    Never Change

    I never really understood why I got treated so badly by my classmates. People would say nasty things like “Why are your shoes so cheap?”  “You can’t afford better clothes?” Was it because I didn't talk like them? Was it...

    • I onces was in you places to and I can relate to this. I felt alone and shy and I didnt want to stay like that so I made a move and started interacting with people and started talking and once I got the hang of it things were normal. I was confident and and didn’t expect it to turn out this way. I strongly believe that in order for you to not be shy you have try and and take action and start getting involved in conversations with group. ONce you do that you will feel much better and thing will change and you will see it.
      I enjoyed this and looking forward to learn more about your journey.

      • Madram, thanks for the positive and encouraging feedback. It is also great that you have lots of empathy for the speaker in this work of art.

        You should also note that an artist can create art in order to set some distance from themselves. For example, a non-shy person could have created this art from their observations of shy people

    The Lab 6 Feet Under

    The cure had to be here somewhere in this lab room. A disaster was happening. People were dying and I couldn’t find the cure.  As I was walking through the lab I began to ask myself questions like “Will I...

        Why I always go with my heart

        • I love this! I agree that if you are hopeful about something the outcome will be great! I believe this has a part to do with manifestation, if you hope for something so much it is bound to happen. Hope and courage come a long way in bad situations so it is always good to carry them in your heart.

            • I enjoyed your post so much! I can personally relate to this post and the many challenges you faced but always followed your heart. In my opinion, you can either follow what you think is best or follow the feeling in your heart that you think is right. You might think, why is this happening to me? what did I do to deserve this? but life teaches you life lessons/challenges that no matter how hard it gets, it will work, it will get better. My faith is a big part of my life to so I do agree that it makes you believe that the impossible CAN be possible.

                • I’m glad to have read your post. It’s nice to hear that you and your family are doing well as you guys have gone through your own obstacles. With how you guys seem to keep your heads up even through difficult times, things are surely to shape out better than before, especially with family. Something that stands out to me is: “I always knew it would take time and I would need to have patience during the process of seeing her in that horrible condition. So I waited and still had hope and courage.” I think the fact you knew you had to be patient to see what results would come is great. Patience requires hope, fact of the matter is, hope is practiced with patience. Hope exist because we need to know what will happen in the end, what result is to come, so we stay and keep going through the painful parts. That being said, I hope for the well-being of you and your family as time goes on. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what else you write.

                    • I agree that faith can get you through any challenge. Despite the outcome of the challenge, it is important to believe. By believing you are giving hope. By believing you are making hard times feel better. Like the article says it will be hard at first, but as time passes it will all be worth the pain. There is no way to prevent every bad in the world, but we can prevent those hard times from affecting us. Choose to be happy, choose to be hopeful.

                    • Dear Thomas,
                      I delighted in perusing your post, “Electric Car Batteries,” since you bring up an issue that, to me, not numerous individuals conversation approximately, indeed in spite of the fact that it’s a broadly known subject. It’s an issue that no one can discover a practical arrangement to, but at least attempt to require a step in finding that solution we trust to attain. Something that I discover curiously is: “The truth is no one knows how electric cars would influence the current circumstance on worldwide warming in the event that we substituted them for gasoline cars, but they certainly empower a life with less CO2 emissions.” I think it’s cool you recognize the reality individuals are uninformed of how precisely a deed such as this would change our current circumstance and what kind of put the world be, great or terrible. In any case, thanks for sharing your post.

                    • Dear Raniyah,
                      I am interested in your animation/post because… You tell us more about your personal life, and the things that have driven you to become the person you are today.

                      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “I never really had a problem with my name, until I started thinking about it a million times.” I think this is interesting because… I also have this issue. I start to think to much about a specific thing and it gets me self conscious. I think others won’t like it or I just look dumb and then I’ll think about it to much and eventually not do it.

                      It’s honestly something That I wish to overcome in the future because I want to live my life however I choose. Of course I know I can do whatever, be whatever etc. But there’s always that little bit of doubt that holds me back. And I hate it.

                      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because… I know, I can relate (Not fully but I can Somewhat). And that gives me comfort.

                    What this says about white vs. black, as it relates to zip codes, is that white neighborhoods have more Opportunities because some people call it the “rich section.” And Black people don’t have that many resources and Opportunities because they like to compare black and white a lot and black don’t seem to have many resources and…

                  • I personally think my zip code matter because in other areas they have more money so that means they have more opportunities and resources. And I don’t think in other areas they should make the money higher but it depends. Because some areas are “White neighborhoods” and some are “Black neighborhoods”.
