    • Hi Andre
      I really enjoyed reading your poem. I too am a soccer goalie. When reading the poem I remember many times when I was in a game that was close or a game that was very important. My dad has this saying that as a goalie you’re either the hero or the on who let everyone down. Which is very true. Do you ever feel like you have let the team down? I know I have. Great poem!

    I also think that school starts too early and if they could start it later then a lot more people would pay attention. Also if school started later people could go get breakfast so people don’t go to school hungry.

  • Hi Ryan,
    I really liked your poem. Thanks for sharing it.

  • I agree that our childhood affects our confidence greatly, I had a good childhood and I think that helped my confidence a lot. I also agree with your statement of look good feel good because when i wear a suit i feel a lot better then when i’m wearing my normal clothes.

    I can relate to that feeling as well. Sometimes I feel like i’m being followed by someone. I bet the book will have a twist and somebody will be following him.

  • I definitely understand this. I go out to eat way more than I should and its not because I cant find any food in my house. I think the main reason more and more people are going out too eat is because they are lazy. You are totally right about the child obesity being a problem and I think people need too stop going out to eat or put a limit on how…[Read more]

  • Valeria,
    I am very sorry to hear that you have to drop out. I wish you the best in finding a job and all of the responsibilities that you will take on. Try to find job that you really like and work your way up from the bottom. Good luck, i hope you can tell younger students your story and persuade them to make good choices.

    Good Luck,
    Andre

    • Dear Andre and other commenters,
      Hello! My name is Olivia and I am a research student at the University of Nebraska. I am wondering if you’d be willing to answer just a couple questions I had for you regarding youth voices? Your responses would help me further a research analysis of this community and would remain anonymous. Answering the questions would take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Let me know if you are interested by messaging me on this site!

    • this article told me about the fun of camping and the dangers of animals. it was a good story to tell. I didn’t know that raccoons could swarm camps so fast. I think fishing is also kind of cool. I want to go fishing also some day. but I don’t really like to kill animals.

    • Dear Andre,

      I am interested with your post, “Stranger Than Fiction,” because it was a fun and interesting story about a fun camping trip. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We were trying to find out who left the food open and I remembered that I was super hungry in the morning and ate a lot and I guess I didn’t seal it well.” I think this is relatable because whenever I grab something from the fridge when I’m hungry, I forget to close the fridge door properly. Another sentence that I liked was: “I had a ton of fun when we would fish,hammock, and even take hikes around the woods.” This stood out for me because it sounds really fun and I don’t really have time to have that kind of fun anymore.Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time, we got ice cream from Costco. It was only 2 days after we got the ice cream that my brother went to get a few form the fridge. He was so excited and hungry, he didn’t close the fridge properly. There were a lot of ice creams left, and they all melted because the fridge wasn’t closed properly. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your life sounds quite interesting, since you went camping with friends and had fun, hiking and stuff.

    • Andre,
      Fascinating story. I camp with my family during the summer months and we too have been victims of raccoon and other wild animal plundering. One fear always held central is that bears will smell food and come to our campsite. Thus, we usually keep food in a bear box or in the car. Do you do this? Why or why not? Interesting post!

    • Dear Andre,

      This is a hilarious story! It reminded me of one time when I went camping for my tenth birthday and my dad had put my birthday cake in the backseat of his truck until we were going to eat it the following morning. We went to bed and everybody woke up about an hour later to a group of raccoons eating the chocolate and marshmallows we had left by the fire. Then in the morning we went to get the cake and a raccoon had snuck through the cracked window of the truck and ate it! So I feel like this story could totally be true.
      Thanks for sharing!
