Have you ever went to the movie theatre to see a movie and it began but you were almost positive it had to be a joke? This happened to me when I went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid: the Long Haul. It was such bad acting it seemed impossible for them to be serious. Alicia Silverstone, former iconic actress fr...

Since this is my last hoorah, I feel the need to take a different approach to my senior column. If you know me, this should come as no surprise. During my time at GHHS, I’ve realized my passion for fighting for the underdogs and expressing the struggles of those without an outlet to do so. I woul...

Throughout elementary school, it was hard to find something that I was good at. I tried piano only to find that I had no sense of rhythm. I then was put into gymnastics and ballet, however, that did not last long because I’m about as graceful as a baby giraffe. Nothing seemed to click for me, until ...

Four years ago, in May of 2013, I was finishing up my time at Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School in Eastvale, California. As far as I knew then, my freshman year would start that August at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, which was close enough to my house that I would bike to school everyday (even ...

Music is often a reflection of who we are as people. In other words, if I listen to heavy metal I probably wouldn’t be in the best mood, and I if I listen to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, well, you get the idea. Over the course of high school, as my music tastes have changed, I too ha...

Let me preface this by stating a true fact: I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. I mean generally, as I go to school and maneuver through my life. I walk with my head held high and pretend that I have some semblance of an idea, but in all honesty, I don’t. I feel like an acrobat about to walk ...

I’m nearing the end of a four year career at GHHS and there’s still a lot of things here I can’t wrap my head around. Why is it so expensive to play sports? Did they really fix all of the clocks, or are they still randomly untrustworthy? Did someone actually think gold cards would motivate stud...

The hard thing about being a freshman is that it’s so difficult to gain traction when you first start high school. Every analogy you’ve ever heard is true. You’re the low man on the totem pole and it seems that there’s no way to move up. Above anything, I wanted to be accepted by the upperclassmen....

My entry into high school brought two preconceived notions upon me: the seniors were the most important and admired people in high school; and that I was just a lowly freshman who had no use to this world until I was to be a senior myself. Now, as a senior, I have found that these notions are complet...

Logic has been one of my favorite rappers, however, his most recent album Everybody is extremely disappointing. Every aspect of the album is a failure, even if it was made with good intentions. Just because an album is heavily centered on social justice doesn’t make it good. Kendrick Lamar is a master of...

Schools all around the country are filled with phenomenal students and athletes. It is difficult to perform on your team when you’re overwhelmed with loads of homework.

Being enthusiastic and happy is a part of my daily routine. People ask me how I maintain such a positive attitude all the time, and I tell them it is just part of who I am. I love being happy.  I try to be confident in myself and make the best out of whatever situation I’m in. But I haven’t alwa...
