• Gabby,
    your poem really touched me, just like how logics lyrics touch me, it’s DEEP…it shows that you should never quit on yourself and to keep moving on no matter what anyone says to you, to always show your emotions and never hide them just let it out. #speakyourvoice #RATTPACK

    I enjoyed reading your memoir, you have a lot of emotions going on and you were brave enough to talk about it and sharing it with an audience it’s probably hard for you that you can’t see your dad as much and that sucks because you really wanted to spend time with him, the part when you said that you accepted his apology it shows a strong…[Read more]

    I’m picky as hell

    And i couldn’t decide.


    Sitting in the vans store..


    • Dear Kadijah,
      I like how you wrote about vans and how you basically told a little story but turned it into a poem. Keep writing, good job.

    • Kadijah,
      I liked your story about how you had a difficult time deciding which color of vans to get. I think it has sort of an underlying message, whether it was intentional or not, that sometimes we make decisions and regret them later on. And your solution to this was to ‘buy both pair’ or try out each solution which I think is a good message!

    • Kadijah,
      I liked how at the end you took both colored shoes home. This has happened to me before but I wasn’t able to take both home. Great poem!

    • Dear Kadijah:

      I am astonished by your poem, “Why I’m Picky as Hell,” because this happens to so many people when they go shopping. It is something many people can relate to. One part of your poem that stands out to me is where you said you decided to take both home! This stood out to me because this quickly solved your problem, it was better for you to get both than just one pair. Another part that I found really interesting was when when the worker called you a picky customer. Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me once. One time I took my mom to go shoe shopping with me and I told her that I was only going to get one pair of shoes. While I was looking at the shoes I had found two pairs of shoes that I really liked. My mom suggested that it would be better if I ended up taking both of them because by the time we would get home I would really regret buying just one pair. So I ended up buying both shoes and up to this day I don’t regret buying both of them!

  • Dear Joanna,
    Your poem says a lot about you and how you are as a person, and i like how mentioned that your name may be “boring” but you are still confident in representing your name and i appreciate that about you sharing that.

  • I like how you are really positive about your nickname

    • Hey there Kadijah this is Nathan I say keep your name and don’t change it. In less you really want to but just because your name is after someone famous does not mean change it because you don’t have the same personality. You want to be you not someone else your not post to be. By the way your name is kind of hard to spell so don’t get mad at someone because of the spelling in less someone you know very well can’t spell it.
