Burned Out

October 16, 2019

My favorite type of mail to receive as a kid was when the school district sent out my MAP test scores every June. With my advanced scores in English language arts, math, and science, my parents hailed me as some kind of child genius. As I’d find out, that sentiment would be reflected throughout my chil...

We become so caught up in ourselves, in our own mind and space. We forget to appreciate others, we forget how amazing it feels to give to someone and make them feel joy. The smallest things can make someone's day, week, possibly life.  The first day of school I noticed a girl in my english class. I ...

“Who do you think you are?,” I said to the boy, bristling with pure anger. It had only been our first time speaking, but I already knew everything I needed to know about him. “What do you mean?” he laughed. He knew exactly what I was talking about.  “What makes you think it’s okay to mess ...

Today marks the second day of October, which many people refer to as “Spooky Season”. There is an unexplainable infatuation that teens hold for the month in which Halloween lies, and I say it’s rightfully so.  One of the most attractive features of October is that it is placed shortly after...

It’s not that I think all families are terrible. Dysfunctional maybe, but families care for each other and ultimately want what’s best for one another. More or less. Oftentimes, family members, parents in particular, get caught up in the pressure they put on their children and forget to think ...

Sixth grade cheer practice; it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I had entered middle school and immediately found myself more alone, and with the loss of elementary school friends to what seemed like a river of never-ending new people, I looked for some new ones. I joined cheerleading...

Ocean of Influence

December 11, 2018

Do you feel the image you’ve created on social media accurately reflects who you are? If so, you’re one of many. Posting about our feelings, thoughts, and problems multiple times a day is almost commonplace nowadays, and a large percentage of teens use social media as an outlet for such things. H...

The apple fell very, very far from the tree. No, I’m not talking about the tree being my parents and the apple being me, but rather our generations. Gen X consisted of a major lack in the technology us Gen Z’s have today; technology that has completely transformed how we communicate with each ot...

It is no secret that our society today is extremely disconnected from the world of religion, faith, and theology. When I have religious discussion, it is not typical for the surface of theology to even be scratched. Typically, only a “Do you go to church?. Within Christianity, there are around 33,000...
