    Dear Car Companies and Factories:

    Did you know that vehicles are a major pollution contributor? For example, According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, “In 2013, transportation c

    • I love this idea. Writing a poem is very sentimental and may hit people’s emotions towards the topic. Also, with the rise in technology, creating a social media account is a great idea! I do recognize that much of society knows there is poor air pollution, but taking this topic to a new levels what you did. I feel you guys researched this well and using the minds of younger people into account was genius

    • Dear Bryan, Jai’kari, and Latrell,
      I really enjoyed reading your post, it was written well with supporting evidence. I like how you are advocating for our future world and addressing a topic that affects everyone. I wasn’t aware of the statistics you presented about how many people suffer each year from poor air quality. Also, I like how you are using social media platforms to raise awareness, keep up the great work, and thank you for addressing this topic.

  • I am satisfied by your poem, “It’s better than Nothing,” because first of judging by the title I could’ve inferred what it was going to be about. Secondly, I like how you kept on repeating “Is better than nothing” and repetition in a poem makes it stronger. Also it reminds the reader about what the topic is. I really enjoyed how you used the li…[Read more]

  • In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury talks about the hegemonic ideologies (power by a dominant group over other groups ) that books are illegal and they should be burned no matter what. Another ideology

    • What a fascinating take on and old standard. I like your approach to the conflict between dichotomous ideals. It has a Matriz-y feel to it.

    • Bryan I really do like the way you have explained and gone into depth about this book, but more than that I love the slide show and illustrations you have provided. I feel like with those images it helps get your point across all that more. I also found an article tying it into social media today that I think you may enjoy.

    • Dear Bryan,
      I was very intrigued and impressed by your work! I thought you provided a descriptive overview of Fahrenheit 451 and had good suggestions as to how to get rid of hegemonic ideologies. The slide show was also very well put together and provided a nice visual representation of your ideas. What really stood out for me was “When they have the ability to think, they will then have the freedom to make a choice…”. This stood out for me because the freedom to think and make choices is such an important ability that everyone has. I think it is great that you are including information about this since it is a simple yet powerful tool. Reading your post made me think back to an experience I had. I have an uncle who would often discourage my hobbies because I could be doing more with my time. I have never questioned his expertise and followed his advice. However, I soon realized that these choices did not make me happy and questioned myself about what I truly wanted. In the end, I learned to use my voice to question and think critically. Keep up with the great job and looking forward to your future writings!

  • Thanks for your comment. Something that stood out to me was when you said, “I didn’t grow playing soccer like most people so I really don’t like it”. This stood out to me because you are basically saying that you don’t like soccer because you pretty much haven’t played it. So that means you are just going to basically hate on soccer but you hav…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much for reading my blog. I agreed with you when you said, ¨With this statement you prove those who hate soccer for flopping yet like other sports wrong because you show that you are getting nearly the same quality of sports¨. I agree with you because this is soooo true but people don’t realize it. Anyways thank you so much for your comment.

  • Dear, Matthew
    I really like how you started by asking a question and then answering it a few sentences after asking the question. Also in your analysis for your second paragraph which states, “This quote is addressing that in the 90’s, before 1996, it used to be illegal to smoke marijuana medicinally and legally meaning that people who needed med…[Read more]

    Soccer Is Life Right?

    Everyone in America says “Ball is life.” Why can’t we say Soccer is life? Why can’t we support soccer in America?  

    Firstly, soccer is under supported in the US because Americans

    • Me personally don’t think soccer is life because I really do not like soccer at all because I didn’t grow playing soccer like most people so I really don’t like it

      • Thanks for your comment. Something that stood out to me was when you said, “I didn’t grow playing soccer like most people so I really don’t like it”. This stood out to me because you are basically saying that you don’t like soccer because you pretty much haven’t played it. So that means you are just going to basically hate on soccer but you haven’t even played it lol oh well. Anyways thanks for your comment.

    • Dear Bryan,

      I am caught by your blog ¨Soccer Is Life Right?¨ because it truly brings out the reasons why soccer is overlooked in the U.S. and brings out the true positives of soccer that would benefit us all. I also liked how you truly know your soccer knowledge and know where America’s team has fallen short. One sentence that truly caught my attention is, “Curtis raised a very important point, there’s a lot of flopping in soccer especially by the best players like Ronaldo, Suarez, Neymar etc. But there is also flopping by the best players in the NBA like Lebron James and James Harden but people only point out when soccer players flop but they don’t point out when basketball players flop in the US”. This caught my eye because it shows that other sports that get more attention than soccer do the same things that soccer is called out for yet they are watched more. With this statement you prove those who hate soccer for flopping yet like other sports wrong because you show that you are getting nearly the same quality of sports. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you can change the worlds perspective by bringing other things that people might have not thought about into the light. =)

    I like how you decided to write a poem about your community! A line that really stood out to me is when you said, “Me and my mom locked in the car. You know nothing new, another shooting”.

  • Bryan commented on the post, Violence! 5 months, 2 weeks ago

    Dear, Chris
    Your poem is really good. I honestly like your poem I like how you chose the topic violence. But from all the things that happened in Romeo and Juliet what made you choose violence? I think you should have explained why you choose violence in your description but overall your poem was really good.
    Sincerely, Bryan Moreno

  • My poem is about being heartbroken. This connects to Romeo and Juliet because Rosaline broke Romeo’s heart.

    Love Can Be Your Worst Nightmare

    What people call

    Love

    Is just a chemical reaction.

    It hits

    • Dear Bryan,

      Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was, “What people call Love, Is just a chemical reaction. It hits hard, But slowly fades.” because the very beginning of the poem you can tell exactly how Romeo feels about Love now. A connection I made to your poem is how you talked about feeling hopeless because everyone feels hopeless at some point and you told this so vividly that I could see and feel the hopelessness in his eyes. Your poem also reminded me of how some people really do give up on love and how Romeo found his Juliet(even if they died), his true love. Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.

    Dear Ashley, I like your artist statement I think that is a very strong artists statement you said a lot in just one paragraph. Also I like your shadow box I like how you added pictures to it and I like how you added colors to your shadow box. Keep up the good work.

    • Bryan,

      I really like your shadow box! I too play soccer and know how it is a big part of your life. I like the medal and other soccer related items but I also really like the quote you added in the bottom corner about persevering through difficult life situations. The attitude of instead of “Why me” but “Try me” is smart and I will remember that next time life throws me a curve ball. Thanks for your input and good luck to Barca in Champions league!

    • Dear bryan,

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ In my shadow box I put some motivational quotes because when I am feeling sad or down I look at motivational quotes because the quotes I find make me feel motivated and they cheer me up.” I think this is cool because I can see that you really love motivational quotes. I can also see they really mean alot to you and makes you feel special.

    • I like how you presented your shadow box. The way that you represented yourself was really detailed also I like the way you represented your life.

    • Dear Bryan,

      I like your shadow box and it looks amazing! I also was a soccer player but stopped it was a part of my life.My favorite part of your shadow box is the food picture on the right of your shadow box. I also like a lot of Mexican food and I also like the motivational quotes because they really stand out in the shadow box, they show a lot of importance to you and how you would look at life.

    • Hi Bryan!
      My name is Ava and I am a second year student at San Jose State University. First, I wanted to say how inspirational your Shadow box is! I love the use of the quotes—the fact that you use them to motivate yourself when you feel down is great. I think everyone needs a way to pick themselves back up during a hard time. By reading your description, you seem like a very determined and hard-working person. Those traits probably make you a great soccer player, too! Is your goal to become a professional soccer player?

      Great job on your Shadowbox, I really enjoyed reading a little bit about you! (-:
