weekend with teenagers

this weekend i asked my son to invite some friends to go apple picking. ( i really wasnt sure how 'into it" they would be.) He asked about 7 people and they are all very excited. They are 15 yrs old males/females, black, white, spanish albanian. 

 

So happy that they are excited. We will come back to my house for dinner and making caramel apples.

Social Hierarchy of Middle school

I am in the eighth grade. And I am considered a popular nerd. I have friends from basically all the cliques. But I don't really fit in with any of them except my "clique" that I've had since 1st grade. Last year I was a so called popular. and I thought that's what I was. Until last summer I realized that middle school is not about ego or if you're considered 'cool'. I mean yes of course for some people it is, but not for me. I realized I wanted to just be myself, to hangout with my real true…

Are bad days really bad?

Today was probably the worst day of my school year. Or so I thought. The day started out with my parents yelling at each  other and arguing. My parents never argue so this made me frantic. Next I realized my cat was not in the house, so i assumed she was outside. I looked and looked but she was nowhere to be found. 

I went to school oblivious to the 3 spanish tests I had in my 1st period. I had also just found out that my form had not been accepted for a spanish camp that I had been…

Crushing and Sexual Assault

None of you know me, and I imagine none of you will read this, but I am going to approach a topic that is very serious and very important to me in this blog post. 

That issue is sexual assault. 

I have a lot of personal experience with sexual assault, but I have never been as close to it as I got on Saturday night.

As a man, I am more often than not in the position of the aggressor in a sexual assault situation. I know statistics, but they are only…

I don't understand life

I don't understand life. We we're put here without any instructions. But somehow we have come to think the ultimate goal in life is to become successful. What if we're really supposed to just be and not do?

On the Value of Self Expression

I've become rather blase about my life and while not a lot can be done about it because no matter what I do I'm in grad school and that's going to suck I should take whatever outlets I have to feel better.  

What simple methods are there for increasing personal satisfaction 

During a rare moment of meditation in Yoga I thought about what it means to be me and what I'm doing about displaying that.  And what I want to represent and how that would make me feel.…

The Second One

Hello fellow Nerdfighters, it is time for my second blog entry.

Tonight I will tell you what my life is like right now.

First of all, I work as a valet driver at a hospital. As you can imagine, this isn't a glamorous job, but it is putting electricity into my computer and keeping ink in my pens, so I can't complain. Word to the consumer: tip your valet. We work very hard and long hours.

When I come home from work, I shower and then hand-wash my work…

Censorship and public schools is wrong

i have a 10th grade son who is a sponge , loves to learn and has a strong desire to "figure things out". I think censorship hurts kids. I live in a city in connecticut that has a bad reputation for there public schools. There are many reasons (not valid ones) to not send your child to them. 

I send them anyway. I do not agree with private schools bc I think they are suffocating and they depress instead of develop the growth of children. Hiding them from life is a terrible idea. I have…

She has alot of support from family and friends.
