A Night To Remember

A Night To Remember

Aleksander Berg was crowned Prom King along with Leah Jones being crowned Prom Queen. Prom was held at the Annex in Hollywood, started at 7 p.m. and ended at midnight.  Everyone was dressed like celebrities with the tight suits and nails done looking all nice.  

Some students felt prom was going to be lame, but it was everything but that. It started off the night with pictures and a specially prepared three-course meal. The food started with delicious Caesar salad for the first course; for the second course it was a fine piece of chicken and a potato puree; and then for the third course it was a sweet chocolate cake with strawberry drizzle.

But the food was not the best part, the DJ was hitting the right songs and no one was sitting down. Even those who could not dance were dancing. Prom was literally a night to remember for the seniors and it is great way to go to graduation. May 13 was a night full of memories and no regrets.

AP testing officially started this Monday, May 1 and it will last until next Friday, May 12. Many students are probably stressing out, worrying they might not pass the test or get the desired score they want.

Some students will probably have hard time coping with the exam anxiety. Here are some tips that  could be used to feel better taking the AP exam.

Students should most importantly release all their stress the night before and try relaxing on test day. Listening to classical music ten minutes before would help calm the mind. Some tea will also definitely calm your nerves.

Having a  good breakfast will boost you for the stressful day. Brain foods such as blueberry, broccoli, and dark chocolate will enhance your focus and help prevent memory loss.

Good luck to all students taking their AP exams and may the force be with you.

Leadership Cancels Spring Dance

Chronicle Reporter

Leadership first scheduled the 2017 Spring Dance to February 18, however due to unforeseen circumstances it was postponed to April 1.

Unfortunately, the dance has been canceled completely due to lack of ticket sales.

Leadership made many posters advertising the dance, however it seemds it was not enough to convey students to go to the dance.

For the students that actually bought the tickets, their Spring Dance ticket refunds would be available from the student store. Be sure to bring your student ID when asking for refund.

More Life Worth Your Life

Aubrey Graham known as Drake, had dropped his album More Life on Saturday evening. The album was in fact highly anticipated and by most critics come out to say that the album is not what everyone anticipated it to be. The R&B artist released the album holding a whopping number of 22 songs and throughout all of them many find 5 songs on the album the best.

Names of songs go as followed Free Smoke, Long Talk, PassionFruit, Jorjas Interlude, Get It Together, Madiba Riddim, Sacrifices, Portland, Blem, 4422, Gyalchester, Skepta Interlude, Nothing Into Something’s, Teenage Fever, KMT, Lose You, Glow, Can’t Have Everything, Since Way Back, Fake Love, Ice Melts, and Do Not Disturb. Now out of all the songs best ones would be Passionfruit, Sacrifices, Portland,Fake Love, and Since Way Back. The album was mostly Drake realizing he’s reached his peak and he is in a stage of his career where he wants to experiment with different sounds along with flow, that are more towards a reggae sound than his original downbeat feel where you would think about life. The 29 year old artist is still one of the best out right now but this album on a 5 star scale many have gave it a solid 3. Hopefully next year it can be better and Drake can stay in his roots.

Ditch the Date and Watch a Movie

Well today is Valentine’s Day, but I’m pretty sure not every one of you really care. If you are like me, single and have a lot of time to spare, I recommend you guys to go watch a movie. Every Tuesdays, movie tickets are only $8 at Regal LA Live. You only have to take the Red line and get off at 7th and Metro street.

For those of you that are under the age of 17, listen up what movies you guys should watch if you guys actually go today. Remember the Lego movie from three years ago? Well the sequel, ‘Lego Batman Movie’ is out and it’s top on the box office. The movie is based on DC comics with a twist of humor. If you’re looking for some romance, the theater also shows ‘Space Between Us’ a sci-fi movie about a boy from Mars in search for his father in Earth.

Another movie that might be worth watching today would be ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’. It is said that the sequel is better than the first one. The movie is basically about Keanu Reeves showing off his awesome action moves out for revenge. The movie is rated R, so unless you’re seventeen or older, you will have to visit the theater with a parent. However, don’t ever go with your parents if you are planning to watch ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. The new sequel is said to have more of suspense but it won’t be a good idea to watch with your parents on your side.

With these movies ahead of you, why won’t you and your friends ditch the generic Valentine’s Day dates and watch a $8 movies that’ll hopefully make you feel less lonely this Valentine’s Day.
