  1. http://www.teenink.com/opinion/love_relationships/article/129834/Teenage-Love/

    I read teenage love it was about teens being in love. Teens sweetheart turning into lovers for a lifetime. Also wondering if why some adults don’t believe in teenage love. Who knows a lot teens that got married and or happy.

    Me being a teenager my option is yes teen love do exist. you can find your true love at a young age. It’s possible to get married young and stay happy.

  2. I strongly agree with your opinion. I never understood the whole concept of wearing uniforms. I’m a very unique person and expressing myself is what I love to do. I refuse to look like anyone else. Parents and teachers would say a good reason to swear uniforms is so no one could talk about another because they would all look the same. All young children love to express themselves, and unfortunately when I were in grade school, we all had to wear uniforms. I just felt like everyone else. I understand others may say it prevents bullying and its less stress, but what others say about you, you shouldn’t let it affect you. Be unique and not like everyone else ! If you like what you’re wearing, then that’s all that matters, honestly.

  3. 1.Cyber bulling can hurt many people an many ways.To say the internet was the cause of bullying would be a lie however the internet is an enabler for may students to become a bully I have seen this first hand.thats why I don’t have a Facebook book twitter ect,because some people love to bully people and I don’t like that,that make me feel sad and cry,sometimes that make me want to give them revenge.

  4. http://www.teenink.com/opinion/love_relationships/article/133513/Why-are-boys-so-confusing/

    I read teenage love and the name of the post was called “why are boys so confusing?” this article was basically saying why do boys like the blonde hair blue eyed cheerleaders why don’t they go for average girl with brown hair and green eyes? It was explaining how in movies they start off dating he pretty blonde girl but at the end they end up with the brown hair girl .why can’t it be like that in reality boys date girls just to make them popular they never get to know any other girls

    Me personally I don’t think it’s all the way true about boys just wanting to be popular it’s guys out here who loves a girl with a awesome personality and realizes that beauty is way more than skin deep.

  5. http://teenink.com/opinion/entertainment_celebrities/article/517538/Solve-All-My-Problems-Hero/

    In this article I read about how Superhero’s make a big different in society and how they get admired for saving the world like Batman he is the best superhero that everybody is taking about because of what he do.Our culture Workship an invincible person that helps people out to keep them safe and protect them for danger and evil things.

    I feel kinda good that people believe that a superhero can protect them because it true what people say about them because a lot of people don’t believe in having a superhero because they think that there are not true and that they can save the world or make it a better place.this is how I feel about having a superhero saving the world

  6. The article I read today is about how teens are the first to know everything about celebrity’s.Where always the first to know who’s going with who, or what new album is coming out.The article also states That to much entertainment is bad.Reality shows to much drama and it could effect people’s minds’.

  7. Reflection: I feel that bullying is wrong and needs to stop. Life is to short for people to be bullyied. We need to all work together to stop all this foolishness. We need to step up and fight whoever is bulling someone. We need peace in our communities.

  8. Reflection:I feel that bullying Is wrong and need to stop.lifeis to short for people to be bullied .we need to all work together to Stop all this foolishess.we need to step up and fights who ever is bulling someone.we need peace in our communities

  9. Teenage Love by Meredith M
    This topic is talking about if you can really love someone when your a teenager. One says no, he knows people that have been together since high school but believes they didn’t atually fall in love until they were 20,21,22. Another person believe it is exists. Her mother fell in love at a young age.

    I believe you can love at any age. It’s like saying a child doesn’t love their brother until their an adult because they don’t know what love is. Everyone knows what love is you just have to find the right person to show it. Love doesn’t have an age on it.

  10. I read the Justin bieber article and I found out the Justin bieber is a 16years old celebrity that life is hectic but he still finds time to have fun relax with his friends and time for his little sis and bro justin bieber is just like us a typically ordinary teenager just like me .

  11. Link: http://www.teenink.com/opinion/drugs_alcohol_smoking/article/48104/Drinking-Age-Should-Be-Lowered/
    Name of the article is “Drinking Age Shoukd Be Lowered. It’s written by Harold G in Wyoming MI. Many people who are drinking is because either there peer pressure, sadness, and mostly celebration. In most place the age to be drinking is eighteen , eighty seven percent of high school senior have you used alcohol.
    My opinion on this article is that we should not change or should not lower the drinking age. Because people either abused the chance to drinks or whenever they do. Many young adult mainly teens drink and smoke more teen choose to drink then smoke. My opinion is that the age should still be 18 and up to be able to drink.

    The title of my article is Labron is the best in the NBA today and this artical is written by halldj161. The author of this piece thinks Labron James is the best right now. They think that because he has a average of 25.2, 8.5 rebounds per game, 6.9 assists per game, 1.7 steals per game and his field goal percentage is .537. I can see why they think he is because he is good at what he do.

    Me personally I like Labron James he is a very good basketball player. I enjoy watching him play on tv. The Heats are my favorite basketball team.

    • You didn’t even spell his name right, hahaha! He not the best, Kevin durant is. Hop aboard on the KD bandwagon. Lhh

    • Great job Tae. Make sure you Capitalize the title of an article and put parenthesis around the title of the article. It would look like this: “Labron is the Best in the NBA Today”.

    I don’t think it’s all the way true about boys just wanting to be popular it’s guys out here who loves a girl with a awesome personality and realizes that beauty is way more than skin deep. Plus if you find a true love while your a teenager you learn right from wrong and what’s good.

  14. I don’t agree with the statement. I believe that Kevin durant is currently the best in the NBA. He can’t be stopped offensively and is a big help defensively. He has improved his game for this season, he gets everyone involved in the game.

    Kevin durant is truly the NBA’s best player. He is just to good at this point in his career. His game will just keep developing and eventually his rating will be 99 on 2k. Haha

  15. The title of the article I read is “Should Drugs Be Made Cheap and Legal?” It was By HeadshotM. It was about how drugs make people fiend for them more and if drugs should be cheap and legal. It also talked about how people get hooked on drugs from the first time they try it. Rich people are smart people so they know not to do drugs. It talked about how if rich people get locked up they can bail themselves out. They don’t waste their money on drugs like other people. They are smart with their money. Other people that save up their money could spend all their money on drugs. That’s not a good thing. You should never do drugs.

  16. i think Justin BIeber’s is really complicated due to all the work he has put in to making his albums and he never finds to for fun or anything else he just wants to be an ordinary kid just like the rest of us futhermore i have nothing else to say
