Next year our class of 2016 is going to start a new chapter in life.
They are headed to high school, but they have to make decisions of what electives they are taking for next year. A lot of students just pick the elective for the fun of it, but some think of their future with that elective that they have chosen. Just like Jennifer Bruno. She said “AVID is my favorite elective and I take it because I know it will help me for college and to get scholarships.” Also in high school there are a lot more electives to choose from. People might want to learn new languages just like Frank Hernandez (8). He said “I would like to take Spanish in high school so, I can talk Spanish with my bilingual friends. “
Some high schools have different electives, but they are all wonderful. Just be sure to pick something you like.
The Mayans predict that the world will end Dec. 21, 2012. This leads us all to be curious of what really is going to happen.
It all started because the Mayan calendar ends on the day of December 21 2012. They even made a movie called 2012 that lead us to fear more of this day. Some people believe in everything that’s going to end, but some people don’t believe it will. Erin Cuba-Major that stated “I don’t think 2012 is going to happen because they said the same thing in the year 2000.” I asked people just like Agapito Orozco what he would do to try to survive longer than others he said, “I would just dig a hole under my house to see if I can be the only one left in earth.” Also, some people have even quit their job because they have said they have enough money left until the day we die. Many people are already gathering materials up to survive 2012. They have lists of what their keeping with them such as water, seeds to plant new vegetables. If the world ends people say they’re going to have to start from scratch.
Valentine’s Day is a day where you can give your lovers gifts. It is one of the most romantic days of the year to express your feelings for your loved ones.
A lot of people take their loved ones to the movies, dinner or someplace special to celebrate their love.
“Me and my boyfriend, Victor Tamez, have been together for four months now. For Valentine’s Day we are going to Olive Garden, and he’s paying,” said Alicia Ledezama (8). On the other hand, many people don’t celebrate this romantic season. “I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because boys are stupid,” says Lucy Sanchez (8).
