The winter season is just around the corner. But the snow is already here (71.7 inches as of Dec. 19). As Jamesville-DeWitt High School students we live in Central New York (a.k.a. America's Snowbelt). So with several feet of that white stuff stacked outside, what are we doing indoors this season to keep busy? What new movies, video games, books, and music are drawing people's attentions?
Sophomore Max Mastine says that he will be "spending most of my time on COD (Call Of Duty)." COD has swept through the halls of J-DHS plaguing everyone in its path. Junior Ed Campbell says "It's so addicting. I tell myself I'll only play an hour, next thing I know it's been four hours, so I give up trying to stop myself from playing." Junior David Barletta says COD is the greatest invention since sliced bread, however it has put a "serious strain" on his homework time.
Sophomore Natalie Frank says she is looking forward to buying the newest film installment of the "Twilight" Saga: "Eclipse." Junior Katherine Sherwood says that she bought the movie when it was released on DVD Dec. 4 and has already watched it three times.
Senior Zach Marsh says he's going to see "The Town" because a lot of his friends have recommended it.
Another highly anticipated movie release in theaters currently is "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1." Freshman Taylor Riley says the movie was "awesome" and she hopes to watch it again before it leaves theaters. Anyone that hasn't watched it yet "needs to" because it is the "greatest movie this year" says Riley. Senior Doug Day says he is already excited for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two" set for release in movie theaters July 5.
Another good bet in the movie theaters currently is "The Fighter" starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. Freshman Bryce Nandal says that "I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. There's a lot of action, and a good moral to the story," says Nandal.
Junior Taylor Schoen says she wants to buy the newest Black Eyed Peas album, "The Beginning". Schoen says she also loved the Sean Kingston concert in Liverpool on New Year's Eve and can't wait to go to buy his newest album.
Junior Johanna Santos says she would like to get the New York Times bestsellers "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played With Fire."
Freshman Maki Mandelis says that he is looking forward to "going out and getting the new iPad". Junior Erik Davis has had the iPad for a month now and says, "it was a great investment" adding that "it's much easier to use then a computer. It cuts the time it would normally take to do my homework in half."
If you feel too confined to your house this holiday season, don't be. The SPOT, located in Shoppingtown Mall, is a "great place to just hang out and meet new people," says freshman Samantha Mignacca.
Senior Zach Kaufman says, "I'm going to chill at home with a cup of joe."
No matter what you do this winter, enjoy.
