$1000 for what?

If I had a $1000 and I had only one hour to spend it at Walmart only…I would spend it one at least 3 long boards for a total of $368.59 leaving me with $631.41 to buy me a new phone around $150. Now that i have $481.41 I would buy a xbox one and games for about the price of, $243.12 and then turn around and use it to buy some active clothing for football with prices around $100 for everything I want. Now that I have $138.29 with about half a hour left i would probably buy some slides for $30.00 which leaves me $108.29 which will be spent on some food items for $80.00 leaving me $28.29. I would take the $28.29 and take the rest to the McDonalds in Walmart.

The reasons why I would buy these items are simple; I would buy the long boards because I used to long board with my buddies back in Florida and we had so much fun but my board broke in half so I need a new one. I would buy a new phone because the phone I have now is messed up badly and glitches, with the xbox one would be so I could play online with friends that live far away from me and reconnect with them. Clothing is just for football use only, and the slides are because my slides are worn down and falling apart but the food is just cause I’m hungry right now…..


Who is the hero?

One person I see as a hero is my mother because she has done so much and gave up a lot of things for my brother and I. She would go a day without eating to feed my brother and I and she always said we would have a better life soon. She was right because throughout the years we progressed and she grew into a better person and showing us we can be whatever we dream to be and that nothing can stop us because nothing stopped her to get us where we are today as my brother is a hard working 21 year old and I’m a hard working 17 year old, going to school and not doing things I shouldn’t be doing.

My mother has done so much to get to where she is at today because she never stopped believing we would make it to where we are today and she never lost hope in the belief nor did she stop striving to keep that hope alive. She has been through a lot and i can’t thank her enough for everything she sacrificed for my brother and I and that how much she has been through for us and how she never gave up! Now I call that a hero!

Prom from a Teen


Prom is a night to remember for people all around but others think twice as some wanna go to prom for after parties or dinner or other activities after prom. Some do go to prom for the music and the dance but also to simply relax and have a good time with a date or group of friends they might go with.Logo_APTR-NEW-OFFICIAL.jpgDuring prom a lot of dancing takes place with talking and the great music they start to play. All proms at least have one slow song or more then one but also there is something special about prom a lot of students, that are seniors, look forward to such as, Prom King, Prom Queen, and also best dressed248867-standard.jpg

Most responses from students that are going to prom are;

*Are you going to prom alone, with a date, or with a group?*

“I’m going with a group because I feel like you can go as a group and a date but still have fun like you are there with just a date but when fun songs come on you can dance funny with those friends.”

-Kyree Carter

“I’m going with a date because it’s a night to remember and make memories and why do it alone when you can go with a beautiful girl and have a night of your life dancing forĀ multiple hours.

-Brett Berry

Whether you’re going alone or with a date or even a group, just remember to always have fun and always make memories at your prom. I asked others what their opinion was because it’s nice to know who likes prom and who doesn’t.

*What is your opinion on Prom?*

“To me prom is a little overrated because people take it a step over then what it’s supposed to be.”

-Micheal Reyes

“Prom such be more dancing then anything else out there because it for you to still feelĀ young and dance the night away.”

-Shakim James


The Beauty of a Senior


I took this photo in Courtyard by the band hall and standing above her us portrait.


This photo was taken in the lunch room courtyard with a tree in the picture using it to kind of outline her in portrait mode.


The photo is also in the lunch room courtyard and its using a tree also with portrait mode.


This was also taken in the courtyard by the band hall and using portrait mode to capture a picture of her hair spread out across the grass.


The last picture was taken in the lunch room courtyard to recreate the third photo but with better lighting.

Instalife or Instagram?

Instagram is a popular photo- and video-sharing app that requires only a couple of touches to produce retro-looking projects and then share them with friends and other Instagram members. With recent updates, the app adds video, letting you add filters and post to your feed much like you do with photos. Instagram has over 2 million followers due to it’s amazing features and quality when you upload a photo or video and how the filter goes so well on the photo and post that you upload.


Instagram lets you connect with your friends, family, fans(if you have any), and just people with the same interest such as taking amazing photos and uploading them and letting others enjoy the photo you uploaded. people use the app because of 3 reasons.

  1. takes time away to get their mind off other things
  2. it lets them connect with friends and lets you see their amazing photos
  3. the app is fun to use and also lets you follow celebrities
