Hookah smoking: Is it safer than cigarettes? Is hookah smoking safer than smoking cigarettes? I’ve been told that the water used in the hookah makes the tobacco less toxic. Answer from Richard D. Hurt, M.D. Hookah smoking is not safer than cigarette smoking. Also known as narghile, shisha and goza, a hookah is a water pipe with a smoke chamber, a bowl, a pipe and a hose. Specially made...
milele asked: Why does your school look so amazing??? Gahh, i'm watching all your videos and i'm soo jealous. My school looks like somewhere you go to drop off trash. Which is really sad since we're like the 5th richest county in the u.s. Apparently -_-
Whoo! I have most of my recommendation letters for scholarships and college sent in, yay! I though that in my good spirits I would give you guys the who, what, when, where, why, and how of asking for college recommendation letters. Who to ask: your guidance counselor, teachers, coaches, employers. Basically, anyone in a position of authority who’s supervised you in some way. They should...

Dear highschoolkids, So, I met this guy at one of my games. He was sitting next to this douche bag and his friend and so I said hi. We talked a while and then I had to leave. We didn’t talk after that. Two weeks later he sees me in the halls and says, ” I never get to talk to you anymore.” I thought he was really cute and funny and interesting. So, I made an effort to talk to him a bit everyday....

Ways to Keep Sane #3 →
The third edition of my Ways to Keep Sane series. It was before AP Bio and my friend said she brought her ukulele for her FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) performance and started playing a nice little tune. I’m telling you you guys, learning to play an instrument is a long, treacherous journey, but once you can actually play the benefits outweigh everything else.
A constant (linear) function and an exponential...
Explanation: When you differentiate a constant function, eventually it’ll turn to 0, but no matter how many time you differentiate an exponential function it stays e to the x.

Until, I, recently overheard two girls in my English class talking. Now usually I would just mind my business but when I heard my very unavailable guy friends name mentioned I decided to ease drop.

don’t even get me started on the scholarship search!
We’ve all heard the same lines that comes with getting dumped. Whether it’s Flava Flave telling you, “yo time is up..gimme yo clock” or you’re a Taurus and I’m a Leo there always seems to be that lingering inevitable unansweredquestion of why. All excuses are followed by a why…then another why and another. Why leads to more whys because we want reason, we want logic. The truth is it’s not going...
