The student news site of Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park, MN


Every day before first period begins, I power off my phone completely and place it in my locker. While many of my friends mock this habit, I find no use for my phone throughout the school day and shudder at the idea of it ringing in the middle of class. While some may assume that this would limit or completely eliminate possible distractions, that is far from the truth. My laptop gives me access to almost all the websites I would visit on my phone, drawing my attention away from class and into my screen. Instagram is by far the most addictive of these sites. And while I enjoy scrolling through photos of my friends, videos of food are my most favorite pastime.  Due to a glorious algorithm, the site loads an abundance of these videos on my explore page, leaving me occupied for hours.
