The half day before spring or fall break, school hallways can seem empty. At St. George’s, this can be explained by the large number of students who have left to enjoy their break at the beach.

In the beginning seniors, now alumni, Harrison Schutt and John Kutteh built a hoop house, and it was good. The sun shone. The birds sang. Seeds were planted. That was good, too.

Wash, rinse, repeat. Condition, but make sure your choice of conditioner doesn’t contain any silicones because that’s a recipe for unhealthy buildup. Dry your hair with a cotton t-shirt (because, duh, everyone knows that towels are too rough for your coils). Then, spend at least 40 minutes detan...
