Senior Spotlight: Jordan

Our Senior Spotlight this week is Jordan from West Orange High School. Jordan participates in Bowling and Woodshop at school and volunteers at the Mosaic JordanKelleyWM.jpgChurch youth group in her spare time.

Jordan’s aspirations after graduating High School are very unique. She would like to attend Lake Sumter State College in Clermont where she plans to study Business Management. The unique twist to Jordan’s career plans is the fact that she would like to use her Business Management Degree to own her own aerial arts studio. She would like to become a professional aerialist. She also told us she hopes to be in professional shows such as Cirque Du Soleil or Le Reve in Las Vegas.

When we asked Jordan who the most influential person in her life was, she told us “I really look up to my aerial teacher Ms.Jen. She loves working with people and is nice to everyone”.

Good luck with everything Jordan! Make sure to let us know when you make it big with your aerial arts dreams and remember to enjoy the rest of your Senior year!

 

Friday Fashion Debate: Spectacles

I may have lost half of you before you even got past the title, so I will explain. This is not a post about corrective eyeglasses or your cute grandpa with reading glasses that sit on the edge of his nose. We are talking about Snapchat Spectacles because I am obsessed! The Spectacles are sunglasses that record video from the perspective of the wearer.

After launching our Snapchat account in March 2016, our followers grew rapidly! We had no idea if the start of that account would work well or if students would even care to follow what we were posting there but the feedback was wonderful!

Now that we know Snapchat is beneficial for us, I am determined to get a pair of Snapchat Spectacles.

Are you thinking “just go out and buy some then”? Well that’s the problem. Spectacles are being sold via vending machines that get dropped off at random locations across the country. There is a countdown page and once the new location is announced you better get there quickly because the lines get outrageous and they do eventually sell out!

Ok so how does this relate to Fashion? Well some people love the style of these but others say they are hideous.

These are the three colors for Spectacles. Matching lipstick not included.:

They come in three different colors but only one style/shape. Personally, this particular shape wouldn’t be my first choice if I were buying everyday normal sunglasses. However, they could be much worse. I think consideration that they need to be slightly fashionable was put into the design of these but others disagree completely.

What do you think? Are the acceptable as a trendy fashion accessory or simply only for technology trends?
