With college quickly approaching, I have been taking time to look back to my freshman year. I can still remember the first day of freshman year, wondering what kind of new people I would meet. I already knew that I wouldn’t...

My life, thus far, has all taken place within the confines of a safely structured bubble. When I think about the fact that graduation is within hands' reach, and the prospect of freedom is finally nearing, unexpectedly, the only...

Being the scrawny freshman that I was, I can’t say I walked into East on my first day of school filled with confidence. I did not expect to accomplish anything spectacular or make much of an impact. However, as I progressed...

Looking back on these past four years at East, I’ve realized how much things have changed. The freshman version of myself was a completely different person than who I am today. Freshman year was probably my most awkward year...

The alarm rings. Roll over. It's 6:35. Get out of bed. Yawn. Take shower. Get dressed. Dry off. Brush teeth. Put in right contact. Put in left contact. Comb hair. Eat breakfast. Put on Nikes.  And this is just the first half...

Everybody takes a different path through high school.  However, all Cherry Hill East students can proudly hold their heads up high and state “I survived several all-nighters to finish my english essays, I overcame the harsh...

Some people love playing sports while others like chess, but my passion lies in music and the arts.  Believe me, high school has taught me a lot inside the classroom, but for me, school truly begins when the bell rings at 2:30. ...

It would be an understatement to say that I was nervous when I first stepped foot into Cherry Hill East as an incoming freshman. I was simply petrified. As soon as I walked through the student entrance, I automatically searched...

East has been my home away from home for the past four years, mainly because I am so involved in our theatre department.  I have participated in every lab theatre, main stage and one act since my freshman year.  I haven’t...

When I came to East at the middle of my freshman year, I had no idea what was in store for me.  I didn’t know a single person and had no idea what to expect.  After four years of personal growth and fond friendships, I cherish...

Spirit Week at East can be described in one word: stressful. There's always that one guy that forgets the moves to "Magic", while the girl on your left pesters you teach her the moves to Shiny Teeth and Me. Then there are the...

Have you seen the movie Rubber (2010)?  Don’t let your thoughts go astray here please, because I do have a legitimate point.  Anyway, the movie, which depicts a homicidal car tire’s destructive rampage during which it mur...

What? I have to leave East this June?  There isn’t any “13th grade”?  When did the end of my high school creep up on me?  How did this happen? Thinking over everything, I realize that between that first day walkin...

Thanks to the almost punitive size of my small locker, I was forced to carry all my essentials with me in my backpack. I have band-aids, scissors, tissues, multiple pencils, pens, highlighters, a planner, my phone (yes, turned...
