Forming deep bonds with teachers is a lesson never forgotten

Serra Raquel, Staff Writer

September 14, 2017

I’ve had many great teachers throughout the years — teachers who I will most likely remember for the rest of my life. The most important quality I have found in my teachers is their ability to relate to the minds of their students. Although it’s assumed that this is an important trait that all...

One Last Time

David Hancock, Staff Writer

May 25, 2017

My dear readers, Two weeks ago I told myself I was so sick of school and I was angry that the school year took so long and I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I told myself I was sick of all the graduation melodrama and that I didn’t care much about leaving high school. I told myself I was ready...

Two Weeks Left

David Hancock, Staff Writer

May 17, 2017

Dear educational bureaucrats, I’m so glad that school is finally over… except it’s not. We’re still here. For two more weeks. WHY!?!?! The last AP tests were last week. Most of my classes have already done a final, and for those that haven’t we are ready to take the final now if they’d...

Relive childhood bliss through movies and cartoons

Serra Raquel, Entertainment Editor

May 8, 2017

Every time I’m sick I find myself drawn to channels like Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon, or films from Disney or Dreamworks; if I have a bad day, the best medicine has proven to be a long marathon of classic Disney films. Is this obsession with children’s movies a sign of immaturity? Some could...

Fire

David Hancock, Staff Writer

April 24, 2017

Dear lovers, I’ve always loved fire. Not in a “burn the world” pyromaniac type of way, but I’ve always thought fire was immensely fascinating and entirely beautiful. The light, the warmth, the heat, and even the burn, I love it all. I think part of what makes fire so attractive to me...

Coffee

David Hancock, Staff Writer

April 21, 2017

Dear millennials, I’ve never really liked coffee. I know like 80% of Americans are literal zombies without their morning cup of Joe, but I never got into it. I remember sipping coffee with my dad back when he still read the newspaper every morning and I was small enough to sit on his lap, but...

Laughter

David Hancock, Staff Writer

April 19, 2017

Dear readers, So last Friday I tried writing something about how great International Rally was, and then on Sunday I thought about writing something about the horrible car accident that happened in Stockton where McNair student Jonathan Sanchez was killed and Dean Dorman was seriously injured, but...

Job

David Hancock, Staff Writer

April 11, 2017

Dear God, What the hell did I do?!?! What have I done to deserve all this crap that's coming my way? Aren't you supposed to have my back, be on my side, protect me? Don't you care!?!? And yeah, I'm seriously doubting you right now. Well guess what, I'm allowed to do that. How do I know? It's...

Sheep

David Hancock, Staff Writer

April 5, 2017

Dear sheep, It is said that there are three types of people in the world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. For those who failed high school english and don’t understand metaphors: sheep are the docile majority, wolves are people who prey on the innocent, and sheepdogs are those who defend the...

Diplomacy

David Hancock, Staff Writer

February 23, 2017

Dear political people, I was walking to my car when I noticed my boi Khaled waiting by the parking lot, so I offered him a ride home. So I drove him to get Wendy’s (on the condition that he bought me a drink) and then to his house, all the while discussing politics. It was weird because Khaled...

I’m Fine

David Hancock, Staff Writer

February 21, 2017

Dear concerned people, I’m fine. Really, I am. Thanks for asking, but it’s ok, I’m fine. I realize that I’m not acting like I’m fine. It’s easier to see when I’m having an off day because I’m usually really loud and smiling all the time, so when I calm down and act like an average...
