• Joseph,
    This is something that every successful person knows very well. You’ve only truly “failed” when you give up on yourself. Anything is possible with enough determination and perseverance. I enjoyed reading your own stories of failure and success and I hope that people will be inspired by them.

  • Very powerful poem Maddie. I like how you combine the good and the bad when talking about something so beautiful. Also that picture of honey made me hungry.

    I enjoyed reading your review and I’m now considering taking my mother to Ozzy’s for mothers day. The food you described sounds delicious and much more tasteful than another ham and cheese sandwich. The only thing I would have liked to know is how crowded it was when you went there.

    I love all of your ideas, and I think its wrong that cosmetic products are tested on animals. Only things like cures and medical treatment options should be tested on animals because they help save human lives. Cosmetics do not. I personally do not have a problem with people hunting for meat because all sort of pain and suffering exists…[Read more]

    This is top-notch poetry man, really makes you think. I feel like I’m being two stories at once and near the end the stories combine into one very powerful message.

    This is a really nice poem to hear now that spring is coming round, leaves are coming back finally. I missed the sound of the wind whistling through them, it helps me think.

    Jordan, I think what you just described is something that everyone in high school has felt at some time or another. But what sets us all apart is how we deal with it. Give yourself a little perspective when your back is against the wall. What you do in high school CAN have a major impact on the rest of your life so choose wisely. Give yourself…[Read more]

  • Olivia, I liked your post. In an age where kids spend more and more time away from home and less time with their parents, Coaches can be an important source of wisdom and attitude. Without positive role models, kids can end up passive-aggressive, misguided, and suffer from a lack of confidence. Coach Cordova looks like a good guy, and your school…[Read more]

  • Malia, I found it fascinating how much a person’s mood can change after a few small changes to their appearance. But I personally don’t think it’s healthy to modify yourself with piercings or implants. I’m not saying its physically unhealthy, just mentally. If you can learn to love yourself the way you are, I think you’d be much happier than if…[Read more]

  • Aleksandra, I think you need to take a few deep breaths and consider what the worst possible outcome of this situation is. At the very worst you might be minorly inconvenienced, because out government has a system of checks and balances to keep anyone from gaining too much power. I would be more afraid of the gridlock in congress than a few bad…[Read more]

  • Lazy Laurence loved to lean in his chair

    He’d stretch his legs, crack his back, and let his bottom slide forward

    His mother would scorn him

    “Sit up straight! Stop slouching!”

    But Lazy Laurence loved to lean
