The Misconceptions of Depression

I’ve had depression for periods of time my entire life. That’s not to say that I’ve never had long moments of happiness, I have, but it’s always been fifty-fifty. There are different things that have triggered it, but the dominant reason was not being happy and satisfied with my state of life. I’ve never taken medication for it and I don't want to for the time being.…

Back to School

It's that time of year again. You can see it in the aisles of Target, Walmart, and your local grocery stores that have the supplies ready for buying. Time to come back to school.

Let me be content

Keep searching and asking, then acting. Don't think on the purpose too much and you'll find meaning.

EVEN if meaning, to you, goes beyond school intellect or a stationary, habitual work ethic. The road to finding yourself is a journey.

Before you know it, you'll be so consumed with you that he/she will be that blurry dot in your life.

That dot that was a speck.

That speck that  became a blob.

That blob that  became a figure.…

Being a leader & a volunteer

 You would think volunteering might be a lot of work or boring but, honestly it's a lot of fun. Not only do you make small connection with the girls at camp, but you also meet the creative magical imagination of their brain. Also while the girls at camp are learning cool things, I am  learning fantastic things as well that I wish someone would have teach me or expose me at such a young age. I have learned how to edit a video, the…

Dear editors of magazines,

I think you should not Photoshop because we then the people that are reading the magazines we can't see what their real body/face looks like. I also think you should not Photoshop because some people that are in the magazines that think they look good and fancy but really they are not. I don't think you should Photoshop because some people like how they turned…

Dear Editor in Chief


        Dear Editors of magazines,

I think Photoshop is the cause of why girls are now more than ever insecure. Mainly the models that appear on the magazines are skinny, fit and flawless. But is that really them? Upon seeing all the beauty that they carry, young readers might get influenced to look just as the models do. Seeing someone with their dream body gives them hope that…

To the Magazine Editor's

Dear Editor and Chief,

    What is the whole point of Photoshopping models? I think the true beauty in a person is the personality and the models should who they are and just do whatever is comfortable. Or if you want the models to be skinny choose those who are skinny and not photoshop the skinny ones. And you know whatelse you could do you can choose the model you want in your photo and put them on a diet and make them exercise so they could get skinny on their own and not make them…
