Starting his second lap of the race, senior Sanil Desai continues through the course at the Vista Ridge cross country invitational on Aug. 25. This was the second meet of the season and Desai finished in 19th place. “I was thinking about the team placements,” Desai said. “A lot of the schools at the Vista meet will be at districts so I was trying to pass as many people as I could, I’m mostly worried about Leander because they have an all around strong team.”

“Barbie” was released July 21 in theaters, accumulating $155 million over opening weekend. What looks to be a happy introduction with the pink Warner Bros. logo, it soon turns into a movie discussing the serious topic of feminism. “I didn’t realize that it was going to be as in-depth as it was,” biology teacher Adam Babich said. “I thought it was just a fun, campy movie and when I went and saw it I just instantly fell in love.”

Leaning back on her right, varsity tennis member junior Mia Petty prepares to receive the ball with the traditional racket swing. For student athletes, the heat has caused many changes to previously created habits involved in sport practices, but it can also be a tool, according to Petty. The heat is definitely annoying, Petty said. There are so many things that you have to do to avoid exhaustion and it feels excessive at times. [However], I think the heat further encourages me to get outside. [I want to] be exposed to the heat as much as possible so I can better acclimate to being hot and tired.

Script Frenzy returns

     For those eager writers looking for a new challenge, be on the lookout for the next round of the worldwide writing challenge: Script Frenzy.  Script Frenzy is an online project that encourages writers both young and old, student and worker, to finally dust off that idea for a script that’s been nothing but a daydream.  This could be the chance for writers to not only receive experience in writing, but perhaps to even have something to show off to other enthusiasts.

     This April, writers will be challenged to pen or type up 100 pages of original material over the course of thirty days, concluding by the end of the month.  This is an opportunity to write an original screenplay, stage play, television script, short film or even a storyboard for a graphic novel.  It should also be mentioned that Script Frenzy employs the don’t-stop-writing method, meaning that you keep pressing forward and don’t dare to go back and make edits until after completing the first draft.  Because of this, knowing what to write about ahead of time might prove useful.

     The contest is open to anyone around the world who wants to join in on the fun, with no prior experience required.  For those who wish to write under one of the formats that the site accepts but do not know exactly how, Script Frenzy offers a plethora of writers’ resources to not only teach how to write in a certain style, but also to aid writers as they create a script or storyboard.

     And, for the writers out there who just can’t seem to think of a story, Script Frenzy also supplies a “Plot Machine” on their homepage.  Simply click the GO button on the right and the “machine” picks out three random pieces (a beginning, middle and end) for you to create one whole story.  For example: 1) “After winning $1,042 on a radio show” 2) “two blind mice” 3) “fight a gang of marching band drummers”.  It’s that simple.

     With almost 18,000 writers in the 2009 competition, with a total of almost 200,000 pages written, this year’s Script Frenzy challenge is sure to be even more packed.  And, although sign up and participation is absolutely free, Script Frenzy, like all nonprofit organizations, does appreciate donations from anyone who is willing to give.

     By the end of April writers will have finally written that script that’s been just collecting dust inside their imaginations.  Not to mention that for all of those who meet or surpass the 100-page mark will be given access to a page that provides even more resources for those adamant writers looking to improve even more on their skills.

     Remember, Script Frenzy begins today, so it might be best to start planning out that story now.  Good luck to all who are going to or have already signed up for Script Frenzy!
