As we get older, we tend to stay away from family to prevent the new “hip” word called embarrassment. As for me, well I rarely hang out with friends throughout the summer because it’s my chance to see my family. My mom and my step dad work night shifts five out of the seven days a week and my au...

Spring break is near and I’m sure everyone is eager as can be about it. Getting out of school, getting out of this crazy Indiana weather, and getting to go to some place warm I’m sure, but me, on the other hand, I’m going somewhere where the weather is even colder than it is here in good ole In...
