Most People will go through life with just caring about their job. They never stop and notice the things around them.
Those kind of people are lame and only care about "perfect grades" "perfect life, perfect job, Perfect everything"
Everything they do has to be perfect or they go back and fix it. 
People who like creatively live a much better life.
Most days I see the world as a movie, other times I see the world as a song.
I see a need for almost everything. I despise the word perfect and being perfect. 
I don't get the perfect grades or speak the perfect words. HECK Almost every word I speak comes out wrong.
That's because I don't think before I speak cause I don't care whether People understand me.
I can't live without music. I like the kind of music that most people would think is "emo" "devilish"
But if you look at what's "hot" today guess what 99% of it is about....Sex or Breaking up with someone.
But if you would to look at metal or emo or "devilish" music Guess what you would find...Songs about being yourself, speaking out, Standing out, And to help you not care what others think of you.
So there isn't really a difference between the "emos" and the "Normal" people.
Emo people feel more. Normal people like everything perfect and everything to go their way.
If someone told me to do something a certain way I would go the hard way just to be able to do it my way.
People say you have to be normal and live the way they want you to even your parents.
My parents want me to go to college when all I want to do is be a singer/song-writer.
I'm not going to college I dare to go my own way, I DARE to do what no one in my family ever did.
I'm standing for myself and being who I am.
Even if you're christian (I am) there are metal christian bands that are still about finding yourself and talking about how much they love god.
(War of ages, For today, are some I like)
IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT ANY OF THESE THINGS PLEASE COMMENT AND SAY WHICH ONES.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF IM THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS LIKE THIS.. <3
Comment if you're like this...or just to comment.
Comment if you want to be like this.
Comment if you don't think this is true 
Comment and tell me what you think <3
Name: BVB&SWS Girl Age: 12

You can knock me down.
Shun me. Drown me. 
Try to keep me hidden.
You think I'm perfect.
That I have nothing to hide.
 
But you don't see the truth.
You see what I've done,
Not what I've been through.
You see cuts,
But not scars.
If you think I'm perfect,
Then I know you're wrong.
Because I am a shattered mirror,
Put me back together, and you'll still see the cracks.
 
Mirrors show you the truth.
Look at me and try to understand. 
I am in darkness.
 
Darkness scientifically means no light.
But that's not what I'm talking about.
I'm talking about the awful words
The hurtful words, the mean words.
The words that slowly bent me and broke me.
Distorted my image till I was nothing but cracks.
 
Now that you've seen my cracks, know that I'm done.
I'm done caring about the little cracks in my glass,
That just seem to grow bigger.
Because you can't care when you're dead.
 
Next time you see a mirror, think of me. Think of my cracks.
 

Steve was a normal guy. But when Lora the new kid at school moves in next door, Steve starts feeling things he never ever felt. Concern, Love, Joy, and sadness. All for just Lora. Steve wants to learn more about Lora. But what he finds is not what he wants or expected. SHE IS A WITCH!!!!!! Despite what Steve learned he is still falling for Lora. Lora loves him and they live happily ever after (not really).

 

PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS STORY!!!!!!!

Name: Cora Age: 13

i always knew i was different. always distant from all the other kids. made different decisions than everybody else. but it doesn't mean im not human. i am always bullied because i like to keep to myself at school. now im going to put a stop to the teasing and the calling names. never again will someone talk bad about me.

What's a Teen Advisory Board?

A Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens who meet regularly to give librarians guidance about better serving teens and Library program ideas for our community. Each meeting is different depending on the goals of the TAB. There are usually snacks and it is always fun!

TAB members attend meetings and programs, and are responsible library users. They help promote participation in Library programs, and respect the tastes, privacy, and opinions of others. They are committed to making their community more enjoyable for everyone. And it looks great on your college application and resume!

Interested? Check out the Teen Advisory Boards at DPL and get involved!

Saved My life, How can I thank you?

Chapter 1: What Happened?

Everybody looks alright on the outside but if you were to look inside, They Wouldn't be.

Everybody thinks that if they put a fake smile on, No one will notice. But I do, I see right through them.

My name is Dani and this is my veiw on life.

 

A couple of years ago in december I was trying to find myself in this great big world.

I was so lost that I would do anything just to feel loved but That all changed last week.

You see I was just walking along the road when I saw a bright light.

July 3, 2014 - 1:26pm -- Coraw

( I am the writer of this book, but my sister is the editor)

Chapter 1

Traveling

Two months earlier

"Hurry up Benjamin". "I'm not a robot Clair". "You should be".

Why do brothers have to be so annoying. My only birthday vacation this summer,and Ben has to take his sweet time. Someone to complain to. Hmmm maybe my best friend Lily. I pull out my phone and text her.

What's your identity. An important message.

January 1, 2014 - 7:46pm -- ard916

This sounds like something from a movie.  Sounds like a mystery plot.  It's neither of these things, but rather a VERY important message that I feel I have a burden to share with all of you.

How do you define your worth.  Do you call yourself a runner, a speaker, a cheerleader, a swimmer, an author, artist, magician, or a nothing.

Vine-off in ideaLAB!!

October 26, 2013 - 4:55pm -- Laura

Saturdays in ideaLAB are always fun, but teens really mixed it up today with a Vine-off.  The rules were simple:  Make the best 6 second video and win small!

The winners were:

1.  Sophie, The life in the library

2.  Ethan, Software make hardware happen

3. Mo, Addiction

Honorable mentions, affirming nods, and solid pats on the back go to Rhylie and Thane (though Thane is staff, so...)
