Tatiana Piña- 

EDM, electronic dance, has become more and more popular. Many artists like Drake, Bad Bunny, and Dua Lipa have collaborated with DJ’s and created some of the best song and album tracks. Since the 2000's - the rise of more mainstream EDM music - EDM has proved that it is the best genre to listen to in the summer. 


“Latch” by Sam Smith and Disclosure is a song that marks my summer in 2014. The song makes you feel like you are living in the moment and all your worries are gone. Many EDM songs deliver exactly this feeling and that’s what summer is all about.

Boring Summers- Sabrina Thompson 

Every high school student is excited for summer. Waiting for the last bell on the last day of school. Every student gathers together and dreams over the exciting summer they’ll have. Most students imagine that their summer will consist of sunny days, salty beaches, refreshing drinks, overshared laughs, dark tan lines, hanging out with friends all day, and more. Then after 2 weeks, most students are in their houses, rotting in their rooms. It’s a sad reality, but even though it might seem depressing, there might be a beauty in doing nothing. Although it is important for one to be social and hangout with your friends, it’s peaceful to spend time with yourself. Summer is a break from the consistency of school. It is meant to be spent relaxing and enjoying the free days. Those days do not need to be pressured with consistently going out every day. Boring summers are not as terrible as many perceive them as, even simplicity can make up the summer. 




A land of indigenous peoples and a heart of paradise. Home to a scenery of forestry, geological curiosities, and marine beauty. Its lands formed by a series of volcanoes, it has risen into a place among the 50 states in the year 1959. Since then, Native Hawaiian traditions have branched into a melting pot of culture in Hawaii. People of indigenous Hawaiian descent are called Kānaka, or “children of the land”. Non-native residents and foreigners are called Haole, even though they may have been born in US-annexed Hawaii. After a century and a half of frustrations against the illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, commercialized stereotypes, and a slow recovery of the Native Hawaiian language once banned by the US government for 82 years, culture true to Native Hawaiian tradition has once again flourished on the islands, which have grown to share it with the world:

  1. honi ihu - greeting through the touching of noses 

  2. lei - worn to signify rank among the chiefs 

  3. hula - a religious dance of worship

  4. mālama ʻāina - the calling of being stewards for the nature they have been given

  5. ʻahaʻaina - the bringing together of people for the enjoyment of a feast.
