    • Sean,
      I found your topic vey interesting. I liked how you talked about why you chose your topic and that there has been a fatality from over studying. Here is an article that I think you will enjoy https://www.thebalance.com/time-management-tips-2947336 . Great article and I am eager to see what else you find

    • S-
      I, too, find this to be a fairly important topic. A lot of people don’t realize that hours upon hours of studying is not healthy as it is. taking a break or just taking the slightly lower grade is worth it rather than staying up until 5:00AM and taking a test at 7:45AM the next day and for two days afterwards(like when we take the PSAT/SAT). I think your interest in researching this and raising awareness by posting here on this blog is brave and actually very valuable. I hope many people read your post and do some of their own research. Thank you for sharing. -V

    • Hey Sean, I think this is a great idea for a paper. This idea has more than enough information create the long informative essay we are looking for. Not only should you look into whether or not tests help, but the alternative options too.
      I don’t think standardized testing is the route to judge how well students are doing, but what’s our other option? I did a piece on this for the paper last year, so let me know if you ever want to use it. Nice beginning Sean, and good luck!

    • I find it very interesting how you take apart and show the effect a genre of music can have on the listener. I have heard many of the stereotypes you have talked about and have a new perspective on these thanks to this article.

    • Sean,
      I thought it was interesting when you quoted, “people who chose to be pissed off actually showed a greater sense of well-being overall than the people who avoided feelings of unpleasantness,” because I see how positive impact in letting that negative energy out. I was apart of the population that assumed that those who listened to heavy metal were angry people. On bad days when I’m not feeling too hot, I put on some heavy metal to get it all out. Until my personal experience, I would have stayed away from the head banging music but I urge people to give it a listen. Thanks for writing and I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    • Sean, I enjoyed reading your post because I feel the same way you do, not just about Metal, but all other subgenres of Rock. People see it as violent music, like you said or call it ¨music for emos¨ or for goths, not that there is anything wrong with them, but I feel like anyone could listen to it. I have always stuck with Rock music not only because I can relate to most songs, but also because they are very talented people that make art with their instruments and voices. I would like to hear more about your take on other types of music genres or even your favorite bands!
