A little more than a decade of my life has passed in my time here at Fresno Christian. Now, as I look back, the attempt of summing up all of what I learned is simply impossible. These experiences formed my character and led me to realize what I expect of myself in the years to come. In all the years of high school, it was not the mountains of book wisdom or social knowledge which stand out to me, but rather the problems of the heart. Most notably, is the idea that in all things we do, be content with who and where you are in life. A strong statement considering the hurdles which life throws at you, but a worthy goal. When happiness comes, be thankful for those moments. Likewise, when hardships arise, remember the past and be content in the present.

Fitting in can be difficult for anyone. Now imagine having to move halfway across the country, away from your friends, your hometown and everything else that seems familiar to you. This is exactly the situation that Aidan, the protagonist of The Door Within, finds himself in at the beginning of story. The Door Within, written by Wayne Thomas Batson, is the first book in the trilogy that bears the same name. Although the book seems to be aimed for younger teenagers, the exciting plot and relatable characters are sure to keep readers of any age interested at every point in the story.
As the primaries begin and the first democratic debate comes to a close, Hilary Clinton stands at the forefront as the party’s most viable contender. With her well-crafted responses and unrelenting accolades from her supporters, Clinton is now poised to run on the Democratic Party’s ticket for the 2016 presidential election. I was asked by adviser Greg Stobbe to write about what I think about Hilary Clinton and who she is. In all honesty, I can only comment on her superb maneuvering as a politician, as she reveals very little about who she actually is and what she actually believes.
One of the most memorable weeks of high school has ended and the leadership team reflects on the hard work and dedication that it took to complete it. For weeks before homecoming began, the leadership team has assembled together to decide on games, activities and events happening during homecoming. The long process took countless hours and teamwork to create a fun packed week. Each class also had to construct their very own float around the theme of “Vacation Destinations”. On the weekends, students from each class gathered together to paint, build and bring to life their own “destination.” The struggle to find volunteers and a host house made it difficult to formulate a float in time for homecoming.
