A leash in place of parenting

A leash in place of parenting
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor I was a leash child. It is embarrassing and shameful to admit, of course, but it still exists today. I remember having a bright pink colored strap placed around my wrist every time I would be taken out of my safe, cozy home to heavily populated areas. Most of my childhood memories at Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, malls and airports include my trusty pink leash. Not... 

Comfortable and fashionable

Comfortable and fashionable
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Many women have traded in their sexy stilettos for a pair of fashionable flats. A few years back many young people were not into flats because everything in department stores and boutiques seemed too conservative and old-fashioned. But many new hip and upcoming designers – and even some classic designers, have come out with fresh, modern designs. Now when I go into... 

Dreaming of a green Christmas

Dreaming of a green Christmas
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor In December, world leaders will meet in Copenhagen to discuss, and hopefully implement, a new set of regulations to confront global warming. However, this incredibly important meeting is on pace to be no different than any of the other world conversations about this issue, meaning a lot of rhetoric but little action. Hopefully, and at this point it is still only a hope,... 

At a loss for souvenirs

At a loss for souvenirs
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor While in Madrid this summer, my family and I decided to attend the presentation of the world’s highest paid soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. The Santiago Bernabéu stadium, which holds a capacity of 80,000 people, was filled almost instantly and a large crowd gathered outside the stadium in front of a large television screen to witness Ronaldo’s presentation as a player... 

Preparing for the future

Preparing for the future
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Many students may feel the same way I am feeling: overwhelmed and stressed. It seems like this semester all I have to look forward to is an overwhelming load of school work and projects. My schedule now till mid-December will be totally booked, even including the weekends. Although I love writing for the school newspaper and being editor in chief for the paper has... 

Hard work leads to fulfillment

Hard work leads to fulfillment
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist It is difficult to write a column within the first weeks of school without reflecting the past couple months of my life. I’m sure a lot of people would agree that the events of summer are always quite interesting. My summer consisted basically of writing stuff, playing music, reading and video games. That already sounds like winning combination. Considering... 

Fixated on materialism

Fixated on materialism
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief It seems like all we hear nowadays revolves around materialism. We especially see it on television and various reality shows. Our society has put material things up on a pedestal rather than upholding other important values such as good work ethic, integrity and simplicity. Many have to wear Gucci, Chanel or Coach to resemble others in society, buy the latest plasma... 

Living the American dream

Living the American dream
Julissa Cardenas, Web Editor Immigration has played a big part in my family and it has established who I am today. Almost everyone from my grandparents to my parents came to the United States from Mexico. Although both my parents are now U.S. citizens, they have and still make it a priority to teach my sisters and I the struggles they faced coming to this country and making a living as immigrants. I... 

A progressive summer

A progressive summer
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor In an all out attempt to become more politically and socially active this summer I decided to take the opportunity to involve myself in many activities that people might label progressive. While some might argue that my endeavors this summer should not have a political affiliation, it is clear as of late that my environmentally friendly political activism is part of the... 

Through your looking glass

Through your looking glass
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor James Scully once said “How many dreams have we lost in our sleep while we were working, looking for bread in the rocks… How many birds have flown around our windows while we were playing with our chains in a postponed day?” In life there is always something that catches our attention, a task or instance which consumes our existence. It is...
