“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is a phrase everyone grows up hearing, yet many high schoolers walk out of their house every morning on an empty stomach. This could be due to a lack of hunger or time, but either way students who have a stressful day of school work ahead of them sh...

To most people, running is a black and white thing, either you love it or you hate it. There is no middle ground. As someone who has been running since seventh grade, my relationship with running has changed greatly throughout my Cross Country and Track career. After all these years, running is no long...

From the memories I have gathered watching a wide variety of sports, I know that each one of them has a time where it is so popular, it looks like the sport will last forever, and the feeling where it appears no one bothers to watch and the sport will soon disappear. For example, Major League Soccer is...

For the second installment of Nicole and Andy cook, we decided to take on the famous chicken parmigiana, more commonly known as chicken parmesan.

As I sit here writing this opinion, I think about the past three years and how much I’ve changed. When I walked in the doors as a freshman I was worried that I wouldn’t take advantage of the four years at Mill Valley. I was afraid that I would just waste the time and not do anything. At the end of ...

Keeping up with the lives of celebrities, procrastinating on homework, spending too much time on your phone and caring too much about what other people think. These are the four pillars of what teenagers are assumed to be doing. While they are exaggerated, there is truth to parts of them. In particular...

Over the loudspeaker,  you hear Officer Mo’s voice echo through the halls and the classrooms telling everyone that there’s an active shooter in a-hall. Students able to evacuate run around aimlessly in every direction. Other students arm themselves with chairs, scissors and books. No one knows what to...

When we hope to have a civil and pleasant conversation with a group of people, we are told to avoid three specific conversation topics: politics, religion and money. We all know nothing is better at firing people up than two clashing opinions in the same room, especially when it comes to politics. Howe...

Going into senior year, I knew that in order to be successful I would have to be as organized as humanly possible. With college application deadlines and scholarship essays on top of the day to day high school and after school life, senior year is pretty hectic. In order to keep all of these things str...
