Violence is never the answer

Why do some people feel like violence is the only solution to problems? It doesn’t matter that only a very few percentage feel this way: the recent shootings in Tucson and at the Chandler Fashion Center have proved that it only takes one person to do a whole lot of damage.  One man managed to shoot...

What is Valentine’s Day?

What is Valentine’s Day?

Point: In 3rd grade, students were required to buy Valentine’s Day cards for the class. Problem was they came in packs of 28 but all my classes had 30 students. Back then, I was a nice person so I would go out and buy an extra-pack so as not to leave any students out. This left me with 26 extra...

It’s so easy to coast through life, living day by day with no specific plans in store. However, is that really how you want to live your life? Trying to survive the days until the weekend, or just doing the minimum amount of work until graduation? Kind of depressing, isn’t it? It is so important...

People usually associate grey clouds with gloominess and sadness, but for me an overcast sky brightens up my day than a bright, sunny day. Weird, right? Especially considering we live in a desert state that has an average of 325 out of 365 days per year of clear, sunshiny days. I’m prone to more s...

If you happened to read “Ode to My Sweater” in the paper, then this should shed some light on what I actually meant by it. If you haven’t read it, you can do so by going to our current issue, which is in the right sidebar. For the first day of Dec. I wanted to show my Christmas season spirit...

From Nov. 10-13 approximately 80 students, predominantly from Corona but accompanied by 15 Marcos de Niza students, participated in activities, lectures and bonding exercises centered around unity, diversity, and leadership at AztecTown camp. I found the experience very enlightening and beneficial....

Life as an actor

Friday I was standing behind a trapdoor as the characters from Clue wander through the house searching for the killer. The lights dim and the Motorist began her phone conversation. That is when I make my move. I slide the trapdoor open and in my black morph suit kill the Motorist before she is able ...

I just got back from a fun week in California visiting my brother and hanging out on the beach. It was a nice break from school and a nice break from the Arizona weather. Now I have to go back to focusing on school, studying and working for the “A’s.” I still feel on break and my attitud...

It is currently 5:13 in the morning. I am on my elliptical and writing this on my iTouch. The glass doors in front of me are wide open. Cool air. I have two tests today, both of which I will most likely fail, but I do not care. It is currently 67 degrees outside right now. I am ecstatic because...

If there is one thing I’ve learned in life up to this point it’s that if a cute guy asks for your number, you give it to him. That’s common sense, isn’t it? I made the mistake of not giving the cute guy my number and I’ve regretted it ever sense. As I thought about my small mistake, my perception...

Hippie haters

Got to love how quick people are to jump to conclusions. I was recently faced with a situation where this conclusion-jumping led me to think I was going to be knocked out cold with one swift punch. It all started with a grand old time hanging outside of QT after an ultimate frisbee game (it’s the...

The tragedy of movie making from books

Sarah Dinell

September 10, 2010


Filed under Opinions, Staff Blogs

It’s an age old argument; movies vs. books. But what about those books that are made into movies? Which version is better? Recently, in one of my bouts of boredom, I was reading through lists of books that were eventually made into movies. There were many more than I expected, a lot of movies that...
