I have been running on the cross-country and track teams since my freshman year, going  through eight seasons of training, competing, losing and winning. I always thought I would be able to finish my last season strong and competitively to move on to run in college, but that is not the case. Training ...

Whether it be Youtube or Netflix marathons lasting from dusk to dawn, mass-consuming plates of food, or buying consumer products in bulk, the act of bingeing, excessively indulging in an activity, has become a daily facet in the lives of many teens. While there is nothing wrong with reveling in a g...

Facing the obstacles

I remember my teacher handing me a blank piece of paper and asking the class to write down what we wanted to do in the future. Looking down at the paper for a moment, I wondered how I could know as a 11 year old what I wanted to do, before I grabbed my pencil and wrote out my one life goal: Go to No...

Teens have religious values, if not ‘religion’

December 12, 2014


Filed under Opinion

The perception that today’s teenagers are increasingly distancing themselves from religion, spirituality and the values that they profess, and that teens’ religious knowledge is shallower than past generations’, is an unjust falsification that Religious values are still important to today’s...

After going to an all-girls school for almost 13 years, I have pretty extensive knowledge on drama. All schools have their fair share of rumors and gossip, though from time-to-time an all-girls environment may have a more emphasized version. When I was a freshman I was asked to be a Safe School Amba...

Team USA won its first Women’s Volleyball World Crown earlier this month, beating China in the final championship match 26-24. Not many people knew about the victory due to lack of coverage from the media. The sad reality is that if an all-girls high school like Convent doesn’t celebrate this accomplis...

Every morning as I frantically run out of my house lopsided, balancing my half-open backpack on one shoulder, my shoes and car keys in one hand and my breakfast in the other, my mom shouts like clockwork from the kitchen an always-helpful reminder. “Don’t forget to grab your lunch and take your medi...

By routinely immunizing populations around the world, health professionals have completely eradicated diseases such as smallpox, and have achieved the near-disappearance of illnesses such as polio, yet many adults refuse to vaccinate themselves and their children. Vaccines are an essential agent in mai...

A reflection on food reviews

A reflection on food reviews

May 27, 2014


Filed under Opinion, Showcase

I love food. In fact, I pitched a story about the Let’s be Frank hot dog cart near school on Thursdays when I was a sophomore, and I have been writing about the city’s culinary treasures and a few travesties ever since. Writing about food for three years has really changed how I perceive my break- fas...

Tatiana Gutierrez Editor-in-Chief Before my one-on-one interview for a volunteer job at a medical clinic, I was worried my future boss would not take me seriously since I was younger than most of the volunteers, so I wore glasses hoping I would come off as smart and put together. After I got th...

My first thought when the Presidio Pizza Company sign was put up on the corner of Pine and Divisadero streets was, “Oh, no. Not another below average pizza-by-the-slice place that’ll overcharge students.” After a sampling of pizza, I am happy to say I was too quick to judge. The Bianca is a simp...

Sprinting to the finish and passing the cheering parents and team members on the sideline always sparks my competitive side, which is why I joined the cross-country team freshman year. To my surprise, the coed team was almost entirely made up of boys. I found their physical strength intimidating,...
