Not going to worry, but I will take care

When I first heard about the coronavirus, it wasn’t a big deal to anyone at my school. No one was worrying about it. Then time passed and I kept talking about it to my friends and one of them got really scared. But I never worried about it and no...

 

Riding the bus can get a little out of control

I ride the bus to school and back, and it has a record for being the worst behaved bus in the school. I sit in the back with the “bad kids” because my best friend sits there. I do like sitting there. I have gotten in trouble several times on the...

 

My resolution would be to go outside more often

I personally have never made a resolution for a new year. I have planned on it, but never got it done. But if I were to make a resolution, it would be to go outside often every day. That’s because I’m always in the house when I’m not at...

 

Don't feel like myself without my hair dyed

I have dyed my hair several times in my life. The first time was when I had longer hair. I dyed the tips of my hair green. To dye my hair, I had to bleach the tips, but it wasn’t that big of a deal since it wasn’t all of my hair. But after I...

 

Current dream pet would be a hedgehog

I have wanted pets all my life. I already have two dogs and they are irreplaceable. But I really want another pet. It would be nice to have a kitten, lizard or a hedgehog. I really want a hedgehog. I know how to care for one after lots of research....

 

Thinking about whether 13-year-olds should drive

I feel like the appropriate-age-to-drive law is wrong. I feel like you should be able to get a driver’s license as soon as you can reach the pedals. Of course, 16 is already really young. Thirteen or so is, you know, “Yikes.” I’ve never...

 

Both cats and dogs have their good points

I love cats and dogs. I know there are people who prefer one animal over another. No one knows for sure why that’s the case. I am more of a cat person and I don’t know why. I have two dogs and yet I prefer cats a little more. This doesn’t make...

 

Life is better now that I have a younger brother

When my brother Charlie first arrived, I was so happy. I had wanted a sibling all my life and my wish finally came true. Me and my baby brother have a 10-year age gap. Since I was older I could help my mom with him when he was born, and I could...

 

Whatever games you play, make sure you have fun

My favorite video game is Call of Duty: Ghosts. Lots of people play games. I think it’s really interesting how video games started out on these arcade machines and are now everywhere. Did you know Pong was one of the first arcade video games? My...

 

People can get hurt when dogs are left loose

Every day my dad walks our two dogs around the neighborhood. And sometimes I will go with him on my bike. One day we passed by this one house and a big dog was just loose. It was lying down and I didn’t notice it until I passed by. When I looked...

 

Big and small towns each have their advantages

This is a comparison of living in a big city vs. a small city. I used to live in Sacramento, Calif., then I moved to Clovis. The cons of a big city are the traffic and crime. It was always crowded in Sacramento, anytime of the day, no matter what. An...

 

Sounding like a mom - don't vape

I don’t think vaping is good for the human. I saw a commercial the other day and it said that one JUUL pod has as much nicotine as four cigarettes. Other reports say JUUL has the equivalent amount of nicotine as one pack of cigarettes. Of course I...
