Love Moderately


In scene 6, act two of Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence tells Romeo and Juliet to love moderately. I honestly think that this was great advice for these two. They are not moderate people, they are very extreme (considering how they just met and are getting married.) and need the reminder to just be moderate, […]



Do you know what I hate? I hate it when the cord on the vacuum cleaner isn’t wound up perfectly. It’s the weirdest thing and I don’t even know why, but I hate it! If I go to vacuum the front room and I pull out the vacuum from the closet… and the cord is […]

Should Schools Still Teach Shakespeare?


I think that Shakespeare should still be taught in schools. I realize that a lot of people don’t like Shakespeare and find it confusing, but I don’t think that that is any reason to abandon it. Even though he is really old and his poetry doesn’t make a lot of sense, it inspires people. His […]

What I Don’t Know About My Fellow Students


Everyday we go to school. We roam the same hallways, learn in the same classrooms, and see our peers daily. But it’s surprising how little we know about each other. We literally spend hours together with our peers for a year and yet, we never really get to know the people around us. That’s why […]

Work Will Work When Wishy Washy Wishing Will Not


I’m not really sure if I ever had a goal. I mean, I did want a good grade but I guess that doesn’t count for a good goal. I would however like to get better at argumentative writing. I have never been able to choose a side. I guess I just like finding a happy […]

What Makes A Person Great


I’ve just finished reading To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee and If-, by Rudyard Kipling. Each display great attributes of what would make some one great. But what exactly makes a person great? I feel like if the person is honestly trying their best and always looking out for others they are a good […]

To Kill A Mockingbird Review


I though t that the book was fantastic! I really enjoyed it and the message it sent. The book on a whole is how Jem broke is arm. It goes into detail about living in the south and is a classic that reminds us what it is like to be a kid. The plot gets […]

Good Stuff


In To Kill A Mocking bird, Miss Maudie quotes, “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step.” I think that this character was talking about rights for black people, but I think this quote could be used for anything. Anything we do to help the world for good, even if it is […]

An Authority on Courage


Courage can be a tough thing to do or portray. It takes skill, and serious thought, but the truth is, everyone can be courageous. Hi, my name is Rosa Parks and I too had to be courageous. I was going to and from work on the bus when I was told to give up my […]

Real Courage


“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” I really […]
