Marcus Williams: Simply Swimmin’

Once a shy sophomore, now senior Marcus Williams shares his swimming story and all the emotions with it.

After almost three years of being on a competitive swim team, it’s finally coming to an end. He started his sophomore year at Davis High school and has loved it ever since. It has impacted him in many ways, particularly in his social life.

“I’ve made a lot of super close friends I didn’t think I was going to make.”

He said.

Those kids he bonded with the first couple days of swim practice turned into life-long friends who are together every single day after school. The team spends 10-20 hours a week for all things swim-related. Whether it’s in the pool, lifting weights, or competing, the team is always together.

“It makes me sad knowing that there’s only two meets left, even worse because one got cancelled. We’re all so connected to the team and the coaches and it’s just all gone in two weeks.”

Said Marcus.

His senior season is coming to an end way too fast for his liking. The State meet is coming up the last week of January and there’s definitely some competition and pressure.

“There’s pressure to drop time and compete well for the team especially because there’s kids who are quarantined. Plus, all the athletes are getting tested tomorrow, so who knows if we’ll get shut down and not even have the last two weeks of the season.”

While competing for a spot at the State meet, Marcus is pushing himself harder than ever. No mistakes, no off days, just hard work. Not many people can say that they’ve been on the Davis High Swim team and have competed at the State meet. We all enjoy doing things we love, and Marcus loves swimming. His favorite part is just being active and being part of an amazing team.

“Swim is awesome, you should join!”

He stated.

Everybody’s known that Marcus was meant to be a swimmer. Even though it’s already been three years, he’s just getting started.

Ways to Grieve – All Similar None the Same

Everyone mourns different things in diverse ways, but is all grief the same in its basics? There are so many different emotions that we put under the category of grief. Anger, pain, hurt, confusion, anxiety, fear, and so many more outside and in between those. Even if two people feel the same feelings, their reactions to those emotions can differ anyway. Someone who feels anger might react by lashing out, cutting off the people they love, doing dangerous or irrational things that they may never have done before. Another person might suppress their anger, often leading to an explosion. 

So, what do they all have in common? In most cases, a substantial change in interests, personality, etc. Things like death, divorce, separation, or other big changes wreak havoc on our emotions. It can bring people together, make them stronger and create more intimate/close relationships. It can cause people to look at the bigger picture, force them to realize what they really value. For instance, when my brother passed away this last year, something interesting happened. His current girlfriend and his last two ex-girlfriends grew closer, forging a bond that can only be created by looking past something that, had he still been alive, would not have been considered possible. 

But the other end of the spectrum is equally powerful, and not so pretty. Too often, pain can drive people apart. Instead of bonding over shared pain, what was once a happy relationship can turn ugly. Fingers are pointed like guns, emotions explode, and in all the pain and confusion, people can forget what really matters. The emotions caused by grief can get so loud that the bigger picture is forgotten. The people who stand right in front of someone pale in comparison to the person they lost. 

Of course, these are only the more common products of grief. They can be experienced in various levels and doses. It all depends on the people. Everyone goes through grief differently, unpredictably, but I believe there is something that every version has in common. Change. When the life a person lives changes, that person changes too. They adapt. 

Whatever the change is, expected or not, needed or not, it happened. We might not get a say in what happens to us, but we do choose what we take from it. We can surrender to the pain, ignore everything else. We can numb it, explode. Or we can choose to learn, to take a deep breath, to focus on what matters no matter how much it hurts. It is hard, and the pain may never go away. But now is not always. It might feel like life will never get better, but this is just a chapter in a bigger story. A long chapter, yes, but one long chapter does not mean a book isn’t worth reading. Just like you can’t judge a book on its cover, you can’t judge a lifetime on a moment.

Fun Facts About The Korean Alphabet

While the language might not be so simple, the alphabet takes the average person less than a week to memorize.

Unlike many other languages, the Korean Alphabet doesn’t have upper case letters. There is no Aa Bb Cc, no fifty ways to pronounce the same vowel. In fact, Korea is pretty strict when it comes to pronunciation. One tiny mispronunciation and you might say an entirely different word. The alphabet is the easy part.

There are 24 letters in the Korean alphabet. Plain Consonants, Tense Consonants, Aspirated Consonants, and Vowels. All that may seem like a lot, but it’s simple in it’s theory. The characters that make similar noises look similar. For instance: ㅂ, ㅍ, ㅃ, and ㅁ are all made in the same part of your mouth. The first three all make variations of a b/p noise. The first, ㅂ, makes a soft b sound. The second, ㅍ, makes an aspirated p sound. The third, ㅃ, makes a sharp tense p. The last, ㅁ, makes an m sound.

Another example: ㄱ, ㅋ, and ㄲ. The first makes a plain g sound. The second makes a slightly hard k. The last makes a tense, sharp kk.

Now for the vowels. All the vowels have a slightly similar look, made up of vertical and horizontal lines.ㅏ(a),ㅑ(ya),ㅓ(eo),ㅕ(yeo), ㅗ(o), ㅛ(yo), ㅜ(u), ㅠ(yu), ㅡ(eu), ㅣ(e). As you may have noticed, when the character has two of the shorter lines, it makes a y sound at the beginning.

These vowels can’t make a word all by themselves. If you were to simply write ㅏ, that would be bad grammar. You can’t just have the vowels by themselves. They need to be accompanied by a consonant. That is where ㅇ comes in. ㅇ is another character that may seem confusing, but really isn’t too complicated. When placed at the bottom of a character block (Ex: 성), ㅇ makes an ng sound. When placed anywhere else in the character block (ex: 의), it is silent, a placeholder. When a word begins with a vowel, you put ㅇ in front of the vowel so it isn’t by itself. For example, the word no in Korean is said an-ee-yo. It is spelled 아니요.

As scholar Jeong In-Ji said: “A wise man can learn it in one morning…and a fool can learn it in the space of ten days.” Of course, learning a whole new language can be very hard. I don’t plan on learning to speak Korean fluently, but just learning the alphabet can open up new doors, even if you don’t need it every day.

The truth about Hermione Granger

Ever since both the Harry Potter books and Movies came out, people have praised Hermione and labelled her as a role model. But the question is, do they actually mean it?

Hermione Granger has been called a nerd, a girl boss, and widely celebrated for being clever, brave, determined and getting good grades. Many, if not all, Harry Potter fans look up to her as a role model, and many will name her as their favorite Harry Potter character.

Everybody has that person in their class that is a know-it-all, and quite obnoxious about it. They constantly raise their hand, get upset when they don’t get called on and smile smugly when they get the right answer. They argue with you quite easily and tend not to back down unless you say that they are right. And if they aren’t? Then it takes them quite a long time to admit it. Nobody really likes them, and if they do, then they certainly don’t like the know-it-all aspects of that person. Even though it’s rare that someone actually likes those traits, Hermione is praised for having those traits. So what is the truth? Do people like those traits? Or do they not?

Growing up, I was as close to Hermione as one could be, without being a British witch. I was constantly raising my hand in class to answer, and mumbling the answer under my breath when someone else got called on and got the answer wrong. It wasn’t because I thought myself to be infinitely smarter than others, it was just the way I learned. Participating in class in the easiest way to learn and make connections, and answering questions was the easiest way as I had to quickly search for the answer in my head before raising my hand.

In my History and English classes I shined specifically, and my hand would rocket up whenever a question was asked. If I was particularly excited, I would jump out of my chair and stand up or kneel on my chair. (I’ve always been short, so it also had to do with the fact that I wanted to be sure that the teacher saw me.) I would get my homework done on time, and even help my friends on homework. I could pass tests and quizzes without studying although I often did.

I even have some of her uglier traits. Refusing defeat if I think I’m right, piping up with unwarranted answers to questions as well as advice. I admit, I was a bit annoying growing up, but so was Hermione.

The only difference is that I wasn’t as liked as Hermione. I was often called a know-it-all, a smart aleck and anything else you can think of along those lines. I didn’t really mind being called that most of the time, as I am the first one to admit that I am a bit of a know-it-all, and I had know-it-alls in my life that annoyed me, so I could definitely see why people would call me that. But for some reason, the people in my life weren’t saying the same thing about Hermione, which confused me.

Sure in the books, she is called a know-it-all, obnoxious, annoyingly smart and she is characterized as so. She was argumentative, I mean she has a huge argument with Ron that results in them not speaking to each other in almost every book! Even in the beginning movies she is characterized as such, although the later movies do glorify her quite a bit.

I loved Hermione. Here was this girl, that was so unapologetically smart, who corrected her teachers and friends, and who was passionate about things like equal rights (S.P.E.W anyone?) and would argue them to the death. Who was willing to fight for what she believed in, no matter the odds. She was who I was and wanted to be.

Later on, I had gained some friends who were huge Harry Potter nerds, and loved Hermione as much as I did and even felt that they related to her as well. They would be the first to praise Hermione when ever her name was brought up.

That’s why it hurt, when they were the ones who called me names like “know-it-all” behind my back. It hurt when they were upset that I was passionate about things like equal rights and wouldn’t back down from an argument about such. They were upset that I “didn’t have to try” in school (although I did), and often gave me backhanded compliments that portrayed such.

I didn’t understand. They loved her for being smart and passionate, but hated me for it? when I had asked a mutual friend what they were saying about me behind my back I certainly hadn’t expected this.

I understood it coming from other people, who didn’t care for the series as much, I definitely agreed that I had those traits and that they were annoying, the hypocrisy stung though. Mainly because I couldn’t understand why they would hate me for the traits that they loved her for.

I  truly don’t think that they’ve thought about it though, the fact that they disliked Hermione’s traits in real life. When being a stubborn, smart-aleck wasn’t  useful to defeating Voldemort, or other magical enemies, they aren’t traits people like. But that’s the truth about Hermione that many people don’t realize.

If you took Hermione out of the magical world, and placed her in your life, you wouldn’t like her very much.

It’s them same in real life too, at least to a degree. If knowing facts off the tip of my tongue was useful in a competition, people loved me. When I was on their side in a debate, people loved me, and those traits. But in any other instance, where those traits weren’t useful to them, they didn’t care. Which goes for a lot of things in life I guess, but why is Hermione praised so consistently, if those traits aren’t always useful? Or even likeable?

I’m not going to tell you that “You can’t praise Hermione, if you aren’t going to praise the smart-alecks in your life” or anything like that. People like that are annoying are annoying, I get it, I’ve known other know-it-alls besides myself, and I don’t really like them either. I just want you to think about it, maybe change your opinion a bit. get the ball rolling. Do you still like Hermione now? Obviously I do, but I relate to her too much not to.

Or, does seeing that the know-it-alls in your life are actually just real-life Hermiones give you a bit more appreciation for them? Obviously you don’t have to love them, I don’t love them (except for the rest of my family who are all huge know-it-alls.) but, I do appreciate them just a tad more after reading this. they still annoy me, and get on my nerves (Imagine living in a house full of them, I know) but i do appreciate these qualities a little bit more and I hope you do to.

Faculty Spotlight: Mr. McCauley

Recently I sat down to talk Mr. McCauley, a marketing teacher here at Davis High.

Although he considers himself a pretty mundane guy, there are definitely some really interesting and cool things about him, such as the fact that he has done some DJ work, and has a minor in coaching and coached a few sports at the last school he taught at. He also has a jersey with his name and number, from that school as well, even though he never played a sport!

Mr. McCauley is originally from Wisconsin and has taught here at Davis for 22 years. He has been a teacher for a total of 40 years.

Mr. McCauley likes Davis because of student behavior. He says that although the commitment varies, people are taught respect, so behavioral problems aren’t really present.

He moved to Utah shortly after he married his wife, who actually used to teach business here at Davis, because she was from Utah.

He decided to become a teacher because he had a really good experience with his business teacher in high school, and he had an interest in business. So he thought it would be interesting to try. “I think there was probably also a little bit of optimism or naiveness in there in terms of maybe I can affect a kid’s life like that teacher affected mine.”

In High School, he also ran hurdles. He talks about one race in which he ran hurdles and knocked down 8 of the 10 hurdles!

Mr. McCauley  decided to teach Marketing because he was interested in Business, but didn’t want to get into the accounting, and actually preferred the marketing aspect.

Outside of school, he runs a side business and that uses up a lot of his time. He also enjoys spending time listening to music (Contemporary Jazz and Classic Rock are his favorites) as well as spending time with his family.  He also has a ’74 MG that he likes to drive around in, with the top down in the summer.

Spending time with his family is something that is obviously very important to Mr. McCauley, as when asked for his favorite childhood memory, he stated that going camping with his Parents and sister rank pretty high.

“Just basically having time spent with family.” is what makes his memories valuable.

Going more into his values, he put an emphasis on hard work, responsibility, integrity and dependability. When asked what inspires him to get up and go to work, he says the fact that he has been hired to do a job.

I just have always been taught, if you’re hired to do a job, do the job. It doesn’t matter if you’re having a bad day, it doesn’t matter if you don’t want to do it, it doesn’t matter if you wish you had a different job, I just was always taught growing up that responsibility, to earn your pay.” He says. Having a responsibility to do what has been asked is what makes him want to work hard and do what is asked.

Changes: are they more harm than good?

Everyone gets excited for the end of the semester, but there’s always some mixed feelings. From taking tests to homework deadlines, everyone’s scrambling to get everything done.

Students and teachers alike are overloaded with work at the end of the semester because of the procrastination and lack of motivation that has been building up over the past couple months. It’s the same story every single term/semester.

“The stresses of COVID have overwhelmed my soul!”

Said one teacher.

There’s so much stress and anxiety that comes with end of the term finals, midterms, or projects. Often, these projects encompass everything students have learned throughout the term or semester, depending on the class. These cause students to become over-stressed and  they feel like there’s so much pressure on them from everyone to get good grades when, sometimes, it’s just not possible. They’re still working hard and they’re still doing their work, but they don’t get the scores they want on their assignments and tests.

“As long as they have everything turned in and done, the grade doesn’t matter to me.”

Said an anonymous parent.

Some students don’t feel the pressure to get good grades from parental figures, but from themselves. Students strive for perfection. Everyone wants to get that 4.0 perfect report card, but often fall short. While there are strategies and ways to overcome procrastination, some students thrive off of these methods and are relieved when the semester terminates because it’s a new schedule. So many kids here at Davis High burn out and don’t have the energy emotionally or physically to do anything and that’s something that needs to be fixed.

This is what we call monotony, which is something that can be changed. While the A day/B day schedule helps reduce the repetition, having the same classes every day of every week like we have been doing for the past couple of months diminishes the progress we have accomplished with 5 days a week, switching off the days of classes.

Davis High School was able to go through a hybrid phase of school days and it seemed to be working. There was no 2-week quarantine, practically no cases, and most students were thriving with the new schedule. Students were given an emotional break day from school and were able to regroup themselves and reset without having to go to school day after day after day after day. Yes, four days a week is better than 5, but it still isn’t enough for some students. They need that day to refresh their minds and have a day completely dedicated to the homework and lessons they learned the day before.

Finding out what works for each individual school is tough, but it’s important that each school finds a schedule that prevents monotony and relieves some of the pressure that students feel. Once the school finds a schedule that works during these unprecedented times, stick with it! Why change what is working so well? Who knows.

New Year’s Hope vs. End of Term Burnout

Every year begins with an eruption of energy as 12:00 am first arrives on January first. Millions of people set off fireworks and cheer in excitement for a new year. With this excitement often comes New Years resolutions as well as a rejuvenated sense of hope for life. Unfortunately for high school students a few days later they are tossed right back into school with the end of the semester looming a few short weeks away with finals and big reviews due in many classes.

Why do we celebrate New Years anyways? It’s just an obligatory date that was put into place by people it’s not even the end of winter as we still have to go through a few months of the cold.

So is the holiday worth celebrating? Is the hope that is produced by this holiday momentary and how can it stack up against renewed stresses of the pandemic and school?

Does one event outweigh the other or do they cancel each other out? The new year can be a time to recenter yourself and embrace a less stressful life. Whereas finals week can be a time of falling back on core habits with many students stressing, procrastinating, and staying up too late studying before tests.

Sometimes this can lead to more stress after the break than you had before it, and with exams combined with a long period before another break it is easy for some students to feel overwhelmed.

And yet every year there seems to be some students who have a boundless sense of optimism and joy. So how do they do it, is it the new year hope winning out or is it something that is based more on student’s personality all year long.

So how does the student body of Davis High feel about this? Are they excited to be back in a new year or are they too worried with the stress of school to be excited about a new year?

“The new year feels no different. I don’t thing that the changing of the year will bring positive change. Only action will bring change. I do think it is significant to recognize the passage of time, but to treat it as if it alone will bring change is foolish. And so I am even more stressed now than I was before winter break.”-Cameron Caldwell, a senior at Davis High.

“I think that the new year is less of a new experience, but a mental reset that we can use as a point of positive change. After coming back from break, I’m much less stressed than I was before. A break during the holidays is necessary and very useful. The end of term is a stressful time but once you get trough it is a great relief of stress.”-Duncan Jeppson, a Junior at Davis High

It seems that some the students of Davis High may be more stressed at the beginning of the new year while many others have been able to adopt a positive attitude and are combating some of the stress of coming back at the end of term. Hopefully as the year goes on conditions will become better and people will be able to be more optimistic and be able to be happy.

Davis High’s Predictions For 2021

2020 has been a year for the history books, with a global pandemic, an election, and hundreds of smaller events. As we enter the new year many are left to wonder, what’s 2021 going to be like? Will it get better and finally put an end to this pandemic and year of craziness, or is it going to be a round 2 of 2020 and have even more crazy world events and the ongoing effects of the pandemic.

For many students here at Davis, the most important changes that might come in 2021 are about school. Questions linger of whether activities like dances, assemblies, and other gatherings might be resumed because of a potential vaccine and increased availability of rapid testing for students at school.

This week the first doses of the newly approved Covid-19 vaccine are being administered to health care workers and the elderly.

With the vaccine comes a hope that soon we will be able to return to our everyday lives as they once were, almost an entire year ago. However, this hope may also be dangerous, it may take months to produce enough of the vaccine for everyone and there are segments of the population who are against taking the vaccine.

So this inflated sense of hope could lead to a sense that the rules are relaxed, but if people stop distancing and following covid guidelines than we may have the largest spike that we have seen yet.

Already, just days after the vaccine had been announced and started to be administered, we entered a soft closure on the last week before Christmas break.

So how do students feel, is 2021 going to be a glorious return to normalcy or another year of hectic shutdowns and battling a vicious virus?

“If I had to guess, 2021 will be a fairly normal year other than everyone waiting for something to go wrong every month. I would like to say a vaccine would be available by February or March but I could see it being May before the general public is vaccinated. The pandemic should realistically end this year unless something goes horribly wrong with the vaccine. School will probably shut down 1 or 2 more times, 3-4 at worst. We should definitely have more dances this up coming year, I would hate to have the juniors this year deal with what us seniors dealt with this year. As far as school policy goes I would not be surprised if schools in general became more aware of disease spread, implementing better precautions against that, but I do not believe we will return to school on Friday this year and hopefully for years to come. Having Fridays off I think really helps relieve stress from students that are usually overworked.” -Alex Arnesen, a senior at Davis High.

“I think 2021 will be fantastic, but we will be too paranoid to do anything. it’ll probably take a few months for the vaccine to be available out to everyone and unfortunately I think the school will shutdown about 13 times more till summer comes round. I would love to open up all the extracurriculars and for the dances to happen!! I WANT MY SENIOR PROM!!” -Marshal Jacobson, a senior at Davis High

“I think 2021 will be about struggling and change. It’ll be a year where we still have to learn to grow, adapt, and adjust! For the most part, I think the virus will be over. We’ll still deal with repercussions the rest of the year, and having to rebuild, but yes, I think everything will work out in the end. I could see if shutting down 2-3 more times but I do think extracurriculars should open up more. Without them, school is really rough. As far as dances go, as much as i love them, for safety, we should try to limit those. Maybe a dance near the end of the year to have a little fun, but not much else. I bet we will have masks the rest of the year unfortunately. Hybrid would be nice to return to, it worked really well (and we’re not shut down every other week). I think the current schedule is fine. But if we add back Friday, I think it’ll only get worse” -Nathan Peterson, a senior at Davis High

“I’d like to think 2021 will be a bit more boring than last year, though I expect with the inauguration and everything, things might start out a bit rocky. I don’t think the vaccine will be available for everyone until at least late summer. I think that the pandemic might slow down a bit, but those that don’t take the vaccine or aren’t able to yet will still be open to the virus, so it will take a bit until it fully leaves. I’m saying now as a complete guess we will shutdown four more times. As someone who is in charge of multiple clubs, I really really want extracurriculars to continue. I might as well be at home studying than at school if I don’t get to see those I care about as often as I used to. However, I also know that it’s not exactly going to keep numbers down if we do. I don’t know enough about sports to say much, but if we can just keep the same rules that we do during school hours (which seem to be doing okay?) and actually follow those rules? Then I’m hoping we’ll be okay. Until we can maintain under ten cases for at least a month or so, I don’t think the school should have a sponsored dance. That being said, I don’t doubt people will still have their own dances. But they can’t even get the student body to stop moshing during dances, and we know people are going to be within six feet without masks on, so if there’s going to be a school sponsored dance the Covid cases at this school is going to skyrocket. As long as these numbers are as high as they are, I really hope we continue to wear masks. While it was a bit weird at first, I think many people can agree that it’s become so much of a habit that it’s not as frustrating anymore. Part of me wants to stay this way purely because I don’t want to spend my last few months with my best friends seeing them only twice a week. However, I understand if we need to go back to hybrid. I’m hoping that the rising cases before break were due to holiday meetups and not proof that we need to go back to hybrid. I think I heard somewhere that the plan is to return to full week, including Fridays, with the new semester? But honestly at this point it could change at any moment. That being said, I don’t mind not having school on Fridays. It’s not as stressful, and, for me at least, my teachers treat it more as a catch up day for the week then assign more homework.” -Eliza Taylor, a senior at Davis High

It seems that overall there is a hesitant optimism among the students hoping that by the end of this year that we could truly see the end of this virus but shutdowns, spread, and cases remain a large threat prevalent in the minds of students for the rest of the school year.

Behind the scenes of Anastasia

After months of rehearsals, cancellations and overcoming huge obstacles with covid-19, the cast of Anastasia finally opened this past Friday January 8, 2021.

Originally scheduled to open last May, Davis High’s production of Anastasia was allowed to open 9 months after it was intended to due to the pandemic. There were many hurdles leading up to opening night, but that never stopped the cast. For the past nine months they’ve been working on this play, staying hours upon hours after school- some nights as late as 10:30 pm. The cast put in so much work and effort into this production and they want everyone to experience this play first hand.

“We’ve worked so hard and I want people to see the hard work and the results.”

Said Brynn Brady, who played Anastasia/Anya.

“It’s kind of just an escape and it’s hard to find a good way to escape for a few hours and just enjoy all of the hard work that’s been put into this.”

John Morley, one of the actors who played Dimitri, said.

These students have spent so much time together and it was time well spent. The cast have all become extremely close with one another and have had so much fun with each other. They have truly become a family.

“I literally love this cast”

Said Kylee Alder who played Lily, the Grand Duchess’ lady in waiting.

They have all put in so much work and time into this play and they’re all very grateful to be able to perform in front of a live audience. According to the cast, receiving a standing ovation at the end of the night is like their reward for all of their hard work.

“My favorite part of the show is the applause and just being able to act with all my friends.”

John Morley explained.

With such a seasoned cast like this, they’re bound to have an amazing show and that’s exactly what it was.

“Two thumbs up!”

Jaxon Brown, a Davis High alumni, expressed after viewing the performance.

This show and cast deserve all the support they can get from their fellow Davis darts! Davis High’s production of Anastasia is showing January 8-16 at 7:00 pm every day as well as a matinee showing at 2:00 pm Saturday afternoon. You can buy tickets at https://davisdarts.org/event-tickets/
