Hanging out with Hannah

Hannah Blakely, Features Editor

April 3, 2011

I rarely thank my family or give thanks for my family.  I tend to take them for granted and never realize the blessing I have in front of me.  I have such an amazing family and one of the best childhoods. Growing up I did not face any family problems.  Not saying we were perfect, but we functioned well.  I knew both my...

Recently Alexandra Wallace, a student at UCLA, posted a video ranting about Asian students within her school. The video, Asians in the Library, portrays Wallace venting to her camera about the things that the Asian students do that basically annoy her.  Wallace begins the video by first clarifying that she is not bashing...

Breakfast! Breakfast could truly be said to be the most important meal of the day. I think it is crucial for everyone to eat breakfast. It is hard enough to get up to the annoying sound of the alarm clock especially after snoozing it for the third time. But by then you know that you are running late. The days that I know...

“Friday” becomes YouTube sensation

Hannah Blakely, Features Editor

April 3, 2011

In this day and age it seems the way to get the public's attention is by outrageous songs, events, or videos.  This is why it was no wonder that 13-year-old Rebecca Black's first single "Friday" went viral only after two days. "Friday" was produced by Ark Music Factory.  Ark will charge some sum of money to write, produce,...

BOBS vs. TOMS

Sara Lachance, Reporter

April 3, 2011

BOBS vs. TOMS.  A new shoe battle has been thrown down.  Should TOMS fight against Sketchers because of their knock-off version of TOMS? Or should they let it go because BOBS gives away a pair of shoes as well? BOBS are little, canvas slip-on shoes that have either solid colors or striped patterns on them.  They are...

Products causing girls to grow up too fast

Britanee Russell, Co-Editor

April 3, 2011

There is a growing pressure on young girls to grow up faster than necessary. This is largely the result of companies marketing products that facilitate this among their buyers-young girls and their parents. Girls have always been into make up and dress up clothes, playing with Barbies, and pretending to be mommys; but...

Talkin’ with Tiff

Tiffany Bounkhong, Co-Editor

April 3, 2011

Uninspired. That's how I feel. I'm uninspired to continue to do well in school. I'm uninspired to feel motivated for the future. I'm uninspired to write this column. What's the point? Where am I going? Why do I need to continue to do the things I do?  Day in and day out I wake up always feeling the way I do. I'm always looking,...

Hannah’s half of the story

Hannah Ash, Reporter

April 3, 2011

"Whatever." That's a funny word. My ex-boyfriend hated that word. He only hated it when it was used in the sense of an argument's finale. I hate that word in that sense also now. I really miss him. Despite all we've been through, I can't hate him, but I can hate a lot of other things. I can hate wind, stupidity, technology,...

Bit by Brit

April 3, 2011

"As of right now, 235 seniors are failing." My eyes got wide as I took in what was being said by Mr. Harris at the senior meeting on March 16.  I knew senioritis was running rampant through the class of 2011, but I had no idea it was this bad.  It's almost as if everyone has simply given up. I couldn't decide what the...

The Biz with Liz

Elizabeth Hankins, Entertainment Editor

April 3, 2011

I remember kindergarden. When everything was simple and there was naptime and my biggest worry was if someone would take the toy I wanted to play with. Boys had cooties and toys were gold. Kindergarden was a great time. No one had to grow up and face the world. Now I'm older and things are changing, and I see a lot more...

In Jasmeet’s own words

April 3, 2011

Choosing certain classes for the following year is the last thing on some people’s minds, but for me it’s stressful. Finally, when everything seems to be right March comes soon enough. With March comes decisions and responsibilities because it’s time for CAP (Career Action Plan). Going through the CAP process as a freshman...

Sharing Thoughts with Sara

Sara Lachance, Reporter

April 3, 2011

When most people think of the word "home," they think of a house with comfy furniture, a place full of warmth in the winter and nice, cold air in the summer.  But my home isn't made of bricks nor wood, and it doesn't have a roof or any walls.  My home is the soccer field.  The soccer field, for me, is where everything and...
