Purchasing a ticket to see After, the much talked about movie among teenage girls, I expected to see a basic chick flick. My expectations weren’t wrong, but I am a sucker for a good teen romance movie. The movie is centered around Tessa, a new and dedicated college student, who begins to fall for the “b...

During fall ball with my club softball team, we couldn’t participate in some tournaments because we didn’t have enough players. Trying to rely on substitute players is difficult when so many other teams need them too, and it’s especially difficult trying to get pitchers and catchers. To solve this, Ka...

There’s an older meme that most internet users under the age of 17 have seen 一 it’s a triangle, with friends, sleep and good grades each in a different corner, and in the center, it says “choose two.” When I was an eighth grader, I thought the graphic was exaggerated, and I vowed to myself that I wo...

Most students have realized by now that the mantra “you can be whatever you want when you grow up” is a bit misleading. However, sometimes cynical high schoolers skew too far in the other direction; we pigeonhole ourselves into a certain college, a certain trade or a certain career before we’ve...

Raging LA forest fires. Deadly Midwestern floods. Withering Honduran droughts. These stories of suffering taking place around the world have been caused by climate change, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Instead of letting climate change continue to ravage our environment we should be responding to these stories with lifestyle changes and technology because we...

When you’re sitting in class, do you ever think to yourself, “When am I ever going to use this in the future?” Throughout my high school years, I’ve asked myself this question probably a hundred times. After doing some research and more in-depth thinking, I’ve came to the idea that students ...

Throughout my entire school career, I have always wished for a longer summer, especially as August becomes one of the hottest months of the year.  Recently, schools around us have been discussing and switching to longer school day schedules that enable them to have an extended break.

Graduate from high school, go to college, start a career, get married, have a couple kids (and a couple dogs) — that’s the dream. Well, that’s my dream. But, it’s also the dream in which seems to be forced upon students today, especially in affluent areas such as ours. However, there’s dan...

Warning: Spoilers ahead After seeing "Captain Marvel", I would not say it was my favorite Marvel movie, but it was worth spending my paycheck for the movie ticket. Not only did I like seeing a strong female lead, I fell in love, as Nick Fury did, with Goose the cat and a mini history lesson. I wou...

Ever since the election of Donald Trump, it seems like politics is all that matters. For many years politics didn’t seem to matter in picking your friends but that has definitely changed. Politics has dominated the news and political parties seem to be moving farther and farther apart. This politica...

As our world becomes increasingly more dependent on technology, most people, especially teenagers, are spending less time in nature and outside in general. Netflix and Fortnite is more appealing to today's youth than trees and fresh air. Students should find time to be outdoors as often as possible. ...

The screens are made from “washi” or handmade paper that Kyoko made herself. Additionally, she created the colors using natural materials, like gemstones. Additionally, Kyoko added Japa...
