To commit or not to commit

Avantika Vivek, Co-Editor-in-Chief

April 20, 2016

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

What does it mean to “commit?” I have seen the word used recently in terms of choosing a college, but I am not sure if that word fits so well. My mom and I had a discussion about the word and how it is used. “Saying y...

Human inertia

Nicholas Kumamoto, Co-Editor-in-Chief

April 20, 2016

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

Newton’s first law famously describes inertia: a body at rest tends to stay at rest, and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. This is not only a law of physics, but also one I have, after much research and investigation...

It does not feel like I have spent three years in journalism. During this month, I participated in my last two major competitions for journalism: the Orange County Write-Offs and the Southern California Write-Offs. For three years...

El Nino!! Film at 11!

Southern California is famously deprived of any real weather. Our seemingly endless stream of “75 degrees and sunny” days is so consistent and legendary, it has been the subject of books, films and movies. (One of my favorite...

How to make it work

Avantika Vivek, Co-Editor-in-Chief

March 8, 2016

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

I often find myself worrying about living alone. Simple things like, “Can I fold all of these clothes?” or “How will I be able to cook for myself?” seem to trouble me more than anything school-related. Just yesterd...

The home stretch

Nicholas Kumamoto, Co-Editor-in-Chief

March 8, 2016

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

September 2012. Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” tops the charts, people flock to the movie theaters to see “The Hunger Games” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” and the kids of the Woodbridge High Class of 2016 report for t...

The circus is coming to town

As most of you know, 2016 is a presidential election year. In November, millions of Americans will cast their ballots in the most controversial and exciting election of the past several decades.  This is why politics is parti...

Make them real

Avantika Vivek, Co-Editor-in-Chief

March 3, 2016

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

As I progress in my last year of high school, I have tried my best to live by the saying, “If you do one thing, do it well.” In other words, “Don’t let your dreams be dreams,” as said by Shia LaBeouf. I picked u...

Being Bengali

Samiha Ali, Print Editor-in-Chief

May 14, 2015

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

You’re Indian, right?” It’s a question I am asked rather frequently, to which the answer is always “no.” I am actually Bengali, as in my parents immigrated to America from the country of Bangladesh. If you have never...

What’s in a name?

Samiha Ali, Print Editor-in-Chief

April 23, 2015

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

“Say-my-ha” “Sah-ma-ha” “Somalia” All of the above have been incorrect pronunciations of my name. And no, I’m not kidding about the last one. For as far back as I can remember, both strangers and acquaintances...

Stop waiting for that bouquet

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

Over the month of March, I found myself returning to a terribly problematic addiction— Pinterest. In my excessive pinning, though, I stumbled upon a quote that really struck a chord with me: “Plant your own garden and decorate...

Another month, another column

Samiha Ali, Print Editor-in-Chief

March 11, 2015

Filed under Editor Columns, Print Editor-in-Chief

I spent a half-hour prior to writing this column trying to come up with a topic or direction for the column to follow. Unfortunately, I came up blank. I could talk about how I spent my Valentine's Day, but that would only consist...
