A lil’ about me

The name’s Sydney An Fern Elizabeth Rotigel-Finegan, the game’s… yet to be determined. Hey, we might just determine it on this very blog, which I intend to fill with whatever I happen to be passionate about in the moment I press ‘post’. Expect official GLHS Reflection articles, rambly writings, poetic musings, class-time doodles, and perhaps the occasional mandatory assignment (I am in high school, after all).

As a recent addition to the ranks of GLHS Reflection student reporters, I’ve delighted in earning my first (and definitely not last) by lines! Currently I write mostly feature and opinion articles (often regarding art, politics, and social issues-surprise, surprise), but I’m not afraid to branch out in the coming cycles.

In which I am silenced by the Confucian Patriarchy (a prose poem I wrote in lieu of AP World notes)

I elected to be the half-moon face of Empress Wu’s chapstick. The Small Cottage had less power and no generator, so the scholars determined that democracy was okay there. A heat wave reduced my waxy pore-craters to a waning crescent, while intellectual blue stockings rippled over goosebumped grates, and my yeast-painted lips swelled in the … Continue reading In which I am silenced by the Confucian Patriarchy (a prose poem I wrote in lieu of AP World notes)
