  1. Keepin’ Austin Weird

    March 20, 2014 by hopev227

    Texas. When most propel think Texas the are thing horses, desserts, dust balls, and cowboys. No… No…. NO! They do exist just not in the majority of the area. Texas is a beautiful state to live in and to visit.
    Austin is one of the most coolest city’s in the USA and is one of the fastest growing. Austin is known as the “Live Music Capitol of The World” because of all the artist and shows that are played here. SXSW (South By South West) is one of the biggest music festivals in the world and people from different countries come for a week to listen to all the music. In Austin you pretty much live and breathe music.
    Another thing is Austin is well known for is the lake. Austin is pretty much based off the lake. People use it for recreation and for every day nessesities. The lake is also used for naming schools. Lake Travis, and Westlake are the two main high schools with lake in them. When they play each other the game is know as the “Battle of The Lakes” and it’s always and exciting, emotional, intense game.
    Austin is a great place to call home and to raise a family. Austin has been my home for the past 13 years and I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Austin is a great city and if you ever think about visiting Texas, well Austin’s always here.

  2. Why Being The New Kid is Hard

    Walking into the the familiar doors of school is always a happy/dreadful feeling. Your friends, your chance to swap stories, and to to change your “image”. But when your nervous your shaking as you walk into a school that’s new and unfamiliar. But you half to keep your head held high and a smile one your face.

    For example being tall is not easy. I am 5’7. I look like an 8th grader to the majority of theses 7th graders. It’s hard because you get all these looks and people asking “Shouldn’t you be in 8th grade” or “You’re in the wrong class,”. The fear -even though you are normally fearless- you feel somewhat out of place. When Andy Biersack walked into one of his classes with piercings, tattoos, and that whole scene kid look people where defiantly staring. But no matter how you dress or talk you’re going to get looked at.

    Also there is dreaded lunch. The place where all of the kids eat with your friends and people they like. You don’t know where to sit. You haven’t figured out who’s popular and who’s not and it’s life or death. It’s the start of a successful social life or the death of your social life.

    Being the new kid is just not fun. You feel out of place with the world and like if you make a mistake the spotlight is all on you. But people well come and want to be your friend… eventually. But at first things are going to be a bumpy ride so hold on tight Just keep going on and know it’s only for a…

    Yearbook is really awesome! Learning about photoshop, interviews, and layouts is pretty awesome to me! I love photography and writing so being in class where you work with writing and photography I think is awesome! I’ve made some really good friends and met some really nice people. I will always look forward to Yearbook because my teacher is amazing, the students are so nice, and caring! And I’m now the Student Life editor! 🙂 I’m very happy I chose yearbook and I will do it until I am a senior in high school!

  5. The Pit

    September 9, 2013 by hopev227

       The Pit was really, really , really fun! I enjoyed snapping pictures for yearbook and hanging out with my yearbook friend! We played Candy Crush Saga, texted people, and talked about school, family, and friends. I really enjoyed seeing my friends from the other middle school and talking to them and seeing how they where enjoying school! The Pit was really cool because I had never been in a Pit before because my old school had to shut there’s down. 🙁 I had a really positive experience and I can’t wait to do it all over again this Friday! 😉
