So long, Greenwood

As the final days of senior year are rapidly approaching, there are many mixed feelings. As a senior, I feel upset about leaving a place that feels like home. I know the teachers and staff so well, and I have come to view my entire class as a big family. It is hard to leave…

Saying Goodbye

“Next-gen” consoles are not really “next-gen”

Since November, people have been going crazy over the next-gen consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4. As a target audience, we were promised improved graphics and gameplay enhancements, as well as better social interaction while playing.

Chinchilla Spotlight

Recently, two new baby chinchillas were brought into this world. I have claimed them as my own. Although they aren’t too photogenic, they’re beautiful in person. Their names are Artemis (black) and Emil (white). Now, Artemis is full of energy and hops all over the place. He is very friendly and loves attention. I’ve taught…

Let’s get Jazzy
