Extreme Makeover: Shoreline Edition

A year and a half of heated public debate came to a close last month as the city council put Shoreline’s potential new facelift into law.

Throughout the process of adopting the new ordinances, Shoreline’s citizens have turned out in droves at any opportunity for public comment regarding the NE 185 St. light rail station.

Earth Week comes to SCC

Teachers and students are working together to bring Earth Week to Shoreline this year. A committee has been meeting since mid-March to generate ideas and organize a week long series of events. The week’s events will follow the theme “ethics of place,” focusing on the history and the current state of Shoreline’s ecosystems.

Death by dress size: saving ourselves from toxic beauty with the body positivity movement

When I was in middle school, I tried to kill myself.

I failed, thank goodness. It hurt too much and I couldn’t make my fingers dig the razor in any deeper. I was stuck wearing Band-Aids and long sleeves for a week. The wounds left me even more embarrassed about my body, which didn’t help anything since embarrassment about my body was largely what drove me to slit my wrists in the first place.

Tuesdays are categorically the worst day of the week

Monday gets all the hate. Part of me wants to chalk this up to Garfield’s propaganda, but I know that’s just part of a larger, more systemic problem. You see it everywhere: endless memes and casual comments about how difficult Monday is, comments made by people who don’t understand the harm they’re causing.

While we all watch Monday with a magnifying glass, pointing out its flaws and dreading its arrival, another day wreaks silent havoc. Everyone’s so focused on Monday we turn around and bloody ourselves blindly tripping on Tuesday.
