Cafeteria Issues

Written by Jahlia Finney, Eagle Staff Reporter

Warning to all that read: this is a rant. A rant against the cafeteria and the “food” they serve us. 


You have been warned.


Lunch can be a very frustrating time for many students. The reason why it’s so frustrating is because of the simple reason that it almost promises disappointment. We may have more choices than that infernal pizza – out of the three, you know which one I’m talking about, the one they never seem to run out of – chances are that’s the choice a good portion of us is going to end up with. Why? Because the cafeteria always, and I mean always runs out of the good stuff. French fries, curly fries, cheese sticks, round pizzas, mash potatoes, chicken, are also things that we have in our cafeteria.

Unfortunately, many of us still end up with that….triangular thing they call a pizza – and this has major consequences. One, it causes people to be rather competitive and irritable when it comes to getting in line. Students are cutting in line, moving like a wave of hungry seagulls. And also, it causes people whose table hasn’t been called yet to masquerade as people whose tables have been called, which then results in everyone being sent back to their seats.

And then when the lunch rush is through, people are glaring at their pizzas and in some cases, each other. Then people start throwing food, because if they’re not going to eat it, “Big Daddy” and all of his associates might as well be useful for something. It’s not like it’s a nonrenewable resource, because they always have more, ALWAYS.

I am not going to ask for the cafeteria to change its menu. I know that the food we eat has to live up to FDA standards. But really, this problem can be simply be fixed by making sure you have enough food in supply for each grade that eats lunch in the cafeteria.

The Importance of Making Friends

Written by by Annie Booth, Eagle Staff Reporter

What would the world be like without friends? Can you even imagine it? It would be horrible, everybody would be at each other’s throats. It would be a mad house, but because the world is filled with friends, we get along. There is much for people to gain by  making friends and keeping them, it teaches people valuable personal skills and how to work with others . They learn that life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. Even really, really, really good friends have altercations. There’s nothing you can do to stop that completely. Friends are what make us. If you don’t have friends, you cant be yourself. You will be insecure and hidden in a shell, and not able to open up to anyone except your family, maybe not even them. Making friends is what makes this world awesome. No friends= no awesome events= boring world. Just make friends, you’ll thank me later.

Spanish Conversation Club

Written by Qualenn Williams And Chan’tel Tillman, Obama Eagle Staff Reporters

One of the clubs that is offered at Obama Academy is Spanish Conversation Club. The club has the liberty of deciding who the president, vice president, secretary, and the treasurer of the club should be. The club voted Calique Jones as president, Manny Walker as vice president, Brittany Walls as secretary, and Samone Rainy as treasurer. Currently they are planning a party, what Spanish food to eat, what Spanish music to listen to [that isn’t complicated to understand], and they are deciding how to pitch in on these expenses.
