After listening to all of Linkin Park’s albums, I loved all of them, but the one that stood out to me the most was A Thousand Suns. It is a concept album dealing with human fears, such as a nuclear war and the end of the world. This was a genius move on Linkin Park’s part, as the different style took the band to a whole new level.
In 2017, about 3.6 million middle schoolers and high schoolers used tobacco products. Vikings Kicking Out Tobacco, VKOT, has made tobacco prevention a priority at Bryan High and are aiming to stop the use of tobacco in schools.
Imagine Dragons are one of the most well known artists in the world, earning nine Billboard Music Awards, and amassing over five billion views on YouTube. Audiences enjoy them because they appeal to both rock fans, such as myself, and pop fans as well. When turning on the radio, listeners have a good chance of hearing an Imagine Dragons song, whether it would be their newly released pump-up anthem, “Natural”, or an older hit such as “Radioactive”. I like “Natural” because of its haunting verses, strong chorus, and the music video, which is even more haunting than the lyrics.
Bright, flashing lights. Throngs of people. Conversation occasionally punctuated by laughter. The scent of food diffusing through the air. This was once the normal scene in the early to mid 1900s in downtown Bryan. However, as the city began to expand and businesses began moving closer to where people lived, downtown Bryan slowly fell into disrepair as malls and big-box retailers took over. What was once the cultural hub of town became a run-down, deserted reminder of times passed.
For many years, school dress code has created conflict among students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Growing up in Bryan, I’ve always had to follow the dress code policy, and if I don’t comply I have to fix it or suffer the consequences such as getting sent to SAC or even getting sent home. While I believe there should be some type of dress code for students such as not being allowed to wear a bathing suit to school, gang related clothing, or any article of clothing that promotes the use of drugs and alcohol many constraints within the dress code policy should be eliminated.
