Writer's Block: School days
Do you think kids should learn about sex in school, and why?

I think it should definitely be age appropriate, but taught. I think it should be balanced, teach the importance of safe sex, but at the same time place a lot of emphasis on good and bad reasons to have sex. Make sure kids know they don't have to have sex just because their friends might be, and that getting attention is never a good reason either. I definitely think that low self esteem is what leads a lot of kids, especially girls, into having sex too early. They should be taught to do it when they feel they are ready, not when that "hottie" in their class is ready to take advantage of them. Also, boys should be taught that they don't have to have sex to be more "manly", they should also be taught to grow up at their own pace, and to never pressure a girl into having sex. But since most of that usually goes in on ear and out the other.... teach safe sex and birth control, so at least they know the consequences and how to prevent STD's and pregnancy.

Writer's Block: Forever young
If you found a magical stone that could keep one person young forever, would you keep it or give it to someone else? If the latter, to whom would you give it?

I could say I would give it to someone else, but this is my journal, I am gonna be honest. I would keep it for myself. one of my biggest fears is getting older and boring. It's not about getting older in age, that is something that has to happen. But we choose to get "old" as in stop liking the things we liked when we were younger and stuff.. I refuse to get old in that aspect.

Writer's Block: Put it all together, it spells Mother
What's the most important lesson your mom taught you?

I can't really think right now. It's too painful to think about my mom, I miss her. Her final letter to me said that one day I will find my purpose in life, my reason for living. She said I was hers. That is really all I know to say. I guess just taught me to keep trying to figure out why I'm alive, and what I'm really meant to do. I better stop before I'm hysterical.
