Growing up, I was always told to take time and appreciate the things going on around me, because time flies. Like other kids, I always ignored that until I came to Legacy. I blink...and I’m freshman. I blink again, and I am getting ready to walk the stage. As I walk across the stage, I will think of...

Morgan Richards During my entire freshman and sophomore experience, I was bombarded with upperclassmen warning me about the dangers of senioritis and procrastinating, avoiding certain teachers and classes that wouldn’t do anything but frustrate me and how important it was to get good grades during my...

Oh, senior year. Somehow my senioritis has not escalated to the point where I couldn’t write this blog, so let’s take a moment to thank God. Senior year is bittersweet. It’s bitter in the fact that you’re filled with immense amount of stress when filling out college applications, applying...

I remember walking into those silver metal doors the first day of school four years ago. I was wearing this weird leopard print shirt with my face and arms tan as can be feeling paranoid for the future. Now, I’m paler, wearing slightly less patterned shirts and excited to graduate. Time will fly ...

The NBA playoffs kicked off on April 15th, and originally I had imagined the Oklahoma City Thunder going all the way and earning their first NBA Championship. That obviously won’t happen, since the Thunder have already been eliminated from the playoffs. So, now that the Thunder are gone, I’ll anal...

There’s a point in time where everything seems to come crashing down. Sometimes more than others, and with high school being a big factor in my everyday life, it seems that life itself is never really on my side. Junior year, so far, has, or if not, been the hardest year of my high school career...

For my entire football-watching life, I’ve watched plenty of things come and go. I watched Brett Favre make the Green Bay Packers a Super Bowl contender every year, only to be replaced by his backup, Aaron Rodgers, who made the Green Bay Packers a Super Bowl contender every year. I watched Joe Flacc...

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wasn’t supposed to be this far behind everyone else. I was supposed to have everything figured out by now. But I don’t. And I’m running out of time. They teach us in middle school and high school to have our life planned out, so we know what to do wh...

It's been almost a month since the last college football game has been played. In college, bowl games only come once a year, and it's a great chance to represent your school and gain recognition as an athlete. With my father being a quarterback at Oklahoma from 1998-1991, he always tells me stories about when he went to the Gator Bowl, and it sounds like a fun time for the whole team. Howe...

Love confuses people, especially us English speakers. It could almost fit into George Orwell’s newspeak, where certain words take other words under their wings, thus eliminating the meaning and emotion behind those words. For example, in newspeak, a central symbol in Orwell’s book, 1984, old words...
