  • Hello everyone! I'm sorry that I was, unfortunately, a day late with the winners. My deepest apologies for that. As always, I wish I could make everyone the winner but then it wouldn't be a contest, now would it? All the entries were fantastic, and thank y'all so much for taking the time to take and create these!

    1ST PLACE: Valentina
    First off, yellow is one of the happiest colors (in my humble opinion). The bee is adorable, and it is a nice contrast against the flowers. I also really like the faded grass around the edges, whether that was intentional or not, it really draws attention towards a nice focal point. A great moment captured, in short. Great job!

    2ND PLACE: Julia
    I love these! You were correct in your caption, they are very colorful! The simplicity of the photo with the blue sky peeking through the pink blossoms is as spring-y of an image you can get. I also really liked the contrast of lighting, with the one darker and one lighter, to see the different shades hidden in the flowers. Gorgeous!

    3RD PLACE: Anwen
    Not to mention that you had the first entry in, this is the cutest cat possibly ever! It reminds me a lot of my old cat Kiki. It's so cute how they're all wrappd up in the fuzzy blanket. And that is truly a "dissaproving cat" expression, so funny! The patterns on his/her fur are so pretty. Again, that's just an adorable cat. Thank you!

    HONORABLE MENTION (TIE!): Foxsquirrel & Freida
    Foxsquirrel- In my opinion, this was the best picture in regards to the photo quality itself, so awesome job on that! Also, that's a very cool plant, although I too have no clue what it is! I love the bright green color and the little purple parts as well. Great photo!
    Freida- Your photo stood out to me right away, being the only all black and white photo in the entries! I am a sucker for that, considering I put the B & W filter on literally all my pictures. I like that your feet are almost crossing the texture change in the pavement, and the detail of the anklet. Love!

    Again, thank all y'all for entering! :)
    • Thank you so much!!! I would have replied to this earlier but I haven't been on hardly at all lately :P :))
      • you're very welcome!

Dealing with Scary Thoughts

Okay i am feeling a bit scared about Dying I never really thought about till my eleventh birthday And i really need some advice – Anonymous      This is a really big, serious topic, but I want to try to tackle it because I know I would have appreciated it when I was younger.

Before I give any advice, I just want to say that I’m really…

How to Talk to Your Crush

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep. Eventually, I did start to worry that my friends would look down on me…
