    The school bell rings it's last ring. Summer has begun. There is anticipation in the faces of many students and their legs bolt for the first smell of freedom. The stereotype of the wonderful season begins to structure itself with parties, days spent alone at home, and a daily get-together. Man...

    The teenage mind works in ways that are incomprehensible. It feeds not off of information or that vital to our sanity, but rather the erratic powers of emotion. It hibernates after the fuzzy feel of safety. The structure we desire to the bone. It drives many kids into what they believe is depression...

    Q: How would you describe your social life? A: Awesome. I have the coolest friends. We don't really talk much, but oh well. Q: Would you feel more safe around them if you did talk? A: Well, yeah. But can I even avoid the silence between my friends and I? Who's to say? Q: Have y...

    Barren are the streets of poison producing automobiles. Time is not conceived as a property of human concern. Oh, how this day in age is impeccable in my mind compared to modern civilization. Right before the fists of industry had slammed itself on us. No revolution for industrialization had occurre...

    Death has stared me in the face. It's cackle was that of a joker and it kept telling me the negatives that envelop my personality. I had been in existence for so long that I wasn't even alive. Weekends at home. Hearing the blissful chatter of life outside made me colorblind to the point wh...

    I'm lost. I see them but they are not there. The people I once called my friends had instantly been put on trial in my mind. They were gone. The people behind me trying to find them as well didn't matter to me. I had a pain in my eyes. The pain that your eyes receive when its fighting off ...

    Is it the values of life that bring us together? Or maybe even drive us apart? Are we able to tell these values of life? If so, is it worth leaving a place called home to capture? A lot of people have different beliefs as to what the values in life are. Some think its money, although they don&...

    My hands were weary. The ache of my body showed appreciation when I looked at my spotless room. The books were tidy, and the floor showing a face I was still trying to figure out. "I hope you finished cleaning". My mother's shriek was that of any other mothers. The fact that my mother...

    I snapped. The thought of being constantly judged by my acquaintances caused the long, gruesome conflict between my head and heart to come to an end. My mood was no longer peachy. The gates to gain my friendship had been guarded with caution. As I was walking to school the next day, I felt my...

    Fighting. Why do us humans do it? The first punch thrown after a conflict will exacerbate a situation. The emotions building up in that one second consists of the ego and a slur of other evils. The evil doesn't lie in the fighter, though. This article isn't even related to the fighter. It&...

    School. An area in which lifeless students with a lack of jubilance are being taught indoctrinated information. These basic studies in which students learn, containing no depth, are taught by unwilling teachers. These "molders of minds" have cracked the moldings inside the student body. ...

    I cannot comprehend why schools decide to hand out vacation homework. To my knowledge a vacation is a period of time in which someone has a break from work. The distribution of work that is to be complete during the vacation goes against the whole point of a vacation. It's possible to say ...

    Growing up without a father can be often depressing for child in their youth, and especially their adolescent years. However, the real story is about those fathers who have stuck with their families. The father of the family is the glue to the entire household. Without him, difficult stages are ofte...

    Peace is a state of tranquility that most individuals wish to accomplish. However, when mass media promotes violence it begins to alter the mind of an American civilian. With daily news stories revolving around violent actions, it seems almost as if there is a certain tradition being followed. With ...

    Music has lost its way in my eyes. It now turns to lyrics without meaning and fake, technologically rich instruments. It turns kids to fake role models that would sellout in a minute. The record companies are okay with this because they get the money so it doesn't matter to them. True musi...

    I believe in true love. I am no victim of the word and my patience has grown thin from finding it. But my will is there and my perfect description is written in my mind. Why do people have to abuse such a valued word with lust? Why must celebrity marriage and then eventually divorce taint this myste...

    Most teenagers grow to a rebellious stage in their lives. Everyone has a different way of expressing their rebellion. I believe in God, but my anger is pointed towards religion (which I refuse to tie God down with). The world has had plenty of tragic events take place mostly due to religion. Sometim...

    Over the last couple of decades, Technology has rapidly expanded in our society. Some of these advances are indeed, positive, but most of them cause this society to tread and lose focus. Social networking such as Facebook or Tumblr have become a major impact on teens. Google has become a main source...

    A lot of today's youth cannot take initiative for the things they desire. Due to advancements in technology, teenagers are often too lazy to form a public outcry for help. Many of us teenagers sure do complain a lot about the things we would like, but do we actually take action for these things...

    You've fallen near the prickly thorns. Gone out in thunderstorms. The ones that happen to love you, have not a single clue, of the lies you've said when lying, in your never-ending pit trying, clawing with black nails crying, it will never be done again. But you're voice is...

    I have an unusual perception of what I believe a hero is. Some say it is their parents and others choose people that have done great things for society (which I also believe in). However, a hero to me is a person of difference. A person who doesn't follow the trends just because they are popula...
