Teenagers Suffer Stress Too!
Many people believe that stress is for adults or people with a lot of problems. Most people believe that young people, especially teenagers do not suffer stress. However, let me define stress. Stress is a distraction from our true selves.
Education is the Key!
How many times have we heard this phrase being thrown at us over and over again? Plenty, but despite it we can’t deny agreeing with it! Being educated is quite different than having an education. What separates them apart is the knowledge to practice your learnt capabilities in your field of work.

Teenagers and Facebook
Who does not know what Facebook is these days, really? If you do not have a Facebook account you have friends who keep you updated with what is going. But these days it’s hard to think of a teenager not being on Facebook.
Town Teens’ Views on Town Clock
We have heard complaints, we have seen a protest and strikes on the television, comments and remarks on the newspaper - adults against the big clock to be put on the middle of the front street. Every adult has had a say in this except for us youths. So this is why I decided to ask my fellow friends: “What do you think about the town clock?
Who are Your True Friends?

The Sweetness Factor
We all know what makes our ice cream sweet. We know when our coffee has been over sweetened and what’s wrong with too many sweet cookies? But is your boyfriend/girlfriend sweet? Perhaps she/he cooks a dinner for you; you call each other every minute just to say I love you; your boyfriend gives you flowers every once in a while or when he tells you are the only girl for him without lying!

Am I beautiful?
The media, magazines, television programs, movies, portray what good looking and beautiful IS!! But they are wrong. As beautiful as they might seem, the real fixation is that they are Photoshopped. I’m not saying all, however most of them. In such cases teens believe “OH IF I’M NOT SKINNY I’M NOT BEAUTIFUL”. Don’t get me wrong either.
You probably saw it on the news or on Facebook – a poor timid school boy being punched in the face by a bully! After the poor kid had had enough, he picked up the bully and body slammed him onto the floor. And after his actions, the school was planning on punishing the boy who was being bullied. Isn’t that crazy? The poor kid had enough of the physical abuse and decided to fight back.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall!
- By Gabriela Nuñez, Teen Talk Reporter Talking in front of or to the mirror is nothing that you want to boast in public. But let's face it, there are so many who do this but keep quiet about it. When you do so, you are actually talking to yourself. Do you know that it is actually okay to talk to yourself?

Do I Need a Mobile Phone?
- by Gabriela Nuñez, Teen Talk Reporter Mobile phones are becoming ever more popular everywhere. They are convenient. Your friends and parents can contact you anytime, anywhere - and you them. Some models allow you to exchange short text messages, which is the latest way for young people to feed their urge to communicate. There are even mobile phones that can connect you to cyberspace, providing access to Web sites and E-mail.
The Evils of Gossip!
GOSSIP can fill your life with more intrigue than a feature film. When our parents were in their teens, the latest buzz was most often spread by word of mouth. Today, though, gossip has gone high-tech. Armed with e-mail and instant messaging, a boy or a girl with malicious intent can tarnish your reputation without even speaking a word. All it takes is a few keystrokes to send a vicious rumor on its way to dozens of eager recipients.
New Year's Resolution
THE NEW YEAR for most people is for a new beginning, a new life, a new change. Most teens look forward for new opportunities in making better decisions, better choices, and most of all starting a better life free from all the wrong and silly mistakes we do. Most of us wait for this special time to improve our behavior in order to get along with our friends, perhaps our teachers and our surrounding especially with our parents. The other percentage of teens takes this opportunity to commit themselves in one way or another in something that they believe in. Some other teens take this new
