Friends are special people. You hang out with them, talk to them, tell them secrets, all kinds of things.

When I was in sixth grade I loved to write. It was my first passion before I learned I could sing. I would write poems every day expressing how I felt but, honestly, it would be depressing. Everybody has those days. As I got older I started maturing in my literature. It went from poems to fantasy-styled...

Before we start I want to make clear that I am no Grecian and also no culinary expert by any means. I eat food and I enjoy it, that is all. But if there were any category of foodstuffs that truly satisfies my hankering for hungering, it would be the fine works of nourishment that come out of Greece. Most w...

When I was going into the seventh grade my parents told me that they were getting a divorce. Stunned is an understatement. My life changed completely and at the time I did not know that it was for the better. Shortly after their divorce my mom started dating a man named Johnny. Johnny, also called John,...

Almost everyone who has been to a high school has either been bullied or has been a bully. People should not have to wake up and be worried to come to school.

One day this summer I was on my way to the lake when my mother calls me and asks if I could go to the grocery store to pick up some last minute things. The list was typical: eggs, milk, chips, and cereal. I quickly located the items on the list while gathering other foods that caught my attention. The l...

Spending money is something some people like to do. People like to shop online whenever they can, even if they do not need it. I shop for clothes, shoes, watches, cameras, and other valuables. Everybody has been scammed at least once and never got what was promised. So now I am more cautious than ever....
