If You're Gonna Be a Rock Star, Be One From the 80's!
Dress Like A Rock Star day is coming up this Thursday and while you might be tempted to go all Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons and just wear a white sweaty t-shirt and some ill-fitting white jeans, we encourage you to get a bit more creative... like 80's creative.
The 80's was the dawn of the female rock star. Women like Joan Jett with her jet black spiky mullet and Lita Ford with her head of curls and her too-high-to-walk boots set the bar pretty high for female rock stars to come.
So how do you channel THOSE rock stars? First of all, forget Taylor Swift - not enough edge. Do a Google search for names like Joan Jett, Patty Smyth, Lita Ford, Heart, Stevie Nicks and Blondie.
Male rock stars, as any female fan knows, need only have a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt with a bandana sticking out of the back of their jeans pocket (Bruce Springsteen - early 80's) Or a black leather jacket and some jeans for a scorching John Cougar Mellancamp imitation. Unless your mom has some serious wigs, stay away from the hair bands of the 80's - they are WALKING dress code violations anyway.
Basically, cool is subjective, but perhaps Nickleback said it best: "We all just wanna be big rock stars and live in hill top houses driving 15 cars..." So on Thursday, hey, hey, be a rock star!
Importance Of Teachers
By: Sidney Kennemore
The secret is out! Most wonder why teachers are what they are. Mr. Garry Hagedorn decided to sit down and discuss why he pursued a career in teaching. The loaded question was, “What made you want to become a teacher?” With that Hagedorn had to take a step back and really think about his response. After a little bit of time this was his response, “I was at a crossroad in my career and I could afford to go any direction I wanted. I decided to invest in things that made me happy. Two of the happiest things I've ever done included, being a boy scout leader and coaching T-ball in the city league. Both were volunteer work and no penny was received yet they were two of the most fulfilling things I've ever done.” From this I was able to conclude that Hagedorn does it for the students rather than the money. He also mentioned, “This is the coolest job I've ever done and it's filled with amazing students.” What really stuck out to me was his last piece of input, “Took me thirty years to find what makes me truly happy.” This just shows how much of an impact we, the students, have on the teachers.
