  • Hello Thomas! I agree, friendship is super important. However, it is also super important to have friends that support and respect you. Regardless though, having a friend is great and something that shouldn’t be taken lightly in my opinion. Thank you for this piece! Keep up the good work!

  • Hello Abinaov! I like you piece as I think you have hit some really key points that a lot of people can relate to. Change can be scary, but that change might ultimately be a good thing. Even if the change is good there is probably still going to be resistance to it because a fear. Whether the reservations to change are rational or irrational…[Read more]

    Hello MacKenzie,

    This is a really cool perspective to write from in my opinion. I think that the overall flow of the poem works well and I like that you have taken the structure of another poem, used it as a model, and then made it your own. Nice job!

    Hello Matthew,

    Nice work! I like that this seems genuine, and think that it is a cool comparison.

  • Dear Rylan:


    First and foremost, be who you are.  You will meet people who tell you that you must act a certain way or be a certain thing.  Don’t put too much stock into what comes from people you don’

    • Dont ever let anyone change be who u are and stay true to yourself your friends and family hit the books and gat that money

    • I seriously like the thought of writing a letter to your younger self. It really shows that you and only you know your faults. Thats a great quality to have in your personality.

    • Dear Ryanly, i really like the thought of written a letter to my younger self. it will really show us the old stuff we use to do as younger kids. Thank you for writtening. i look forward to seeing what u write next time becuase this was a good idea.

    • Rylan,
      I really like your letter, I think it is important to be who you are.

    • Dear Rylan:

      I am pleased with your letter, “Letter to myself” because I feel as though it was a really good idea to write a letter to yourself. It shows that you know and are able to earn up to your faults and learn from them later in life. A couple sentences you wrote that stands out for me is “You will meet people who tell you that you must act a certain way or be a certain thing. Don’t put too much stock into what comes from people you don’t want to emulate. Remember that your family will always be there for you, even when your friends are not. ” I think this is very meaningful because a lot of people in life can learn from those words. Another sentence that I noticed was ” It will be easy to compare yourself to others and to determine your own success based on what others say.” This stood out for me because many people struggle with acceptance and if somebody that is struggling reads this, it will really help them out. Your letter reminds me of something that happened to me. I use to ask others for acceptance and tried to change who I was to fit others needs. But now i realized that there is no need for that. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it seems like you inspire people and a really stand up guy.

  • Hey Sid,
    I want to start out by saying thank you for your opinion. That being said, I don’t think it is fair to say that President Trump doesn’t use any common sense. The so called “Muslim Ban” can be seen in a lot of different ways. One view point is that Trump is a hateful, insensitive, and cruel President. Another way to look at it is that…[Read more]

  • Hey Cy,

    Nice post! Being confident and having a healthy self esteem is super important. Thinking about it also raises the point that the way we treat others is super important. I enjoyed your post!

  • I wonder how much the cost of healthier food plays into the equation. The reason I am curious about this is because I want to know if it is the cost of the food that deters chains from selling healthier food options or if the healthier food options simply do not sell very much.

  • I agree! While I recognize that not everyone will want to do yoga I do maintain the belief that having some time to vent frustration, anxiety, sadness, and other things of similar nature is extremely important.

  • I think that this issue is pretty complex because the implementation of the policies and practices being advocated for seem like they could be quite drastic. I think that having that coupled with people resisting a form of change in their own lives means this issue is going to be very challenging to do anything about quickly, but I could be wrong.

    That is relatable in my opinion. I sometimes find myself in a similar situation where I think I heard or saw something.

  • Hi Jenessa! I like how you talk about your own views on the tactics used. I don’t really like the aspect of blowing off school, work, and other commitments either.
