The Love Of My Life

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:36

Everyone has a love of their life. Maybe it's a friend, best friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, or even a beloved pet, but mine is pickles. I know, sounds crazy right, but think about it. Something always happens to humans or pets. Even if you're love of your life doesn't die while you're together and you guys split up, you will get into arguments occasionally. Over stupid small stuff too, but that doesn't happen when I'm eating pickles. Pickles don't talk back to you, judge you, or try to change who you are. They just stay in their assigned jar and I get to enjoy them whenever I want. And I don't have to settle for just one kind of pickle, noooo, I can settle for sweet, dill, and even pickles in the shape of chips. No hard decision on choosing just one thing to love. And guess what, if I run out of a jar of my pickles, I can just go get more and have an unlimited supply of pickles. That's right, while all you are settling for one love of your life, I can have unlimited loves of my life and many different kinds of them. I've been an avid pickle eater for about 3 years now, and we haven't gotten into one argument and they haven't left me yet. So the next time you think about the love of your life, remember that last argument you had with them, and then remember pickles will never fail you.

I support you although I am in a very liberal school and state, and let me tell you, it's awful. All of these people believe the lies that are told about you and they believe in the wage gap and all these lies that mainstream left wing news tells them and I try to stop it, argument after argument, win after win, but in the end I get in trouble for expressing my views and proving people wrong, like just today I was talked to by our disciplinary teacher because I expressed my thoughts about gender dysphoria and how it's a mental illness. Although I never said a single name or anything to harm another student, I was punished because I didn't share political opinions with the teachers. Dear mr President, I just wish I could meet you in person and you could show people who you really are, a kind, a smart, and a very rich businessman. The only side of you that people see is the bad side because the liberal news nit-picks stuff that you say and they don't show you apologizing after or anything good about you. This countrys economy is crumbling below us and it's not your fault, it has been for years, before Obama, and evern before Bill. But all the liberals want to blame you because the news has told them that it's all your fault and the news has told them how "bad you are" even though it's all lies. I have run out of time, but I have one last thing to say, BUILD THE WALL!

"Every now and then I get a little bit lonely."

My phone, it finally rang. This life of lonliness interupted by that sweet ring tone of mine. "Hello" I say. And a voice whispers "Turn Around" 

I quickly reply, " What kind of creep calls and tells me to do something? Take a hike" Click

For a moment I thought, Somebody wanted to talk to me. Only to find out that scaring me was their only hope. I guess this is what it means to be me. Prodded, poked at, mocked....yeah hastag sucks....

Turn arounbd bright eyes.........perhaps instead of this self pity, I should call somebody. In TA I learned that in stressful times it is best for a paerson to strenghten human connections. 

I guess that means it time to get on my XBox and light up some newbs in COD Modern Warfare.

This is Me

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:33

Some people think of me as stupid, or cringy. Just for my dyed hair, piercings, my ripped jeans and band t-shirts. But you know what? It's me. This is who I am. I am an emo nerd who watches anime and listens to My Chemical Romance, and I am proud of it. No matter how intimidating I may look or sound, that does not change the fact that I can be one of the nicest people you will ever know. I have no regrets. I have no shame. I have no fear of what people may think because, well, this is who I am. 

Thank you.

Without Social Media

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:33

Without social media, our life would be so much different. People would have to have the conversations that we dread and end up texting. You would have to learn to be comfortable talking to someone, asking someone to do something, learn to say I Love You in person, talk off your mind not some quote you found on pinterest, be outgoing, and be yourself. We would have so many more oppurtunities to be ourself. Without social media, we wouldn't feel like we had to be someone else. We could walk down the hallways at school and ask someone how their day was, ask a question, compliment them. We wouldn't have to say "gorgeous" on someone instagram picture, gossip about someone's snapchat story, talk about the slutty picture someone put on their vsco. Without social media we would have to live our life how we contoled it. 

I Am a Musician

I am the one who tries to embrace music to its full potential. 
I am the one who prefers to express my emotions in music, rather than words.
I am the one one who bottles up my feelings, to let out through my instrument.
I am the one whose words are so often misunderstood, that sometimes, I feel as though they are useless to what I can show through my music. 
I am the one that would envelop myself in music if I could, and forget all the issues in my life, and of the world. 
I am the one who uses my instument as a mouth for what I cannot say.
I was the one who used music when I was attacked for things I could not control.
I am the one who turned all of that struggle into something beautiful.
I am a musician. 

I Am That One

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:32

I am the one who. I am the one that doesn't fit in, the one everyone sees as a " redneck, country boy, hick.". I am the one that doesn't like to be tied down, a certain breed of paranoid schizophrenic. I'd perfer to call myself "old fashioned", a member of a society that's mostly not of my nature. I like the trucks and the hunting. I like old music and old cars. I believe the only way to get anywhere in life is through the hard work that you put fourth to making yourself, and this world, a better place. I try not to worry myself with minor things. The next math test doesn't get to me. Maybe that's why my grades are the way they are. I'm not scared of much, people don't scare me, death doesn't scare me. I don't get caught up in the things that are of lesser importance, the inevitable. I am the one who doesn't scare easy. I am the one who strives to be his best.

  Back in the days of 1940s, there was nun Facebook and nun snapchat. If I was wanted to see beautiful Dorothy May I'd have to hop on my horse and ride down to the general store on 52nd street. She was the beautifullest girl I ever seen, we were gonna be the greatest love story the town had ever seen. Until that darn Smart gadget came out and she started talking to cuter boys than I. Dorothy May could have been my girl but that darn Marc Zucherburg changed the game. 

Social Media

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:32

If snapchat, twitter, instagram and facebook were gone forever. I honestly would not mind that. Because social media is not the most important thing in the world to worry about or care about. In fact social media can actually make life worse for certain people if it's not used the right way. And I know that from personal experience. Sometimes taking a long or short break from social media can make a person feel better on the inside. And it allows them to choose something else to do that is much more productive than looking at a screen for hours. If those social media apps were gone then I think it would allow peope to be more open to certain things. You can live without your phone, you might not think it. But believe me it's definiately possible. After a few hours or so without the social media, you'll feel a whole new sensation. If you think you can't live without your phone or those social media apps, then I'm sorry...

Life without social media

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:32

Imagine if all social media -- Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, etc. -- shut down. Would that be a good thing or a bad thing? How would it affect your life?

 

If all social media, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter, all shut down, I feel as if this society would be more focused on their hopes and dreams, and the future that is ahead of them. Social media today and people constantly using their cellular devices are harming the people in our society and community. Most social media websites include others harming or harassing people they may or may not know. If social media were to shut down, I feel as it would be a positive and really helpful thing for many people. Getting rid of social media sites will encourage children, young adults, and adults to pay more attention to the ideas and people in their life that really matter. People in our society today find that posting on social media is far more important than the quality time they actually spent with their loved ones. Some people post and comment on social media often use it to their advantage and disrespect people and have debates. The people behind the screens don't realize how much cyberbulling and intentionally hurting someone online has on someone elses life. 

Social Media

If Social Media was gone it would make some peoples lives better. It will let people be able to talk face to face and not screen to screen. I can live without my phone. I have let my phone die and didn't charge it for 5 days. I didn't die. It made me realize that it's better to have real conversations with people then through a screen. It would be a bad thing to alot of people because people think social media is the only way that they can contact their friends and family. But really it's not. I think a couple of days out of each month it should be shut down. It will make kids realize that there is more to life then just phones, Snapchat, Facebook,and all the other social apps. Without these apps it will be better for me. Or at least that was what I realized when I didn't have my phone.

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:31

I watch.

I watch as peers become increasingly resistant to the wonderful arms of knowledge.

I watch as many cannot exist without the comfort of their phones. 

I watch as children who welcome knowledge get pushed out. 

I watch as politics tear family and friends apart. 

I watch as people are shunned for their beliefs. 

I know what is happening is terrible, and I know it shouldn't be like this, yet the ability to control is out of reach. 

I watch the world around me becomes increasingly violent to facts. 

I watch as corporations and media cherry pick data to mislead the reader. 

I watch as culture and tradition are shunned and forced out. 

I watch as the world is successfully terrorized, yet nothing is changing 

I watch as people become more and more familiar with the sweet, yet deadly, hands of comfort. 

I watch as the propaganda enslaves this free country. 

I watch as we become more involved with the lives of celebrities, we forget to keep our lives on track. 

I watch as the world carries on. 

I am afraid. 

I Am the One

I am the one who changes the leaves

from summer green to autumn red.

I am the one who makes the first snowfall,

coating the earth in a white winter bed.

I am the one who ends the day,

lighting up the sky with dazzling stars leading a path ahead.

I am the one who fills the earth

with light-blue water so clear you can see the sea bed.

I am the one who breathes the loudest,

causing gusts of wind that travel and spread.

I am the one who is often taken for granted,

abused by people who live in my haven.

I am the one who is often treated like trash,

others pretending like I am perfectly treated.

I am the one who needs to be fixed,

the one that is not pretending.

You need to be the one to help me, listen to me, and to heal me,

otherwise I might not be able to change the leaves

from summer green to autumn red.

I might not be able to make the first snowfall,

people should appreciate youtube

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:30

If you go on youtube and say there is nothing cool about youtube, you need to know that actually you can watch anything on youtube. People should appreciate YouTube more.

One reason people should appreciate youtube   more is because you can learn anything,For example you can learn about some Creatures about the Sharks and more about fish and you can learn sign language. you might be thinking that you already know because your a fisherman but you don't know more about it of how to catch fish, where to get the fish, and what kind of bait to get to fish. please learn more about how to learn about fish.

Another reason people should appreciate YouTube more is because you can watch funny things, for example you can watch David Lopez. David lopez is a guy that makes funny things happened in his life. all so you can watch Moana screaming Maui. it's part of the movie but people edited to make this boys singing it in screaming. one night I was looking something that's                                                                                                                             crazy funny on YouTube I remembered when me and my sister watched this video i Thought to myself about him and  I looked up the video and I found what about it and I laugh and laughed and laughed. You might be thinking that it might not be that  funny but once you see it it's going to be very funny that it will open your eyes and start crying.

In conclusion...

believe me if you're trying to get a app buy YouTube you should check it out. try it out now!!!!!!!

2/6/17 as I listen to the vpr radio early this morning, the newsman explains how our countries president would like a trust fund including $25 billion for a wall that keeps immigrants out. Americans murder Americans everday, what are we doing? What are we trying to protect?

The room was cold, dark, and...I think...lonely? Yes, there was loneliness in this room. It wasn't something I could see or touch, but I knew that what had been here before me had never left here. 

Blood. There was so much blood. The floor was stained with it, almost glowing crimson. How did I know there was blood? The room is completely dark. I suppose that, just like the loneliness, I just knew. I could feel it. 

My phone began to ring. Why do I have my phone? Then, it came back to me. I had been on the bench in Greenwood Park, when suddenly, I felt a hand over my mouth, followed by a stinging pain in my neck. I know I had turned around. I know I had seen him, but...I can't remeber, god dammit I can't remember! The phone was still ringing. I picked it up. A voice on the other end was whispering to me. It was the voice of a man, old, likely sick by the sound of his cough. "Turn around," the voice said. I slowly turned. A door that must have been there the whole time unlatched and opened. A bright light entered the 4 ft by 4 ft room. Once my eyes adjusted, I saw him, and I remebered why I was here.

Look Around

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:28

I lie back on the couch, the nanochip in my brain sending me thousands of gigabytes of info per second. I’m learning about the 2010’s, a bizarre period in which humanity had just begun to conquer technology, in which our ancestors had only grazed the surface of interstellar travel, when they still believed that was the future. But ever since the Martian failure twenty years ago, we’ve shut down all space travel agencies and associations, for it simply wasn’t safe anymore. Now, our future is here, on Earth, in these nanochips, which can put us in any environment we want and can teach us everything that humanity knows. The nanochip has put me into the middle of one of the space agencies called NASA. No one is sure why they’re called that. Maybe it was someone’s last name. I look around the spaceship that I stand in. All of a sudden, everything goes black. I open my eyes, my real ones, not the virtual ones. It takes a lot of concentration because I hardly ever do it. With a struggle, I push myself off the couch and stumble outside. Around me, everyone is doing the same. All around the world, people stumble out of their homes and look around. At the world. At our world.

I am the one who notices the amazing blueness of the sky out my bedroom window when I first wake up.

I am the one who sniffs spring in the morning wind as I open the door to let the cat out.

I am the one who pours through seed catalogues: planning, dreaming and scheming.

I am the one who listens for the chickadee’s mating song, “whee whoo, whee whoo” .

Maybe he too is dreaming of green grass and soft dirt?

Does he get excited when the sap starts flowing in the trees?

Is he too looking forward to a warm wind flowing softly over his feathers?

I wonder!

Dear Mr. President,

Listen to the voices.  Listen to your people whose lives are in your hands.  Do not be rash, do not let your anger carry our voices away.  Listen to the protests, do not build a wall.  Do not separate us from the world, connections are the solution, not the problem.  Mr. President, do not take our people away.  The America we live in was built by immigrants; would you have us undo our history?  Do not use foul language to describe our people; every person deserves the same respect as yourself, no matter their gender or ethnicity.  Do not wage war, use compromise and trust.  Dear Mr. President, please remember: without the people's agreement, walls will crumble.  No one person, no matter how important, can tame the public.  Listen to the voices.  Let them guide you.

Sincerely,

America

I walk out twenty minutes early, the cold wind pushed against my hair, in front of my eyes, the lights of Main street destracted me from some of the nervousness creeping up on me.  I couldn't see the traffic only the lights coming near me, even white cars were black, I crossed the street skipping some of the white lines.  The stone of the old building was rough and sharp to the touch, but that wasn't what I was thinking about.  I couldn't stop thinking about the beautiful girl meeting me there, I couldn't tell if she made her hair more beautiful than usual for me or not, but if it was for me it worked.  about ten minutes of waiting I saw her walk up to the door of the movie theatre, that moment was one of the scariest in my life, butterflies flew wildly in my chest.  My first date.

Invisible. What does it mean to be invisible? Not seen? Not heard? Not anything? Being invisible hurts. It hurts because you feel no one is listening. Like you have an opinion and no one listens or even attempts to listen. You’ve tried not being invisible. But it seems nearly impossible. You start to believe that you really are invisible. You realize you really are invisible.

 It was a monday evening an I was on my way home , when my phone rang in my pocket. I reached in my pocket an grabbed my phone, unknown caller.

I didn't, answer the phone, I kept walking home, my phone rang over an over again. I finally decided to answer the phone.

"hello"? I said "who is this"?

It was silent on the other end, I repeted myself. A voice said in a raspy voice "turn Around"! I turn around there was nothing there but darkness an the outlines of trees an houses. The feeling in my gut was awful, an anxious, scared feeling. Maybe the wrong number I thought. So I Stopped thinking about who it could be or if it was a wrong number an i continued walking home. Remind you i was about 50 ft from my house.

I started walking toward my front door when my phone rang again i answered it, the voice told me to "turn around". So again I turn around, an when I turned around I stood there waiting. There was nothing there at all. So finally I turn around to go inside.....

 

an my best friend was there waiting for me, holding a huge fuzzy black an white penguine with a stack of movies an a gallon of ice cream.

She told me I forgot all about my birthday an she was here to celebrate since the day before was Valentines Day.

I asked "why she kept making the calls to me?" "to frighten me"?, an as i was asking.. she stopped me , an told me she wasnt calling me. she told me she had been waitng for me in her car.

My phone rang again i didnt answer , it was an unknown caller again. 3 minutes later it rang again, i answered an said nothing the voice on the other end said "turn around"!
