"I think the title for this blog is fantastic, I love how you included the word "by-standers". I think more than anything, the by-standers play a very important role in the act of bullying. Not because they are the one's doing the…"

"I agree finding a job is difficult.  I have a job, and one of the main reasons why I got is was because I knew someone who worked there. Essentially, having a connection is probably to most important thing nowadays.Great blog Jessie, and your…"

"Great post! Your playlist is just inspiring and I can tell you put a lot of thought into the music choices because they relate to bullying so well! It is ridiculous how big of a problem bullying is these days! It's scary how easy it is to just…"

Jessica Peterson commented on Jenna Schneider's blog post My 2013 Summer Bucket List
"the trickiest part with bucket lists is compiling one that you can actually complete all the tasks listed! I still have an unfinished one from last summer, but some of the items on there can probably carry on to this year! When you say sleep under…"

Jessica Peterson commented on Aubrey Stegich's blog post Rules of Attraction By Simone Elkeles
"I love it when author's add in more than one of the characters' perspectives, it gives the book so much more depth, especially concerning romance novels! I find it odd that two people of the opposite gender shared a room because I mean how…"

Jessica Peterson commented on Sam Yim's blog post Judging a Book by its Cover
"I read a book if I have never heard of it in my life because then I can be assured I am not conforming to society. Also what if you wrote a book and then no one read it but it was secretly amazing but no reviews, nothing so I want to be that reader…"

Jessica Peterson commented on Samantha Bartolai's blog post The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
"Quality blog Samantha! I would agree that often by judging the cover or misleading titles I may be missing out on books that are secretly great, but you wouldn't know it unless you opened it up and turned a couple of the pages. I guess…"

The Bullied, the Bullies, & the Bystanders

Posted on May 26, 2013 at 2:24pm 7 Comments

These days, kids are mean. Not just the sort of “brush it off” or “build a bridge and get over it” mean either, but a vicious type, that causes the suicide of more and more pre-high school students every year.

The fact of the matter is, that so many of their summer plans are soon to be foiled due to the lack of financial stability that can be found within a summer job! So the solution is simple right?

One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd written by Jim Fergus was a novel that my AP US history brought up in one of her many lectures and one that I may or may not have borrowed in an attempt to get her to like me more. Anyways, at the beginning/prior to me really getting into the book I was really excited because it…

             In his most recent memoir, Heroes And MonstersJosh Riebok delves into his story and addresses the struggles so often found within ourselves. This memoir has to be one of the most creatively adapted pieces I have yet to read. What I most appreciated about Riebok’s work was the honesty and persona his writing took on, and how having a conversation with him would be no different than studying the…
