More than a dream: I have found my calling

More than a dream: I have found my calling

This past summer, before I moved to Macon with my mom and brother, I was sitting inside a clinic in Paseo Colón, Costa Rica. I was accompanying my father while he examined patient after patient.  Then, I saw a woman walk into the clinic. She had a mass on her stomach that looked like a pelvic tu...

Imagine Being a Florida Gator Fan in Georgia…

Anna Caroline Hutchinson, Gazebo Staff Writer

Imagine being the only person dressed up at a non-costume party. That’s kind of how most days during college football season are for me. This is because when most people wear red and black, I wear orange and blue. Gator blue that is.  I became a Florida fan at the young age of five. Most of this wa...

 In seventh grade, I was a new student at Stratford and placed in Algebra 1.  It was the highest math class at the time, and I had not learned quite everything I was supposed to learn at my previous school.  Because of that, and the fact that I was a new student having to adjust a new envir...

Two years ago,  Cal Whitworth, a 2018 Stratford graduate, came up to me wondering if I wanted some community service hours. I desperately needed a few hours, so I said yes. What I didn’t know then is that I had just gotten myself into one of the best experiences I’ve ever been a part of.   For...

At just 7 years old, I was almost a movie star.  I baffled my parents when I was younger because I didn’t like to play baseball, golf, or hunt like my brother and my cousins. Desperately trying to find anything for me to do in my free time, my mom went online and discovered The Academy of the ...

Have you ever seen a real-life Anna from the movie “Frozen”? That’s me. Ever since I was born on August 25, 2004, I have had a blonde strand of hair in contrast to the rest of my dark brown hair. This “freak” streak is considered my birthmark. An uncommon mark has its perks. I always h...

Happiest when I am wetting a hook somewhere

Happiest when I am wetting a hook somewhere

I thoroughly enjoy fishing.  My favorite type is bass fishing because you have to be very precise and you can't just throw a bait and catch one. But when you catch one you also get to enjoy a very fun fight with the fish.  When you catch other freshwater fish such as bream or crappie, you can reel them in...

China was the first country infected by the coronavirus and the situation is getting tougher. When I heard this news, I was really worried about my parents, and I called them every day because they live in Beijing, China. Although the first city infected was Wuhan, the spreading speed was fast since it t...

My love for traveling began back in 2016 when I went on my first cruise with my dad and my brother. Before then, I had been on a few out-of-state trips. I had been to Las Vegas, Washington D.C., and New York.  But when I went on my first cruise I realized my dream is to travel the world one day. ...
