Thoughtful Thursday: Physically tired, mentally wired

November 15, 2018

My family and I are always buzzing with mental energy. Never is the switch flipped off. We can be exhausted after a tough day but are still full of mental energy. My mother, brother, and I were once sitting on the couch on a Friday night. All of us were physically drained from the week. Regardless of...

All my life I’ve lived by my father’s advice: Always be early to any event. Trust me it has its perks especially when it comes to school. Wake up early to get ready for school, you’d be surprised by how much you can get done. You can pick out a nice outfit, maybe do your make up (for all thos...

Thoughtful Thursday: The law of attraction

October 25, 2018

Out of the many things I’ve learned from my mother: she’s taught me the law of attraction. The law of attraction states that what you think you attract, whether it be positive or negative. For example, if you say you’re going to fail or do bad on an exam, chances are you will. It will attract...

There’s something so appealing about being on the school bus. The sound of all the people talking and conversing. The feel and sound of the bus as it stops, starts, and turns. The feeling of sitting with friends and relaxing on the seats. Looking outside while you pass by every car and person. I...

Thoughtful Thursday: Living in the moment

Live in the moment. Such a cliché to many, but a true statement to those who know its meaning. I myself didn’t truly take it to heart until I experienced and understood what it meant. Living in the moment is taking in everything in your surroundings. Take in the sounds, the aromas, the tastes, the sensations, and the emotions. It’s almost like being on a natural high when taking in the moment. It’s such a powerful thing for me. In my junior year, I remember I had no time to finish my mango tea in my first class,...

There’s precisely nowhere in the U.S in which a horrendous mass shooting isn’t possible. The Texas church attack on Nov. 5 is the latest mass shooting in the United States.

This individual had a history of domestic violence, in addition to attacking his previous wife and child while he was in the Air Force. Controlling the guns was clearly not an issue for him since he had access to weapons in the military. It’s...

Parents need to be super careful with their children. There is this new activity going around; some children actually call it game. Let me make something clear. It is not a game! Don’t listen to what your peers tell you. It is extremely dangerous! The choking game is a dangerous practice of tweens and teens in which they self-strangulate in order to achieve a brief high, according to tweenparenting.about.com. The high is the result of oxygen rushing back to the brain after its cut off by the practice of strangulation. The ch...
