7th Grade Reflection


I arrived in August with open arms and wide eyes. It was my second year at public school and I had fallen into the swing of a larger school last year. This year would just be a repeat of the last, I was sure of it. But I soon realized that was not the case. […]

In All Honesty

In bad is there a complete absence Of good? Can there be Iove, Without hate? Health, Yet no pain? How can something purely, perfectly be […]

Hypnotized by Shel Silverstein


How would you like to get hypnotized? Stare deep, deep into my eyes. Now you’re getting drowsy, falling deep Deep, deep, deep–asleep, And I have you in my power. Mow the lawn for half an hour. Shine my shoes, trim my hair. Wash out all my underwear. Do my homework, scratch my back, Cook me […]

My fingers tapped Tapped to the song of my nerves. Frantically, nervously, quickly. My heart raced Raced to the song of my fears. Uncontrollably, anxiously, rapidly. My knees shook Shook to the song of my distress. Hysterically, apprehensively, silently. Anxiety chocked my sanity. Tugging me away from the logic and the ease of life. Fear […]

Expository: Why Interrupting Is Annoying By Halle and Carly


“What’s the weath—” “Then I was at—” “I can’t be—” “Why would to—” Interrupting is quite annoying. First of all, interrupting causes you to lose your train of thought.

My heart pounded into my ears, beating so fast I thought the arteries would burst. My knees trembled as I read through the speech for the thousandth time–I couldn’t mess this up.
