Opinions: Hindsight: My addiction

I shop online 24/7. Ebay, Craigslist and Bodycandy.com (a source for body jewelry) are the top three that I'm constantly shopping on. I can't go a day without online shopping. It's become one of my addictions. Having hobbies is a healthy thing, but having addictions? Not so much. Whenever...

I hate when people can't tell it like it is. When I tell a story, explain something to another person or just plain have a conversation with someone, I'm blunt, to the point, just straight forward. (At least I try to be 100% of the time.) There's nothing more annoying to me then someone who can...

Lately, I feel like all of the adults in my life are out to get me. I know that we're supposed to respect our parents, grandparents, teachers, bosses, etc. But why respect someone who doesn't respect me? I know I'm younger and a lot less experienced with life  but this is not a one-way street ty...

I was just reading a story on CNN about a banana being thrown at Dani Alves, a professional soccer player, while in a game. But instead of getting upset and reacting with anger, Alves ate the banana that was thrown at him. I love it. When I hear about things like that, I just want to pat that person...

Either the glass is half full or it's half empty. Now I am a happy person almost 100 percent of the time. I tend to make the best out of things if they don't go my way, and I think that being optimistic about crappy situations is a really good thing. But wishful thinking is the complete o...

Yesterday I was watching a Dateline story on an O.A.R. Northwest rowing team of four men who were rescued after their boat capsized. The men were in a row boat... in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Sure, they were trying to set a record, but that doesn't outweigh how much they didn't consider. My...

Okay, obviously I'm not old enough to go and buy a gun yet, but I still want it to be an option when I am of age. To me, having a gun in my home gives me a sense of security. When I was younger, from ages 6-11, I stayed at my mother's house half of the time, and I stayed at my father's house the othe...

Lately I've been feeling overwhelmed. If you've read some of my past columns, you'd know that I get stressed very easily, but lately it's been consistent. And I do not like it. I feel exhausted mentally and physically. I have track every day after school until 5:30 p.m. Depending on what day i...

There was a huge mudslide in Washington last Saturday,March 22.  As of right now, the death toll stands at 16, and the number of missing people is 90. Hearing about this disaster made me think about how lucky I am for what I have. I have a roof over my head, a mother to take care of me, a brother to annoy me all of the time, (I love him anyways) and an abundan...

Okay, so lately I've been trying to watch what I eat, when I eat it and how much I eat. It ain't workin'. The problem is every day is different.  Monday I'll eat the crappiest of foods all day long, and I'll feel fine. Tuesday I won't eat at all until around 6 p.m. Wednesday I'll eat ...

Okay, so I'm assuming everyone has experienced the wrath of karma, right? My definition of karma is when you do something wrong, mean or ignorant and later receive a taste of your own medicine. Without my mother knowing (because she didn't want me to get it done), I got my belly button pierced, Jan. 8. A...
