    Society often includes negativity and draws on the youth as victims to spread negativity. Most of the time young people are caught in crime because of the criminals that are in the neighborhood, community and […]

    Making my mark in Stony Brook is very important for me. All my life I have felt that I’ve been on my own with support from my mom of course but I felt that i didn’t accomplish anything of grave importance. I’m […]

    • This post is very appropriately timed. We are in the season when we should be thinking about what we can give back to our communities and the less fortunate members of them. I also like your discussion of the difference between being famous and being infamous, being remembered for the right reasons and being remembered for the wrong ones.

  • Call of Duty WW2 is such a great game. I’m sorry if I sound like a complete nerd but I’ve never been this excited to have played the new Call of Duty. I say new because as some of you know well, probably a few of […]

    • Feel free to let your nerd flag fly.
      I admit that I don’t play video games, but that’s only because I think that if I started I would become OBSESSED (that’s how I tend to operate; I have at least one obsession running at a all times, sometimes more). It is good that you have found a way to make sure that your studies don’t fall behind while you play.

  • For my art analysis essay I would like to write about Jay-Z’s music video “Moonlight.” I am a big fan of hip hop. My brother introduced me to my love and passion for hip hop music but as I got older this passio […]

    You have got to get the new Air Jordan with the with the reflective jumpman logo. You need to get the new Stussy line of graphic tees. Everyone is wearing the new Nike kicks. Why wouldn’t you get Yeezys, they’re […]

    • Interesting blog post. I love the way that you incorporated all of those different brands into your piece–it gets to become overwhelming, doesn’t it? If this is something you are interested in, you might want to check out the difference between use value, exchange value, and sign exchange value. It’s a concept developed by Marx, and it does help to explain the appeal (and the cost) of brand names.

  • Time. We’re running out of it day by day. The glass is half empty. We are all going to die one day. There is too much evil. Too much violence. Breaking News: Las Vegas Massacre, hundreds injured. Breaking News: […]

    • I really love how you show the overwhelming nature of breaking news. I know that I personally get anxious every time my phone vibrates with a news update (they are never good, are they?). The news certainly makes the case that things are spiraling out of control (and in some ways they are), but out of all of the bad, I do think there is a glimmer of hope and love, on a human level. People coming together in solidarity, working to help each other–those are the places where I look to for hope.

    “Yo, what you guys want to get afterschool?” “Wendys, McDonalds, Burger King…” “Whatever you guys want.”

    In the past two years fitness and a healthy lifestyle have shaped me. Sophomore year I weighed close […]

    • Your observation about the availability of food is really important. It is hard enough to eat healthy; it is impossible when healthy food is not available (it is also problematic that healthy food also tends to cost more than empty calories). It is amazing how one’s attitude toward working out does shift and it goes from punishment to something you actually enjoy. Keep spreading the good word of healthy living.

  • Love is a strong word. Loving someone is different for everybody. We have the occasional men and women who slip the word love into the equation to favor them in the long run. Selfish reasoning. People nowadays […]

  • Horror movies aren’t that scary. Some people may say it depends on the movie and it depends on the person watching but honestly there hasn’t been a horror movie that I’ve watched recently that has completely scare […]

    • You provide a good analysis of why horror films are scary and why it gets harder to scare people as they get older. I like that you tie that theory into your analysis of it. I have to confess, though, that if your thesis is true, I have a lot of growing up to do. 🙂 I haven’t watched horror films since The Ring scared the crap out me. I’m too much of a chicken.

    • This was a very intriguing to read this because I never actually thought about the maturity part of this. Like I completely agree with you about clowns only picking children because they are easier prey. We as adult’s are more aware and less naive to certain things. And I also don’t get scared of scary movies, the reason being that I can predict what’s going to happen.

  • Learning is always memorable to many different people. Whenever we learn something new it can seem memorable because of how we learned it. Everyone has a different story to their first anything and a different […]

    • I agree that learning is so important (that is probably why I seem to have decided to never leave school). The story that you include about your father teaching you to ride is really important and effectively illustrates your points about mentorship and growth.
