I hate “Cats”. Never before has a movie marinated me into a boredom induced coma, complete with shock and outright fear, until now.  Let’s take a journey into the trenches.  “Cats” is a musical turned live action movie. It is by far one of the worst  movies ever bestowed...

Oh, Valentine’s Day, a time when both love and disappointment is in the air.   Love in accordance to the holiday itself, and disappointment for those who don’t have that special someone. One of those unfortunate people is yours truly.  As a freshman, I somewhat miss the times...

If you thought that California was America’s pothole, let me introduce you to the state having spasms in the gutter. Meet Florida, and its bold and highly fanatical population. For those of you who don’t know, “Florida Man” is a meme about the crazy things that the men and women of Florida...

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get ready to rumble.  Two heavy-hitters are about to enter the ring in the case of Trump v. California. The two have been known to trade blows in and out of the court system.  In one corner, President Donald J. Trump. In the other, the State of California.  It’s...

The most anticipated storming of a secretive Air Force Base in American history happened on Sept. 20.  Kinda.  “AlienStock” was not a bop, but rather a over-hyped flop. Rather than a Spartan style siege of Area 51, we were instead gifted with dancing, alien bodysuits, and some Chad with a...

A few months ago, a woman sat down on a seat in a BART train on what she thought was chocolate, except it wasn’t.  Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is supposed to be a fast and efficient way to get around the Bay Area, but recently it’s been everything but that.

The Stairs are Cruel to this Freshman

Wyatt Golla, Reporter

October 14, 2019

Please have pity on me, for I have the displeasure of taking a miniature hike every day and I have no say in the matter. I have four periods that require vast amounts of labor just to get to my next academic activity. Yes, I have to walk up several flights of stairs every day, and that’s only counting...

I cannot believe I am using my talents to write this.  Now I’ll be honest, the only time I have ever watched anything James Charles is when it is being spoon fed to me, dank meme style on Twitter.  In case you were in a coma and you still don’t know who Charles is, then just remember...

With every day that goes by that we have to endure eight grueling hours at an educational institution comes that insatiable urge to just… not care.   As we get closer and closer to the end of the school year, a seasonal epidemic sweeps through our school. Tardies are stockpiled, attendance...

Vaccinations are good.  Right?  Polio, Measles, Mumps, Influenza, Pertussis, Tetanus, HPV, Meningitis, Chicken Pox, Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B are all diseases or illnesses people can be vaccinated against. And while half of them sound like the names of upper echelon Italian fashion brands, it...
