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.

High School Myth Busters: myth #1

     I can remember when I first entered high school, I had the complete wrong idea about what to expect. All of my knowledge was based on teen movies I used to watch with my older sister. Because my perspective of high school was so warped, I now feel it necessary to break these misconceptions about high school in general.

     Now, most people between the ages of 13 and 18 have seen a teen movie in some shape or form. Whether it be 10 Things I Hate About You or Mean Girls, most teen movies have a similar theme. No matter how many different ways you spin it, the most intriguing notion about all these movies is that they depict the picture perfect idea of finding your true soul mate in your adolescent years.

     High School myth #1: You will meet the love of your life while in high school.

     It’s a wonderful thought for most girls, having a super cute boyfriend all through high school and being the “it” couple. But in reality, the average high school relationship lasts about six months and most don’t end peacefully. These movies are deceiving to most naïve girls because it leads them to think that their prince is waiting for them in the hallways. Unfortunately, this is not the case in almost all relationships. Sure it’s fun for a while but then life gets in the way and it ends. The whole reason for high school relationships is basically to practice for relationships in the future. Any girl or guy who says they’re “in love” and have found “the one” are clearly in a state of delusion. As high schoolers, we have not yet reached the maturity level to truly know what love is and how it feels. I’ve seen couple after couple declare their love for each other then two weeks later begin dating other people. Whether it’s cheating or boredom, high school relationships end for all different reasons, as they should. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t date while in high school, but I think it’s pointless to claim that you’re in love with someone when in a few months you might not even be speaking to that person.

     My suggestion: date around, have fun and don’t get too tied down. After all, you’re only in high school once; you might as well make the most of it. Nobody wants to look back twenty years from now and wish they had done something differently.
