    Dancers Know All the Right Steps

    Middle school dances. Were they awkward, or is that just me? Some kids actually took a limo to our school’s big eighth grade dance. A photographer took prom-like photos, a quick Polaroid memento.

    An Idol Is Chosen

    This year’s PC Idol was, surprisingly, really entertaining. Never having attended any previous shows, I went into the event with pretty low expectations, but by the end I was rooting singers on and waiting for the crowning of the winner.
