Thoreau’s outlook on government is similar to my own. If rules are in place and there is a government to back it, the less they do beyond that the better it is for the people. I see the government as a basic safeguard for major issues/discussions, but as they control more aspects of our life, […]

Independent reading

My opinion on independent reading is that it is literally forcing kids to read and it makes them hate it. I think the school shouldn’t force kids to read past middle school and let them know that they are a responsible adult by leaving them alone. The book I chose was “Still Waters” and it […]


I had no interest in transcendentalism at first and guess what, I still don’t care. Transedawhatever is boring hippie garbage about being a good person or being divine or something stupid like that.

Fair Week

A whole week off of school is great… unless you get dragged to the hillbilly filled, crowded, grease covered “attraction” that is the Bloomsburg fair on the hottest day of the week. But beyond that, it is still some time off of school, and what better way to spend it than at a friends house? […]
