Phad Thai takeout Review

Phad Thai takeout Review   Last night my family ordered Best Thai from takeout apps. It's better to go in and do curbside pickup because they will serve the people there before they deliver it to you. When the food got here it was bad. We were originally super excited. The food came fast and right on time but the downside was the food was flavorless and the egg rolls were burnt. We had to use what we had in our kitchen to doctrine it to  provide flavor. What's even worse is that it was a waste of $60. We were practically forced to eat this food because we did not want to waste the money. I would not recommend this place for Grub hub and Door dash users or any other app that delivers takeout . The issue with...

U.S Government to Reduce Number of Troops in Iraq

U.S Government to Reduce Number of Troops in Iraq

September 18, 2020

For most people, 2020 has been nothing but a consistent harborer of bad news- rather raging wildfires, the ever-looming tension of a tumultuous political election in the US, and of course, a pandemic of such unprecidence and calibre it still feels unreal to most. However not every event  to have occurred this year tells of despair and strife. One such gem in an array of daunting stories is the long-awaited decision by the U.S government to reduce it’s amount of soldiers located in Iraq.  ...

Why everything feels uncertain what we can do to be better

Covid -19 has taken over the world and everything does not always make sense we are 7 months in a pandemic and we still have no idea what's going on in the grand scheme of things  Life as we know it has changed and compared to everyone else who seems to be getting back to regular life as they have taken care of and done everything in their power towards the issue.    We are still behind which is why we can feel that much more alone. As our leaders are failing us as a nation we sit and watch it all unfold. I believe it shows that the foundation this country was built on is cracked and is continuously doing so. I think we can all finally see what's really happening in  a grander way than we ever could before...

The Great Awakening

The Great Awakening

September 8, 2020

Ask most historians and they'll tell you the Great Awakening refers to a period in the 18th century English colonies in which the people in present-day America experienced a revived and unquenchable passion in their religious theologies. However nearly 300 years later, the term ‘Great Awakening’ is experiencing a revival of its own as it is used to describe an unprecedented time in American history. For a Black-owned bookstore in Fort Worth, ‘The Great Awakening’ is what the owners of the store...

How to Have a Wedding, COVID Style

How to Have a Wedding, COVID Style

August 31, 2020

When a little girl or boy dreams about their future wedding, usually they envision a beautiful venue surrounded by friends and family, topped off with a reception filled with celebratory dancing and energetic music. Never would one picture their significant other designated to a hospital bed surrounded by hospital staff- but this was the reality for one Texas couple as they tied the knot in the most unconventional way. Despite the oddity of the circumstances, Carlos Muniz and Grace Leimann went on...

The Power of Books

Gracie Fillet

April 30, 2020

“A room without books is like a body without a soul” - Marcus Tullius Cicero. What Cicero meant by this was that he had hoped that books that he read would change and enhance the way that we thought, feel, and connect with others. Others have taken their own spin on it, choosing to craft the meaning as books are immortal. A room with books is a room with millions of lessons and virtues that can enhance someone’s knowledge if you only open it up. Books to me are a way to escape from reality and delve into a different world for only five minutes or hours depending on how much you decide to read. Books can be interpreted or stereotyped as these long boring stories that we have to read in high school or those s...

Living with Corona

Lauren Adkins

Waking up, but not around 8, instead at 11 o’clock. Getting ready for the day, but instead of a casual outfit, it’s sweats and a shirt. Going to school, but instead of leaving the house it’s within your own living room. This is the revised life that teens have adapted to in light of the current pandemic. In my opinion, COVID-19 will forever be remembered as the era when time stopped.   For many, the strictness of enforced quarantine has brought with it much sadness in relation to concerts, parties, and other large public groups being cancelled. But for others, corona has created a whole set of struggles unforeseen by many. This has included many being put out of their jobs, which has made it difficult...

Quarantined Blogs – A look into the life of a teen during the Covid 19 Crisis

Tanvi Nair- Quarantined at Home March 23 One of my favorite things about online school is that you have more time to do activities you like after finishing assignments in the morning. Today my sister and I decided to bake a chocolate cake from scratch(which we've never done before) along with some homemade buttercream frosting! I also like to do other activities such as watching Netflix or go on my phone and chat with my friends because we’re isolated. I like that ...

Occupation Station

Entering the work world in high school is intimidating for many teenagers. From the tedious application process, to the nerve-wracking interview- the principle of having a job while also attending high school is fundamental because it teaches you financial and time management, establishing a strong work ethic, and many other life skills that are a necessity in life.    The first issue that arises is deciding where to apply. Finding a job that you’re interested in that’s also hiring, filling out the pages of personal infomation while convincing the potentional employers that you’re fit for the position seems like a chore. When deciding where to apply, more is more. Any location that even remotely p...

Memorial Media Reviews

Barney’s Brunch House is a local brunch restaurant located in McKinney, TX. I have been there countless times and I am always pleasantly surprised by how delightful the food and service is. It took 20-25 minutes to be seated due to the restaurant always being busy. I recently ordered the classic French toast with a side of waffle fries and a glass of iced sweet tea. The French toast was warm and flavorful and was served with whipped butter as well as maple syrup, however, it tasted slightly of eggs. The waffle fries were crispy and savory, and the sweet tea was very refreshing. It took a bit longer to get served, however, the employees were very friendly and the order was correct. The restaurant was very clean...
