Shout out to Jish

I'd like to take a moment to recognize Jish. I read the last post on his blog, and I totally fell in love with it. I really like how when I read it I could hear Jish talking. It's great how he responded. He didn't just say okay this is what I think; he wrote a letter to someone who has been dead for decades. I like what he said as well, like I absolutely agree. Jish you did great. I love everything about it. The link to his blog is down below 👇

My American Voice

I personally need to work on when I speak up. I tend to always speak up, even when it's inappropriate to do so. I know when I shouldn't but when something comes to my head it comes out of my mouth.
 Speaking up is a responsibility we all have especially when it comes to protecting others who are afraid to protect themselves. If someone is being bullied it is a moral duty to speak up and defend the person who is being bullied. Wouldn't you want someone to do that for you?
In my opinion I think you should speak up in any situation that goes against your values. You don't have to be rude or even try to debate. You just have to let it be known there is another opinion and you'd like it to be taken into consideration. Sometimes people just need to hear things from a different perspective. They don't necessarily need to argue they just need another view, and by stating your opinion they are given that chance.
Although I'm all for speaking up, there are definitely…

Team vocab Test

When it comes to the elections of this year many people can anticipate these two candidates to surely accuse each other from doings of the past. Each canadate tries to remain stolid but Hilary definitely outbeats trump. It's aggravating because trump and Hilary are constantly sticking their probosci into everyone's business and venomously attacking each other. With each debate America is left suspended to watch the next one just to see the two yell at each other. Both Candidates try to hypnotize the world into thinking their fit to be president; trying to prove that they can transform this world into something greater, but they simply just illuminate each other's faults.

Keep calm and carry on

Beauty: the pleasing or attractive features of something.
The pleasing or attractive features of what? "Something" is so general. It's crazy how a million different things have become one over time. That something is no longer a thought, a sentence, a touch, or even a feeling, but that something is a physical appearance. I wonder who decided this, because they should feel very ashamed. How can you take something so great, and twist it into something that causes so much pain?
A girl who was once beautiful for her loving nature is now hideous for her lack of contour.
What have we come to this sad generation of mine?
Our eyes are wide open
Yet we are so blind.
Blind to the true beauties in life.
We try and fit in never second guessing if it's right.
We are more concerned with the shape of a girls body Rather than who she is as a person
Why not be blind to appearance. Let's open our hearts and look within.
So what she she doesn't wear make up leave her alone
Who …

Mentor letter draft #1

Dear mentor,

To begin with I would like to let you know I am willing. I am willing to do anything that with help me succeed in life. I want all of the knowledge you can give me. There may be times when I don't want to hear it, but tell me anyway. There may be many times when you get frustrated with me, and I apologize in advance for that. I need all of the motivation you can give, because sadly I lack it. I am going to be a challenge, so I hope you're up for one. I can be very stubborn, so I hope you are strong willed. I know you are just trying to help me and I appreciate that. There will be times when I say I don't need anyone, but don't believe it I need you. I need your advice, your experience, your stern looks, your motivation. I need you to never give up on me, because I often give up on myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm quite sure you aren't either, but if you'll have patience with me, someday with your help, I will be something great. I will make…
