• Taniya, I love all of the points you make. I think I can bring an interesting side to this discussion being a male. I strongly agree with your argument, and can even attest to the fact that many body parts that are banned to show, theoretically are not distracting to most men. The double standards for men and women in schools is horrific and needs…[Read more]

  • Birkenstocks, Vineyard Vines, Uggs, Iphones and every other expensive brands have become the typical accessories. But why? The answer is very unclear, however it does have something to do with societal pressures,

    • I am intrigued by your post because it is a phenomenon that a person can actually observe around society. In my opinion it is okay to treat yourself once in awhile. One can buy designer clothes, tickets for a vacation, a car, or anything that makes him/her happy without the intention of pretending to be someone else. But overstepping and doing things that you may not be capable of is a different story. I agree that too much can actually misdirect a person to ‘who’ he/she actually is.

      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “Appearance is commonly followed by the idea of reality, as one can not exist without the other”. I think this is interesting because it is the physical aspect that most of the people around you can see. I do think that simplicity is better than too much luxury.

      Regards,

    • Hi Ethan!!
      As soon as I started reading this I was intrigued. When you said “When people go to a higher end event they might rent a tuxedo, or buy new shoes, or a watch”,right away I was like wait this is so true and I’ve never really thought about why exactly people do this but it makes so much more sense when you explain it. I liked how you had direct quotes from your book to help explain your points. Also the way you related to your audience with real life things,really draws people into your writing.

  • Good work Abi!
    I really appreciate all your points but I specifically loved the way you thought of sexism as a two way street, WHhile acts of sexisim are dominated by men, it is not fair for Women to desire equality in some aspects but not ALL aspects. While Mason does bring up an interesting point about the history of the confederate flag, it is…[Read more]

  • Jesus this a phenomenal letter and very well crafted. I liked all of your goals for the future and could not agree with them. My grandma immigrated here from Mexico, and Grandpa from Puerto Rico so as a second generation immigrant I can also attest that everyone just wants to do something good and deserve a place here, just as much as those born…[Read more]

    WOW Sage! This piece of writing is original, thought provoking and amazing! I love the fact that you thought so much in depth about what this word means. It is crazy to think that when these four random letters come together that it can create so much feeling inside of a person. However I do believe that sometimes the word love is tossed around…[Read more]
