    A strong woman is one who has a clear sense of self. She shines in awareness of her uniqueness and speaks with a steady voice. She does not seek a beautiful place to inspire her footsteps, but makes her community a better place in humbleness. I am not this woman yet; but I want to find her in me. ...

    Water is She She arrives in this world as a tall glass of water. She is simple and pure, containing every ounce of goodness the world once offered. Refreshment flows from her speech; so effortlessly and ordinarily, her nature dazzles every force around with her. The sun is vain when it catches a...

    Sometimes, we need to be physically impaired first to heal from the past. This is such an oxymoron, but one that holds truth. I believe that becoming physically weak breaks down barriers that lie between enemies and transgressions; the other becomes more willing to forgive, to let go, and to grasp m...

    The truth is, I am going to get diabetes one day. I have a scandalous affair with confections. Whether that is colorful French macaroons, coconut sponge cake, or fresh baked cookies, I rarely turn down a sweet. I can never have enough. Afterwards, I go to the gym for therapy. It’s a lovely process...

    “Everything around her is a silver pool of light, The people who surround her feel the benefit of it, It makes you calm, She holds you captivated in her palm.” I have never been able to relate to the lyrics of KT Tunstall’s song, “Suddenly I see” until I met Ramona Capello. Polished ...

    I believe in waiting. You’ve probably heard the saying, “It’s worth the wait.” And I am learning to embrace it. Every girl wants to be in a relationship. Flowing chiffon dresses, loose locks, blushing cheeks, purity presented in a white gown, and that special ring. As much as I try, I can...

    Sometimes I look up to the sky and wonder where my corner of it is. Where can I one day look up to one section of the world and call that place that I am standing at, home? My soul longs for something that I already have, and one of these refuges is Moraga. Moraga does not have the glitter and l...

    I believe in Southern charm. Four months into college, I have not seen much of it. Many girls and guys seek disposable relationships, where one night of bliss and a morning of guilt define “dating.” Yet, I still believe in the virtue of purity and Southern charm. Why has this generation forsaken...

    The smell of homemade pork soup. The array of slippers near the front door. The golden NorCal sunshine cascading onto the hills. Chatter about chores and life. It feels like home. Four months into college, I cannot say that I like my old life over my new one. I love being able to watch movies wit...

    I used to think that guys are the ones who seek physical pleasure and strip away a girl’s virginity. However, the willingness to let loose and give in to a blissful evening before marriage is as powerful for girls. In college, I witness this every day. The elevator divides the girls on my floor; t...

    Hello God, mom, dad, the world. I too have a dream. Actually, my overarching dream contains of many dreams. Sometimes, I don’t know if the world can hold everything that I want to do. First of all, I want to give legal advice to the poor. I want to educate them on ways that the local legal ...

    I believe that a dignified woman deserves the best. I believe that Katie Holmes, Meg Ryan, Audrey Hepburn, and all of the other women out there who are brave, elegant, pure, kind, and graceful should never trot around with trashbag-like men. No more of this. It is most disappointing to me to see th...

    It's 1:51 a.m. and after scarfing down a bowl of wontons, I still cannot sleep. My mom has always said that having a full stomach helps you sleep. But tonight, I cannot shut my eyes or stop my mind from having loads of emotions. I am a high school teenager, moving on to be a freshman in college. Dep...

    For 2 years, I have without the world of Facebook. I was tired of people’s desire to publicize their lives and receive attention. I felt as if Facebook was unnecessary and unneeded in my life. I wanted to be an individual without having pictures reveal who I was. So, I deleted my account with no r...

    Last Friday, I graduated. Looking back, I realized that I sacrificed too many things to get into a good college and excel high school. If you are an underclassmen or junior right now, I hope you read on. If I were in your shoes, I would have strived in high school differently. There are so many sacr...

    To all of you upset students of the Class of 2012, I am confused too. Two years ago, a counselor told me that 2012 would be the hardest year to get into college. The applications to the UC system increased by 20%, while budget cuts had to cut down the number of admits. Students are protesting at ...

    Hello world. Hey God. Hi mom, dad. Today, I am officially 18. Yes, the eagerly-anticipated number that brings on savory freedoms and limitations, greater adventures and fresh stories. Today, I wave goodbye to my childhood and venture into the world of adulthood. The events that have occurred over...

    1 Peter 3: 3-4 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. ...

    In high school, teenagers are on a road to self-discovery. As a high school senior, I am still finding bits and pieces of myself. I like to call this journey “self-recollection.” Sometimes, I am the bold debater. Other times, I am the listener in the back of the room who takes notes. Overall, ...

    This week, I had an eye-opening epiphany about friends. Towards the beginning of summer, the 6 of us planned to go on a road-trip. A few weeks ago, 4 of them decided to exclude me and another girl on their excursion to Lake Tahoe. Not only that, but they posted pictures of this trip on Facebook. ...

    City lights sparkle as a trail of ants meander here and there; a tall girl with braided hair holds onto the hand of her little sister; libraries filled with SAT books to be poured over; calendars to remind us of our circumstances, what we dread: the future. Church songs resonate in her mind . . . ...

    "When life gives you a load of work, don't forget to relax over a cup of tea." As life's duties multiplies, it's crucial for students to find a way to balance our lives on a scale - with work on one side and rest on the other. As human beings, we will wear down if we are ...

    Over this past summer, my mom rented one of her favorite classics from the library. It was called "Roman Holiday," starring one of America's most beloved actresses, Audrey Hepburn. Even though it was an old movie in black and white, we still watched it too many times. The film was abo...

    Morrie Schwartz once stated that “The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” What are the dimensions of love, the worth in it, and the vitality of having it in one's life? Love is an indescribable value that is expressed and felt in many...

    If I were to define the term, "media," I'd call it a "stalker." It's true - it follows us wherever we go and tries to plant facts, lies, and entertainment into our minds. It's @ Safeway, our homes, work, school. EVERYWHERE. Television. Movies. The Newspaper. ...
