some dating advice for valentine's day
By Alyssa Grammer
Imagine this situation: you buy the best bouquet, and wear your finest button up to ask out the most stunning girl in school… just to get rejected.
Has this ever happened to you? Don't be
upset, for the love doctor is here to help you score the perfect date!
“I would say the best dating advice to follow is to be yourself,” said Anjolie Antonietti (9th).
No one likes fake people. So just relax and be yourself.
When on your first date, you will want to be nice and be respectful. It makes you look like a good person. Plus, you could possibly go on more dates in the future.
A big no-no is comparing your date to an ex boyfriend/girlfriend. No one wants to go on a date
to hear all about your exes and be compared on how your ex did something you didn't do. It's not fun most of the time.
“When a girl talks about her ex it gets me mad and not interested," said Spencer Teets (9th)
Say the first couple of dates went well and you two are officially a couple. A rule you will want to go by is don't rush into the relationship. Rushing is never good because you don't want to
give your boyfriend or girlfriend everything you got to just have them break up with you the following week.
Another great tip to follow is be open minded. Tell your date how you really feel. If how you feel is not happy with the person you're with, tell them. They will have a better chance moving on. If
how you feel is good, then that's great!
The last tip is to date when you are ready! If you want to date someone because you don't
want to be alone on Valentine's Day, that is a sad excuse. Hang out with a friend or
“Don't feel the need to date if all your friends are," said Kaleigh Malson (9th)
That's a wrap for this doctor visit. Good luck getting that special someone!
KRAMPUS IS WORTH being naughty
By Stacy Hueter
You better watch out, you better not cry, and I’ll tell you why: it’s not Santa Claus that’s coming to town this time. This time, Krampus comes.
The film sets around the not so joyous time of the holidays; Max Engel (Emjay Anthony) and his parents (Adam Scott and Toni Collete) are stuck in the midst of Christmas agony, as he struggles with his belief of Santa as his horrible Uncle Howard (David Koechner), Aunt Linda (Allison Tolman) and three cousins all share the house for Christmas, not to mention drunk Aunt Dorothy (Conchata Ferrell).
Finally having enough, young Max shreds his letter to Santa, releasing it into the air and not realizing he has summoned the shadow of St. Nicholas.
Strange things occur in the house, and one by one the family is taken by the ghastly creature and it’s accomplices, as Max’s grandmother, Omi (Krista Stadler) tells of the spirit she encountered as a young girl when she encountered Krampus as a child, and how her family was taken by him. Now, the family must set aside their differences and fight against the monster that is taking the family one by one.
Personally, this movie was not what I would have expected, knowing of the legend of Krampus. I was, however, very pleased with both the execution of the horror and the comedy mixed in.
I will not lie when I tell you that I was cringing in my seat every time I saw anything related to Krampus, especially his minions (sidenote: I may now have a new found fear of jack-in-the-boxes and dolls)
While some parts of the movie were very obvious plot holes that make you wonder the director’s state of mind, it wrapped up nicely, and left you thinking about the motive of Krampus and wondering if he’s coming for you next.
All in all, it was a surprisingly remarkable movie about a holiday legend. So pray you or your child haven’t been naughty, or else he may pay you a visit.
love is worth the distance
