Finding Your Identity

Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevingne) and Quentin Jacobsen (Natt Wolff)

I think I have mentioned in my previous posts that I am one of the editors of our school paper. In line with this, I wrote a review in our paper for the movie Paper Towns so I wanted to share it with you guys (with some edits to make it more personal blog-ish hehe)


What is an identity? It is defined as the “distinct quality that makes up an individual”. As easy as it is to give its meaning, the difficult part is finding it.

Is Heaven For Real?

Heaven. Has the thought of this word ever cross your mind? At least once? I think of heaven from time to time and imagine what it would look like. Sometimes I picture rainbows and angels and seeing Peter and the famous golden keys. But first of all, is there such thing as heaven? Are all of these things about heaven and hell true? Where do we go after we die? I know it may seem deep, especially for me since I’m only 14, but we have to face reality. Nothing lasts forever, including our own lives, so it’s human nature to be curious about the afterlife.
