Masks, once a symbol of constriction, become opportunities for expression
By Savannah Butcher, Graphics Editor
Approximately a year ago, mask mandates started to roll out across America. Makeup artists and those who wanted to show off their facial hair were equally disappointed, but now many students have seized the opportunity and adapted to a masked life.
“It’s been tough since a lot of the hilarious impressions I do rely on my facial expression, and when half my face is covered then you can’t tell whether I’m doing Walken or Pacino!” senior Jake Bowden said.
“I usually like to smile at people when I’m in the store or town. With masks, it just looks like I’m narrowing my eyes at them, as if I’m challenging them to a fistfight.” senior Rowan Schroeder said.
“Bonk!!” senior Ava Lorentzen said.
“Time should be spent chasing times to remember, not more time.” senior Malio Nelson said.
“Masks make me kind of sad and irritated.” senior Kolobri Enson-Overstreet said.
