The Pick: Middle Earth
Submitted by: Bjorn Domst, Copy Editor
Staff Comment: I would definitely pick Middle Earth so I could just tuck myself away in a hobbit hole in the Shire and not concern myself with the worries of the world.
The Pick: Breaking Bad
Submitted by: Monte Remer, Lifestyles Editor
Staff Comment: Breaking Bad. Need to brush up on a few things.
The Pick: Gilmore Girls
Submitted by: Eleanor Hu, Managing Editor
Staff Comment: Definitely Gilmore Girls now that fall has started—I want to enjoy the rain and changing leaves in Stars Hollow.
The Pick: The Big Lebowski
Submitted by: Skeet Starr, Sports Editor
Staff Comment: The Big Lebowski because I don't bowl enough.
The Pick: Twilight
Submitted by: Caramia Christensen, Artist
Staff Comment: Twilight!! Forks, Washington is so beautiful and autumn is my favorite season + I think co-existing with vampires would be super cool.
The Pick: Animal Crossing
Submitted by: Emma Innes, News Editor
Staff Comment: Animal Crossing. I just want to relax and rest. It seems at this point my only chance of that is just to live on an island that I can decorate to my liking and live easily with low-effort farming and orchard tending. Plus there will be a bunch of friends on there as well. Another big plus is that the Able Sister's store has some clothes I would love to wear. I can relax on my island, but I can also wear the "princess dress" as much as I want and declare myself Queen of the island. Tom Nook wouldn't be able to stop me. I can even set up a throne. The only downside is the occasional tarantula and scorpion
The Pick: Stardew Valley
Submitted by: Izzie Cornelison, Staff Writer
Staff Comment: Does Stardew Valley count? If so 100% Stardew Valley. My woes are reduced to if my turnip harvest is today or tomorrow and if I can give Haley a gift today or not. There is no death just a little money cut, the people are so nice and also I would be filthy rich right now.
The Pick: Smiling Friends
Submitted by: Ernie Samora, Staff Writer
Staff Comment: Smiling Friends bc I would be a big green alligator man with a bunch of other ppl of differing art styles, a world of smiles :)
The Pick: Far Far Away (Shrek 2)
Submitted by: Bella Montalvo, Editor-In-Chief
Staff Comment: Far Far Away in Shrek 2 is absolutely the place I need to be! The carriages, fairytale themed fast food, attending balls with Fiona and Donkey, I don’t think it gets much better than that.
The Pick: Harry Potter
Submitted by: Priya Thoren, Opinions Editor
Staff Comment: Harry Potter!! I’d love to meet all of my favorite characters and explore Hogwarts (and get to learn magic, duh).
