Whatever you do, don’t settle

By Abigail Cianciolo Editor-in-Chief  Recently, I’ve been stopping myself to think. Thinking about high school, about friends, about life. And as I am now days away from graduating, everything I have known the last four years will begin to change, and I will have to take the lessons my time at WA has given me and bring them to the “real world.” The other morning I had a meeting with John Rogers, DECA advisor, well-known business teacher, polo shirt enthusiast, and most importantly a person that has become a close friend of mine. This was our final meeting to talk…

We’re going to be okay

By Ethan Walshe Editorial-in-Chief I suppose I’m supposed to be overjoyed right now. I say this because I am finally done with high school, finally done with four formative years of my life. I am graduating. I am leaving the nest and moving on into what everyone else calls “real world” and the “real world” is full of its own wonders, the largest of which is of course independence. Of course, the freedoms that accompany this new independence are beyond desirable, from making my own decisions, to handling my own money, to no longer being under the constant vigilance of…

Only time will tell what the future holds

By Jocelyn Cote Graphic Designer In freshman year, I saw My Chemical Romance play a concert in Boston. Upon leaving the show, I had an overwhelming urge to tell everyone about my experience – to share my excitement, my opinions, and the story of the night’s events. This is the night when I knew I wanted to get involved in journalism. Now, over three years later, my time with the Ghostwriter is coming to a close. Where has the time gone? However, I couldn’t have asked for a better three years writing for this publication. I have learned so many…

Listen to the clichés

By Kyle Auger Editor-in-Chief  While laying in a pile of clothes I need to pack for the class of 2014’s Disney trip, I find myself reminiscing on my years at Westford  Academy. The first things I remember is the summer before my freshman year; I was a confusing mix of scared and excited. For some reason, when people learn that you are entering high school each and every person seems eager to share their own experiences and advice towards the big change. I still remember my frustration after hearing four aunts and three grandparents reiterating the same cliches like “get…

A broken system

A view from inside the detention room.

By Tim DeLouchrey Sports Liasion  At 2:00 on a typical Wednesday afternoon, I did not proceed to the senior parking lot. I was, instead, on my way to the detention room. I had been tardy to school often during the third term, and it had resulted in two office detentions. To simplify the situation, I had to sit in a room for an hour because my ride to school had been running late. I do not drive myself, nor do I take the bus, so it is typically out of my hands whether I get to school on time or…
