• Hey, Hatou I enjoy reading your poem. Did you know that blue or lavender is a stress relieving color and lavender can relieve your stress also. I like how you said that it helps you put up with school. It seems like their is a lot of bullying in your school and that going to this park helps you to cope with all that bullying. I can also relate to…[Read more]

    Beyond the spaces where pollen fluctuates and mold grows

    • Dear Jada :

      I am fascinated by your poem, “The Warmth of A City,” because I love how your poem described the place so well. It felt as I was there my self. I had a whole image about this place with just your description.

      One part of your poem that stands out for me is where your flow was neat. I think this is incredible because some people can never keep a flow through out some poems. And its incredible how neat and clear your poem is. Your poem is very well structured!

      Another part that I liked is where you used the word ¨beyond¨ or ¨Before¨ as a starting sentence. This stood out for me because those two starting sentences you sticked with made your poem well structured in my eyes.

      Your reminds me of something that I made once. One time…

      Thanks for your . I look forward to seeing what you make next, because…

    • Your poem reminds of something that I made once. One time, I had to make a poem of my place and it was really hard getting all descriptive and keeping a well structured poem and a good flow through out the whole poem.

      Thanks for your poem! I look forward to seeing what you make next because this poem is really incredible!

    The carnival is important to me because it comes around on my birthday and it gives me a place to have fun. When you first walk into the carnival you smell funnel cakes, corn dogs and cow poop. You hear

    • Just as important as it is to be one with yourself , fun brings that out. This is a good description of what it means to have a good time, and how the place around you can change the view of what happiness means to you.

    • The carnival is also one of the places I love. The pictures are nice and you gave good descriptions.

    • Dear jada,
      I am happy about your poem because carnivals were a big part of my childhood.
      One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you describe the smell of the funnel cake. I think this is awesome because that’s how I remember the carnival. The smell of funnel cake and me always wanting to eat it . Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next because you did a good job explaining how you view the carnival.

  • dear Aldephe, I feel like i agree with you 100 percent.
    the world chooses to ignore that we have a gun violence problem. So childish Gambino made this music video he was bringing it to america’s attention to realize whats happening around us because we are so caught up in entertainment that we don’t know whats happening or we growing careless.

  • It is said that 50 percent of the world population make up introverts and the other 50 percent is made of extroverts.  As an introvert I thrive in low-key activities and low social activities. Sometimes, I

    • Staring off with numbers gets the attention of some people and it was a good way to start. The article was well structured and including a source made it more credible. I feel that if you were to include more examples from those who are extroverts and introverts it would make your article more appealing. Other than that you did a great job. Do you think someone can be both, an introvert and an extrovert?

    • I like the structure of your essay and how it is well organized. Introverts and extroverts both have positive sides and negative sides. I don’t think one is better than the other. If you’re an introvert, you should enjoy your life as an introvert and if you’re an extrovert you should enjoy your life as an extrovert. Also, I like the examples that you gave about how you enjoy your time.

  • dear Jullian, You’ve made me interested about the photos you’ve have taken. I’m a lover of rain and nature. I love when thunderstorms come meaning the thunder, the lightning, the smell of the rain all of it. so when i look at your pics I see beauty and inspiration from the place you love to go which is the park.

    Hi Natalie, we go to the same school. I think your paragraph about yourself is unique. I notice that you posted your natal chart. your sun is in Leo and your moon is in Sagittarius and your mercury in is in Virgo. Which Virgo is my sun sign. I was wondering are you interest in astrology as I am.and you sound like a strong person to have moved from…[Read more]

  • The Ocean is a mind calming mysterious place for me. I refer it as “dark as night and clear as day.” It’s somewhere I can relate to as being my twin. If there were a way we can control any element that we wan

    • I really like your post. The Ocean is such a calming yet mysterious thing. Only 5% of the Ocean has been discovered. Imagine all the creatures that exists that we don’t know about.

  • Thank you so much i appreciate you

  • Thanks you for your reply. I appreciate you understanding how i feel <3

    • Hi Jada,
      I think that music is a beautiful way to cope. I have gone through a number of personal problems and listening to and playing music is one of my favorite way to manage my emotions. I’m so glad that you feel the same way. I look forward to reading more of your beautiful writing.

    • Hi Jada. Your story is beautiful. I must say, the story about you and your mom getting closer warmed my heart. Music helps me with my problems too, but nothing helps me cope more than my mother. People get us through life, the good and the bad. However, orchestra is an excellent way to express yourself and it gives you goals. I’m glad you’ve found things that help you when you’re facing tough situations. Good luck and keep pushing through your problems. You’re a beautiful writer.

    • I like music too! I use music to cope with a lot in my life as well. I play guitar and piano, however, I’m not in an orchestra or band. I am in my school’s concert choir. I agree that teen pregnancy is problematic and not the best choice, but something that confused me is are you arguing against teen pregnancy or teens having serious relationships? I personally think that serious relationships are fine as long as no one feels pressured or uncomfortable and they are being safe to try and prevent pregnancy and STDs/STIs. Obviously if someone is in a serious relationship, there will always be a risk, but I support most prevention methods.
