It's finally here! Yes, my new series is coming! But wait, before I start, I'd like to do a page on the Holocaust. I feel that this was a point in time where it showed the worst in some and the best in others. So sit back, relax, and enjoy reading!

In the night after a sweet summer’s day
The sun leaves behind the moon at its place
Roaring waves crash by on the ships at bay
A cool, crisp breeze blows the hair from my face
It’s hard to compare the stars light above
The way their beauty shows a path to tread
Very easy it is to fall in love
Can’t steer your eyes from the black cover of dread
The illuminated sky now seems dark
Is that a cackled laugh I hear from far
What happened to that peace I felt from the sparks
Blinded from the dark that kept me to par
This night has given me a cost to pay
Try finding me here if you dare to stay

A week ago we watched a movie, Cyberbullying. It's about a girl who gets bullied and it almost takes her life. Her mother tries to get a law passed but can't because it doesn't physically harm the victim. In the end, the mother does get a bill to be written, and Taylor, the victim, tries to live her life as it was before.
In the past decade, there have been many cyberbullying cases as technology evolves. Taylor and her family was lucky. They didn't lose a daughter, sister, friend. Some were not as lucky. Take Megan Meier for example. She registered for a MySpace account and befriended a fake profile. Later on, he started bullying her and in the end it was only one message that did it. Only one message that caused Megan to take her life. This world would be better off without you.
A law is being waited to be passed. Now, if you are a bully, you can't only be expelled from school, you can be arrested. People think they can't get into trouble if they're saying bad things on the internet about a person. They think, because adults aren't supervising them every minute of the day, they have the right to do whatever they desire. They're wrong
Cyberbullying is no joking matter. It's serious. Now that something is being done about it, it is serious. Sometimes it's not only the bully's fault. If your the victim you need to shut down the site right away. It can get out of hand really easily. Kids think parents are only there to admonish them. They're there to help you when no one else is. Listen to them. Megan was also told to shut down her MySpace account. She didn't. I'm not saying it's always the victims fault, but they have a decision to act. Suicide is never the answer. It's just another way to run away from your problems.
You have a choice. Stop cyberbullying. Take down your account, walk a mile in someone else's shoes, don't be afraid to help. You can make a difference. It all starts from a choice. Your choice.

In the night,
The stars shine bright
Who knows what's beyond the light?
For when it's dark,
There will be light,
But who knows when it will shine all night?
|Sirius, My favorite, and the Brightest Star|
As you have read my little poem, you can tell I'm a fan for the stars. I don't mean actors or actresses, singers or dancers. No. I mean the ones up there. The ones shining bright above our heads, those tiny, little balls of light. Since the past couple of months, I've taken an interest in the stars.
|The Constellation, Aquarius|
The way they shine to show us a path. The way they form to create a constellation. The way they give us hope. Uncountable they are, and mesmerizing in each and every way. There's galaxies and a whole universe full of them. They hold a mystery just waiting to be uncovered.
Haven't you all wished upon a star, waiting for that wish to come true? Experience the wonder of knowing what's out there? I have. Curiosity is the one emotion that never leaves my side. Asking millions of questions to finally get answers is one of the things I love to do. I want to know what's out there. Is it heaven, or is it just more stars?
People say the ones who've passed are among the stars. They're one of them, watching us, guiding us to the right path. It's like they're their with us, always willing to help. There are theories, and there are fantasies. Who really knows what's out there?
One day . . . Someday I wish to know. I wish to lay out a blanket on the fresh, green grass and explore. Just watch. Take a telescope, a book, and just watch. There in the calmness of nightfall, with the chirps of the crickets, watching the sun bade goodbye and waiting for the stars to come and greet me hello.

“Time goes by fast when you’re having fun.” Well isn't that quote true? Two years ago, I was walking through the doors of Herbert Hoover Middle School as an anxious sixth grader. Now I’m already an eighth grader hardly believing that sixth grade ever happened. Where did the time go? Certainly not out of the window! I know it happened, but why so fast?
The past two years have been a great experience, and I will always cherish them. This year though, it’s different. It’s like fifth grade all over again. We’re at the top of the world! The sixth and seventh graders look up to us. Of course with every year our responsibilities, homework, and . . . everything increases. Though even with all these cons there are pros. We have two electives instead of one, the new ones being technology education and home economics. For field trips, we get to go out of state to visit two of the country’s main historic cities, Boston and Washington D.C. There’s much more to being the senior most class than you would think. It’s only a week since school started, but I’m getting used to my classes quicker than I expected. The teachers are all nice, some calm and sedate, and others loud and bold. Classes aren’t as different, but definitely more interesting than they used to be. For example, in Social Studies, we get to go more into depth about the immigrants coming to the country, and about the historic American Revolution. Don’t let the fact; I’ve only had one week of school fool you because, the school year is in full swing. I’ve already had my first two quizzes! Yes, along with homework, the amount of studying you have to do for tests and quizzes have also increased.Friends are the ones who stay with you every step of the way. They help you when you need it especially during middle school years. In my first year, one of the things I was worried about was meeting my old friends and making new ones. Later, I found out I had nothing to worry about. I don’t necessarily have the same friends I did in elementary school like, and I’m fine with that. As long as I have friends with me, I know everything will be alright.
