Healthy Relationships: The Fundamentals by Jer Relationships sure are awesome! You meet someone--at a party or school event--and start talking, get to know them a little, and pretty soon you're thinking, “Wow, this person is really cool. I think I want to spend more time with them.” So you end up going on a couple of dates, or just hanging out for a while. One thing leads to another, and suddenly you're “together.” Excellent! Congratulations. However, from the first moment you set foot...

Online Safety and You: Protecting your Computer by Jer If you spend time online, you know how great the Internet can be. Through the Internet you can access games, music, movies, books, educational resources (like dictionaries and encyclopedias), online communities and their members, market sites (like eBay), and of course, just about any bit of information you could need. However, even with all the advantages of using the Internet, there exists a darker side. Hackers that patrol the...

Know Your Rights - Bullying at Work Written by: Casey, Katrina, Jessie, and Shaz We have all heard about students being bullied at school, but many of us do not realize that bullying is also quite common in the "real world". We assume adults would put a stop to bullying, right? What if they were the ones bullying? What if they were encouraging others to bully, leading by example? What can you do? Bullying can happen anywhere, not only in the form of physical assault but also as verbal...

The Many Faces of Grief by Gidig and Jessie Losing someone is never easy. Whether they are a loved one, a friend, or an acquaintance, we often find ourselves at a loss when faced with death. Even the death of a stranger can make us feel sad, small and alone. Many times, we are left wondering “why”. When we lose someone, we may lose a piece of ourselves, as well. When confronted with death we are also confronted with the reality that we, ourselves, will not live forever....

Dress for Success: A Guide to Dressing for Interviews by Jessie Employers are looking for dynamic, eager, and intelligent employees. When you are going to an interview, you might think the most important thing to do is make sure you don’t stutter. But when it comes down to it, the most important thing about you may be how you look! A prospective employer will value willingness to learn, so knowing more than everyone else might not be the most important thing. Other times, an employer...

Testing Times: Coping With Exams Written by: Shaz Exam time has arrived, the sun is shining outside, but you are stuck inside hitting the books. You may be feeling too much pressure to focus. For students in the process of taking exams, it isn't fun. Exams, regardless of whether for school, university/college or for professional qualifications, can all be stressful. There is often a lot of pressure on young people to do well before and on exams, causing what is called "exam stress". All...

Bullying Written by: Sabrina Well, I noticed that there wasn't a thread that basically provided education on Bullying 101. Anti-bullying is something that I really have a passion for. I have participated in many workshops and have also created a few initiatives and prepared presentations in order to prevent bullying from occurring in our society. I understand that not every situation can be prevented and therefore, I wanted to provide a simple Bullying Guide to help those of you out...

Teen to Teen. Let's talk. By Kaylee. High school, the hardest time in a teenager’s life. With the schoolwork, preparing for college, parents, and the stress of finals can really make us feel the pressure. We feel out of control, but imagine dealing with all of the above mentioned, and also dealing with the battle of your own body. Some teenagers do just that, and some even develop an eating disorder in the process. I am one of those teenagers who deal with body image issues. My name is...

Peer Pressure By Sabrina “Come on! Just try it. It’s only one joint. What do you have to lose? Hey, I’m giving it to you free here. Why won’t you just take it?” There are many people who have been in a situation where they have either been the one saying something similar to this, have been the one someone was saying it to or could have heard someone else saying it to someone. As you can see, this particular situation is talking about smoking marijuana (weed, pot, etc.) If I asked you...

Have the urge to self harm? So, I see people around here all the time with strong urges to self harm. Let's go over something. The best definition of urge, as in urge to self harm, that I can find, is an "Instinctive Impulse". That does not say, that an urge is when you need to self harm. You never ever need to self harm. Remember it's a want. Like wanting ice cream on a hot day, or hot cocoa when you come in from the cold. Though wanting ice cream and hot cocoa are easier to say no to...

A Guide to Depression Statistics indicate that one in eight adolescents may struggle with some form of depression. This thread contains information on dealing with and overcoming depression. Although everyone feels fed up, sad, unhappy, or miserable at times, depression is a more extreme form of these emotions. Sometimes, we feel there is a cause for our depression: the end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, a failed exam, or an illness. Other times, however, there doesn't...

How to Start a GSA Jessie (Asylum) A GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) is a group of like-minded students (usually, but not always) that gather to share experiences, socialize, or organize their efforts. A GSA doesn’t have to be politically motivated, but it can be! Students in High School start clubs for a variety of reasons. Maybe you want to change your schools non-discrimination policy to include sexuality, gender identity and gender expression. Maybe you don’t need to do that, and just...
