  • Dear Sara,

    I enjoyed reading this; since i come from an immigrant family I could relate to this very deeply. I would hear stories about what my parents thought America would be like but when they got here it was completely different. What you said about how life is really hard for immigrants and that they have to overcome a lot of obstacles is…[Read more]

    Dear Sage,
    I enjoyed the opening paragraph where you talked about how technology has helped you stay connected with someone you otherwise would’ve lost touch with completely. I read many articles on how technology has cut down the time needed on researching for most people and allows them to…[Read more]

  • kayden,
    I found this post to be very humorous and light hearted. Asking someone what kind of ninja turtle they are asks them to look at who they are as a person and what they have done. This post is about self reflection and it sure did make me think, i would say that i am more of a Michelangelo because of my personality and how carefree i am.…[Read more]

    this was very interesting to read. What you had to say about being latino and illegal made me think more about how much harder other people have to work to make it here. When you said you had to work hard in school so one day you can make it really made me think and appreciate my situation more, not that im bragging but more as in this made me…[Read more]

  • A prenup is a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract created by two people before they marry. In the prenuptial agreement the couple addresses such issues as the property

    • Hey Ravi,
      I am a fan of pre-nups. In your essay, you bring up the point that prenups are considered rude in today’s society. But why should it be rude to protect yourself? Almost half of American marriages end in divorce. Part of the problem may be that people believe that they will always be in love. There is an illogical part to love that makes you totally trust the other person. Don’t get me wrong, this is part of what makes love so special, but it can also make people blind. Do you feel everyone would be better off if prenups were required as a part of marriage? Thank you for your essay!

    • Ravi,
      I agree that talking to your partner about having a prenup is a good idea. In our day and age most people end up getting divorced and many times there are problems based on property rights. I think prenups help others to not have a problem once they get divorced. It leaves the couple with a clean slate, and everything they intended to have. Below is a link that says why you shouldn’t have a prenup and it contrasts all these ideas.

  • Javier, I really enjoyed reading your senior project paper. What you said about how fast food companies are more prominent in poorer communities was very eye opening and it made me think about how richer communities have their organic healthy food stores near them because those people can afford to buy those foods. I feel as though the fast food…[Read more]

  • Amran, I think this topic is very interesting as my family owns a small business too and I can relate to what you said about your family and their business. What you said about small businesses being the backbone of some economies was very interesting to me and I would’ve liked if you had expanded on that and explained more Overall this research…[Read more]

  • Dear Javier, I really enjoyed reading your post and I think that you researching this and bring more light to it is very important. Even though I enjoyed reading your post, I did start thinking that not only poverty but also the environment the young people are raised in where some (or however many) adults are uneducated influence the young people…[Read more]

    Dear Nick, I enjoyed reading your post, reading about how specific words can be a trigger for feelings such as the feeling of claustrophobia or being cold is very intriguing because as you probably have never been in a igloo you still associate feelings and emotions with it which i found to very interesting.

  • Dear Raymond, I thought your post was well said and I enjoyed reading it. I thought you talking about how we have the technology to move to another planet was very interesting, but I have to disagree with you on that. None the less your post was well researched and put together eloquently.

  • What i know is that people are so reliant on their devices that they have a mini heart attack when they don’t have it with them. There are many studies that show that youths are very reliant on their phones and c

    • Dear Ravi,
      I agree with your opinion and how us kids rely on our devices. We make the device an everyday use, and can not go a few hours with out checking a tweet, a message, or a snap. But I also think that our devices are a great use, we find out a lot of news that way. We research and find answers quick. Even though it may not seem like we need them but in realitiy it is smarter than the human brain.
      Something that you said that stood out to me was ” get used to the ease of the internet and just the device in general because these devices are made to be like that so the kids don’t realize the dependance is forming and they learn to live with it as opposed to living without it. ” We at a young age don’t enjoy life and how important it is, we don’t go out for a walk without our faces looking down at our screen.

    • Dear Ravi,
      I am satisfied by your topic of kids rely on phones a lot, but however, I feel that they’re some kids who can handle not having their phone for a week. Maybe like those kids who’s parents do not allow their kid to have phones. What stood out the most was “this leaves young people vulnerable because they almost can do day to day tasks without them, remembering phone numbers, doing simple math without the calculator app, and talking to people online instead of face to face.”I feel I can handle without a phone since I lost my phone.
      Regards Justin.

    • Dear Ravi,
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “people are so reliant on their devices that they have a mini heart attack when they don’t have it with them” I think this accurate because people are so used to having their phones with them all the time, relining on them that when they have it taken away, most people have to throw a fit acting like they’ll never see it again. In this generation you’ll probably see almost every teenager with a type of device to use, and it won’t matter what type as long as you’re able to check your social media.

    • This video included your opinion evidence for the source and was very well stated with tons of facts

    • Dear Ravi,
      I am interested in your essay because I can relate to this very well. You explain how kids but also adults rely on technology heavily. You proved very well why they do so. One thing you did was well was prove your perspective very well.

    • Dear Ravi,
      I agree with technology being too relied on by adults and also kids. We use them everyday and they can get addicting. They can be used for many great uses like finding the weather, messaging important people, making calls etc, but there’s a point when it is too much. Something that you said that stood out was that children don’t realize how bad and addicting it can get, it can get a part of our lives. Soon I believe we will rely on them even more then we do now.
      Regards.

    • Dear Ravi,
      I am interested in your post because i agree with your thoughts. You also back them up with evidence that supports your thoughts. People are reliant on their devices, and its mostly young people because we’ve grown up with phones in our lives. One thing you said that stands out for me is “They get used to the ease of the internet and just the device in general because these devices are made to be like that so the kids don’t realize the dependence is forming and they learn to live with it as opposed to living without it.” I think this is interesting because companies design these devices to get us to depend on them on a day to day basis.
