    The best way to become a better musician of a certain genre is to listen to that genre. For jazz musicians specifically, we must absorb as much jazz music as possible: Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Gordon Goodwin, Louis Armstrong, etc. But without the social push towards more intelligent music than Bie...

    You always hear stories about this abstract concept we call “love.” Many of us are too naive to comprehend its true value. To feel love or be in love. Some people do, some people don’t. It never seems to come at a convenient time. It hardly comes to the “right” people. It may last a day, i...

    How could Adam Sandler stoop so low as a comedian, actor, writer, producer, and human being to put forth this movie? The original Grown Ups was a beautiful success: witty, heart-warming, and original. But this over-produced, over-rated, semi-pornographic sequel was horrific. However, if you enjoy fa...

    “Admission” is Tina Fey's newest project. This sweet comedy is unlike the rest of her work. From ­delivering the Weekly News and appearing as a Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” to being the workaholic Liz Lemon on “30 Rock,” and performing as the witty teacher in the hit movie ...

    I hate growing up. I’m not good at it, I don’t care for it, and I prefer not to do it at all. I am quite intimidated by the fact that I’m a sixteen-year-old junior in high school. I am overwhelmed by activities and commitments and engagements and a stunning lack of sleep on a regular basis. An...

    Music. A universal language. My entire life revolves around some type of beat; from being in the school marching band and jazz band, to listening to heavy metal to get pumped for a swim meet, or worshiping at church with traditional hymns, I am a music fanatic. It seems like everyone everywhere...

    Where have you gone? I’m circling- Lost. In a sea of uncertainty- Drowning. Walking around- Aimlessly. Looking for a cause- Searching. Giving up- Hopeless. Where have you gone? Oh, my motivation....

    As a teenage girl, I am prone to liking teenage boys. Fact. Falling for someone has its ups and downs. Pros and cons. For me specifically, cons and bigger cons. I developed a crush for my best friend: typical. But when I fell, I fell hard. Over time, I grew more and more attached with so much h...

    He is smiling at me. His hair is golden and his eyes are as blue-green as the chlorine-permeated pool that we swim in after school each weekday. And he is smiling at me. We’ve been friends for years and he has smiled at me thousands of times, but nothing like this. He is smiling at me the way that...

    Love is a mental illness. A problem. Your mind wanders, your eyes grow wide, and a new speech impediment appears. Love is The Blob. It consumes your entire being. It won’t let go. It feeds off of your weaknesses and grows stronger with pain. Love is a ghost. You don’t see it coming. ...

    Friday nights, when most teenagers are partying, vegging out, or cramming for exams, I work at my father's family-owned Italian restaurant. I am a waitress for the elderly who migrate in herds at a leisurely pace. And for young couples on an uncomfortable first date. And for the middle-aged sports f...

    If only life was like math; one answer per problem not hard to find and all answers in the back of the book. We would all have a calculator to help us when we’re apathetic to solve simple arithmetic and not waste time with silly mistakes. We would all be taught a lesson, what steps ...

    Who are you? You’re not the friend I know. Growing up, growing apart. You have changed so much I hardly recognize you. I nearly want to shutter at the sight that you’ve become, what they’ve turned you into. You’re not the friend I know....

    If I could just express to you the way I feel. If I could just put into words what’s in my head. If I could just grab the courage to be honest. If I could just swallow my pride and say I love you....

    It’s a funny thing, being caught up in a book. Unaware of surroundings. Just a jumble of letters after a while of scanning and searching. But somehow it all makes perfect sense. Dodging traffic in hallways and ignoring conversations in classrooms. All I want is to finish this Sentenc...

    After all of the songs that I’ve heard, After all of the gentlemen that I’ve seen, After all of the love that I’ve felt, I still do not believe. Because of all of the lies that I’ve heard, Because of all of the swine that I’ve seen, Because of all of the pain that I’ve felt...

    My name is Francis Lee Gerber. Yuck! So my friends call me Frankie. I am six-years-old. I have this orange hair that is super bright and looks funny with my tons of freckles. I am three feet and eight inches high and I wear my lucky blue and maroon striped socks every day. They go up to the bottom o...

    I am under pressure. Stressed. Pulled tautly like a drum- one side, another, and another. Until there is nothing left of me. I am in over my head....

    “It’s Just High School.” Marvelous revelation. But does that help the hurt? The pain? The lies? The betrayal? The heartbreak? The torture? The bullying? The insecurity? The fact that it’s high school?...

    A sporty ginger walks by a radiant blond: flipping her hair, surrounded by menfolk “I want that,” the sporty ginger says with a sigh. A radiant blond sits by an intelligent brunette: with an A+ paper and a smile from the teacher. “I want that,” the radiant blond says with a sigh...

    I walk back and forth. From History to English, English to band. Every day of school. History to English, English to band. I walk by the same people- the girls with the flippy, straight hair on their heads and nothing inside of their minds. The ones with the caked-on make-up and pearly white fake sm...

    When you’re a teenager with messy hair, a black t-shirt, and your hands in the pockets of your leather jacket, adults tend to assume you’re a criminal about to steal something from them. I however, am not. I am a nerdy, Christian hipster, honors student that has seen the Lion King, Peter Pan...
