a time to see your friends and enjoy yourself before the actual work begins, but I spent mine half-asleep and antisocial. Freshman ye...

Looking back at my freshman year, I realize it included a wave of panic attacks, smiles, tears and laughter. While everyone else talked to their middle school friends, I felt alone.

My grandmother passed away a little over a year ago. She lived overseas, so I never saw her much. She came to America to visit from time to time, but whenever she went back overseas, I did not pay much attention to her. I would be ‘too busy’ with school, or just life in general.

I remember my mom texting me in eighth grade telling me that the transfer to Legacy went through. In a few months, I would be a Bronco for four years of my life. Transferring to a new school was hard. My best friend went to Mansfield, and I only knew a handful of familiar faces starting the harshest year...

The end of an era. I could only call this moment a weird experience, trying to sum up four years of crazy into a couple of paragraphs while also acknowledging that the crazy ends soon. High school has been four years of being everything I was not while I was on my way to finding out who I am. An...
