Emma’s Dilemma: Movies and Senior Year

Emma’s Dilemma: Movies and Senior Year

Emma Garcia, Online Editor-in-Chief

December 4, 2015

You know that feeling when you learn about something and then suddenly it’s everywhere? I’ve been having that feeling constantly the last several months. It seems like every movie and show I watch has something to do with someone’s senior year in high school. Frankly, it’s maddening. I know wha...

Emma’s Dilemma: Free Money (Limit One)

I know there are many options for my post this week (I know many seniors will never forgive me for forgetting powder puff), but I have one topic that seems perfect for this Thanksgiving week. Let me set the scene: My mom and I were in San Francisco to see If/Then with Idina Menzel. The show start...

Emma’s Dilemma: Identity Crisis

Emma’s Dilemma: Identity Crisis

Emma Garcia, Online Editor-in-Chief

November 20, 2015

If you have heard anything about my life these past few weeks, you could assume this post is about one of two things: college applications, or the fact that Cody thought he lost his pants and definitely lost his ID. Both relate to identity crises, but the former is a topic I think is more representative ...

Every single college football coach in the SEC ㅡ which consists of powerhouse schools such as the University of Alabama, Auburn and the University of Florida ㅡ are contracted to make over $4 million this year. These salaries raise eyebrows across the county; presidents of these universities don’t...

Laura’s Diary #5: 18 and struggling

Laura Angle, Guest Writer

October 30, 2015

Dear Diary, So much has changed over the past ten months. It seems like just yesterday I had Jack, and now he has said his first word, can crawl all over the house (and gets into everything possible), Drew and I are now engaged, and I’m in college. Every Saturday, Jack and I walk down to Mr....

More than Pigskin with Livingston

Darius Livingston, Sports Editor

September 11, 2015

Most sports fans would say the more exhilarating and exciting sports to watch are the ones with male participants. Viewers prefer to watch the NBA instead of the WNBA and would rather watch men’s boxing than women’s boxing. Male sports take the spotlight away from female sports because of the often aggressive nature and fast pace associated with sports like football and basketball. However women’s sports have been gaining both prestige and viewers as recent momentous events have escalated its fan base.

Emma’s Dilemma: ASB Elections Fall Flat

Emma Garcia, Online Editor

May 18, 2015

A few weeks ago, the voting for the student government class next year occurred. Maybe for the other grades this is a momentous occasion (the junior class president race is heating up, after all), but for the juniors that are about to be seniors (take a second for the panic to sink in), voting was a...

A few months ago, I went and saw Mockingjay and Natalia and I each got a large soda. Now this was not just a large soda. This was a LARGE soda that was bigger than my face. I got it because it was refillable and we would be there for a while. I regretted this because that thing was heavy. While carrying...

We laughed, we cried — we made one too many parodies of “What Makes You Beautiful.” But the time has finally come: the slow deterioration of the popular boy band One Direction, with the recent departure of one of its members, Zayn Malik. On March 25, Malik announced his decision to leave...

You know that scene in Sleeping Beauty, the animated one, not Maleficent, where the fairies fight over what color Aurora’s dress should be? And they change it back and forth from pink to blue and back again? That’s a pretty good representation of my weekend. On Saturday after my mom picked me...

Down With SeaWorld and Their Blood Money

Emma Garcia, Online Editor

April 3, 2015

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t seen, or at least heard of, the documentary Blackfish. There has been plenty of debate about SeaWorld and the treatment of their animals. Since the airing of the documentary in 2013 on CNN, ticket sales have dropped, entertainers have canceled appearances, and...
