Who Captains Your Ship?

Who Captains Your Ship?

By Kaitlyn B./ Photo Credit: Intermedia Imagine you are on a ship. The ship is large and unfamiliar to you. As you sail through a seemingly endless sea, storms often come. Many of these storms are almost too much for your ship to take despite the size and stability of it. The ship maker was very proficient, but despite the quality of the ship the only thing you can think while you attempt to navigate through the threatening waves is how inadequate your ship seems in the face of such large waves. It's impossible. What's…Read more …
On Your Own, But Not Alone

On Your Own, But Not Alone

By Kaitlyn B. With school starting up again I have been reflecting on all the changes this school year will bring, and all my new responsibilities. I have felt very overwhelmed and I've wondered how I will be able to keep up with my school work and all my extra curricular activities, and work, and between all that trying to find time to spend with family and friends.

Finding Faith in Failure

Finding Faith in Failure

By Guest Blogger Emma We’ve all been down that path. You know, the one where we are feeling so down on ourselves because nothing seems to be going right.

How to Find a Lost Key

How to Find a Lost Key

By Ben T. I am a speed skater. At the Olympic Oval, where I train, I have a locker to keep things safe that are valuable to me. The front desk lends us a lock and key we can use if we agree to pay for the key or lock if it is lost. I made sure to keep my key on a lanyard that I took with me every day to train. One day after practice I looked at my lanyard and saw that my key wasn’t there! I searched the halls…Read more …
