Last Sunday, I went to Andy’s to get me some custard, and approximately ten seconds into me eating my BootDaddy Concrete, my stomach started to growl. I went from happy to sad as I started to reconsider whether going to Andy’s...

Embrace the discomfort

Danielle Kurensky, Opinions Editor

May 23, 2019

This is my last piece for the New Trier News and that fact hasn’t fully hit me yet. I keep saying that because it’s been colder and it doesn’t feel like the end of the year, and while there is some validity to this statement,...

Four years of (mostly) firsts

Darcie Kim, Features Editor

May 23, 2019

For me, as it was for most people, high school was filled with a variety of firsts. I had my first kiss, a sloppy and awkward amalgamation of lips and saliva that I couldn’t wait to tell my friends all about. I went to my...

March 8, 2019

On my 16th birthday, far off into the horizon, I could just begin to hear the sound of my long-desired freedom ringing in the form of a 3.37” x 2.13” card. The DMV apparently did not hear such a melody. A dramatic retelling?...

How to talk about mental health

Danielle Kurensky, Opinion Editor

March 8, 2019

I have anxiety. While this might not be a big deal to some, this fact is something I have wrestled with for the past five years and for a while I wouldn’t talk about my anxiety with people outside of my family. Anyone who...

Why you gotta be so mean?

Ezra Wallach, Opinions Editor

December 7, 2018

The annual quad-header between New Trier and Loyola took place last Sunday, and, needless to say, things got contentious. The quad is like New Trier’s version of Wilmette’s Friday Night Skate or the right side of Perry’s...
