The Pursuance of a Musical Dream

Mentioned in an earlier post, my friend, Paul Vu (Ebmarah), has been producing music for the greater part of this year. His goal is to become a well-known DJ in the electronic music community. Unlike many other people who are pursuing a dream, Paul refuses to give up regardless of how many people actually listen…

Wait, Don’t Waste!

Although an already hotly discussed topic here in America, the food waste we have needs to be addressed with more diligence. It is estimated that we Americans waste around 60-70 percent of our food on a yearly basis… wow. Imagine if all that good could go to all those who need it the most.  …

Break and Escape

It’s common to see a great deal of people you know being put under constant stress and anxiety. Financial problems, relationships, losses, etc. Stuff happens, and sometimes people deal with them by having an escape.     Be it through music, friends, or vacationing, there are tons of way to take a break from the…

The New American Dream

An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. That’s how it used to be. Pick grapes, collect oranges, construct buildings… no more. Thanks to the technology and communication of this age, many have begun looking into occupations that shy away from manual labor, and it’s apparent in today’s society.     The emphasis on…

Pass-end

Passion. Passion for any given topic seems to be a dying quality in this generation. No one seems to care anymore, or so I see it. The “I don’t care” attitude is a thriving trend for today’s teens, and it’s quite sad.     In my eyes, I have seen fewer and fewer people continue…

Zeenes (Zines).

Pronounced as “zenes”, zines are basically mini-pamphlets in which a person usually describes one of his/her stories or issues. I find these interesting as people often make these elaborate and ornate creations with simple materials such as paper, cardboard, etc. Typically, people will often stick these zines in public places such as libraries, restaurants, and…

Little Time

Time is taken for granted. Everyone nowadays seems to be saying they have no time or there’s not enough of it or time limits them on what they can do. In reality, time is there, it just depends on how you use it.     Time management¬†has always been a hot topic concerning high school…

Making a Change

The somewhat-recent election of Trump has elicited madness and discourse throughout the country. People are taking sides and sometimes, things may turn out violent.¬†But, there are celebrities out there trying their hardest to shame Trump in as many ways as possible, just not in the right way.     Shia LeBeouf, a famous actor, was…

Speling Errors

A sole letter has the ability to alter the complete meaning of any given word. But can turn into butt, public into pubic, and so on and so forth. With the new president being relatively active on Twitter, many have seen the many spelling errors Mr. Trump has made. This raises the question of whether…

50 Free: A Reflection on Categorizing

There are good blogs, and there are not-so-good blogs. I strive to create the former. In the past six or so months, I have worked hard on creating a blog that would reach out to other high school students alike and effectively present my thoughts in a clear, entertaining way. To assist me in reaching…

Specificity is Special

For years, it seems as if adults have been telling students and kids to be more specific and concrete. In English and writing classes, the suggestion to add more details is ubiquitous. However, this is for good reason. An essay, Let’s Get Specific by Beth Johnson, depicts how using more detail will aid any piece…

Grades Fade

In this generation, school has become more competitive and more focused on than ever before. This is one of the reasons students have had less time to play and do other activities that teenagers in the past would normally do. Grades are typically the focus of every student, and for good reason, as grades are…
