    • Dear Juan:

      I am impressed by your post, “Music as Your Therapy,” because it gives reasoning for why music is a useful method for the process of thinking and communicating in a good manner, more critically. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Different styles of music can have a significant effect on a person’s mind.” I think this is very interesting because every individual has their own taste in music genres, whether it be pop, classical, rock, indie, or much more. They make a person feel different emotions; happy, sad, excited, or calm. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it seems that you have a sense of understanding others’ mental health by providing a method that will aid them throughout their life. I also respect how you would like to try this method.

    Dear Antonia, I am very intrigued by your post “Addicted to our phones” because as much as I wanna say I’m not as addicted, the truth is we all kinda are. i believe that we should limit ourselves even though it may seem impossible for some.

    • Dear Juan,  

      I am glad you brought up the topic of exercising in your post, “Keep it pushing,” because I feel like exercising has become a new common hobby in a lot of people’s daily lives. Examples of exercising include running, weight lifting, and sports. Exercise has also helped the human body gain strength, muscle mass, and burn excess calories.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Although sometimes things may not seem so motivational, push yourself to go and exercise because after you’re done, you feel accomplished”. I think this is significant because people aren’t always motivated every day to exercise. Rather than being motivated, people should be disciplined in what they do.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I feel like we have lots of common interests. I also work out in my daily life and there are days when I don’t feel motivated to work out, but I am disciplined to get up and go to the weight room. I would like to see more of your thoughts about important hobbies throughout your daily life.

    One sentence that stood out to me was “only nine percent of plastic is actually ever recycled”. this stood out to me because we here…Read More
