Hello, my name is Landry Marie Whittaker and I am a senior writer and editor for CVEYE. 

I like to document and analyze my dreams to find symbolism in the unconscious realm foretelling fate in the future as well as answering questions along the way. Recently, I started teaching myself American Sign Language. I also practice yoga and meditation for body and soul transformations. It is satisfying to apply the skills we’ve acquired to make ourselves better for our society, but in my opinion, relationships do not take skill. Growing a strong, fruitful relationship takes patience, perseverance, and passionate hearts who are up for an adventure. My favorite thing about my life is my 3 beautiful sisters, and we are blessed to have 2 amazing parents who taught us all about the great in the world, as well as the bad. ~ It’s not that bad. Have a great day. 

A fortune cookie that stays with me says, “Forget those things that aren’t worth remembering.”




Hi I’m Kayla Keefe, I am a senior and this is my third year in CV Eye. On my free time I like to hangout with my friends and family. I like to hike, go to the beach, and lake. I work at Valley Bistro on the weekends and after school. My plans for after highschool are to go to college and major in the health science field.


You there! Halt! You need to read this, or the consequences will be severe (Do you care for kittens? You do? Because you’re not a soulless being who thrives on others pain? Well do I have some news for you: I. too, care for kittens, I thought maybe if we established some common ground, you might be more inclined to listen to me). Now that I can safely assume I have your attention, I can introduce another exciting and fast-paced year of terrible literature puns and opinions that no one really cares to hear about. A fun year it will be, indeed! My name is Alexis Stakem, a name that strikes fear into the hearts of literary protagonists everywhere. I still am procrastinating, apparently these last two filled with schoolwork induced stress have taught me nothing. I have, over the course of these last two years, amassed a large and vast collection of ceramic mugs. I was previously unaware of how vast my collection had become until I was forced to reconcile with the fact that there was very little room left on my bookshelf, and was faced with the near impossible decision of donating or put a stop to my fascination with purchasing such a “questionable” amount of mugs. Admittedly, both of these solutions solve the problem of limited space, but at what cost? I’ve also recently acquired a painting of a ship captain playing the cello, as a polar sits beside him, both of them seemingly complacent and happy with their current situation. I believe these fun facts I’ve just provided you with is truly the best summation of my personality. This is my third year writing for CV EYE (apologies for the nonexistent transition) because I find this to be a fun way to exercise my love of writing. Hopefully, you find some hilarity in my attempts to express my adoration for literature through ridicule and jokes that maybe, possibly, hopefully cause a small snicker.
