A new year means a new semester, and the staff of the Forest Fire have many expectations for what’s to come.

Sophomore Sydney Savage is already counting down the days until summer break.

“I’m looking forward to the summer concerts that come to Walnut Creek. I love the vibe and all of the artist who come,” Savage said. “It’s also a great way for people to hangout and have a good time with their friends.”

Many students are awaiting new seasons of their favorite TV shows.

“I am 100 percent looking forward to the final season of Game of Thrones. I’m rewatching it again for the second time to prepare. All seven seasons,” senior Noah Pittarelli said. “It is by far the best show that I’ve ever watched, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a binge-worthy TV show.”

Senior Jada Caldwell is excited for season four of the television show “Lucifer.”

“It was canceled last year before season three,” Caldwell said. “I was so upset that despite the urging of all of my family members, who I watch it with, I refused to watch any more episodes of season three. I knew I was just going to be disappointed it was over. Luckily, towards the end of the year, Netflix picked it up and the show will resume soon.”

Disney is releasing a few movies this year that people are eager to see.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the new remake of the Lion King because it is a classic movie and has been a childhood favorite of mine. It is clear by the released trailers that the new, live action film brings the old animations to life,” sophomore Liz Wilburn said.

The Women’s World Cup is another event students are looking forward to.

“It’s one of the biggest events in sports, and it only happens every four years,” sophomore Chris Steg said.

Sophomore Megan Wimmer is wanting to carry out her yearly traditions for the Superbowl.

“My family all watches it, and we have fun with commercials during the timeouts. We also get to choose what we have for dinner that night, and we make milkshakes too,” Wimmer said.

Sophomore Sophia Fuller is anxious for our upcoming football season and, “seeing how the current juniors and sophomores carry the team, as well as how much longer we’ll keep the streak alive.”

Taylor Bucklin, sophomore, is anticipating what 2019 has in store for the music industry.

Bucklin said, “The thing that I’m looking forward to most would be all the new music to be released this year. 2018 was an incredible year for music, and many new styles and trends were explored. I’m excited for the upcoming artists and albums for this year.”
