Wow, what an interesting theory! I love your specific examples- they really helped guide your point along. This post is filled with so much feminism without directly calling it out, and I just love your question. Good job!
I found this post very interesting. I too enjoy the simple things. I think you would enjoy this article (link below) about how to live a more content life. I thought the way you ended the essay with “I want all of these things. They remind me of when I was younger, and they emanate a feeling of comfort. Simplicity is calming and neutral and pure and joyful. And happiness, the thing I strive for most, can only result from simplicity” was very compelling and accurate of living a simple life. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but simplicity and care for the little things is an absolute necessity in life. I am a lot like you actually, I am student who procrastinates and has many responsibilities. And like you, if I don’t appreciate the little things in life, I’d go crazy. I think you summed it up well, ” those tiny simple moments that make you feel warm and fuzzy despite the unnatural chaos of our world.” Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I’m glad to hear someone shares my view.
I like your thoughts on America’s foreign involvement and the importance of using your voice.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
