Senior executive editor Natalie Murray, senior associate editor Lily Cooper and junior designer Ava Eaton all sit in conversation with recent clients. After the completion of the Parks and Trails Foundation logo, representatives visited the T-Wolf Agency to provide thanks for all the work done. “I know how beneficial it is to be able to work with clients,” Murray said. “We had a previous executive editor come back and tell us how good of an opportunity it is to have this agency here especially if you want to go into graphic design after high school. The people she’s in classes with didn’t have any access to the things we do here and theres only one other LISD school that has a class like this. It’s just a really good opportunity to get real world experience especially when we get to work with people outside the school. It’s just so real to get that experience with actual clientele and how things really work in the industry.”

Carefully balancing one piece of paper over another, junior Ryder Wilkinson builds a paper tower with his team at the Architecture Club’s second meeting. Ryder said he was interested in architecture in the past, but the Architecture Club allowed him to get back into it and learn new things. “I [won] one of the competitions, the first one that we had,” Wilkinson said. “[In the second competition] we lost [because] we could not build a tall enough tower that could withstand the blow of a powerful fan, [but] I still had fun because I was with my friends.”

Pictured above is the crafting club social media page that junior Makena Filippoff and sophomore James Morris-Hodges created. The crafting club was created to allow students to have an opportunity to learn how to create different kinds of crafts and to collaborate with other students interested in crafting. “I love to do crafts but I find myself feeling lonely when doing crafts,” Filippoff said. “With no one to share my ideas or experiences with, it can get boring. I wanted to get a group of people that have an interest in learning [and] doing crafts to be able to have fun and socialize while crafting.”

The movie “Anyone But You” released on Dec. 22 in theaters, and tells the love story of a young couple and their travels to Australia. The movie stars popular actors Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell in the newly released rom-com. “Anyone But You” is a hilarious and heartwarming movie that would be perfect for anyone during the upcoming Valentine’s Day season.

We walked into the movie and impatiently waited for the previews to come to a close. All over my TikTok “For You” page, TikTok after TikTok had been talking about the new “Anyone But You” movie and how it was one of the best rom-coms they had seen all year, so my friends and I immediately bought tickets. Popcorn in hand, we watched excitedly as the movie began with the famous lead actors making their entrance.

The new romantic comedy “Anyone But You” was released into theaters on Dec. 22 and stars popular actors Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell. The movie shows the hilarious love story of Bea and Ben as they go on a first date that takes a turn for the worse. The story follows the two as they both travel to Australia, and cause problems with their families as they argue and bicker anytime they are around each other. The fun enemies-to-lovers story brings back the popular 2000’s song “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield, and it becomes a staple for the movie.

I had wanted to watch the movie ever since I watched the trailer, and the TikToks that I saw just made me want to watch it even more. Especially because it was starring Glen Powell. Powell is famously known for his roles in the action-packed movie “Top Gun: Maverick” and the rom-com “Set It Up.” He was also a born and raised Austinite and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. Sydney Sweeney is known for her famous roles in “Euphoria,” “White Lotus,” and her new upcoming role in “Madam Web.” 

The plot progresses with Bea and Ben going to Australia as Bea’s sister and Ben’s close friend are getting married to one another. After their terrible first date, these connections bring them back together, but not in a good way. They cause chaos within their families and to the soon-to-be brides who desperately try to bring them together as a couple. Bea and Ben eventually come to a mutual agreement to create a fake relationship to get back at their exes, who are also on the trip. “Anyone But You” tells the beautifully funny story of the young couple and their journey to love.

I seriously thought the movie was extremely funny. My friends and I, along with the rest of the people in the theater, were laughing out loud at some of the scenes and I was always rooting for the main characters. I am also a serious lover of romantic comedies, so I was definitely smiling and excited throughout the whole movie. Although I am pretty picky with rom-coms because most of the time I think some movies try too hard to be funny, this made me burst out into laughter.

I really loved the choice of actors for the movie and they played their parts extremely well. Especially Powell and Sweeney; I thought they had amazing chemistry not only in the movie but off-screen in interviews and other promotional videos. Many people online believe they are dating or had a secret affair because of how strong the chemistry between them is. Nevertheless, they did a phenomenal job in the movie and I truly enjoyed watching Bea and Ben’s story unfold.

I recommend this movie to any lover of romantic comedy or anyone looking for a fun pick-me-up film. This movie one hundred percent stuck the song “Unwritten” in my head for about a week or so, but I was not mad about it. I seriously recommend this movie and if you want to watch a romantic movie for the upcoming Valentine’s Day season, this movie would be perfect for you.
