With prom just being around the corner, the stress of getting the perfect dress or outfit can be overwhelming. There’s a few things one must never do when going to shop for a dress.

Be Careful: Shopping online is already not the best option, you can be paying for $200+ dress without even knowing if it looks well on you, if its a scam, if the material is easily ripped and further more. Online shopping can be very tricky since you can’t see it physically and examine it well, so always be careful when doing your prom dress shopping online, make sure its a reliable source and if you don’t want to face these problems, just don’t do it. Play it safe.

Budgeting: Make sure to spend a reasonable price for the dress you are going to get because there is still other necessities you might want like doing your hair, make-up, nails, buying shoes and so on. If you plan to spend money on other necessities make sure to have a budget and stick to it, that way your prom look will go how you want it.

Make Appointments Not Walk-ins: Appointments are necessary you do not want to end up going late or behind schedule. Unless you’re okay with spending hours in one place, I suggest you make the appointment. Walk-ins are too time consuming.

Be Confident: If you like a dress and feel like its right for you get it. Don’t wear a dress because its on “trend” or because someone else told you to, get it because you love it. Even if you somehow end up having the same dress as someone else at least you know you owned the look.

Avoid Wearing The Same Dress: If you are terrified at the thought of wearing the same exact dress as someone follow @hwoodprom2018 to see which dresses you should avoid getting in order to not have prom nightmare. You can also anonymously submit your dress in order for other Hollywood Seniors to avoid getting the same one.

Overall wear what is best for you and make sure your prom goes as you want it. Have fun at prom and hope this helps lessen the stress that revolves around it.

After a long successful season for the boys Varsity soccer team who won league they drastically lost in the second round of playoffs on Wednesday Feb 21. During their match with Smith Tech High school, Varsity Boys lost 1-0 during the 20 minute overtime. They were eliminated from the playoffs once the goal was made marking 7 minutes left on the clock to make a comeback. After Smith Tech made the unfortunate goal, player Aldair Hernandez, who made two goals had them called back as a non goal because they were claiming Aldair pushed the opposing player and the second goal was not met in the net. If it were not for the loss they would still be on their journey towards the City Championship game. Most of the Varsity Team players were seniors, having 12 players left to continue the legacy.

Varsity player Andrew Herrera said “ The game was rigged, the tension was there and to think we could have gone farther, but standing at the field as the game was called to an end I felt a rush of emotions knowing it was the last time I played for the school.” Having a huge crowd during the game, parents, friends and students came together to support the players. Even though the game was lost the pride was not.

Varsity and JV soccer players are excited due to the last win they got against Mendez with a score of 0-1. Having it come to an end, they remain undefeated and marking today a special day for the Varsity team.

It has been a long journey for the team. They have kept an undefeated record throughout the whole season. It has been 10 years since the boys soccer team has won league champs and today may define whether they win that title or not, including a banner.

Today, the boys play against Roybal High at their last home game. Along with it being their last home game a special tribute to the seniors on the team will be given considering it is senior night. Winning this game is a step forward into playoffs against RFK and Belmont, both being away games.

One of the varsity players Aldair Hernandez, NMA senior said, “ I feel blessed for having the chance to play for Hollywood soccer team and nervous for what might go down but at the end of the day Im happy for what my team has achieved.”

The undefeated  Hollywood High Varsity team will continue to chase towards the top spot in the league, leading them to playoffs and finish off with a CIF City Championship win.

NMA Juniors Present to Professional Animators

Today marks a significant day for NMA history, as juniors finalize their project and present at Columbia College Hollywood. When becoming a junior in NMA, students are assigned a team and topic that will be graded and counted for three classes that are English, History and Digital Computers. They spend a whole semester creating an animation and gathering evidence to pitch their argument. The judges were not only Hollywood High School teachers but professional animators as well.

NMA teachers teach their students to always find solutions to obstacles they face. For Example, due to the recent fires in Ventura City, the juniors were unable to present at  Colombia College and were told their presentation will be held at school during periods two, three and four. It was a sudden change, but the students were able to adjust.

It is definitely a day that will be memorable for the juniors, considering the problems they did not expect. But congratulations to all NMA juniors that finally reached one of their biggest milestones.
