Here are some ideas to stop summer boredom:

We live surrounded by ads, stores, commercials etc., constantly being drawn into the retail world whether you work within the industry or you not. Whether you are picking up coffee, running an errand or just passing by, retail has become a part of our daily routines.
If you were to make a poll amongst your friends, most would opt out of working in retail due to misconceptions in the field. It is important to…Continue

I always try not to get upset so easily. I know it won’t make me feel any better, but it’s a natural reaction. It’s easy to dwell on the past and what went wrong—to think back on embarrassing moments or actions you wish you could take back—but the unfortunate thing about the past is that it can’t be changed. So how do you get over it? Here’s what I do:

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the impact that selfie taking has on girls and women… Some sources suggest that being exposed to other people’s selfies on social media can really hurt someone’s self-esteem, while others say that taking and posting one’s own…Continue

Dear Orlando shooting victims,
I cried when I woke up to the news of your injuries and your deaths. It’s human to sympathize. The nation cried and prayed and still cries and prays even though they don’t know you and I don’t…Continue

I actually look up the lyrics and start to realize that the songs have a story about the artists life. I find that in hip hop it shows the struggles the artist when through. The voilence in the songs is the violence that the artist has exprienced in life. The artist dont always have an easy…Continue

I woke up this morning, and nothing was different. The walls were still green. My phone was still on the nightstand. I looked in the mirror, and still didn't look like anybody on my TV screen. The newspaper lying in the driveway still could not tell me that a woman in California had been given any justice after being sexually assaulted.

Last week, I attended the Stay Teen event at the Housing Authority of El Paso. It was great all the things that emerged from that day.

With your entry, you had to tell the audience why do you think the youth should stay away of the adult's problems or why we (teens) should stay the way we are and live our now. For the contest, I chose the category of Writing and…
