Getting a Job before it’s too late

no thumb

Starting a career before going into the real world

As summer vacation approaches, many students are thinking about summer jobs. That is especially true for Seniors, who are about to enter the “real world”. To help with that transition, and hopefully make it easier for students to get jobs, Fremont had a job fair.

Representatives from local businesses came to tell students about potential jobs within their companies.  The list of companies scheduled to attend range from the school district to the armed forces. That list included companies like Lee’s marketplace, Home Depot, and Megaplex. The sheriff and fire departments also got involved.

The job fair provided students with a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the businesses in this area. Having access to so many different companies in one place, at one time allowed students to discover jobs they were (or were not) not interested in. This will help them focus their job hunting energies in the right direction. It exposed students to a wide variety of companies, including some that many students might not think about when looking for a job.

Another benefit of this job fair is completely unrelated to employment. Students were able to receive attendance credit make up. Some students really need this in order to graduate.

Although it is too soon to know exactly how many students will get a job because of the job fair, it is a really good way for seniors to be exposed to lots of different companies and types of jobs, that they might not otherwise investigate. It can be a good way to find a summer job, or a part-time job while going to school. It can also open up new ideas, possibly even resulting in a new career choice.

R.I.P. Club penguin

image1

The news broke on January 27th that club penguin is  shutting down

 

FHS Club Penguin MemeThe beloved game is shutting down officially on March 29th, suspiciously that’s 3 days before April fools.  The game is twelve years old, and with its low-quality resolution, it obviously needed an update.

Many rumors have appeared about “tipping the iceberg” This was finally proven true after sad millennials crowded a server and got enough penguins to tip it over, a trending twitter moment that caught the attention of many.

Childhood ruined for anyone that grew up with the game. Disney, the company that owns Club Penguin, announced that they are replacing the website with a newer mobile version called: Club Penguin Island. 

With all this global warming no wonder it’s closing. Club Penguin will forever be in our hearts and will be dearly missed.

High school students throw parties and earn Rockstar as sponsor

File_000

Jaxon Driever and Hunter Shriber’s upcoming party, Jersey Jam, is sponsored by Rockstar. Their reputation gets that much bigger

Jaxon Driever and Hunter Shriber, two seniors from Fremont and Weber High, have been throwing bomb parties. As teens, they’re already building a successful reputation. Jaxon and Hunter are taking the term “always preppin” to a new level. Although the parties have collided with the school’s look on dances, they have built themselves a foundation for a great future.

 The first party that caught big attention was Jaxon’s New Year’s party at the Golden Spike Arena. Around 1500 people showed up. This was the first party that he planned himself. After that party, he was contacted by several students from UVU, and then his second party Gatsby was born. Hunter and Jaxon then partnered with UVU to help plan Gatsby. Gatsby had 3,000 people come through. It seems the parties just keep getting bigger and better.

 “These are said to be the safest parties in Utah.” said Jaxon. There are no drugs, alcohol, or weapons allowed. Despite these rules and restrictions, that doesn’t affect people’s ability to have fun. To help turn up the party, Rockstar has offered to donate free drinks to those who attend. There will be enough for 4000 people.

 Jersey Jam is the next upcoming party, which will be so big that they have a sponsor. How big does a party have to be to get sponsored? Looks like Utah might be the next Coachella. The party will be hosted at the Davis Conference Center, which should be able to hold the 3000+ people that are supposed to come.

 An opposing  group are throwing a party called Downtown Disco. They’ve turned what started as fun parties into a competition. These parties aren’t like Jaxon’s, they don’t have as many people going. Jersey Jam has not only 1500 college students but also people from Fremont and other high schools going. Downtown Disco is following Jaxon and Hunter’s followers and are blowing up their phone.

 The amount of people coming to this event has grown increasingly from party to party. A pattern is forming, before we know it Jaxon is going to be hosting the country’s number 1 rave.

 They are getting at least 7 DJ’s. They have been taking in local people to get them some type of rep as well. The DJ’s ask to get tossed into the mix to build their reputation.

 To get in the party you need a jersey. If you retweet their flier, its $10. The flier can be found on Jaxon’s twitter account @jaxonwynn. The party will be held at the Davis Conference Center on February 25th.

There will be more parties to come. The plan is to have one every other month.

Who Wakes Up Like That? Nobody.

Social media has quickly helped us forget that none of us have picture perfect skin


 

Social media has drastically changed what we view and experience. Suddenly in this digital age, the entire world is privy to private thoughts, intimate moments, and situations that would usually pass without incident are blown up on national news networks. Some are hilarious, but most tune us into trends that should not only concern us but push us towards change.

Spreading rumors and hate campaigns over social media for some likes and retweets has become commonplace. It is more than petty, it’s just plain nasty.

We celebrate dangerous and illegal activity, retweet cyberbullying and encourage racism. For example, The #Don’tJudgeChallenge was supposed to be a campaign to address body shaming using social media but turned into hundreds of thousands of people degrading those who have acne, imperfect eyebrows, or ratted hair. Spreading rumors and hate campaigns over social media for some likes and retweets has become commonplace. It is more than petty, it’s just plain nasty.

Colleges aren’t just looking at good grades either anymore, some scouts spend workdays going through future applicant’s profiles, determining if they are worthy to enter their university. No business would want to hire someone that would be at risk for defaming the company online, the same goes for higher education.

Nobody looks like Kim K’s Instagram posts without some severe contour and filters, not even Kim herself! I’m not shaming those who wear makeup, at all, it’s an excellent artistic tool and can help everyone to feel more confident no matter ethnicity, gender, or religion. However, when as a society we fail to understand the difference between the two, and then equate what people everywhere else in the world look like to what we see and show on social media, we forget what the human body and face appear like.  

This continuation of a trend that is rapidly increasing in popularity, it has girls and boys alike staring into mirrors trying desperately to achieve this standard that has been propagated not only by the media but by ourselves.

We cannot assume real faces are poreless, baked, contoured and with lashes as long as a mile. The push for perfection and the expectation for flawless skin, bodies and social media has turned us into a culture that no longer realizes the difference between airbrushed and realism.

This continuation of a trend that is rapidly increasing in popularity, it has girls and boys alike staring into mirrors trying desperately to achieve this standard that has been propagated not only by the media but by ourselves.

We are creating a culture where imperfect skin, stretch marks, and natural hair are aspects to be ashamed of, instead of the physical effects of being a living human being. As flawed as we are, this set the stage for some of the most moving pieces of artwork ever created. The fact that we aren’t perfect drove the realism art movement, the portrayal of people in their natural state.

There is real-raw-emotion that we can portray when we aren’t worried about superficial appearances. It can change the world and the way people perceive themselves in the future. Celebrities are often praised to Hollywood and back for being unafraid to post “all natural” selfies, why should it be any different for the rest of us? Let us praise and take inspiration from their scars, blackheads, and freckles galore.

Attention “White Girls”: We’re not the only ones who like pumpkin spice

File_000

It’s almost fall and you know what that means: stereotypes and pumpkin spice everything.

 

Fall is a season that many people really enjoy. It’s the time for haunted houses, football games, hoodie weather, pumpkin carving, and the dreaded pumpkin spice. But are “white girls” the only people who like pumpkin spice?

Around this time every year, stores stock their shelves with anything pumpkin related, whether it’s food or candles. Starbucks, however, brings back their extremely popular Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Over the past few years, pumpkin spice haters have started putting pumpkin spice lovers under the stereotype: “basic white girls.”  According to junior, and Starbucks barista Bridget Peterson, that isn’t too true.  

“Considering half the orders for them have been old men, I really don’t think that’s the case. I haven’t had a lot of girls order it,” Peterson said.

Some people don’t even get Pumpkin Spice Lattes just for the aesthetic, they get them for other reasons.

“Not just white girls ordered them, but a lot of people who don’t necessarily drink coffee because they like coffee, but because they need the caffeine,” said Ms. Eastwood, a student teacher from BYU and a former Starbucks manager. “[They] go for sugared drinks and pumpkin spice is a really popular flavor.”

So, I think it’s safe to say that it’s about time that we drop the “basic white girl” stereotype because it’s not just us white girls who enjoy pumpkin spice, it’s older men and caffeine addicts too.
