Kendall’s Top Blogs

Blogs have taken over my bookmark bar. There are all types of blogs—DIY (do-it-yourself) blogs, fashion blogs, cooking blogs, self-help blogs—the list is endless. Blogging creates virtual communities for people, all interested in one thing. Six of my favorites include: 1. Personally, I’m all for the cheese.

Students use nails as canvas

Students use nails as canvas

The tips of our fingers are so different as to allow forensic analysis. Now students are giving attention to the opposite side of the finger. From patterns to paints, nail art expresses an individual’s taste. Senior Terina Tsai makes color choices based on personality, while junior Stacey Dojiri likes to base them on seasons. “I always paint my nails dark colors when it’s winter and ocean colors like blue and green during the summer,” said Dojiri. Nail art is a process. A student must first cut and clean their nails….

Creative and stylish students are finding new ways to express themselves through self-made T-shirt designs, an alternative to store-bought clothing.

Euceph admired the beautiful language that F. Scott Fitzgerald used. She adored the message…
