It’s just team sports

It’s just team sports

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

Team Sports classes are a good way for students to play a variety of different sports in a non-competitive environment. One of the reasons I’m taking a Team Sports class this year is because I wanted a stress-free part of my day where I could get some exercise. However, the “just for fun” atmosphe...

Many students casually talk about wanting to die, whether it be on social media or in real life. When people say things like “kms” (meaning “kill myself”) they generally try to be ironic and self-deprecating because they want to convey the message that they are embarrassed, stressed or annoye...

Clear American Ice Tropical Lemonade Neither of us could bring ourselves to continue drinking this one. While fairly decent as a whole, the drink felt like a downgraded alternative to Sparkling Ice, with the citrus flavors and the carbonation levels hitting hard. It felt like a muddle of ideas about w...

Walking down the halls of Mill Valley, there are very few phrases someone could say that would be understood by the mass majority of students. Some of them would probably be huge cultural or political statements, but if I could guess, a lot of them would be connected to Vine, the social media platfor...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

It’d be an understatement to say that my junior year was a roller coaster ride. Through an amazing musical, abnormal “play,” exceptional Relay for Life and, most recently, an interesting StuCo election, it’s safe to say that I’ve had a fair share of ups and downs.

It really doesn’t feel that long ago that I was called down to the office my freshman year and told I was going to be on the JagWire staff.
