    • Dear Fernando:

      I agree with your post, “High School Stress,” because it is impressive how stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “high school students should not be concerned about their final exams. I think this is so true because according to the article the more you stress it can cause your body to perform poorly during the finals.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear Fernando,

      I am intrigued by your post, ¨High School Stress¨ because it seems as if more than ever teenagers are willing to sacrifice their overall well-being if it meant they could receive a good grade. The system tends to prioritize grades over mental health so it’s relieving that you brought this topic up.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, ¨I discovered in the article “The Coming Break” that high school students should not be concerned about their final exams.¨ This is because the examing period is when students are stressed and concerned the most. It is hard to put those worries aside when a student’s worth is determined based on the letter grade they receive.

      Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear Fernando:
      I agree with your post, because students shouldn’t been stressed about they’re final exams in school. Stressful could affect our mood and would make you or us losing out motivation to do other things that we want.

      One of the sentence that you wrote stand out for me is: “Stress may also cause the body to perform poorly during finals.” I agree because stress could make me or anyone tired and doesn’t let us concentrated. 
      Thanks you for your writing. I’m looking forward to see what you are writing next time .

    • dear Fernando,

      I fully agree with this post. I agree with the stress that we feel with being a senior and with finals. It’s not the easiest thing to manage as a young adult. I get that college is what is necessary for preparing us but having to stress about it at a young age is not okay. when looking at the other comments about schools only caring about grades and not mental health is very true. They kind of pushed our emotions under the rug because of the fact that they aren’t there to care about our feelings they are there to teach and teach only. i can also argue that some people don’t have time to be regular kids and only worry about school. some people have sports, babysitting, work, and problems at home that don’t allow us the full focus on studying and getting enough sleep.

      Thank you for writing about this topic. i look forward to seeing you write later

    • dear fernando,

      I am very intrigued but the fact that most students do have a lot of stress. Bringing this problem towards an audience would surely fix it. I feel like there should be more talk about the health of students everywhere because they handle so much stress but don’t know how to release it. Students get all the help they need for their studies so it’s pretty beneficial for them to get some rest.

      I think if a student is stress ting then they should be given outlets, good ones because it could create healthy habits. Creating healthy habits in order to relieve stress will improve every students work, like how you said physical activity could be beneficial for them.

      Thank you for writing about the importance of stress students have. I look forward to see what other topics you discuss.

    • Greetings, Fernando

      I’m interested by your article, “High School Stress,” because it appears that more than ever before, kids are willing to put their whole well-being on the line in order to get a good grade. Because the system tends to place a premium on grades over mental health, it’s encouraging that you brought this up.

      One sentenced that stood out for me was, “Stress may also lead the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals,” you noted, which strikes out to me. I agree that stress makes me fatigued and makes it difficult for me to concentrate. It’s difficult to put those concerns aside when a student’s worth is evaluated by their letter grade.
       
      Thank you for writing; I’m excited to see what you come up with next because this relates to all of us that go to school.

    • Hi,

      It is interesting to see now that someone’s bringing up to what I believe is one of the school’s flawed systems. It’s unfortunate to see that schools are expected for you to be a competitive student. Some competition is good, but if you apply that too much, then it’s really bad for the students.

      I do agree on this statement, “They gave some suggestions of how to lessen stress, such as drinking less caffeine and resting more to prepare for the finals.” People at young age shouldn’t really rely on usage of caffeine, having more sleep is more effective. It’s also a good idea to find ways of stress relief, especially if you are going to college.

      Thanks for discussing of one of these topics of young adults’ source of stress.

    • Dear Fernando,

      I am very intrigued with your post, ¨High School Stress¨ because it exemplifies the hardships that teenagers face on a daily basis. Stress can play a key role when it comes o challenges one must endure in order to pursue an education.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: ¨This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things. Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during finals.¨ I think this is true because when a person is stressed they can’t concentrate on certain things.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the topic of stress is an issue that needs to be spoken more upon.

    • Dear Fernando, 

      I am intrigued by your post, High School Stress” because it demonstrates how students are willing to prioritize their school work before their mental health. This is an ongoing cycle that is seen yearly it should eventually come to an end. 

      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me, “ This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things” I can say this is true because personally whenever I get stressed out I can’t focus on one thing due to the amount of worry I have. I also feel like when I am stressed I’m not performing at my best. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to hearing what you have t say next because mental health in a learning environment should be talked about more.

    • dear Fernando,
      l I agree with your post, ¨High School Stress”. Because finals are stressful time for all students, and I think that it is important to know how to deal with the stresses so we can not only be stress free but also pass our finals.
      One sentence that really stood out to me is when you said, “Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals” I think that it is very important that we pass all of our tests and it is not good that we are under so much stress it can actually affect how well we do.
      Thank you for your tips on how to reduce our stress, I look forward to seeing what you write in the future.

    • Dear Fernando,
      l I agree with your post, ¨High School Stress” because any final assessments or projects can be really stressful for students, and in some cases it can really harm some students more than others. I think that it is important to know how to handle stress and ways to improve on how not to struggle.

      One sentence that really stood out to me is when you said, “Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals” I think that it is very important to get school work done but not to the point where we are damaging ourselves and not even realizing. 

      Thank you for your tips on how to reduce our stress, I look forward to seeing what you write in the future.

    • Dear Fernando,

      I agree with your post, “High School Stress” because during finals it can get really stressful and I end up focused on trying to do well that I often forget to slow down. This stress definitely hinders my performance so it would be best for me to try methods to lower my stress so that I can do my absolute best.

      One sentence that stood out to me was “More stress-relieving options, in my opinion, is a good thing. It must be excruciating to be under such duress. A 5-minute stroll is an example of a stress-relieving activity.” I always feel much better after a walk or some other type of more rigorous exercise so I feel like if I did this I would be much less stressed. This could be particularly useful before an exam or presentation.

      Thank you for reminding me of the importance of lowering stress. I look forward to your next post because I will be able to learn how to improve myself in other ways.

    • Dear Fernando,

      i would say that i agree on your post, ” High School Stress”, The reason why i agree with you would be because have been struggling to stay on their grades and still need to do stuff at home making them have even more weight on their back.

      one sentence that stood out to me would be “This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things. Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals.” This just show how much students put so much and the school doesn’t see that and still put so much stress into the student.

      Thank you for your writing, i would like to hear more on your writes

    • Dear Fernando,

      I am impressed with your post, ¨High School Stress¨, I can say that I agree with your opinion. I feel as though a lot of people actually relate to this.

      One sentence that stood out to me is, ¨This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things. Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals.” I think this is important because it shows how negative stress can be. I also feel like we need to take into consideration the people that work at their best ability when they are stressed.

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what you have to say about next!

    Driverless Cars?

    Amitai Bin-Nun favors the idea of driverless cars being a good idea in the essay "Are Driverless Cars A Good Idea," whereas Ashley Nunes opposes it. According to Bin-Nun, self-driving cars will benefit the environment by reducing traffic congestion,...

    • DEAR FERNANDO :

      Your post, “Driverless Cars?” is quite interesting. I like the fact that it poses two notable arguments from Mr. Bin-Nun & Mrs. Nunes. Although driverless cars can benefit people who are disabled and the environment, their flaws will ultimately outweigh these benefits. I would imagine that any person would feel more secure if they had full control over their vehicle, which is why trusting a computer that can malfunction, maybe even turn on you and attempt to purposely kill you, is foolish. 

      Allowing driverless cars to take control of the streets may be the worst thing that could happen. The possibility of them being hacked and causing utter chaos is reality that I hope never occurs, which is why I believe that these driverless vehicles may pose a bigger threat than a person who is falling asleep behind a wheel. 

      I totally agree with the sentence, “ driverless cars are a fantastic concept if they can develop automobiles that are safe and make no mistakes.”. The development of these safe and no mistake driverless vehicles is possible and I’m open-minded to this possibility, but this must first be proven. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the topic you choose was interesting to me.

  • Dear Jonathan,
    “What happened to all the stuff?” is a post that has piqued my interest. because the pandemic has had a significant impact on our life. Many people require something that they have not been able to obtain. Many of the products we require are in short supply, causing a major crisis.

    Your post “Saving Butterflies” has piqued my interest because butterflies are fascinating insects to learn about. They come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and they can even be grown in gardens.

  • Dear Veronica,
    “Women in a Dollar?” is an amazing post. I had no idea they were attempting to place a woman on a $1 bill. If it goes through, it will be a wonderful change.

    “A group of women launched a campaign to raise their voices and demand that women be printed on a dollar, but the government rejected the notion,” you wrote. I had no idea…Read More
