Warning: Back 2 School Sale


By: Ms. J

It’s time to go BACK TO SCHOOL!! YAYY!! Some of you may not be as enthusiastic and I am not sure why I am considering I am not in school. I think a wave of nostalgia just hit me as I remember back to school shopping and seeing my friends after a long summer away. For now, I am content to be satisfied with Tax Free shopping and discounted prices on summer clothes. However, as much as I would like to go shopping at every store that states they have a sale, I don’t. Why? Because it’s a scam. Let me explain.

World Environment Day 2014


By: Ms. J

“Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level”

June 5th is the United Nation’s call to raise awareness about our environment. World Environment Day is a day to encourage everyone about the conditions that are ravaging the earth. It is our duty to care and maintain our environment so that others after us can have fresh air to breathe and water to drink.

This year the United Nations have joined forces with the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to adopt climate change as its theme. As global warming increases, so does the ocean level. Those who live on the coast whether major cities, small towns or islands will be affected by this over the course of several years. As the sea level rises, many people will migrate further inland causing a disruption in the economy, community and environment. Let us take a stand to fight global warming, not just this day but everyday.

Whether you can balance your time and remember the good upbringing that your parents bestowed onto you. From a financial aspect, many of you might have worried incessantly about how you are going to pay for college, whether it is through loans, grants, scholarships or gifts. I hope you have not only factored in the cost of college but also the means of remaining in college.
