Finding yourself on the wrong side of 1100 pounds of stampeding man-child may be your worst nightmare. For scout team football players at Palo Alto High School, this nightmare defines their daily life at practice. Bloodied, battered or bruised, these weekday warriors consistently show up to practice,...

November 13, 2011

Every Sunday morning ordeal with my fantasy squad, Team Brosefina, goes down in a similar manner. (I am particularly engrossed in Fantasy sports this Sunday, as I am in denial that I will never play another high school water polo game as a Viking and that is too much to handle.) I set my alarm to...

At today’s Paly girls’ soccer meeting, the signup paper made its way around to me. Name? Pretty straightforward. Position? Outside defender- duh, it hasn’t been anything else since the third grade. Club? The awkward pause and the hovering pen. Club. I looked around at some of the girls who I have...

In 1849, Sacramento was not a state capital. California wasn’t even a state. At this point in time, Native Americans inhabited America’s wilderness and gold miners were exclaiming “Eureka!” at the tops of their lungs. (I apologize for that extended amount of background, but being the history...

This past weekend, I attended my six-year-old sister Kellyn’s soccer game and was instantly transported back to my childhood. There were the small goals, no goalies (no wonder I actually thought I was skilled back then), the oranges at halftime, the post-game carb and trans fat loaded snacks, and of...

To say this week has been stressful is an extreme understatement. I am sure the rest of my peers would concur that based on this past week of school, it has come to the attention of everyone that HEY, school isn’t easy anymore and there is next to no time to relax.

Week five of column writing and I’m still going strong. Some non-believers thought I’d never make it this far. Sometimes I thought that myself. But hey, here we are! And I’m glad. My columns keep me sane between the stress of college essays, my Shanmom-ness and wild family escapades. And if you...
