In the past four years, I’ve taken 35 different classes, spent approximately 776 days in school and cried upwards of 100,000 tears over due dates, boys and the inevitable friendship drama.

Upon watching the trailer for Midnight Sun, the correct assumption to make is that the movie is merely another one of the countless teen romance movies.

Flashback to the Wahlert Homecoming skits in 2011. There’s a kid lying across a piano, dressed in a purple tux, impersonating Justin Bieber.

      The senior editors of the Gleaner have been through a lot at Wahlert and have learned many lessons along the way.
