Every school day, I walk the hallways, minding my own business, just trying to get to class. I don’t push or shove, and I make sure to be kind and let the really short kids or incredibly shy kids pass me because I know those halls are hard for them. But I just can’t believe how many people just...

October 13, 2010

Status of my mind: Completely and utterly inverted. Cause of this abnormality: Roger Waters performing a Pink Floyd concert.

CBS show is still going strong

October 5, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Five seasons and still going is the  perfect way to describe  the CBS show "How I Met Your Mother." The weaving of old characters and new ones can't be matched by any new program. Now in its sixth season, it is still a pleasure to behold. The stars of "How I Met Your Mother," Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Alyso...

'Glee:' season two starts strong

September 22, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

After a stellar first season, 'Glee' had a high reputation to uphold in it's premiere on Tuesday night.  I was someone who, at first, was opposed to the 'Glee' phenomena that began circling schools everywhere last September.  However, I finally joined in during the second half of season one and now consider myself a full-fledged gleek. R...

'Easy A:' A unique and refreshing change

September 22, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

It was Friday night and I walked into Arlington Theaters expecting the typical Friday night buzz.  I was attending the 7:15 showing of 'Easy A' and figured the theater would be about half-full; it was an earlier showing after all.  To my surprise there was a line waiting to get into theater five, and...

Slow down and savor the moment, seniors

September 16, 2010


Filed under Opinions

So it’s senior year. I’ve waited for this year all my life, and intend to fully savor every last moment of it. But what’s next: college for most, and the real world for anyone else. This is truly the last year seniors have to be kids. I know it’s early, but the reality of life after high school ...

Trivial texting toleration waivers for senior

September 16, 2010


Filed under Opinions

Cell phones aren't going away, lets face it, they are as essential as Lindsay Lohan's trips to rehab. It is not unusual to see teenagers out and about with their trendy phone glued to the inside of their palm. I will just come right out and say that I am not against texting. I think texting is extremely ...

Backpack brawls prey on student patience

September 16, 2010


Filed under Opinions

It has finally happened. Hallway traffic has never been so slow. Students look like zombies slowly trudging through the over-packed hallways. Mysterious bruises have been appearing all over several students. Tension has been building, students have been prone to break out in fits of rage, cussing each o...

Ke$ha: It’s a love or hate relationship

September 16, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Ke$ha: Ashley- I used to be deeply annoyed with Ke$ha. Her electronic sound and raunchy lyrics made my head hurt. The radio was constantly playing "Tik Tok," and it made me sick. But one day my brother had "Blah Blah Blah" playing, and my feelings toward her changed. Within the first few seconds of the song,...

MGMT: a psychedelic throwback

September 16, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Ashley Hawkins and Kevin Hyde MGMT: Ashley- My friend told me about MGMT, and she warned me that they were an acquired taste. At first, I wasn't too huge about them. However, the more I listened to them, the more they grew on me. "Kids" is extremely catchy. The rhythm in "Time To Pretend" had me hooked ...

‘Eat, Pray, Love’ leaves audience satisfied

September 10, 2010


Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

I walked into the theater to see "Eat, Pray, Love" expecting a rather typical tale- girl loses sight of whats important in life, girl goes on fabulous trip, girl eats lots of food and doesn't appear to gain weight, girl rediscovers herself, and girl meets the perfect guy in Bali. Well, the Bali part...
