Disadvantages Of Social Networking Websites - Erika Vallensia

Nowadays, social networking websites cause a lot of problems to teenagers around the world. It is because teenagers easily trust social networking websites. 

Firstly, many teenagers are addicted to social networking websites with online gaming. For example, teenagers keep playing online games with other people over the internet. They are willing to not eat every meal and not sleep every night because they are too excited to finish the games first. They become addicted to online gaming. I do not know why parents do not take any action on this serious situation. Is this because parents are too busy with their work and have no time for their children? Do they even care about their child? How could the parents do this to their own child? It can be a big problem for the teenagers in the future. 

Besides, social networking websites can make teenagers become depressed so they are willing to hurt themselves or commit suicide. For example, some teenagers have too much stress and give up on life. It is because they can't accept any negative and sensitive words or comments from netizens on social networking websites. 

Furthermore, teenagers can be fooled by a smart scammer. For example, the scammer will call, state that they are from a government department and claim that they are giving a special reward. The scammer will fool them by asking for the teenager's bank account. The teenagers will not think too much about this situation and will give their information to the scammer straight away. The world is getting more modern. How could a normal person become a scammer to steal other people's money? They need to pity the teenagers because they are wasting their parents' money. 

Next, social networking websites can cause teenagers to easily befriend unknown people. For example, they will start a conversation by greeting and chatting with each other. Suddenly, the unknown person wants the teenagers to send some sexual photos. The teenagers do not understand what will happen next, so the teenagers send their photos to the unknown person. A few days later, the teenager’s photos become viral on social media. The teenagers will feel ashamed of it and make their parents disappointed.

In conclusion, I agree that social networking websites can cause a lot of problems to teenagers around the world. It can make teenagers' lives become worse. I hope that parents around the world will control their own child's behavior on social media before it is too late.

Life - Adriana Ingram

Every one of us needs to move on. As the saying goes, “life must go on.” Some of us even have suicidal thoughts, but there must be one thing that keep us from doing it. It could be our family, or someone that we love. A lot of teenagers get depressed, just like one of my friends. She was only 12 years old and she had a lot of problems. They were caused by her family and school. I felt sorry for her. Sometimes I sit on my bed on a rainy day and ask myself, “what is the point of me living in this world?”, “why am I here?”, “does my friend like me?” I would repeat these questions in my head for hours and hours. But then I remembered my parents! My family! That is the reason for me to live. Besides that, everybody has their biggest fears. Do you know what is my biggest fear? My fear is being in a plane crash and also a monster might be hiding under my bed. Well, that is just my imagination. I want all of us, the young generation, to move on, go forward and never ever look back. There are a

Playing Tennis In The USA - Hii Shieng Wee

Hi guys, I'm Hii. I come from Sibu, but now I'm studying at SMK Tabuan Jaya. Going to a foreign country has always been my dream because I wanted to see the outside world and feel the difference between other countries and my own. The story started from June 2019 when I received an invitation to enroll in SMK Tabuan Jaya from my Kuching-coach Stevie Din. Because of my work hard and respect, Coach Stevie helped me get into a program to go to Florida in the United States. When he told me this news, I felt very incredible and excited because I could realize my dream. In August, my Sibu-coach took me to Florida, because I was still a minor and too young to go abroad alone. Our flight started with my hometown in Sibu to KLIA1 to Hong Kong to Los Angeles and finally to Florida. When we arrived in Hong Kong, we had 5 more hours to go until our connecting flight, so we ate at the Hong Kong airport. After that, we went to Los Angeles. When we arrived in Los Angeles, we still had a fligh

A Part-Time Job I Want - Audrea Flennysha Jackie

For the upcoming school holiday, I have decided to take on a part time-job while waiting for my SPM result. I choose to be a baker and I want to work at Taka's bakery shop that is not far from my neighborhood. Very few people want to be bakers and have a part time-job there because they love eating, not baking. Another reason why I choose this job is I love baking. Since the job is not a struggle, I can learn more about baking during my shifts which are 9 to 10 hours each. For me, baking truly keeps me fulfilled, free, and energized. As the bakery is near my home, getting there will not take an hour or have traffic congestion problems. Being next to Farley Mall, some customers stop by the cake shop after they have finished shopping at the mall. In conclusion, I hope that many customers will come to the bakery to buy some cakes for their loved ones. Delicious food can make people happy. Through this part time-job, I can save up my income for a rainy day. ---------- Audrea Flennysha

Journey of a Lifetime - Erika Vallensia

Life is one word that comes with multiple meanings. It has lots of problems that you need to face every day. Full of ups and downs, it also has many blessings. To some people, life is hard, cruel, and merciless. Those people see life as a punishment throughout their entire lives. Do not worry about it though! All these problems that you are facing make you strong; it gives you courage to stand alone in the future. You all know that life is also full of moments of joy, pleasure, and success. Comfort is punctuated by misery, defeat, failures, and problems. For your information, no human being on earth who is strong, powerful, wise, or rich has not experienced struggle, suffering or failure. Life is full of paths. It is your own decision to choose the right one. You must work hard to get what you really want. Life is as interesting and wonderful as the stars in the sky. Without a doubt, life is beautiful and full of celebration. There are days when I suddenly feel all alone, not belonging
