Changing your goals is okay

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Up until last year, I planned to be a STEM major. To be exact, I wanted to study astrophysics. As a child, it was my dream, my greatest pursuit, an aspiration that I simply couldn’t tie down. It amazed me to no end that you could look up, see so much, and be able to […]

Goodbye, Mason

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer To say that my time at MHS has been a transformational one would be an understatement. Over the course of two short years, I have had the chance to be able to do so many things that I would never have thought possible even just two years ago, especially as a sophomore. I have laughed, […]

Senioritis has its perks

Ria Parikh | Staff Writer I regret to inform you that I have been inflicted with Senioritis. When I first heard of it in 8th grade, I turned my nose up, smirked, and swore that that would never happen to me. Well, here we are, four years later.  Obviously, Senioritis has its negatives, which was the stuff I heard about […]

Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Score: 95% Story/Characters: It is almost impossible to talk about this movie without mentioning the absolutely immense cast that it carries with it during its three hour runtime. Almost every character from past Marvel films is here, including some that you may not even remember existed until now. The original six avengers take the spotlight […]

Review: ‘Us’

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Score: 85% After directing the wildly successful Get Out, Jordan Peele’s Us is a stunning thriller which paints a portrait of haunting parallels. Establishing itself in dark symbolism and playing off of an overarching feeling of uncanny, Us works to create not simply a suspenseful film, but one which raises questions about the world around […]

It starts with our culture

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Mason has a serious problem, and it isn’t the fault of the administration or our teachers. It’s a culture problem.  As I talk to people in grades both above and below me, I constantly hear things about how stressed they are because their “parents are going to kill them if they get a bad grade.” […]

Staff Editorial: Planned parenthood provides crucial healthcare

Recently, the state of Ohio decided to make some budget cuts. They cut out all the usual stuff — overpaid politicians, unused funding. Normal, right? Well, not exactly. What happened instead was that Planned Parenthood was completely defunded.  And if you’re opposed to abortion then that’s great, right?  Most would say so, but that’s simply not the case: Planned Parenthood […]

More shades to come

Ria Parikh | Staff Writer A couple years ago, I was at the MAC store, and I asked the employee for a bronzer. She took a look at my face, paused, and said, “I’m not sure if we have any that’ll work for you. Sorry.” On that particular day, she happened to be right. I walked around the store, tested […]

Staff Editorial: Film does feminism wrong

Feminism is hard. It’s had a bit of a rough time with branding. But most of all, it’s just super complicated. Everyone has their own idea of what’s right, what’s “true” feminism. The idea of feminism has evolved over time, from first legal, then economic, then social issues taking the forefront of each generation.  So what makes a character feminist? […]

Opinion: Girls, support girls

Anusha Vadlamani | Staff Writer I’ve spent a lot of time at Mason High School. Enough time to memorize when each class starts and when each one ends. Enough time to realize that the PA system sometimes interrupts class during the most inopportune times. Way too much time realizing my locker is never going to open correctly on the first […]
