Well, some of you may know me as the person who writes the love posts on the “Updates from Gunn SEC.” I was invited by the lovely Utkash Dubey to give you single men and women a little advice to be successful in the love department at Gunn. I will help all you lovebirds out there to find your soulmate, as long as you follow these steps:
Since I was a toddler, I’ve been developing an idea in my mind of what a “perfect” girl is. Stereotypes for everything in my life developed as I got older, and by the time I reached eighth grade, I had a very clear idea of what high school was going to be like.
Written by: Rebecca Alger The choir performed Nancy Gilsenan Hersage’s “I Want to Hold Your Babushka” on Feb. 13 and 14. The show was a collaboration between the staff and choir students. The show consisted of a plot to kidnap The Beatles, a plot to then release The Beatles, and a plot (from the choir) [...]
John Moore’s “A Good Day to Die Hard” ranks as the worst of the now five-film franchise; a completely unnecessary addition to the previous installments. Bruce Willis returns as New York police officer John McClane, who finds himself in Russia this time around in an effort to help his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney), a CIA operative, avoid prison. The film is devoid of any sense of fun and originality that earned its earliest predecessor its cultural cachet.

Flashback to seven years ago, and it would have been hard to find me anywhere but my couch, hunched over and staring at my television.

The Palo Alto Animal Service, located at 3281 East Bayshore Road, is home to more than a dozen canines, felines and an assortment of other animals. On any given day, people [...]
“Django Unchained” Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” stands as possibly the year’s most entertaining film as well as the most harrowing. Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a slave enlisted by the German dentist turned bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Once Django helps his employer terminate three murderers, Schultz aids his manservant-turned-partner in rescuing the [...]
Written by: Utkash Dubey Modern pop music has been in its “love, sex, emotions, alcohol and more sex” phase for a while now. Knowing that, it’s hard for me to believe that music nowadays can even be considered tasteful, let alone respectable. Our generation seems to be soiled with unhealthy surface-level entertainment, and more people [...]
Written by: Lucy Oyer The Original Pancake House: Tucked behind the better known streets of downtown Los Altos, The Original Pancake House offers a wide variety of breakfast treats. As expected, their menu features countless types of pancakes that range from the more traditional blueberry to the more far-fetched “Little Pigs in Blankets,” which are [...]
