This year I vow, I say to myself. This year I vow to throw away the mask I wear for everyday deception. This year I vow to, like many others, start healthier habits in my daily life. This year I vow to work on quieting my mind. This year I vow to continue to work hard and recognize my growth. This year I vow to believe in myself. This year I vow to use my time and be functional. This year I vow on progress, and not perfection, because last year all I gave myself was empty promises, fake smiles, and unnecessary tears shed. This year I vow, because tomorrow isn’t promised and I’d like to start living for today. This year I vow to be better that the me I was before.

Antoinette Baking Company

Antoinette Baking Company is a charming bakery and coffee shop located in the Tulsa Arts District, Downtown, on Main St. They have a vast menu that includes an impressive selection of vegan and gluten-free items. I ordered a Vegan Faux-re-o and a cappuccino with almond milk. The Vegan Faux-re-o was rich, and I almost questioned if it was really vegan. The cappuccino was creamy and a great energizer after a long day. The customer service was outstanding. The barista was super sweet and asked me questions to make sure she made my cappuccino just the way I like it. Overall, Antoinette Baking Company had a warm and friendly environment with delicious food and drinks.

September 20, 2019. Seem like a familiar date? Well, you’re not crazy. Everyone and their mom knows about the Area 51 Raid. If for some reason you haven’t heard, here's the rundown:

First of all, what is Area 51?

The U.S. Government has stated that Area 51, officially named Homey Airport, is a highly classified United States Air Force facility. It is located in Southern Nevada, 83 miles northwest of Las Vegas. Based on historical evidence and context, it is likely a facility that develops and tests experimental aircraft and weapons. However, we don't have to believe that. Due to the large amount of secrecy around Area 51 and the government's initial denial of its existence, countless conspiracy theories have surfaced over the years revolving around involving Area 51. These include but are not limited to:

1. The storage and examination of crashed alien aircraft and development of aircraft based on alien technology,
2. Top secret meetings with extraterrestrial leaders,
3. The imprisonment of extraterrestrials,
4. Development of exotic energy weapons,
5. Development of technology that controls weather, and
6. Development of teleportation and time travel.

Many of these theories include extraterrestrials and their technology. This was the platform for the Area 51 Raid to take form. Now it all started as a joke, obviously. If we trace it back, we end up at a Facebook page called “Sh--posting cause im in shambles” which is also under the category of  “religious organization”. Under the events tab we find The Alienstock Movement taking place September 19, and the famous Storm Area 51,They Can’t Stop All of Us taking place September 20th. What started as a joke has now racked up over 2 million people that have signed up for the event. The creator of the event has even come out and said it is all a joke and advised people to not actually raid Area 51. This happened after the Air Force made a statement saying they would stand ready to defend the facility if anyone attempted to enter. Of course with blowing up in the way it did, everyone was and is talking about it. Tied to the joke, dozens of memes depicting the raid, and what the aliens might look like, have been seen all over the internet. They provided quite the entertainment over the summer.

---
*Updated September 21st, 2019*

The myth, the legend, the Area 51 Raid. What actually happened though? Well, despite all the hype, September 20th came and went, and nothing especially eventful went down. No one was shot, and no aliens were freed (allegedly). Surprisingly, the Federal Government was expecting thousands to show up. Of the 2 million that signed up to go, only about 100 came through. The most exciting thing that happened was public indecency. That means a man was arrested for urinating in public. The lesson here is to not take jokes on the internet (too) seriously.

**Our Climate Strike**
*by Monica Martinez*

On Friday September 20th, The Guthrie Green in Downtown Tulsa hosted the Global Climate Strike for Tulsa. Young people from all over Tulsa gathered with signs in their hands and perseverance in their hearts. We all wanted one thing: change. Words urging lawmakers to change environmental policies could be heard everywhere you turned. Voices filled with anger expressed their frustration towards those in power who were not willing to make a change. This was the scene across our country, from New York City to Austin. The strike wasn’t just limited to the U.S. however, over 150 countries across the world participated. A total of over 4 million people all rallied for the same cause, keeping our stay on this planet longer.

**Why we Strike**
*by Nathaniel Ijams*

Three days after the first day of the Global Climate Strike, the UN Climate Summit began. During a long day, countries from around the world commented on the dangers of climate change and environmentally destructive behaviours. Greta Thunberg, in her [speech](https://archive.org/details/thunberg-un-summit-speech), criticised the "empty words" of the world's leaders in the past. I can do nothing but agree. They stress the importance of climate change and do nothing. They praise new technology and fail to invest in it. They give accolades to children for their bravery but only go back to their cowardice once they are gone. Our world is obsessed with the idea of an eternal era of profit and prosperity. Has this ever been achieved? No. Some things are worth fighting for. If not now, then when? If not us, then who?

The sun is hot like an overheating car engine. 

The steam and heat of a boiling teapot waiting to explode. 

The glaciers and ice being melted by mother sun herself.

Does anyone know her fiery heat? 

Does anyone know why she always overheats?

Questions. Questions.

Why is she so hot and angry? 

Is it because of us?

What have we done?

Is there a reason why the climate and lands are being burned? 

Questions. Questions.

So many questions about mother sun’s heat but no questions to how and why she is burning and crying for everyone she sees. 

She wants to stop so badly but she can’t because it’s too much. 

Can someone please help her? 

Is it too late? 

Maybe. Yes. No.

“Music is She, She is Music” read the yellow blue and purple sign that hung over the Guthrie Green stage. On the same stage, seven incredibly talented female musical artists performed the night away, each offering their own unique experience.  MisFest 2019 held a wide variety of talent. With everything from Bambi, a rapper with strong messages and an even stronger voice, to artist KT Tunstall, an internationally known scottish singer-songwriter, Saturday the 14th was truly one of the best nights to be at the Guthrie Green.
              
The day started bright and young in the late afternoon, as volunteers ran back and forth across the Guthrie Green in the miserable sun, setting up for the big show. Each musician eagerly awaited her chance to show what type of show she could perform.  The festival opened with *Shoulda Been Blonde*, an all-girl rock band that kicked things off with a unique cover of “The Greatest Show”. As the night went on and the sun got lower, the music seemed to get progressively more contemporary. Contenders for winning this battle of contemporary-ness include *Smoochie Wallus*, a quintet/classic rock band that mixes the comforting sound of strings and the expressive strum of guitars; *Bambi*, a studio rapper who made her place producing music in mass quantities in order to deliver social messages to the public; and *Good Villains*,  a band representing the underground genre of doom-pop, a dark storyteller rock subgenre.

KT Tunstall brought the show to a conclusion with her mini concert that felt more like a celebration sprinkled with unsubtle comedy. Tunstall showered her audience with her beautifully hilarious anecdotes about her experiences coming to terms with the fact that she is famous in between her one-woman-does-all performances of songs that will remind you that you certainly know KT Tunstall’s music, even if you haven’t heard her name. She finished with a heartfelt appreciation of the people of Tulsa and how great it is to just love each other; nothing else could have been more fitting to conclude such a festival, and nothing else was more deserving of such a conclusion than the Music is She Festival.

To kick off the new 2019-2020 school year, the newspaper decided to write some poetry and short stories! Three minutes were given to each person to write something up and share it at our first meeting on August 30th, 2019. This is a small selection of the whimsical, joyful, conscious, and saddened results!

---

**A haiku** *by Nathaniel Ijams*

With just one year’s time

What can one do to be free

Me, my friends, Hong Kong

---

**Website**

I can’t stop thinking about how I volunteered to help run a website. I lay in bed each night shivering, fearing the newspaper elders. One day Nate will graduate, and I’m not sure what wild intellectually confusing substance of a website will be left for me to mismanage.

---

*Inspired by the Amazon Fires and Climate Change*

Fire blazing up bark

Everything left dark

Stop eating cows


---

The night is young,

Full of dazzling stars,

But no one to look with from afar.

The cold wind fells very lonely,

Kind of like a sad tone in an old, cold poem.

---

**Mac ‘an Cheese** *by Ian Benway*

I had three minutes to write this poem

So this was just from the top of my head.

But whether it’s good or whether it’s bad

I’d rather be making mac & cheese instead

---

Roses are red

Violets are blue

I’m illeterate

And so are you 

<br>

But together we’ll change

And learn how to do

Things a normal kid can

At least, I hope to

<br>

With our education

We can change the world

So let’s get some learnin’

Let’s give it a whirl


---

Voices echo throughout the darkened structures, the hall so vacant of light that the shadows practically leap out to eat the man who stands within. Some audible phrases reach out to him, “help me!” cries the whispered tone.

---

It was raining out

Blurring my concentration

I don’t miss the sun

When the soul of Earth ignited fire,

The heavens faintly spoke,

With a furtive background choir,

*Let there be Diet Coke.*

<br>

In that instant all was rid

Of disingenuous flame,

And a farewell I had bid

To a life bar aspartame.

<br>

Upon this notion I'd construed

A beauty through refraction,

But its veracity I renewed

Upon my satisfaction.

<br>

For when I came across my love

Constrained within the plastic,

It took a force from up above

To assuage the craze so drastic!

<br>

Upon the cap that I had clenched,

While breaking its fixation,

I found myself---my soul---yet drenched

With russet-brown elation.

<br>

The bottle ceased not rapid fizzing,

As it sat in condensation,

So I found my heart still whizzing,

Mind quicker than its palpitation.

<br>

Upon a taste my lips felt numb,

Entangled in its presence,

And I, with couth, had thus become

A man of effervescence.

<br>

Addiction is a word of slander,

For I can stop at will,

But, to me, my mouth may pander

For a quick refill.

<br>

And though I find my heart besotted

With caffeine and strife,

I still permit some time allotted

For Coca-Cola Life.

<br>

So thus my heart may wander

From the drink that I have known,

But my dreams, of which I seem to squander,

Will employ Diet Coke alone.

<br>

The throne of cans I sit atop

Where, in deep reflection,

I often find it hard to stop

This adamant affection.

<br>

I only fear a day convening

My love within a cloak,

For all my life will lose its meaning

Without my Diet Coke.

The world is on fire,

I'm told to sit quieter—

Don't talk back,

"We've got this under control."

You ignore me,

Berate me for crying,

Tell me to grow up,

Then treat me like a child.

The world is on fire,

It's time for us to stand up,

You laugh and tell me I should shut up,

My rally sign won't bring any change,

I can't do anything that would really change the game,

So shut up,

Sit quiet,

Watch the city burn to the ground.

"It's big corporations that need to change,"

But little things add up,

And my voice may be small but I won't shut up,

I'll yell and I'll paint the picture of our home crumbling down,

And when people stand with me,

Our voices grow loud.

You can't ignore us,

While we sink and we drown,

Earth is in trouble,

Which includes you and me.

The world is on fire,

I'm told to sit quieter—

Don't talk back,

"We've got this under control."

You ignore me,

Berate me for crying,

Tell me to grow up,

Then treat me like a child.

The world is on fire,

You know this is one of those things that you’re not supposed to talk about. The kinda things considered “taboo” amongst those who know about it, but this has been aching at me for months now, living in the deep crevices of my mind, never really fading from my active thought. So here I am, breaking all kinds of taboos.
My family is from Northern Minnesota, and every year my parents and I go up north to hang out with my Mom’s side of the family, and every year I am bored out of my god damn mind for three weeks. The side of the state they live on is desolate, quiet, and almost completely forested. Last summer I found myself with my cousin Michael. He and I had been close ever since I was younger, and whenever I came up there we spent most of our time together. This year was no different. He was just as bored as I was, and one day we were sitting together, watching some game show I can’t remember the name of, when he turned to me and asked:

“Hey, have you ever been in those woods around the place?” I turned to him, my right eyebrow cocked in a questioning expression.

“What?” I asked at first, not paying attention to what he had said. He repeated himself,

“Have ya ever been in the woods ‘round here? Like the ones outback?” I leaned back into the cushion of the couch and thought for a moment. Surprisingly, in all my years of living, I had never been in the woods, just at the edge of the property. I shrugged as I looked back at him, and that sufficed as an answer to him. He responded by standing up and stretching before looking down at me.

“Do you want to?”

Curiosity took hold of me, and I stood up with some eagerness. Soon, we found ourselves out in the backyard walking towards the green woods that expanded across the horizon, never seeming to stop. The sun beating down on us directly overhead, the bugs buzzing and nipping at our skin. As we grew closer to the forest's edge, I stopped, something came over me, and I just felt wrong. I stared deep into the woods at a tree that seemed off to me in some way; I was entranced by the structure, maybe it was the way it bent in some places, the way the branches hung, maybe it was the color.

“What’s up?” Michael’s words brought me back to reality, and I turned towards him, breaking my gaze from the tree in the process.

“Huh? Yeah yeah, I’m fine, let’s keep going.” With that, we continued on downhill towards the edge of the forest. When we reached it, I looked up past Michael towards where I saw the tree, only to not be able to find it. I shrugged it off at the time, not thinking much of it.
The contrast between the green field and the darkened woods was staggering, breathtaking almost. The trees cast shadows that loomed over the forest floor, the branches letting in small streams of light that lit up the ground like a Christmas tree. Michael and I began to walk through it all, being completely absorbed at the serene beauty of the place.
We walked for a few moments before we spotted an old, rusted out frame of what I could only guess was at one point a car. The rust-red coloration, contrasting the patch of green grass on which it sat, broke through the vines, which wrapped themselves around the frame like snakes constricting prey. Some of the vines seemed to take on the rusted coloration of what remained of the metal. Michael, in his infinite wisdom, climbed onto the roof and stood tall and proud.

“This place is awesome!” he exclaimed, then proceeded to scream at the top of his lungs, the sound echoing throughout the forest before he climbed back down.
We continued to walk, making jokes to each other while wondering to ourselves how far the woods went. We hopped over a small stream before finding a clearing, a hill in the center of it with a dead tree at its peak. Michael ran ahead of me, beginning to go up the hill at a quick pace before stopping suddenly and standing cold. I stopped and stared up at him, wondering what made him stop, and followed him up the hill.
I stopped dead in my tracks as I looked out at the horizon; the sky was streaked with red and the sun more than halfway down. I suddenly scrambled to pull out my phone and check the time; the digital clock slowly blinked as I stared directly at the number 8:27. Michael looked at me pointing down at his watch, it was the same time.

“No way…” I muttered to myself.

“We only left at, what, around fifteen till two right?” Michael asked with a hint of worry in his voice. I nodded. There was no way we could have been out that long—at most we had only been out for around thirty to forty-five minutes. Michael shook his head before looking away. He stopped again and began the color drained from his face, and I could hear his breathing increase. After getting him to calm down, he pointed in the direction in which we came. When I turned my eyes went wide with shock and horror.

The woods didn’t end.

It was as if we were surrounded by an ocean of foliage and wood that stretched for miles on end, we couldn’t even see the house from here. Suddenly a feeling swept over me, a feeling of unease like we were being watched. I searched around for what could be the cause of it and my eyes locked with an object on the edge of the tree line to our left. The strange tree, only this time it was out in the open, and I could see why it was different from the others.

Its bark was smooth.

No, no, it wasn’t even bark, it was smooth and glistened in the sun. It was skin. And I realized there had been only two outwardly stretching limbs and no leaves.

As these realizations came to me, my eyes widened with horror as I turned to Michael and told him to run. Not long after I was already near the treeline, adrenaline pumping, head pounding, and I refused to stop.
I turned to see if Michael was behind me, and in that split second, I saw what that tree was. A blur of a slender frame towering almost twenty feet in the air, the light of the setting sun glistening off of its skin as it reached with an outstretched limb. It was running, too. And fast. Michael and I ran even harder than before, the heavy crunches growing closer and closer behind us. My head was pounding even more; as if someone took a jackhammer to my skull, the pain was overpowering even with the adrenaline coursing through my veins.
I wasn’t paying attention and nearly ran into the rusted out car, barely dodging it and continuing forward. I could hear Michael telling me not to stop, and as soon as the words left his mouth, I heard the crunching and snapping of metal. I looked back for a moment to see the damn monstrosity lifting its foot from the remains of the car. It can’t be much farther now, I thought.
It was gaining on us, but we weren’t letting up. Michael picked up the pace and hopped over the creek, and I hopped over myself. Right as my feet touched the ground I heard the loudest snap I had ever heard in my life. I turned to my right just in time to see a tree crash down nearly half an inch away from me. It’s long slender fingers that looked like branches wrapped around the base of the trunk.
Michael screamed again in front of me, and when I looked forward I saw him reaching the dense forest edge he nearly leapt through it. As he passed through two trees close together, it was like he just disappeared. Before I could think much of it, the creature let out a deafening bellow, like a slowed down air ride siren. I could hear the trees being hit to my left, and with every ounce of my being, I leapt through the two trees and found myself falling face-first into the field. I crawled for dear life to where Michael was standing and turned back to see the creature's outstretched arm grab hold of the edge of a branch.
Slowly, its arm withdrew back into the dark of the forest, but we couldn’t hear it walking away.
Michael helped me to my feet, checking the time on his watch.

“2:15,” he whispered, as the sweat glistened on his forehead in the afternoon sun.

For several days after that, Michael and I barely left the house. I couldn’t even sleep—all I did was look out the window towards the woods in a feeble attempt to make myself feel safer. Some nights I’d see the trees sway, and I’d break into a cold sweat. Others, I’d hear nothing at all, which made me even more unnerved.


Near the final days of my stay in Minnesota, my family had a barbeque out front. I was out eating with Michael telling him about school or something when my grandfather approached us.

“Did you boys go into those damned backwoods?” he asked in the sternest voice I’d ever heard the man use. He was a sweet, soft-spoken man, so this caught us off guard.
When Michael and I asked what he meant, he asked again, "did you, or did you not?” Michael turned to me, a look of concern on his face, and we turned back and nodded slowly to Grandpa. “God damn it boys…” he began, rubbing his brow softly, “don’t speak of what you saw out there, and, for God’s sake, never go back.” And with that, he went back to socializing with the rest of the family.
To be fair, he didn’t even need to tell us, Michael and I were scared shitless just being outside. And before I knew it, it was the end of my trip, and I was on my way home. Michael and I swore to never speak of it again, but I just couldn’t get it out of my head. What was with the forest? What about the time? Just what the hell was that *thing*? I’m terrified of going back, but a part of me wants to know.
Fall is coming, the leaves are falling. Strangely enough, though, there is this one tree near my neighbor's yard that’s already bare. And I always find myself looking at it at dusk.

This past week they hosted a canned food drive. In alliance with their mission, its purpose was to restock the food pantry. These items are used as groceries then given to Booker T. families as packages for the weekend or long school breaks: Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring break. Each is composed of four vegetables, four proteins, three grains, and two fruits for the use of one person. For example, if there is a family of four, then each individual would receive a box.

On Friday, during activity period, they were to begin a new program in which students will be set up in an assembly line and fill bags with necessary food items. This is similar to the Backpack Program organized by the Food Bank where students take home nutritious foods in their backpack for the weekend. Hartshorne believes club membership has grown because students are now able to see the physical items that will be distributed to classmates, classmates that remain anonymous to them, but, nevertheless,  they will have left a lasting impact. She continues to say that making it a “student to student service” helps create the desire to help a fellow classmate in the Booker T. Washington community.

At the end of our interview, I asked Anna whether there was ever an ultimate goal she wanted to achieve with the club by the time of graduation; in response, she replied, “with the satisfaction in knowing that Hornets Against Hunger will continue once I leave… ultimately, that was the goal for me: to create something that, when I left, it didn’t matter that I was going to be gone, it was going to be able to stand on its own, and I think we have gotten to that point, which is really cool.”

### Around the World

**Bolivia**'s president, Evo Morales, resigned from his position. At the same time, the Vice-President, leaders of both legislative bodies, and others left office, leaving the country effectively leaderless for many days. Now, the leader accused of corruption has said he is willing to return to power to restore order.

There was a time when I was lying in my bed, half an hour to midnight. The clock was ticking softly but loudly. It was the only thing I could hear, repeating slowly. I was tucked in with a very warm black blanket. It was like it was hugging me, it was like it cared for me. I started to think about myself and others around me. How they treated me, how they matter to me, how I shouldn’t care for them. I then started to realize the truth in people, especially “friends”, but importantly my own father. How cold and empathetic he can be sometimes. I do this every time I feel angry or upset. I start to overthink and wonder why? Why am even thinking about these sad thoughts? Why do they even matter to me? Why are there tears dripping down my face? Why do I feel like I’m alone, even though I have “friends?” These thoughts are too cold for me.

Just last month, we got to talk with Kelanni Edwards, a junior at Booker. T Washington, about the new club she recently started: Poetry Club. Edwards says she had the idea at the beginning of the year but struggled to find a sponsor and create a curriculum. After Mr. Thater took on the position of sponsoring the club, Poetry Club was finally able to have their first meeting on Friday, November 22nd, during activity period. During this meeting, they started decorating poetry journals with the intent to add to them during each meeting.

When asked what inspired her to create this club, Edwards responded with, “I wanted to provide an outlet for Booker T. students who liked poetry but didn’t really know what to do with it.” Edwards says she found poetry in 8th grade when she was struggling. Writing her first poem gave her a sense of relief; making her feel better. “My main goal is to allow them that outlet of expression, even if they just come in and write down their feelings and feel better walking out,” says Edwards. She encourages anyone with interest to come and check it out!

For several months now, the #TeamTrees fundraiser has been happening on YouTube. If you haven’t heard of it already, YouTubers Mr. Beast and Mark Rober partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to start the initiative to raise 20 million dollars to plant 20 million trees by 2020. At this point, just over 17 million dollars donated, so that means there’s only three million dollars left to reach the goal by January! Thousands of other creators have made videos promoting and joining what is now the largest YouTube collaboration ever. There’s still time to donate if you can, and every dollar helps plant a tree somewhere that needs it. The link will be on the newspaper website or can be found by just googling Team Trees.

To do or not to do - that is the question:

Hugo takes the templates in layouts, the content in content, the files in static, and the variables in config.yaml and generates a full static website.

### Layouts
*Below are some common sections within layout files. I have described what they do.*
```
{{ define "header"}}
  {{- partial "_shared/navbar.html" . -}}`
{{ end }}
```
Hugo uses {{ }} to enclose its "code". It provides an easy, configurable way to include outside content inside the page.

{{ define _____ }} creates an HTML section. With Hugo, it also pulls in the content from the header.html template.
{{ end }} ends a section, whether HTML or an IF statement or otherwise.

{{- partial _____ -}} essentially "pulls" another file (a partial) into the page as a section. In the above example, "navbar.html" is being pulled in. This is located in 'layouts/'. See navbar.html for what it does.

So, this section first adds the header.html file then additionally adds the navbar.html file.

### JS
JS files are defined and added to each page in <root>/layouts/partials/_shared/js.html and fast-darkmode.html. We use the following JS files, all located within <root>/static/js/:
- fast-darkmode.html:
- head.html:
  - **darkreader.js**: Dark Reader script which enables the ability to switch colours to be in dark mode.
  - **fast-darkmode.js**: defines the function (darkmode_starting_up()) which checks local storage to see if a previous light/dark setting has been stored already.
  - **`In-line script for checking dark mode settings`**: defines the function (darkmode_starting_up()) which checks local storage to see if a previous light/dark setting has been stored already.
  - **`<script async="async" type="text/javascript">darkmode_starting_up();</script>`**: runs the darkmode_starting_up() function, which enables or disables Dark Mode based on the result of local storage query.

**Helping Hornets**

_*Helping Hornets is a student-based advice column that provides help to students who may need it. It is completely anonymous and your questions will not be shared with anyone outside of Newspaper Club. You can find submission boxes in the library, Mrs. Waugh&#8217;s room, and Mrs. Walker&#8217;s room. _

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">How can I be cool ?</span>_

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Depends on what you view as “cool”. You might view cool as not caring about anything and going with the flow, You might view cool as being dark and mysterious, or you might view cool as being nice, open, and friendly. If you’re happy with who you are now then there’s no need to change that. There are no specific factors to being cool other than being confident with who you are. </span>

&nbsp;

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">I’m feeling sad and I don’t know what to do about it can you guys help me?</span>_

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Sadness is a normal part of life and is an emotion we have all dealt with. If this feeling of sadness is persistent and overwhelming, then it would be a good idea to seek professional help. Seeking help may sound scary but you’ll be glad you did it in the long run. If there are things that make you feel better, do them. Talk to friends, engage in your hobbies, but most importantly seek help if your sadness starts holding you back. </span>

&nbsp;

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">I am feeling depressed and I don’t know what to do.</span>_

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Depression is a serious thing that can be treated. Know that help is always available. Here at school we have a Licensed Professional Counselor in room 305 who can help you figure out what&#8217;s going on. It&#8217;s important to reach out for help even if you’re feeling helpless. You can also try to find something to occupy your mind with like writing, playing with a pet, etc. Know that you are not alone, and there are people who can and want to help you. If you would like to talk to a peer, you could contact someone in newspaper club. You can contact us through Instagram @btw_news or email: </span>[<span style="font-weight: 400;">bookertnews@gmail.com</span>](mailto:bookertnews@gmail.com)

<span style="font-weight: 400;">1 800 273 8255 &#8211; this is the national suicide hotline available 24/7. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">918 744 4800- this number is a crisis line you can dial if you are in need of immediate help</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">918 394 2256-  this number directs you to the Calm Center here in Tulsa that provides you with immediate help in time of crisis. </span>

&nbsp;

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">How do you find the right people to be friends with, so how do you find your new friend group as a freshman?</span>_

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Freshman year can be a rough and confusing time for anyone. Finding new friends isn’t always an easy thing. Making friends takes time and effort, especially making good friends. You don’t necessarily have to build a whole group of friends immediately, you can start by just making one or two friends. If you enjoy someone&#8217;s company, then you should pursue that friendship. Don’t be afraid of someone thinking you’re annoying for trying to pursue a friendship (they most likely don’t). If you had a friend group in middle school, reflect on how you made those friends and put those skills to work. There are other people out there in your same position, everyone&#8217;s just trying to find their place. You aren’t alone no matter how much it may seem that way. </span>

&nbsp;

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">I need help with procrastination. Can you guys help me?</span>_

&nbsp;

<span style="font-weight: 400;">I think we’re all guilty of procrastination more than we care to admit. No one really wants to spend time doing work now when you could do it later, but eventually later will be now. You have to remember that if you complete your work on time you won&#8217;t have to go through the stress of it all piling up on you last minute. Doing work last minute also means it may not really reflect your best abilities and you could get a lower grade on it. To avoid procrastination you should get rid of distractions like electronics, and think about all the stress you won&#8217;t be going through later. </span>

&nbsp;

_<span style="font-weight: 400;">How do you kiss a girl well- Al Kaholic </span>_

 <span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Bring her Hershey&#8217;s kisses instead. </span>

  Quentin Williams is a freshman here at the Hornet Hive. If his name rings a bell, you probably know him as the amazing Freshman Board Vice President. Quentin works very actively to make sure that his fellow freshman classmates have a strong and respectable voice in Student Council. While talking with Quentin, he continued to put emphasis on his love for his school.
</p>


&nbsp;

When asked what his favorite part about our school is, he says:

<p dir="ltr">
      <em>“That’s a very hard question. I think if I had to choose one thing I would say the school spirit. This school has so much love for each other, and I don’t think you can find that anywhere else. I feel very grateful to be among all of these people every single day of my life. I feel even more grateful that I get to make sure that every one of them have an equal voice at this school.”</em>
</p>

<p dir="ltr">
      You can also find Quentin sprinting on the track team as well as being a member of the Speech and Debate team.

  Quentin Williams is a freshman here at the Hornet Hive. If his name rings a bell, you probably know him as the amazing Freshman Board Vice President. Quentin works very actively to make sure that his fellow freshman classmates have a strong and respectable voice in Student Council. While talking with Quentin, he continued to put emphasis on his love for his school.
</p>


&nbsp;

When asked what his favorite part about our school is, he says:

<p dir="ltr">
      <em>“That’s a very hard question. I think if I had to choose one thing I would say the school spirit. This school has so much love for each other, and I don’t think you can find that anywhere else. I feel very grateful to be among all of these people every single day of my life. I feel even more grateful that I get to make sure that every one of them have an equal voice at this school.”</em>
</p>

      You can also find Quentin sprinting on the track team as well as being a member of the Speech and Debate team.
