  • Dear Matthew,
    My opinion on virtual schooling is more on the negative side. I believe that online school is way worse than traditional school. Online school doesn’t provide the social support as well as the authority of a traditional school. In online schooling you don’t get the support from your teachers that you may need. In traditional…Read More

    Hailey commented on the post, Pets or People?

    Dear Oliver,

    I am interested in your post because I belie pets can something be better than people, but I think having a child and mother bond is the best thing in the world. Having a child would be better than having a pet.
    What stood out to me was: "Through the facts of Dogs or Humans it is much more beneficial to get a dog over a…

    Hailey commented on the post, Favorite Word

    Dear Nick,
    I am intrigued by your post because igloo is also my favorite word. I love how it just rolls off the tongue. Igloo just sounds so weird but cool at the same time. I enjoy saying it as well.
    One thing that stood out to me in your writing was ” I don’t actually like igloos. Just the thought of sitting inside a dome c…Read More

    • Hailey, your story is great! I love how you show how much of an impact that music has had on your life. Your story with your sister is great too because it shows how you changed your own lifestyle based off of someone else being born.

    • Dear Hailey,

      I am interested your post because I found it very relatable since I am also 16 and in the 11th grade. I also really enjoy music, I’ve been in my school’s band for six years now.

      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “I enjoy putting my thoughts on paper and seeing them flow like a river.” I think this is Interesting because I understand this feeling but have never been able to find the words to describe it very well.

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

    • Hailey,
      I found your post to be really unique and inspiring! That’s so amazing and mature of you to help out in your family through thick and thin. I’m sure your parents really appreciate your help and hopefully your baby sister will one day too! You’re love of music was both admirable and relatable as well. Thanks for posting!

    • Hi Hailey,
      I really enjoyed reading your post! When you mentioned your little sister and how it was your responsibility to be a role model for her, it really inspired me to do the same thing with kids younger than me. Adding on to that, I really liked how you are so motivated to help your parents when they are busy. When being responsible, people have to give up a lot of their activities, and I think you nailed that point in your first paragraph.

      I’m also involved in music and I think it’s amazing that you can play six different instruments. I play the piano and cello, and these two instruments have had a huge impact on my life as well. Adding on to that, I think it’s really cool how both your parents like music and how music has had a big influence on your family.

      Thank you for your post!

    • Hailey, your post was really inspiring. I have a personal connection. I don’t have a younger sibling but I had to be my own role model until I was about 15 and finally found a great role model. I basically basically had to raise myself and take care of my mom. I was and still am kind of like the parent in my house.

    • Greetings Hailey! I love the story you wrote and how your experiences have impacted how you are now. I was inspired in a similar fashion for art as to how you got inspired to make music on your off time. I still have a long way to go before my dreams are realized, but I can see you’re very close to achieving your dreams. I wish you the best of luck in the years to come.

    • Hey HAILEY i love your story in every way because it reminds me of my life, i don’t really have to take care of anyone like 24/7 and for that i think you are very smart and strong to be able to cope with taking care of yourself and your little sister. I have a 4 year-old nephew and a 7- month old niece, i have to help/ sometimes i volunteer to help my sister with her kids. Although sometimes it can be stressful and unfair at the times i want to do other things, but i get through it trying to do it out of love and a necessity. Music has always been there for me as well ever since i found out what it was, i want to go through with music as my career but i haven’t gotten over the fear of letting myself be known. And i’m almost always told i need a “real career”, which i do kind of agree in because i have a bunch of things i am interested in, just i don’t want to choose one career because that’s what i’ going to do forever. Sorry i got off track a lot but i just wanted to let you know you connected to me so much and it feels good to know i’m not the only one feeling this way 🙂
