I think this piece has different emotions I'm assuming because shes showing the different parts of her brain from her point of view. I love her part two of her brain the sounds of her little brother makes and how happy he makes her. She reminds me of myself and how my life flows sometimes.

This piece gives you an idea of what you'll go through when you are house hunting and the problems that come with it. I can picture myself in this girls shoes going shopping for houses. I think the music they have is pretty funny because it doesn't really go with the interview.

This piece transitions from internet addiction to texting. I think he should have stuck with one subject maybe the whole texting idea because he had a lot more information on that. I like how he had all of the numbers on teens and how much they text, but the thing is are those numbers correct?

I really like this piece because as a senior I can relate to it a lot. I like how he got questions from people that seniors get asked a lot. He does a good thing by naming were he got the recordings from. He makes the listener understand the fear that most seniors have when they think of college, and the things we must do to achieve our goals for a better life.

With this piece it was very emotional and real with what some kids go through with family members. The memories of her father and the tims they had are both good and bad. She interviews her mother maybe, because you can hear the pain and joy in her voice and how she felt with every word. She doesnt feel sorry for herself but happy she had people to be there for her. All together I really did enjoy this piece it made me want to cry but happy.

Jimmy's Story has an effect on me I feel his pain and anger. The realness of what teens really go through i high school and life. How some people decide to just turn their backs on serious problems like bullying. Other the that it was a good piece one thing I think could have been done was get another person maybe someone who seen what happened or the boy who assaulted him?

I just got done listening to We, Youth and I did enjoy it. I liked how Mercedes got different peoples views or definitions about what youth meant to them. How they ranged from age which is good instead of getting the perspective of one person. The use of music was interesting with someone beat boxing in the background it had an old school feel to it. She gives her side of the story like how it was to live in a shelter and how she got through it all, with the help of people and friends there with her. She tells you what she wants in the future to help other people letting them know that their not alone in the world.

I like howCallie uses the different types of music and sound effects for the settings. She has a way of getting the listeners attention which I like. She has a great sense of humor it made me laugh. Even though I was just listening I could picture what was going on in my head. Clearly she has a way with words painting pictures with them. I also like how she is relating to the youth on what some kids do or think during the times of boring summers. I picture her as an out going, spunky girl! Giving good advice on not how to spend your summer.
