Ariana Grande released “eternal sunshine” on Mar. 8 along with a music video for her track “we can’t be friends.” With smooth instrumentals, melodic vocals and complex lyrics, I give this album a 9/10 stars.

I got a round of applause in the middle of the show for a moment that I am very proud of.”

Posing with their “Featured Yearbook” banner, signifying that the 2022-2023 yearbook is used as an example for other yearbook classes, the yearbook team smiles at the camera. Yearbooks have been on sale for $80 all school year, with 90 left in stock. “Im really happy with this book,” content editor and senior James Sanderson said. “I think other people are going to be happy with it; all our pages look really cute. Issues are a thing, but we have them every single year and we dont let them get in the way. We work on a very, very tight schedule and theres no pushing deadlines back. It’s a lot of fun, though. It is such an amazing staff and a very engaging team. Its very fulfilling work.” Photo courtesy of Paige Hert

The British romantic drama series “One Day” released on Feb. 8 and now can be streamed only on Netflix. The series tells the journey of growing up/heartbreaking love story of a young couple. This movie would be perfect for anyone looking for a good cry.

As I sat in my bed, I held my phone in my hand as I began to uncontrollable sob. I continued to sob, staring at my phone as it continued to play the show and I had only just started the last episode. As the final episode came to a close, I realized that I had not stopped crying for the entire 36 minutes and 23 seconds of it. Images and scenes from the show still fresh on my mind left me in utter heartbreak as I curled up in a ball and tightly holding my cat in my arms and I thought about what I had just witnessed.

The new british romantic drama series “One Day” came out with its first episode on Feb. 8 on Netflix, starring lead actors ​​Ambika Mod and Leo Woodall. The limited series has 14 episodes which take the audience through a beautifully heartbreaking love story of two young adults growing up and their journeys as they meet on the same day every year. This show is a guaranteed series to leave a person in shambles and their heart in pieces.

I would like to say that when it comes to movies, I am not the most emotional person. For example, when I watched ‘The Notebook” I did not cry. So, as I scrolled on Tiktok and saw video after video of how sad “One Day” was I was not phased. I remember thinking to myself that there was no way that this show could be that devastatingly sad as people had claimed. I was wrong,horribly wrong. 

The plot started with main characters Emma Morely and Dexter Mayhew meeting at their college graduation party. Dexter has been a very popular figure in the college and had a large reputation with ladies. Emma was an intelligent English major student and aspiring writer who kept to herself, had a close group of friends and focused on her studies. They happened to bump into each other and had a wonderful, almost-romantic night. Fast forward to a year later, Dex and Emma have stayed in contact, but seem to be doing completely opposite things with their lives. The series shows the audience the obstacles in which both characters face as they grow up and the progression of their both friendship and romantic relationship.

Even though the show left me heartbroken, I really loved the beautiful story that was told. I also think that the show represents not only the incredible emotion that someone can feel for another person, but also how valuable spending time with the people that you love is.

I really enjoyed the choice of actors, I had never heard of any of the actors before the show, but I think they did a phenomenal job at telling the story. I thought the movie did a great job of representing the development in technology and the advances in society as the series takes place in 1988 and ends in 2007. After doing some research, I found out that the series was a remake of the movie “One Day” released in 2011, and usually when it comes to remakes they are not better than the original but I still found the series beautiful. 

I recommend this show to anyone that feels like having a good cry. The show is rated TV-MA and deals with some mature topics, so viewer discretion is advised, but I really felt heartbroken at the end of the show. I continued to uncontrollably cry throughout the ending, but I think it was a beautifully tragic story regardless.
