I liked the premise of your poem. Many people complain about their lot in life, yet do not realize how much worse it could be. Perspective can really change a person, one man’s trash, is another man’s treasure. A garbageman in the US could complain about their job and how doing anything else would be better, yet a brick worker in India working…[Read more]
Bryan. This is the most beautiful piece of poetry I have ever read. I have plenty of experience watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and this is a phenomenal representation of the show. I loved the way you described Guy Fieri’s emotions. Thank you for making my whole week with this great post!

Hi Bryan, I enjoyed reading your story! As I was reading your story I could imagine everything you were saying so vividly in my head. You effectively used dialogue ans strong diction to make your story interesting. 10/10 would read again. Also 10/10 would recommend.
Sup Brian. I absolutely loved reading this piece. Your descriptive words and fluent storyline make the story come to life. I could thoroughly imagine exactly what you were saying, and felt as if I was watching the actual TV show! I will never forget this!!!!
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
