Cheers

Cheers to the lives of Stephen Soneheim & Virgil Abloh, who sadly passed away. Both of these men contributed greatly to the arts–Soneheim through musical theatre and Abloh through fashion.

It is truly the most wonderful time of the year, thanks to all the festive family traditions and time spent together.”

 

Cheers to seeing family and friends during the holiday season. It is truly the most wonderful time of the year, thanks to all the festive family traditions and time spent together. 

Cheers to all the Starr’s Mill students who were in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Representatives included senior band captain Ella Stadelmeyer, junior guard co-captain Charlotte Craner, senior guard co-captain Sarah Galloway, and junior guard member Jillian Burke.

Cheers to all the shopping deals that come after Thanksgiving. There’s Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. The Avenue in Peachtree City is a great place to find these deals, with all of their new stores, including Souls and High Country Outfitters.

Cheers to all the good movies coming soon to theaters. Those of particular interest include “Spiderman No Way Home,” “The Matrix Resurrections,” and “Wicked: The Movie.”

Cheers to it officially being Christmas season again. People can finally celebrate the joy of Christmas without everyone judging you for doing it before Thanksgiving. Personal opinion: As soon as Starbucks comes out with holiday drinks, it is Christmas time. 

Cheers to attendance not counting toward exam exemptions again this year. Students can exempt the exam in one class as long as they are passing. Congratulations, those of you who already have 20+ absences this semester.

Jeers

Jeers to the short amount of time we get in between Thanksgiving break and exams. Who thought it was a good idea to give students only two weeks of instructions after a week off? We all know that half of our knowledge goes out the window any time we get a break. 

Jeers to everything in the air right now. It seems like everywhere you look someone has a cold, or is trying to tame their hair due to all the static. Do not even get us started on how dry and crusty everyone’s skin is right now. 

While to some this might feel like a rite of passage, for others this feels like the final nail in the coffin of childhood.”

Jeers to getting too old for childhood Christmas traditions. This past week a sad moment happened. My mother handed me our family Elf on the Shelf and said it was my turn to hide it every day for my younger siblings. While to some this might feel like a rite of passage, for others this feels like the final nail in the coffin of childhood. 

Jeers to the stress of hosting family for the holidays. We all have that one great aunt who never seems to get the hint that it is time to leave, or that cousin who thinks it is fun to stick their fingers into the mashed potatoes. While it is nice to see everyone, it sure is a relief when they go home (except for that great aunt who never leaves and is probably still hanging out in the kitchen telling boring family stories).

Jeers to our senior cheerleaders not getting a final home football game. After these past four years of hard work and dedication, it really is disappointing not to get this final moment on the sidelines since the state competition was the next morning. 

Jeers to those people who tell you that “others have it worse,” when you are complaining about something. We all know there are children dying, Kourtney, but right now I am upset and you are not making me feel any better. 

Jeers to working over the holidays. While the money is nice and all, having to deal with all the crazy Black Friday shoppers, or worse the people who miss the Black Friday sale but still want the discount, is just not worth it.
