Lately, I’ve experienced a great amount of nostalgia. Every memory brought chills yet warmth to my skin. I could only describe the sensation as being wrapped in soft blankets. I couldn’t help but smile as memories played in my mind. I revisited my youth when a friend of mine gave me a bouquet...

October 15, 2019

By now everyone has heard about President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry. It was first brought to the attention of the public on Sept. 24. It has been three weeks since this announcement has been made. Since then people have been making their opinions known, including the president himself. The reason the investigation is being conducted is because the president asked the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, to investigate Joe Biden, top democratic candidate, and his family. President Trump had been making calls to Ze...

Let’s Talk Politics: Abortion

Brianna Pineda, Staff Writer

October 11, 2019

The topic of abortion has always been a controversy in our society. Though every state has at least one abortion clinic, there are some states in the United States that have set restrictions to have an abortion. Restrictions such as the 20 week abortion ban and the heartbeat bills and so many more make it harder for women to get an abortion, and go against the ruling of Roe v. Wade. Now, when I say restrictions I mean exactly that. Since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case in 1973, abortion is fully legal in the U.S. R...

We often associate crying with a negative emotion such as sadness and anger. It’s far from normal to see crying in a positive light. All throughout society it is seen as a weakness.

I’ve always considered myself to be a moth. I have a strong fascination for neon lights. Often, I’m asked what color scheme I would describe my soul as and the answer is neon.

Once again, it’s that time of year where everyone is coming back to school. We all wear our newest clothing, show off our freshest haircut, but most importantly, we show off our newest kicks. There’s nothing like a new pair of shoes. We live to show off the bright white soles and clean fabrics....

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.

Zoe Alva, Thoughtful Thursday columnist

June 6, 2019

I believe there are various acts of courage. Recommending music to friends or others is most definitely one of them. Our taste in music is our own little corner of privacy. It’s one of the very aspects that makes up our personalities, perception of the world, and emotions. Our taste in music is whe...

I saw what colors complimented each other ...
