When I first started thinking about this blog, I had no idea what the topic of it was going to be on. I guess I figured I’d write about something I know well. Every time there’s a paper due or a project that has to be done I struggle to complete it on the last possible day. And every time I promise myself that the next time I’m going to get an early start, but it never happens. I think for some…Continue
Lately in the hallways all you see is girls that look like they just got back from Mexico. When actually they are just going to the tanning beds. You can't walk in the halls and not see someone that looks like they rubbed cheetos all over themselves. Girls at our school are self conscious about everything on their body: their hair, weight, height, and now their skin color. They look around and see other girls look tan and beautiful, so they feel to be like that they need to go tanning.…Continue
Sorry this one is a wee bit late, but better late than never right?
Ok so I'm sure I'm not the only person who feels this way, but I personally feel that media is abusing freedom of the press. I'm mainly talking about most magazines dealing with pop culture or shows such as TMZ. These institutions, I feel are taking what Roosevelt called for, that being "muckrakers," and taking their "muckraking" a little too far. Muckrakers were…Continue
All the juniors at Fremd high school keep hearing the word college. The word keeps being said more and more and that's how you know it is getting closer.

If this is your scenario you are reading…Continue

I was listening to a song by Chris Brown called Crawl. Chris Brown sings about how he was at a really low status and brought himself up, and how he regrets his mistakes. I started listening into the song and the lyrics, it made me think about Chris's career. Then I remembered one saying by Isaac Newton. What ever goes up must come down. Newton said this was a law for gravity, but I think it is a law for everything. When Chris started his music career, he became very popular,…Continue

What do we think of Lady Gaga? Is she someone to look up to or just a freak that we all think is weird. Lady Gaga was raised in a normal Italian family in the lower side of New York. She began singing as a young child, and by age 19 she signed with Def Jam Records, but most people didn't recogize her until her first hit single came out "Just Dance" and that's when the Gaga craze hit. It seems that every award show that she's at afterward I always hear about her…Continue
So in choir we are doing this big project on time periods like the classic era and the romantic era stuff like that. So one of the parts is looking up composers. As I was reading about all of these brilliant men ( sorry not many if any women composers back then ) did they ever feel pressure to be the best, to out do what people before them…Continue
Like a alot of people i had a difficult time coming up with a blog idea, and when i thought of one it was already taken. In History we've been talking about some of the amendments latley, for example the, 19th which gave women the right to vote. This made me think of the 2nd amendment which is the right to bear arms. I know this topic best so i decided to…Continue
All this talk about immigration and our family history projects really got me thinking. In America nationality is much more abundant than it is in other countries. If you think about it there are about 200 countries in the world, and most of those people's ethnicity is the country they live in, but in America we come from a broad variety of cultures. The thing is though when we all get mixed together there is a part of us that just automatically…Continue
Fresh cut grass, the singing of the national anthem, the pitcher throw the first pitch and you hear the sweet crack of the wood bat. That is america's past time but now of days when you go to a college baseball game they use aluminum bats. Does this really help them prepare for the pros? Also aluminum bats make the game a lot more dangerous. There was a New York city that wanted to ban aluminum bats because of childs death.…Continue

I guess you could say that in our generation, tv is a main factor in our lives. It's our main source of world news and its even a way to relax. A lot of people say that watching too much tv can "rot" a childs brain, but I have found that you can actually learn from some cartoons I have watched.
If you know me really well, you would know that I love Spongebob and I watch it pretty much every day. When was younger I didn't really notice it much, but now…Continue
