Thoughtful Thursday: All my friends are musicians

Thoughtful Thursday: All my friends are musicians

Zoe Alvarez, Thoughtful Thursday columnist

Going to a fine arts school comes with its unique perks. I remember sitting in my combined dual class in the recital hall when the realization hit me, the majority of the class were musicians. All my friends are musicians and have knowledge in the fine arts field. It spans from band, orchestra, and mari...

What are friends?

Julieta Lopez, Staff Writer

November 27, 2018

What is a friend exactly? Is it someone you meet out of nowhere, someone you trust, someone you love. To me, a real friend is all that and much more, it’s somebody that cares for you, helps you out, and treats you like a sibling. He/she is someone who loves with all their heart and no matter what. They’ll always give you advice for the mistakes you make because they know what’s best. They can encourage you to become a better version of yourself, and they also help you see the beauty of the person who you really...

How can a furry four-legged mammal change a life? By a four-legged mammal, I mean a dog. Those fluffy little things that squeak when they are puppies and then bark as they grow up. Two special dogs have changed my life: a male mix French poodle named Canelo and a female of the same breed name Fluffy. ...

My outstanding best friends

Karla Alvarez, Staff Writer

January 11, 2017

I had started to lose hope in finding good friends who I can trust, joke with, and be there for. All of that had changed when I met my current best friends. I wouldn’t trade them for the world. I’ve known most of them for a couple of years but it wasn’t until last year that we started getting close. I would like to begin with the friend who enjoys to act, dance, and sing. She’ll probably make it to the big screen one day. Athziri is her name and she is the most fun person you ever meet. Since the day I met her...

Observations: Secrets are meant to be kept

Delilah Gonzalez, Observations Columnist

November 20, 2014

Secrets should never be shared, especially if told in confidence. If shared, it could lead to unwanted audiences, start rumors, and break up friendships. Secrets are meant to be kept, not shared. If a secret is given to you it’s the reason for that person trusting you. If he/she tells you “I trust you, please don’t tell anyone,” it’s because he/she doesn’t want anyone to know but only you and wants your confidence. If you share the secret that’s given to you, you can lose his/her trust and friendship....

Today is the day I have to say ''It's not a goodbye. It’s a see you soon.'' I'm really going to miss my friends this year. I really had a good year. I did have lots of fun in my morning classes at VMT. I met new friends from different schools. I enjoyed the events VMT would have. They were so fun. I did have trouble in some classes. I wouldn't understand a subject but I never gave up. I hope I get to see my friends in 10th grade. Hopefully I don't change schools. I definitely want come too VMT next year. Next...

My scary yet fun weekend

William Rodriguez, Staff Writer

October 21, 2013

We all know that its October and its that time of year where people decorate their houses with pumpkins and scary decorations. It's also the time of year when people dress up with their unique cool costumes and go around trick or treating to all the houses. Well I can't wait for Halloween day, but this weekend I went to FEAR the haunted house, the one behind the Mall del Norte parking lot. I went with several of my friends and we were all very excited to see how it was inside. We had to wait for around 45 minutes or more...
