I have a modest proposal. Stay home this Thursday and Friday. It’s unethical for the workers that businesses force to work long hours on Thanksgiving Day and through the weekend— and you’re not actually saving much money in the first place. According to the Wall Street Journal, retail discounts...

Chick-fil-A. Costco pizza. One of the most delicious parts of a student’s day is hot lunch, and, of course, many students purchase hot lunch every quarter. But it’s no secret that the hot lunch lines can get very, very long. “If I’m at the front of the line [it takes] probably 5 minutes, but if t...

Opening the gates at 10 A.M. on the weekdays, Knott’s Berry Farm entertains guests from all over (but there are a notable amount of people from Arizona, in my experience). There is plenty to do in the park, ranging from exciting roller coasters to get the blood flowing, to Western-themed stores in the...

The reimagination of a classic children’s story— and even classic movies— is no easy feat. For the first time in quite a while, Disney truly wowed me with one of its older stories remade as live action. As so many others have fallen flat (looking at you, “Jungle Book”), I did not have the hi...

  Why I walked out, by Anastasia Reimann At 9:59 a.m. on March 14, I left my first-period class with several of my classmates to participate in a student-led memorial held to honor the 17 people who died in the Parkland shooting. In a very primitive sense of the term’s definition, yes,...

I’m sure you’ve heard about the recent and popular movie “Black Panther.” While it may seem based on the title that this album is merely of the movie’s score, it’s not; this album is a soundtrack inspired by the movie. Choice songs from the album are featured in the movie like “Pray For M...

“Kiss me, Hardy.” How can words — nothing more than stains of ink on a page — drive pain into someone so deeply and so easily, like a knife into butter? People hide behind the words, and we are our worst enemies. Sometimes we can’t help but hurt people. The biggest culprits, in my pu...
