Well, for one thing, it's the coolest high school newspaper in all the land. Watch our video and find out more.
Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

If I have trash, I just leave it in my car and don’t take it with me. So my car ends up filling up with garbage. I also change a lot in my car, so I have a whole “back seat closet.” I find it useful if I’m running late and don’t have time to stop at home; I just grab something from the back. This makes me less likely to want to clean it as well. I still have my birthday basket from early January in the trunk because I am too lazy to carry it inside. I tend to just move the mess around.
People who ride in my car a lot are used to the mess and just ignore it. I just leave it at their feet. If I’m driving someone I don’t normally drive, I throw all the mess in the backseat and trunk. People are often shocked and ask how it gets this messy. “It’s just easier to leave the mess,” I reply. If I just ignore it, the people I’m driving often do the same.

I have discovered I like driving barefoot. I find that it is easier to drive with no shoes on, so whenever I get in my car, whatever shoes I have on — heels, boots, and especially sandals — I just take them off and toss them over my right shoulder. When I get ready for school, and I know what pair of shoes I want to wear, there is a good chance they’re in my car. I clear them out maybe once a month or whenever my parents yell at me to clean up my car.

I wanted to see if I could get the pack rat avatar from neopets in real life.
