The Owl

Griffin Nguyen

Griffin Nguyen, Staff Writer

Griffin Nguyen is a sophomore here at Boulder High. He has managed his freshman year and now works to get through the next year. He has a passion for history, politics, occasional photography, and having all sorts of opinions. This is his first year of newspaper, and he is excited to apply his interests in his work for the Owl. In addition to those interests, Griffin likes to ride his bike, go on runs, and attempts to tame his crazy dog. After a year of trying to talk to his friends about philosophy, he has come to an epiphany that he should probably read more books. You will often find Griffin in the halls or sitting in the cafeteria. He has a ton of things he wants to do but often will find the time for none. As listed before, Griffin has a passion for opinions, which usually amounts to a list of grievances, but one stands out, a great injustice which is the overrepresentation of green grapes. Purple grapes are the only acceptable grape, preferably with seeds. A green grape is not a grape; it doesn’t even taste like grape, while the purple grape produces all the notes considered grape-like; therefore, if he wanted a grape, he would choose an actual grape, not a green monstrosity.
