I’m writing about emotions that can affect lives in a negative way. The emotion I’m talking about is anger. Anger can make people make the worst decisions and hurt others on purpose or by accident. The people won’t realize it until after it happens. There […]

Tell Friends the Truth

March 28, 2018 6:56pm | Kristian

I have friends who have a misunderstanding. Its all because they won’t tell someone the truth. Just tell them the truth and clear this up. This is a story I made with no relation to my actual friends. One day, my friends got into an […]

Parent’s Perspective

March 28, 2018 6:54pm | Jasmin M

This was a project for my lit class and the purpose was to write something from the perspective of Elsie Hickam to her son Sonny Hickam, from the book October Sky. It got me thinking about the perspective of the parents that aren’t really acknowledged […]

I’m bored. I’m writing this just because life permits me. And I believe the brain is a random topic to talk about, more importantly cloning. Life as a whole is a mysterious entity. Many aspects are unknown to humankind. We don’t know how the brain […]

The star wars universe is a totally fictional world. All the events are not true but do take on the appearance of real-world events. None of the topics are just made up, not true. I DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS OF THE STAR WARS UNIVERSE! […]

This class is my absolute favorite class. Of course, there are mostly seniors in my class because Mythology accounts for your Hope GPA, and it looks really good. I didn’t actually know this when I was looking for classes last year. I really am interested […]

Humans: Social Creatures

February 20, 2018 10:37pm | Jasmin Mitchell

One of the worst situations for a human to be in is isolation. It is human nature to be social. Even if it is only a companionable silence. The way that the brain is hard wired makes it dangerous-almost futile- for someone to go so […]
