I don't usually listen to acoustic music, but lately acoustic songs have been giving me real winter-time vibes. And I obviously can't wait for the winter to arrive, so I wanted to make a list of the 10 best acoustic songs I've been obsessed with lately. And I'd recommend that you give them a listen too, because sometimes acoustic...

Feminism

Feminism, it seems, is unfortunately very often misunderstood. It is not about women hating on men. The whole idea of feminism is one of equality. Even celebrities like 22-year-old actress Shailene Woodley (whom I personally have nothing against) are terribly misinformed about what it is. When asked whether she considers herself...

Ok, we’ve all heard of the famous friend-zone. The dreaded place that many unfortunate souls are doomed to stay ‘just friends’ forever. Many movies’ entire plotlines are based around this. One of the most famous: Ducky from Pretty in Pink. For those of you who have not seen this fantastic film, I highly recommend it. It t...

“What are you going to do, steal a book?”

It’s the second week of school, and anyone who has taken an English class at Corona knows that you should pick out a book for a report, because chances are you will need it for a report. My class took a trip down to the library for this purpose. Referring to the alarms you must walk through in order to exit the library, my...

As the summer came to a close, I was rewarded with one last exercise of my freedom with a trip to Alaska. This particular vacation had been the result of years of planning and anticipation, scheduled right after my 16th birthday and directly before the start of my junior year. With the thought of a new school year looming overhead,...

Apps on our cell phones and tablet computers have become ubiquitous in our lives and it seems as if there is an app for everything.

See how the most mundane of tasks can be replaced by an app, adhering to the phrase “there’s...

As students residing in the state of Arizona, there is something we all must do. It is boring, challenging, frustrating and annoying, but also highly important. The Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) tests are essential parts to any Arizona student’s transcript and are tools that can lead to diplomas and...

The bell rings at 6:23 a.m. for the poor souls who choose to attend school that early. They are going to zero hour, the extra hour of classes offered at Corona that allows students to make up credits or get ahead.

Homework proves to overwhelm

January 27

Filed under Staff Blogs

After spending more than six hours a day at school as a student, the last thing I want to do is go home and take school with me. Unfortunately, this seems to be exactly what I do. I typically have anywhere from two to almost four hours of homework a night. To me, this seems like an extreme amount. I understand the concept of...

This month I was lucky enough to get to go see my favorite Broadway show, The Lion King. Coincidentally, The Lion King was the very firs...

For many students around Corona, lunchtime comes with anxiety and stress, as they have to think carefully about what they choose to put into their body.  One wrong choice and it could mean discomfort, pain, or even a threat to their life. They have food allergies, and their condition requires a complete lifestyle change. Most...

Schools should provide opportunities for exploration

Aashini Choksi, Life & Times Editor

September 13

Filed under Staff Blogs

High school is supposed to be the best years of our lives. During our impressionable teen years, we are encouraged to explore different aspects of life, make new friends and “discover ourselves.” Making mistakes, learning from them and moving on are just part of life. Nowadays, however, it seems like the purpose of high...
