"Donde esta Donda?" and "Did it drop?" were two of the questions I heard the most over the course of the past month (both of which were often followed by laughs). Granted, I did not help myself by posting incessant updates like I was an insider about the album on my Instagram story. Those questions all came to a...
With popular movies, games, and shows like Army of the Dead, Resident Evil, or The Walking Dead there is currently no shortage of zombie media in 2021. With such an over saturation, it is hard for a zombie film to be fresh and novel. This is where Train to Busan comes in and adds a fresh look on the zombie formula. Plot The...
With the world becoming more and more digital, apps and devices are becoming more readily available to digitize things and make everything available online. While I still love the good old pen and paper, there are just so many cool and interesting applications and programs to streamline organization and make everything more compact (which I'm sure no one would...
On Friday April 9th, during all lunch periods, a sourdough starter will be available for pick-up with a recipe to make sourdough bread. Sage spent the last month creating "Blessed Sourdough Starters" for every teacher as a sign of thanks for their hard work.

Shaka King's Judas and the Black Messiah is an incredible film with outstanding performances from LaKeith Stanfield, Daniel Kaluuya, and Jesse Plemons. In case you are unaware, Judas and the Black Messiah follows the true story of William O'Neal...
Reddit has been a place where communities come together to share their opinions/expressions about various topics. It is one of the more underground social media platforms where you can find discussions from years ago about the most random, oddly specific topic. But no one has really given the platform as much credit as it truly deserves, especially with the...
Today is Valentine's Day, 2021, and it is currently snowing outside of my home as we speak. It is a light drizzle, and Texas isn't the place where snow comes, so it's a very special time and a very special occasion. Now, as everyone stays home in the warmth and comfort of their fire place, we all look to...
