Musings of a Beaverton Teen: Conquer Life!

By Brigid Fitzpatrick Homework, school, jobs, sports, clubs, internships, studying, college planning, chores, socializing… Yikes! Being a teenager, with so much to keep track of, is one huge job. Our schedules are so full, it’s no wonder stress and high school go hand-in-hand. Trying to juggle your time and still enjoy yourself is hard, and […]

By Brigid Fitzpatrick Extra-curricular activities are a big part of life as a teen. To prepare for college and explore our interests, we always stay busy with sports, clubs, and school events, so much so that sometimes it feels like we can barely breathe! I have been a part of the Southridge Marching Band for […]

Ever since I was little, movies made by Disney, Dreamworks, and Pixar have always fascinated and entertained me with their beautiful art and magical plots. In fact, I have many fond memories of watching movie after movie in […]

Escape School, Read a Book! So Now that Summer is Over, How About a Break? Teens, we’ve traded in our swimsuits, free time and sunshine for all the accessories of school: homework, supplies and, of course, books. While summer is all fun and games, school is hard work.

Musings of a Beaverton Teen: A ‘Journey’ of a Thousand Miles

From what I can gather, wolves are rather popular creatures in our pop culture. I’ve seen everything: guys and gals dubbing wolves as their favorite animals, teenaged artists creating their ‘wolf-sanas’ (what they would look like if they were actually born a wolf), and the ever-popular series Twilight, which took place in the Pacific Northwest […]

A furry ball of energy, referred to by my family as ‘Gracie’, has turned my days upside down. That’s right teens; I got a puppy! I’m sure you’re all wondering if having a puppy is worth the loss of sleep, gnawed on toes, and accidents on the carpet. Recently, as Gracie yips nonstop while ruining […]

Join the Gardening Revolution! Most of us teens avoid yard work like a plague. Dirt is, simply put, dirty, and the star of the yard show. However, I believe starting a garden is a project worth the labor. Gardening may be extremely rewarding and an addicting experience too. So if you can get past the […]

Fighting Boredom in Beaverton! By Brigid Fitzpatrick As a Beaverton teen, there are often times when life gets a little slow causing the brain to stop thinking of new ideas for what to do and where to go. Even when I get together with my friends, the conversation can sometimes be the typical “soooo, whaddya […]
