    • Dear Kimberly,

      Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “I don’t get the feeling I’m clueless.” I really like the transition from not knowing anything about love and feeling, then not being able to leave once it was felt. I felt that it was beautiful and truthful.

      A second line that was powerful was “I give them lies…” because it reminded me of the cheesy quote, “Love makes you do crazy things.”

      A connection I made to your poem is “Urgent ,I’m growing up, each second time is wasting” ( added some comas.)

      because with every second that goes by, there will always be something you want to do so you wont’t regret it later on in you life.

      Your poem also reminded me of a life of a teenager . Usually not being or just being able to detect the feelings of people and your own.

      I really love your poem and how it also shows how helplessly in love Juliet was with Romeo.

      Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.

    • Dear kimberly,
      I enjoyed reading your poem because it got me intrigued into reading more into your poem. I also liked how you used sound effects to make your poem more lively. Your poem was detailed and I could see the clear connection to romeo and juliet.

  • Dear bryan,

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ In my shadow box I put some motivational quotes because when I am feeling sad or down I look at motivational quotes because the quotes I find make me feel motivated and they cheer me up.” I think this is cool because I can see that you really love motivational quotes. I can also see…Read More

    Dear Victor,

    One sentence that you wrote that stands for me is “ Soccer is very important to me because All my life I been playing soccer is like a second nature for me I love playing soccer.” I think this is is awesome because I can see that you really love soccer if you capitalize All and state “All my life.” I hope you follow your dreams…Read More

    • Dear Kimberly,

      Thank you for sharing this project with me. My name is Marielle and I am a student at San Jose State University. I noticed that you talked about not following things that are traditionally “feminine” such as not liking colors that other girls would like or liking plants over liking flowers. I really resonated with you feelings. I am also not into the traditional feminine things. My favorite colors are blue and green. I also really enjoy nature and would rather prefer being outdoors than indoors. A lot of times growing up, I was teased for not being “girly” and liking more traditionally male things. However, I never really let it get to me because I know who I am and I love the things that I love. I am glad that you were able to share those things with me. It also makes me really happy that you are proud of who you are. Thank you again for your time and I really enjoyed hearing from you!

    • Hi Kimberly, I enjoyed reading about your shadow box! My name is Tahdaja and I am a student at San Jose State University. You mentioned being not as girly as the girls around you and I can totally relate to that. I was never as girly as those around me and I felt out of place, but I never wanted to act like I was girly when I really was not. Society makes us believe that girls only like pink and boys only like blue but that’s far from the truth. My favorite color is green and has been for as long as I could remember. I love how you like what you like no matter what people think. I am happy to see this information about you and I hope you never change no matter what people may think. Thank you for your time!
