The comedy-drama, “Amsterdam”, directed by Oscar-nominated David O. Russell was released on Oct. 7, 2022. The story follows along three friends who find themselves the primary suspects of a murder, and have to find a way to clear their name while uncovering a worldwide scandal. Although the movie features an excellent, all-star cast with beautiful visuals to coincide, I felt that the movie was very predictable with lackluster writing that didn’t favor its extensive runtime.

An Afternoon at Amsterdam

After another busy day of schoolwork and reporting, my friends and I decided to celebrate the week by going out to get sushi and watching the newest movie in theaters, “Amsterdam.” Considering the...

From left to right, junior Aidan Cox, freshmen Jaime Corson, Mia Morneault and Ben Akers and senior Bryelle Swift perform in their first PNG production in the Black Box. Playing the game Freeze Tag, performers get to pause the scene in order to swap out with another performer, changing the outcome of the scene in a variety of ways. “I think I did good,” Morneault said. “I was scared, because there werent a lot of people, but there were still people there, and I think its a lot more worrying to me when theres less people in an audience than a lot, because you can see whos there specifically- that makes me tense up.”

The newest Crumbl location has made it easy to pick up the weekly menu. The lineup for the first week of May is pictured: Pink Velvet Cupcake, Hazelnut Mudslide ft. Nutella, Mom’s Favorite and Mango Frozen Yogurt. My favorite out of them all would have to be the Pink Velvet Cupcake. The perfect cookie to frosting ratio easily placed it in my top five Crumbl cookies. The slight strawberry flavor gives the cookie a nice flavor profile overall, and the buttercream frosting creates the most perfect cookie.

What’s the Lineup?

Smiling with her dog Hari for her commitment to the University of Texas at Austin in the fall, senior Aashna Ravi poses at her home. Ravi plans to major in Health and Society, an interdisciplinary program within the College of Liberal Arts. “As an aspiring healthcare professional, being able to get that higher understanding of how people are affected by the background they come from will be especially helpful as I go forward into a career that is very people oriented,” Ravi said. “Going forward I hope that there’s a lot more growth in terms of accessible healthcare.”

It has been an ongoing system, and both sets of students like the exchange. I hope whoever gets my letter likes what I wrote, Sandy said.

Making finger foods, junior Sophie Dawson prepares a charcuterie board for her soirée table. All junior classes had to read The Great Gatsby in class and then held a 1920s themed party on March 23-24. “I thought the book itself was really eye-opening and entertaining,” Dawson said. “But the party was more enjoyable than the book, which makes sense, but I thought I would’ve enjoyed the book more. It was fun to act like I lived in the 1920s. I encourage next year’s juniors to not blow it off, because that’s lame and the party is really fun if you actually participate.”

Enjoy the Party, Old Sport
