That is why I love soccer. By: Christian Barrera

7: Music There are many people in the world who like music. Well i don't like music I LOVE IT. Music is a big part of my life. I guess that just by listening to music I could get stress out or any kind of emotion that is bugging me. I can't imagine living in a world with no music. Now that would be BORING!!!! I love most music but there are some types that really irritate me. I HATE the kind of songs in which there is constant cussing. I just think that this kind of music is junk to my ears because music is supposed to be something you can enjoy not something that's damaging your brain. Some music i enjoy listening to is the kind of music with a rhythm or a beat. I think that I like music so much i can listen to it 24/7. So yeah some music is great but others not so much. BY KIARA MEDINA

They're both good with changing climates. I personally think that dune buggies are the best. By: Adrian Montanez

Her partner was wearing white and purple. The girls at her party were dressed in short white dress with a little purple belt.Their partners wore dresses and black suits with a purple belt. Next we saw the quinceanera and her dancers.They were dancing Mexican songs. It took 1 hour for them to dance. I really love how they danced. They had 8 girls in a line and 8 boys in a line. Meanwhile, they showed a video about her life. She was talking on the video and she was crying. I don't know why but I saw her crying. Her video was good. Then her video was over. Then everybody clap[ed because the video was good. When it was over it was to give her a doll. Then the parents put on the high heels and crown. Well first of all they got a chair for Daisy so she can sit. Daisy was siting. Her mom and her dad had a doll in their hands. That was her last doll forever.Her doll looked like her and her dress. Her mom and her dad brought Daisy high heels. Daisy's dad put them on her. After that everybody went to dance and guess what? Daisy's mom told my brother that she found a girl to dance with him.

The teachers hide them.Whoever finds the largest egg gets large pieces of candy,but we all still get candy because each egg holds candy. This is my family's special way of celebrating Easter.

17: There are many things to do at South West Plaza. I went there last weekend because I needed new clothes, and my mom gave me some money. First, I went to Aeropostale to buy shirts, jackets, and perfume. I usually buy one shirt at a time because I don't really have a lot of money and my mom gets mad if I buy too much stuff at once. I also, went to the Vans store to buy new shoes for school. Vans are expensive but buying shoes is important because I only have one worn out pair. Lastly, I went to the Converse store to shop for shoes. I didn't find any shoes at the store so I have to wait until next weekend to go back to shop. But, thats OK because I like going to South WEst Plaza for shoes and clothes. Maybe next week I will also take my friend along. By; Leslie Gutierrez Pena

29: High heels are a girls best friends. So many kind of shoes exist. The ones that are more fancy to most girls are high heels. There are too many different styles, different colors, and different brands. The way high heels would look good on a girl would be if you wore a dress or a skirt. You also have to know how to walk in them because that could be a challenge. There are a number of occasions to wear them and enjoy them. Such as to a party, or reunion or fancy event would be the best. I love being a girl in the company of those nice "friends" that make you look good. <3 | by Leslie Bernal

31: My favorite hobby is playing guitar. I enjoy it, because every time I see, touch, or play, it makes me smile. Usually, I play electric guitar, because you can change the sound however you want to use an amp. I like the feeling and the sound from electric guitar. Every Thursday, I get excited. The reason is that after school, I go to a guitar lesson where I learn new codes and songs. Sometimes, it's very difficult to make a sound, because in order to make a beautiful sound you have to grab the strings. If you made the sound you'll have a string mark with a pain left on your fingers. It is hard to learn and play guitar, but still it's fun to play and if you practice a lot and work hard, someday you will be a great guitarist. | by Jeongmin Lim

33: Children should not eat too much candy. One reason for this is that it is unhealthy. Your child can become obese. Another reason for this is that they should not eat too much candy because they can get sick. Some kids of course get hyper. They can annoy you so bad it could be considered torture. They might bounce off the walls or something like that. I know this from experience they will feel horrible. So grown ups don't give us children too much candy or you and them will suffer excruciating pain. So eat something healthy like carrots with mustard and give your child a big smile. By: Monica Leyva
