We have heard that everyone struggles with something or with multiple things and they can be small or big. Struggles stem from past experiences or from a current experience that is completely foreign to us. One of my struggles is letting go of situations that have reached out of my control. Before I have come to the end of myself and surrendered it to the Lord, I need to ensure that I did all that I could. I make sure that I dotted all my i’s, crossed all my t’s and if I’ve already exhausted myself in trying to make it look what I think it should look like, I break.
Whether your a boy or girl, everyone takes time to prepare and gets ready for special events. We want to look the best we can, for whatever comes our way. Formal is coming up, March 30 and students begin to get ready to look their prime for this night to remember. The theme of this year is Oscars. Students are able to walk down a red carpet, addition to watch the films created by each class.
My name is Rachel Rodriguez, I am thirty-four years old and I was born in Fresno, CA. I am the oldest of three girls and grew up with a strict traditional Mexican Catholic dad and with an introverted Mexican-American mom. My parents split when I was sixteen years old. Fast forward, I am now a Spanish high school teacher who has four years of teaching full time at Fresno Christian Schools and I am currently a first year grad student at Fresno Pacific University.
A holiday we either dread or can not wait for. The candy hearts, chocolate, flowers and teddy bears line the racks of stores, as everyone begins to shop for their loved ones before Feb. 14: Valentine's Day. It may all seem cheesy but in reality we are at home watching chick flicks waiting for our prince charming to come running after us.
The FC girls soccer program is heading into the postseason with a comfortable playoff spot this season. Last year, the girls fell just short of a Valley Championship and are looking to head back to the championship game with a different outcome.
FCS lifer Brandon Brogan plays in his second and final year of basketball. Brogan is driven to push his teammates forward through the hard times of the season, aiming to run deep into playoffs. He started playing basketball for FC in elementary school, but took a break for soccer shortly after.
Society’s opinion on our personal lives influences our self esteem more than we think. The feeling of “I’m not good enough” and “I wish I was different” crowd our thoughts and take over our view of ourselves. Every flaw society notices in us haunts our minds and constantly reminds us that we are not accepted for our true selves. Society believes that their opinion out rules everyone else's and that we should change to meet their standards.
Happy 2019 and welcome back to the second semester of the 2018-19 school year! I hope students, staff and their families enjoyed a restful break from the routine of school. Whether you have kept your New Year’s resolutions so far or not, a new year offers opportunities for fresh starts, and not just with the grade book.
We all create the perfect idea of what our first date would consist of. Whether it is something extravagant such as a walk on the beach or something more calming such as getting coffee, the ideas girls design become limitless. The curiosity in girls mind build, contemplating who, when, where and how their first date will occur. Written by: Megan LeBlanc
