What’s the Difference Between Being “Fake” and “Nice?”

Being a teenager is tough. At school, we are trapped in a building with hundreds of other teens for hours on end. We’re expected to get along with them, we don’t have to necessarily like them, we just have to get along. That’s the hard part: getting along. It’s not that we can’t be nice,Continue reading “What’s the Difference Between Being “Fake” and “Nice?””

What’s Behind the Smile?

Hello friends! Today I’m going to address something that has been bothering me for a while and that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I’m sure we all know someone who seems to never have a bad day. They’re always annoyingly happy, and generally social, heck, they’re the center of every social group theyContinue reading “What’s Behind the Smile?”

How to Survive Quarantine With Your Parents

Let’s be real. As teens, we often, not necessarily fight, but have tense days with our parents. And as were all isolated with our parents for weeks on end it’s definitely not going to get any easier.

Missing School

Today, for the first time this school year, I am taking a sick day. Now, I’ve come to school every day this year, through sickness and injury. Looking back, it’s ridiculous that I put myself through that. For perspective’s sake, I injured my hip during cross country season and couldn’t walk. Instead of just missingContinue reading “Missing School”

Teen Relationships

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to address something that irks my friends and me: teen relationships, or lack there of. It’s no secret that it’s one of the most anticipated and disappointing part of teen years. Now, before we jump in, I just want to say that these are just my opinions andContinue reading “Teen Relationships”

Your feelings are valid

When someone is seeking comfort and advice, they are often told, “others have it worse” or  “that’s not that bad, last year I…” These types of replies teach us to repress our feelings, because someone else is worse off. When I would cry over a scratch after falling, my grandmother would shoot back, “There areContinue reading “Your feelings are valid”
