The Indian We All Are


            The Native American imagery that was being used here at East High was never to offend anyone and won’t ever be to offend anyone. The students at East call themselves the Tribe, for a reason. Not to disrespect people or their heritage but to call ourselves a family.  East High Tribe has brought many students together and has turned the sporting events into family gatherings, Which is not in any way meant to be offensive. We get together to cheer on our team and our fellow students. The Native American imagery just further represents our tribe here at East, further represents our family, and further represents our pride to be East High Scarlets. If any offense is taken simply because someone is wearing feathers and face paint for school pride, that someone’s a little soft and doesn’t understand that its school pride, not taunting.


            The Native American was used as our mascot by our parents and grandparents and they found no harm in it. It’s a rich tradition of ancient pride us students have for East High. The Tribe here at East will do everything they can to pass this pride on. We all have Scarlet pride, we all have our very own Indian in us. We all are a Scarlet. The Tribe runs deep in our veins either passed on from generations or born a new. We all know we belong here at East, with our brothers and sisters, best friends, enemies, these teachers we love or hate. We all belong here; we’re all a part of The Tribe.


Miley Won’t Stop.


Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” music video has been viewed by millions and includs Cyrus showing off her new era. The newer, mature side of Cyrus has us all baffled either in agreement and by her side or completely disgusted.

 The “We Can’t Stop” video includes in my opinion detailed, trippy, out of your mind, moments at a party with Miley herself.  With Cyrus and some friends twerking around with giant bears and floating heads the fun in this video continues. The atmosphere filled with smoke and streaks of light. An image flashes of Cyrus on a bed with floral sheet, in coach jewelry, and a white leotard with long tight straps. Then an image flashes of marshmallows being burned over lighters that are propped on a chandelier. Then more images of Cyrus, back to different images of what I think indicates the interworking of Cyrus’s new mind. Weird, entertaining, fun, different from anything we’ve ever seen.

I think you’ll defiantly like watching this video either for the first time or over and over if you enjoy Miley Cyrus or Don’t. If you want your mind blown or want to simply pass time, it’ll be worth it. It’s a good look at what she has become. It also is just a good song to listen to.

Anti-Bucket List

The two things in life I dread most are seeing my mother die and the possibility of cleaning up someone else’s crap.  

I do want to have kids but who’s really looking forward to changing the diapers? And who would even accept money for something so demeaning.

Another thing I don’t want to ever do, is get a divorce. I’ll get married knowing I wont have any regrets.

I never want a terminal illness.

I’ll never want to be taken too serious, but not too foolish either.
