  • Osiris commented on the post, Body positivity

    Dear Melody:
    I am joyful about your poem, “Body Positivity,” because it sends a message about how all body are perfect no matter what. People should understand that people have different ideas of what a perfect body looks like.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I should be able to have self confidence,
    I should be able to re…Read More

  • Dear Gogiisgkoquili:
    I am shocked by your poem, “How would you feel?,” because I had no idea that you went through all of that. No one should go through and make difficult decisions like you did.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “HOW WOULD YOU FEEL if somebody wanted you dead and never know when your last day is?” I think t…Read More

  • Dear Yamile:
    I am intrigued by your post, “Should We Ban Plastic Straws,” because I always thought that banning plastic straws was the way to go. Now that I have read your post I now know that banning them might not be a good idea.

    The Unknown Power Of Music

    Lots of people love to listen to their favorite singer/band. Whether they are studying, walking, running, and even when they want to lift their spirits. In the articles "Music and Health" and "The Benefits of Listening to Music" I...

    • I liked your post about the unknown power of music. I agree what you have elaborated about adding a short summary of a proven fact that music does good to a person. When It comes to music, it is everyone’s outlet because they are in their own mind space. Some say that music can also be bad because of the certain artist and what they say in their music that may influence someone to do something. There is some artists out there that made a reputation doing music and it saved their lives. Music has a lot of meaning to it in many ways.

    • I really enjoyed reading this. I agree that music is a very important form of expression. i often listen to music when I’m feeling stressed so I enjoyed being able to relate to that. I didn’t know about the “Mozart affect”, but I find that very interesting. I think a playlist tells a lot about a person.

    • Dear Osiris,

      This post almost immediately caught my eye, especially because listening to music and enjoying it is such a huge part of my life. Though I don’t play any instruments or sing, listening to music—on the way to school, during long homework sprints, and as I fall asleep—is an aspect of my life that increases my general mood. I agree that music has the power to create a positive impact on someone’s mental health, body, and soul. It can lift our moods, and even become a relatable source to turn to, which can be found in the lyrics. Learning about the “Mozart Effect” was really interesting, too. I didn’t know that music could have the ability to raise IQ as well. This post was captivating and interesting to read about, as well as gaining insight on. I look forward to reading your next work!

    • Dear Osiris,

      I was very interested in your post right when I read the title. Music is such an important part of my life; it helps me express who I am and has helped me through many ups and downs. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “Music has always been in our lives since birth and will stay until the end.” I think this is very important because without music, I would not be the same person I am today. Music has shaped me, been an outlet for my emotions, and even gets me ready for any meet or competition that I may be attending. your post reminds me of how I make playlists for any season, occasion, trip, or big event that I might be going to. For example, whenever my team and I go to a big meet, I make a playlist full of pump up music that I listen to on the way to the meet, before my races, or when I’m just resting and getting ready to cheer on my teammates. I make these playlists because I enjoy listening to them again after the event has happened and being flooded with nostalgia and all-around happiness. Music brings me to my happy place and reminds me that there is so much to discover in the future.
      Thank you for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I thoroughly enjoyed this post. I like how you looked into something as simple as listening to music and shared its great benefits, which ranges from emotionally to physically. This post was very interesting to read about, and many can gain new knowledge because of it.

  • Osiris commented on the post, Fat girl

    Dear Shakia:
    I am touched by your poem, “Fat girl,” because as a big girl myself I agree with everything you have wrote. People have also tried to give me “advice” on being a big girl.
    One sentence you written that stands out for me is, “Or she will only get a role in the movie as the funny fat friend, Sidekicks,” I think this is accurat…Read More

    Is Boredom A Good Thing?

    People often use the phrase "Boredom is for boring people" but what if there is more to uncover. In the article "Let Children Get Bored Again" I have learned that being bored is something that we can not escape...

    • Dear Osiris,
      I enjoyed your writing , “Is Boredom a Good Thing?,” because it provided me with a new way of thinking about my bored moments.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “A way to get used to boredom is by using our creativity and imagination. Instead of looking at boredom as a bad thing, we should use it as an advantage. ” I always looked at being bored as an uncomfortable waste of my time. Like I should be doing something productive instead of staring at the wall. But, this sentence made me realize that boredom has produced a lot of good memories. Especially when I was a child, I always did something to keep myself from being bored. Whether that be playing with my siblings or creating something. The point is boredom can bring the creative and fun side out of you.

    • Dear osiris, “Is Boredom a Good Thing?” opened up my mind when thinking of what boredom is, The way i see boredom is as a way to think and open up your creativity which you wrote about and i related to it so much, Why i think boredom is good on teens or just people in general it opens up a new way of thinking and you can go deep in your thoughts and understand thing you never understood before, It also it opens up new ideas you never though you had. Boredom is also good because we try and find new things to kill it such as reading, studying, etc. Also when we try to kill boredom with doing such activities we go in with deeper thoughts which opens up new ways of thinking. Love your article osiris keep it up!!.

    • Dear Osiris,

      I am interested by your post “ is boredom a good thing “ because I started to look at boredom in a different way . Boredom can be a space for you to look internally and listen to your thoughts , find new things you always wanted to do , change your fashion , the way you think , doing research, and more . I look at it as a way to ground yourself and look more into yourself .

      One thing going you said that stood out for me is “ instead of looking at boredom as a bad thing , we should take advantage of it “ I think this is interesting because not many people look at boredom in such a positive way but I think that if we change the way we look at it and see it as an opportunity to get creative we can find out many things about ourselves.

      Thank you for sharing your project . I look forward to seeing more of your writing because , it opened up a new way of seeing boredom.

    • Dear Osiris,
      I am contentful by your post ” Is boredom a good thing” because I absolutely agree with your belief about boredom, instead of looking at as a bad thing we could actually use it as a good thing and do anything using our creativity and imagination. Considering new hobbies or joining a club boredom also allows you to engage in self reflection. One sentence that stood out to me is “The faster people accept, instead of dragging, boredom the faster people would adapt to it.” I think this is important for everyone to know because boredom should be normalized because it should be something people use for free time. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I agree with type of topic not everyone sees boredom this way.

    • Dear Osiris,
      I really liked your post “Is Boredom a Good Thing?” because it shows the highs and lows about boredom and what to do to solutionize this issue. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” Boredom is something that can not be avoided, everyone gets bored now and then and it should be normalized.” I agree we need to come up with something productive to get our mind off of the idea of “being bored”. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you really opened up my mind to this way to cure boredom. Also because I get bored frequently and i don’t know what to do about it but that’s a diffrent story now. I can’t wait for your next discussion post sweetie.

    • Dear Osiris :
      I’m impressed with your post “Is Boredom A Good Thing?,” because It is impressive that a person instead of considering boredom something bad we should consider it something of an advantage.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “One way to get used to boredom is by using our creativity and imagination” I think this is impressed because… boredom that really in this quarantine we get bored very often
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I am very interested, your publication is very interesting, how did you talk about boredom.

    • Dear Osiris,
      I am interested in your writing, “is boredom a good thing?” because i though you made a good point with learning to look at boredom with a positive attitude, then boredom may not seem like such a bad thing. one thing you said that stands out for me is “The faster people accept, instead of dragging, boredom the faster people would adapt to it.” i agree that the sooner you except boredom, the quicker you can adopt and be happy. you inspired me to accept boredom, and to just make the best out of situations. thank you for your project.

    • That’s a very interesting point Osiris. It is very easy to fall into a “funk” when boredom hits, even if there’s a lot to do and time to do it, doing nothing seems like the better option in the moment. I liked how you wrote “I think that if people stopped and appreciate their “boredom time”, they would start to see how they can benefit from it. ” This points out how most people, including myself, don’t realize everything we could be doing to better ourselves. Now, I believe taking some time to relax is important for our mental and physical health, but, in this quarantine time, we seem to be bored more than we aren’t, so there comes a point where we need to get out of that “funk.” I think what would be very helpful is HOW to get out of that state of boredom, it’s hard to just get up and get going, many of us need more tricks to help us. Here’s an article from the Guardian I found that explained how easy it was to fall into such bored states that I found pretty interesting. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/oct/14/boredom-is-bad-for-health

    • Osiris,
      Your title immediately caught my attention. Boredom is certainly something we’ve all encountered in our lives. It is also something that we typically think of in a negative light. I like how you acknowledge that boredom is not typically an enjoyable experience, yet you still suggest ways that it can become useful in our lives. You could even connect this story to the benefits of meditation or how silence affects our minds. I’ve attached an article to this comment that I think might be helpful if you choose to pursue the effects of silence on the human mind and body.

  • Osiris commented on the post, So, This Sucks.

    Dear Abbey: I am feeling in a similar way about your essay, “So, This Sucks” because I can not go and hang out with my friends during this pandemic. I also feel bad for anyone whose relatives died because of the virus.

  • Dear, Tatianna: I am touched with your post “Kids should be able to sleep late” because I agree that schools should have a program for allowing student to enter late to class. Schools should have late classes for students who do not get enough sleep or who can not wake up early in the morning.
