Are words enough to capture feelings?

This year has been a blur. After making our way through books such as A House On Mango Street, The Great Gatsby, and Grapes of Wrath, we have made it to our final book, Catcher in the Rye. It is here we will be examining the question, are words enough to capture feelings? You can take your guess now and see how it differs from my conclusion at the end of this written experiment.  Words. When you hear โ€œwords,โ€ what runs through your head? Is it essays? Book? Newspapers? Is it conversations over the telephone? The dictionary? A baby speaking … Continue reading Are words enough to capture feelings?

Did you know most of the food at grocery stores is thrown out after a certain period of time? Did you know this food isn’t even bad, but laws prevent stores from donating or continuing to sell the food.  This is a disgrace. These laws make absolutely no sense! It would make much more sense to test when the food goes bad – and if money-spending people want the highest quality food in their stores, the food that is a little older should be donated. We often hear that hunger and malnutrition is common in developing countries, but it is … Continue reading

What I do know is that farms need laborers, and it looks like the raise in minimum wage is making it hard for some farmers to break even. This article right here Talks about how some farms are struggling due to long hours, low wages, and lack of man-power, whereas other farms, especially in Napa Valley, are succeeding. They are more esteemed and their bottles of wine sell for $300, as opposed to grocery store-priced wine.  I don’t know the solution, but it is clear that this is a problem. I hope we … Continue reading Vines

Growing Up?

My best friend got her license last Friday, and my other best friend can legally drive minors tomorrow. I’m getting my license in May.  Independent transportation is an important milestone in the life of a teenager. Getting out of the house alone, running errands alone, buying food alone. These are all things that make an adolescent feel liberated. I can’t wait to feel this freedom I can only imagine, this freedom I yearn for.  I will go buy ice cream when I get my license. I can’t wait.  Continue reading Growing Up?
