The Community Gives Thanks

in Features by

All around the globe families and friends come together to celebrate each other and give thanks to things that they are grateful for. The “Green and Gold” staff asked students and faculty in the Wesleyan Community about their Thanksgivings, this is what they said.

Abby Johnson said, “I am thankful for coffee frothers, candles that smell like Christmas trees, Taqueria Del Sol, pumpkin muffins, a neighborhood to take walks in, Michael Bublé’s Christmas album, my car and my fiancé Mr. Holmes. Every Thanksgiving, my siblings and I used to play a game of two-hand touch football in the street every Thanksgiving. We also always watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I think my favorite Thanksgiving food has to be this Jell-O dish my mom makes with a pretzel crust; it sounds weird, but it is really good.” Keep Reading

Checkmate to the Fall Musical: CHESS

in Features/Fine Arts by

At Wesleyan School, the Fall Musical was “CHESS” a comedic/dramatic musical that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the show. The show includes a love story, a scandal and much more.

The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the Reagan Doctrine. Chess addressed and satirized the hostility of the international political atmosphere of the 1980s. The plot line of CHESS was about a woman named Florence Vassy, who is a second to the US Chess Champion, Freddie Trumper. Florence has a really rocky past with her mother dying, her father presumed dead, and she is basically alone with herself. Another man named Anatoly Sergievsky, the Russian Chess Champion, goes against Freddie Trumper in the Chess Championship, but also falls in love with Florence Vassy, which causes trouble because he has a wife.

“When I can’t log into Naviance and the password won’t work so they send you an email to change it but that doesn’t work so you just can’t log in at all.”

“The little ends of notebook paper that fall on the floor, Doritos crumbs crushed into carpets, unfluffed pillows, uncapped dry erase markers and moldy lunchboxes.”

“When people turn on the blinker for just too long then you don’t know when they’re actually turning.”

Ryan Gomes (12th grade)

“People who go 50 and below in the left lane of 141. It’s the passing/fast lane, it’s ridiculous, just go 60. Then, they honk at you like you’re the devil because you’re a teenager even though you’re not the one looking weird in the left lane. Go 60-65 if you’re in the left lane, or don’t drive at all. Come find me if you’re the fool in the left lane.”
