I will never understand why people choose to be obnoxious in a movie theater. Why do you feel the need to ruin something for other people because you’re stuck in a bubble of self-entitlement? I’m not salty anymore, but jeez, that’s probably one of the reasons why I didn’t enjoy La La Land...

Erin Baquiran, Photography Editor

January 23, 2017

Hey guys! Over break I found ways to free up my schedule and have more time to work on some projects I’ve been meaning to work on. Well auditioning and working out are always on the list of things to do besides homework, but I’ve been meaning to really push on starting up my own t-shirt business. I...

December 19, 2016

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Self-deprecating jokes have been overwhelmingly abundant this week and it’s only Monday. I’ve been studying like CRAZY over the last week for finals that will either make or break my grades. Continuing studying throughout the weekend was absolutely insane...

Apple Cider

December 12, 2016

As the holidays approach, traditions wrap up the year with customary cheer. Today, at lunch, my friends and I were talking about foods to bring for our Secret Santa potluck. The hostess asked us if we’d like her parents to supply apple cider. The mention of the drink reminded me of my mom’s...

December 5, 2016

Hi guys! So this might be just a little biased, but "Moana" is my favorite Disney movie. Of course there are many AMAZING Disney movies including the classics like "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" to the newer movies like "Tangled," but "Moana" had a unique and perfect balance with humor, music, and...

A Short Plea

Helen Le, Sports Editor

November 14, 2016

When I woke up on Wednesday morning last week, I wasn’t surprised to see that Donald Trump is now our president-elect. Then again, I had stayed up until I was sure who would win. When I realized that Hillary Clinton only had the opportunity to tie when the status of five or so swing states were...

November 7, 2016

Hi guys! Okay this weekend was pretty much filled with a lot of learning and frustration for me, but lots of fun. I signed myself up for a 3-day technology “camp” in Sacramento called Code for Hood, which is a nonprofit organization that helps students learn more about technology, influencing future...

Spooky Scary Skeletons

October 31, 2016

Happy 31st of October! Halloween falling on a Monday is pretty tragic. Some students still receive homework and others just don’t have the chance to go out on a school night. If 2016 wasn’t a leap year, I’m pretty sure Halloween would’ve been yesterday — on a Sunday. Personally, though,...

Social Awkwardness

Erin Baquiran, Photography Editor

October 24, 2016

Hey guys! This week has been a more-awkward-than-normal week for me. Every time I try to socialize with someone I feel like I have to act a certain way or they're expecting me to do something. Well it turns out most people don't care much, but as one who feels awkward all the time I tend to make moments...
