Senior year is one of the toughest years of our lives. We’re applying, getting admitted or rejected from our prospective schools, leaving town, and getting ready to say goodbye to our friends. But I recently realized that senior year brings everyone closer -- for one last time.

The carvings in these buildings, the structures are "rich" in history like the pastries they serve. I look around to see these vast buildings and, as they stare back at me, I could feel the seriousness they intend to give. On these streets, Mozart once stood.  I fade back into reality, as I realize...

Imagine this: It’s half way through your lunch period, and your turkey sandwich remains untouched. You haven’t eaten anything yet, because you’re finishing the English homework that you couldn’t do last night. You didn’t get home until 8:00 because your team had an away game, and then you had...
