  1. Team 3

    April 15, 2014 by hopev227

    Yesterday I got the worlds worse news, a close family friend had passed away after injuries sustained to the head after being hit by a car. He was 19. I found out before the Pre-UIL choir concert. And I broke down. He had been so full of life and so loving and caring. He was a lacrosse player at Westlake before he graduated in 2012. He was a midfielder and one of the best ones we have ever had. Last night I didn’t think I could perform. I was devastated. But someone told me that my choir is my team and he was on a lacrosse team. You half to show up for the team and do your best. They said this is what he would’ve wanted. As hard as it was, I did it the whole time just repeating those words. But you can’t give up. Even in the wake of tragedy, you can’t give up. You half to keep going and do your best. You half to show up for your team even if it’s during a time of mourning the lose of someone. His death had taught me 3 things and ironically his lacrosse number was three. The three things I’ve learned are: 1) you half to show up for your team 2) you have to set a goal and 3) no matter how hard it is you half to try and conquer that goal. Life is hard, but no matter how hard it gets, you have to show up for your team and you half to be their for your team. You half to stay strong and no matter what, you can’t give up.

  2. Keepin’ Austin Weird

    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.
