There always seem to be a bit of an air of excitement on the first day of school. New year, new you, as the cliché goes. Most kids walk around with confidence. Freshmen walk around in confusion. There are new clothes and fashionable backpacks and fresh haircuts galore. But when I pulled into the parking...

After a paranoia-filled week and a half, the seniors who hadn’t gotten tagged out breathed a sigh of relief as soon as the bell signaling the beginning of first period rang. The winners of senior out were announced at today’s Senior Java. Senior...

Hey SDA! Guess what we are celebrating this month? Just guess. If you said Manly Month of March, you are technically right. Here at SDA, we have chosen to dedicate a whole month in celebration of testosterone-fueled practices, including, but not limited to the ability to grow hair on one’s face...

Senior out is officially coming to an end, as is my motivation to stay in the game. Although, for those successful seniors, the excitement is still on and going strong on this last full day. As students sprint past me during passing periods, carrying their freshly claimed cards, I get a feeling of self-pity,...

Animals. They have turned into animals. I’ll admit, when Senior Out started last week, I was slightly regretful about spending my $5 on Subman at lunch instead of a ticket. I let my laziness and frugality get in the way of what I thought would be a great big fun time with a great big group of senior...

It’s day five of senior out, and I still haven’t gotten my person out. He knew from the beginning that I had him, which made it apparent that someone betrayed me. Today has been pretty uneventful compared to others. I have been very successful at always having someone with me, so even though the...

Senioritis is officially invading the game of senior out. The first day, albeit the first week, students were passionate about both staying in and hunting down their victims. This second week, with Friday as the finish line, is reflecting the considerable lack of motivation many seniors have. Not...

It’s amazing how often you begin to see a person once you are looking for them. Everywhere I look I am now seeing my target. I think he knows. He’s seen me following him three times now. How could he not know? I haven't seen him without a person for the last three days and have followed him multiple...

I’m a nervous wreck. I didn’t have a personal run in, but helping friends led to a few interesting stories today. 1. During homeroom today, my friends and I were on the prowl to hunt down some prey. We attempted to wait it out, rather than making a full charge, and this unfortunately led to nothing...

After a long couple of days planning out my safe routes to class, figuring out sneaky ways to tag a certain senior, and making sure I would never be alone for some days to come, it was finally Mar. 2, 7 a.m., the start of Senior Out. Most seniors wait all of high school to participate in this hectic...
