Did you know that migraines affect 28 million women in the US, and women are three times more likely to experience migraines than men? I didn’t because I just googled it, but chances are most of you have at least heard of migraines, had a family memb
Do you ever find yourself feeling helpless when faced with the huge issue of global warming? I know that I often do. In a world that seems to be controlled by people who are much older than us, it can be difficult to figure out ways in which we
Once again, we’ve arrived at the wonderful holiday seasons, where everyone is busy, stressed, and/or sick. Such fun times xD
But, around this time of year, no matter what holidays you celebrate, gift-giving is probably included and expected, whether
Ok first off, deep breath. We’re gonna be ok. Take it from me; an old fart high school senior who’s introverted and started out with hardly any confidence. You’ll be fine <3
I'll be honest, high school is terrifying- at first. So is any new and stran
I’ve been playing the viola for about 6 years now, and recently joined a new orchestra. A couple of weeks ago, I made the decision to challenge my stand partner. Now, I had been placed into second chair, and he had been placed into first chair:
I’m getting to that point in the semester where everything starts to feel like it’s really bearing down on me; extracurriculars, homework, studying, passions, and all the pressures that come with being a student have started to get overwhelming.
Ever feel like your parents aren't listening properly, aren't seeking your opinions, aren't seeing things from your perspective, or simply aren't giving you opportunities to talk? Ever feel like you struggle with opening up, can't find a good time, o
The school year has officially begun for me, and, I am sure, for most of you as well. I decided to make one more “Back to School” post before we all get back into the swing of things, and I figured that one of the most important topics I could t
I’m sure many of you are starting to feel the new school year looming over our heads. For some of us, it’s just around the corner! One of the biggest things I think about as the beginning of the school year approaches is organization. It’s the i
We've all been there. One moment you're reading a book, playing a game, doing your homework, or hanging out with friends—the next, all you want to do is scream, throw something, cry, or crawl into bed for eternity. Half an hour later, everything's fi
All of us have felt unpopular at some point of our lives. Sometimes, though, it can feel like that’s all our life is, and all it’s ever going to be. It seems like everyone is ignoring you, like you’re the only one people don’t like. You start to thin
It's super fun to write, draw, and create other forms of art. When you’ve got a lot that you want to get done, however, it can be very tempting to try to do as much as possible at once to make sure nothing gets left behind. But what happens when you
I’m very familiar with public transit--I’ve ridden the bus with my parents my whole life, and on my own since I was thirteen. Recently, I went on a trip to another city, which unlike where I live has a subway. Before I left, I researched its transit
Previously, I’ve written a blog post on finding motivation in writing a story you love, but how do you actually start the darn thing? There’s plots, outlines, character sheets- and even then when you have all of those, just getting the write words ou
Here you are writing your story; you have a great introduction, a cast of characters you love, an intriguing plot… and then the ideas run out. You’ve crafted your antagonist all too well, until they’re apparently unbeatable; your protagonists get int
I'm starting my second semester of college next week. Looking ahead, I have approximately 13 hours in class per week (plus however many hours of homework, class readings, practicing, studying, etc.), plus a 3-credit online course. I'm also working 10
