Over April vacation in the eighth grade, my best friend and I went to New York City with her family for her cousin’s college graduation. While we were in the Big Apple, I encountered a weird reaction to something I had put on my face. I will admit I wore way too much make up for a 13-14 year old and...

Seeing my folder with my homework that's due tomorrow morning and then seeing my iPad with Netflix ready to go with “Arrow”. Watching Netflix is something almost every student can relate to.

I get dressed and go to walk out of my front door thinking that the weather is going to be  beautiful like yesterday, until I see at least a foot of new snow. Great, not only are my clothes not warm enough and I'm freezing, but I also need to shovel. I growl with anger and stomp back inside, wishing...
