I can’t believe it’s May already. It's strange, I want to say that this year has gone by fast, but if I think about all the things that happened and all the places that I've been to, it seems like I’ve been here forever. This year has been a year full of new discoveries, new relationships and new experien...

For winter break I flew to Minnesota for a week. I stayed at my host parents’ old home city in Bemidji, and I got to meet their families and spend my break with them. Minnesota is a very pretty state, and I got to experience my first white Christmas. Where I live back home in Italy it gets cold...

I noticed I started to outgrow some of my friends my freshman year. When I first began high school I wasn't motivated to have really high grades, and I cared more about my social life than I did about my next geometry quiz. I no longer talked to my genius friends who would study all the time and started ...

My name is Luisa Dalton, and my life, in almost every way, is that of a typical high school student: I’m a senior, stressing about my future, not understanding my calculus homework, complaining about waking up early, and I love petting my cute dog after a long day of school. However, my  “l...

I find it kind of funny that I am sitting here writing this blog when one, I am a terrible writer, and two, I am drowning in school work. We have been in school for a few weeks, and already I have missed five days. So you can see why I am feeling a little overwhelmed with balancing my school work and vo...

I have finally decided what school I want to attend, but I have not applied yet. Something about finally putting all my work together over the past four years is nerve racking and scary. The second you have to write about yourself and what you've done in high school you'll never feel good enough. It alwa...

I’m Genny Suliman, I’m 17 and I’m living the dream of my life. I am a foreign exchange student from Italy. Back home, I live in a very small town in the north. All my friends live 30 minutes away from me. I usually take public transports to meet them, but it’s not as bad as it sounds. That's on...
