Things To Do In the Winter

Write a letter to someone you love/appreciate.

Read a great book. Keep yourself occupied during snow days with a story that excites you.

Bake something. This is the perfect season to stay inside and bake cookies or some other delicious treat. Don’t forget to decorate your product!

Movie marathon. Bring out all those old and new movies and just relax.

Go watch the Nutcracker. This is a classic show to see, some families find this to be their most important tradition.

Wrap yourself in gift paper. Be silly and create the strangest shaped present.


Megan Downer

Senior Megan Downer has been in the Blue and Gold since her freshman year and is now the newspaper’s Editor-In-Chief. Before coming to Malden High, she went to Ferryway for middle school. When Megan has any free time she likes to motivate herself to either read or write. Writing for her is an “outlet for raw emotions” which is what motivates her to pick up some paper and a pen and let the words flow. Megan’s other hobbies include hiking and being outside. She also enjoys watching shows such as Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill. She is part of Malden High’s varsity field hockey team as lucky number 7. If she could only eat one meal for the rest of her life it would “probably [be] some good chicken, mac and cheese and a biscuit.” and if she had to wear only one color for the rest of her life, she would choose maroon or black because it “goes with everything.” After high school, her goals are to finish college, become a successful writer and to go into a career that helps others.
