-Finals week is coming up and lot of people are stressed. I feel stressed when I have a lot of homework from school. Also, I feel stressed when there are multiple tests in a same day. Not getting enough sleep
I am intrigued with your post, “Max Stress During Finals” because I can personally relate to it especially
being a senior and all everything seems to pile up. I am also experiencing a lot of what you mention as I lack sleep because of homework which I can now say leads to my stress. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “It was interesting to learn that stress shrinks your brain and also hurts your memory”. I think this is so accurate as I experience it and catch myself remembering things I just did or learned the day before. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you wrote about a common issue that affects many. And since I personally related to it I look forward to your next post.

Hey Ej, first of all, I really like the picture you used. I strongly agree with what you said about meaning of being American. We are all unique and we try to make things better.

I agree with you that they are trying to protect their children’s health but instead they are exposing them to diseases that could be easily avoided.

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.
