Congratulations, seniors. After a long 13-year voyage across a proverbial sea of knowledge, we have arrived, and are ready to leave port. We are now more mature, more learned, more worldly, due to the efforts of our teachers, parents, and friends that have taught us to navigate the educational waters. We have learned so much from Mountain View, and our futures seem as vast and as open as the sea. But that is just the surface — underneath the passive waves is a turbulent mystery. We know nothing of our oceans in comparison to our knowledge of interstellar space, just as we know nothing of our lives in comparison to where we will be in our future. Our English teachers told us to scuba dive to find meaning in our essays. We must swim deeper as well to discover meaning in ourselves and our surroundings.

In fact, Arizona is home to nearly 70 AAA Four and Five Diamond lodging properties alone. And, as the temperatures rise, room rates often plummet, making a stay at one of these luxurious resorts a bargain.

With football taking such a predominant portion of the stage, it’s worth noting the girls volleyball state tournament got underway on Tuesday night — not to mention cross country and swimming/diving state championships are coming up this weekend — and just because there’s been an unfortunate lack of ink, doesn’t mean the tournaments are going to lack talent, excitement or drama.
