<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->This box I hide myself in<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And I can’t find the door to get out<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->The room is filled with invisible doubts<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Fears and emotions that I only know one way<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->To get them to stop screaming at me<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I am not proud of it<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I don’t eat and nothing is easy anymore<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Living every day is a pain<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->But I do it and to me<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I am stronger than any girl of steel could ever be<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->My life has changed<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->My field of daisies and flowers<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Has died and I just can’t do it<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->When everything is wrong<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->When the walls of society don’t exist anymore <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And I just float in that black void <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Between belonging and popularity<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->The one candle that lit that dark void<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Is gone, snuffed out like it was nothing<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And in this dark void is a tempting offer<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Like the devil is asking me to sell my soul<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->But then the demon raging in my head fades<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And that one part of me that is still human<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Wonders why would I put the people I love through this<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->But then the demon takes hold once again <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And to be honest<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I can hardly stop my hands from shaking <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->And just like that my beautiful God given gift<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Is torn away from me<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->But that doesn’t even come close to <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->The pain I feel 24/7<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

It is completely anonymous and your questions will not be shared with anyone outside of Newspaper Club. You can find submission boxes in the library, Mrs. Waugh’s room, and Mrs. Walker’s room. _</p><p><em>How can I be cool ?</em></p><p>Depends on what you view as “cool”. You might view cool as not caring about anything and going with the flow, You might view cool as being dark and mysterious, or you might view cool as being nice, open, and friendly. If you’re happy with who you are now then there’s no need to change that. There are no specific factors to being cool other than being confident with who you are.</p><p> </p><p><em>I’m feeling sad and I don’t know what to do about it can you guys help me?</em></p><p>Sadness is a normal part of life and is an emotion we have all dealt with. If this feeling of sadness is persistent and overwhelming, then it would be a good idea to seek professional help. Seeking help may sound scary but you’ll be glad you did it in the long run. If there are things that make you feel better, do them. Talk to friends, engage in your hobbies, but most importantly seek help if your sadness starts holding you back.</p><p> </p><p><em>I am feeling depressed and I don’t know what to do.</em></p><p>Depression is a serious thing that can be treated. Know that help is always available. Here at school we have a Licensed Professional Counselor in room 305 who can help you figure out what’s going on. It’s important to reach out for help even if you’re feeling helpless. You can also try to find something to occupy your mind with like writing, playing with a pet, etc. Know that you are not alone, and there are people who can and want to help you. If you would like to talk to a peer, you could contact someone in newspaper club. You can contact us through Instagram @btw_news or email: <a href=mailto:bookertnews@gmail.com>bookertnews@gmail.com</a></p><p>1 800 273 8255 – this is the national suicide hotline available 24/7.</p><p>918 744 4800- this number is a crisis line you can dial if you are in need of immediate help</p><p>918 394 2256-  this number directs you to the Calm Center here in Tulsa that provides you with immediate help in time of crisis.</p><p> </p><p><em>How do you find the right people to be friends with, so how do you find your new friend group as a freshman?</em></p><p>Freshman year can be a rough and confusing time for anyone. Finding new friends isn’t always an easy thing. Making friends takes time and effort, especially making good friends. You don’t necessarily have to build a whole group of friends immediately, you can start by just making one or two friends. If you enjoy someone’s company, then you should pursue that friendship. Don’t be afraid of someone thinking you’re annoying for trying to pursue a friendship (they most likely don’t). If you had a friend group in middle school, reflect on how you made those friends and put those skills to work. There are other people out there in your same position, everyone’s just trying to find their place. You aren’t alone no matter how much it may seem that way.</p><p> </p><p><em>I need help with procrastination. Can you guys help me?</em></p><p> </p><p>I think we’re all guilty of procrastination more than we care to admit. No one really wants to spend time doing work now when you could do it later, but eventually later will be now. You have to remember that if you complete your work on time you won’t have to go through the stress of it all piling up on you last minute. Doing work last minute also means it may not really reflect your best abilities and you could get a lower grade on it. To avoid procrastination you should get rid of distractions like electronics, and think about all the stress you won’t be going through later.</p><p> </p><p><em>How do you kiss a girl well- Al Kaholic</em></p><p> </p><p>Bring her Hershey’s kisses instead.</p></div><div class=after-post-tags><ul class=tags><li><a href=/tags/other>other</a></li><li><a href=/tags/btw-news>btw-news</a></li><li><a href=/tags/column>column</a></li></ul></div><div class=article-post><p>See more of this author's content <a href="https://thetaliaferrotimes.org/search/?q=The%20Taliaferro%20Times">here</a>.</p><p>Unless otherwise noted, all content herein is licensed under the <a href=https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/>Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License</a>.

                        <p><strong>Helping Hornets</strong></p>
<p>_*Helping Hornets is a student-based advice column that provides help to students who may need it. It is completely anonymous and your questions will not be shared with anyone outside of Newspaper Club. You can find submission boxes in the library, Mrs. Waugh’s room, and Mrs. Walker’s room. _</p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->How can I be cool ?<!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Depends on what you view as “cool”. You might view cool as not caring about anything and going with the flow, You might view cool as being dark and mysterious, or you might view cool as being nice, open, and friendly. If you’re happy with who you are now then there’s no need to change that. There are no specific factors to being cool other than being confident with who you are. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p> </p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I’m feeling sad and I don’t know what to do about it can you guys help me?<!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Sadness is a normal part of life and is an emotion we have all dealt with. If this feeling of sadness is persistent and overwhelming, then it would be a good idea to seek professional help. Seeking help may sound scary but you’ll be glad you did it in the long run. If there are things that make you feel better, do them. Talk to friends, engage in your hobbies, but most importantly seek help if your sadness starts holding you back. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p> </p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I am feeling depressed and I don’t know what to do.<!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Depression is a serious thing that can be treated. Know that help is always available. Here at school we have a Licensed Professional Counselor in room 305 who can help you figure out what’s going on. It’s important to reach out for help even if you’re feeling helpless. You can also try to find something to occupy your mind with like writing, playing with a pet, etc. Know that you are not alone, and there are people who can and want to help you. If you would like to talk to a peer, you could contact someone in newspaper club. You can contact us through Instagram @btw_news or email: <!-- raw HTML omitted --><a href="mailto:bookertnews@gmail.com"><!-- raw HTML omitted -->bookertnews@gmail.com<!-- raw HTML omitted --></a></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->1 800 273 8255 – this is the national suicide hotline available 24/7. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->918 744 4800- this number is a crisis line you can dial if you are in need of immediate help<!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->918 394 2256-  this number directs you to the Calm Center here in Tulsa that provides you with immediate help in time of crisis. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p> </p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->How do you find the right people to be friends with, so how do you find your new friend group as a freshman?<!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Freshman year can be a rough and confusing time for anyone. Finding new friends isn’t always an easy thing. Making friends takes time and effort, especially making good friends. You don’t necessarily have to build a whole group of friends immediately, you can start by just making one or two friends. If you enjoy someone’s company, then you should pursue that friendship. Don’t be afraid of someone thinking you’re annoying for trying to pursue a friendship (they most likely don’t). If you had a friend group in middle school, reflect on how you made those friends and put those skills to work. There are other people out there in your same position, everyone’s just trying to find their place. You aren’t alone no matter how much it may seem that way. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p> </p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I need help with procrastination. Can you guys help me?<!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->I think we’re all guilty of procrastination more than we care to admit. No one really wants to spend time doing work now when you could do it later, but eventually later will be now. You have to remember that if you complete your work on time you won’t have to go through the stress of it all piling up on you last minute. Doing work last minute also means it may not really reflect your best abilities and you could get a lower grade on it. To avoid procrastination you should get rid of distractions like electronics, and think about all the stress you won’t be going through later. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p> </p>
<p><em><!-- raw HTML omitted -->How do you kiss a girl well- Al Kaholic <!-- raw HTML omitted --></em></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted --> <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>
<p><!-- raw HTML omitted -->Bring her Hershey’s kisses instead. <!-- raw HTML omitted --></p>

I come in the hushed whispers, telling you you’re never going to be good enough. I come because I know you’ll never need me the way I so desperately need you. How I feed off your fear. Your insecurities. Your mood. How I need you in the ways I quicken your breath and the shaking of your voice. The panic in your heart and the utter feeling of no control. I need you in selfish ways because nothing I ever say is true, but because you’ve known me for so long you blindly let me take the wheel. I come to scare away your friends because in the end you’ll always have me. I come to tell you how you’ll never be enough, I take your hope and I shatter your dreams because it’s only fair that you share your reflection with me. You’ll see me in the way your lips trimble as you look in the mirror, noticing every imperfection. You’ll hug me close when you crumble on the bathroom floor in a puddle of regret and miscommunication. You’ll shake my hand when the semester starts and I introduce my friends. Procrastination waiting outside your door, depression falling on your floor, anger and pride will shake the walls. I’ll shove you in a corner then run and hide, we’ll play a game, us against you. And when you finally break, when your mind is numb and you’ve got nothing left for us to take, we leave you alone. Alone in your mind, killing yourself a thousand times; because you’ll never truly be rid of me. I’ll always creep back in when you least expect it. You can lock your doors and cover your windows but you can never shut off my voice playing on repeat. Laughing and calling you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. My friends will join in and you’ll drown all over again, because in the end, don’t I always win?</p></div><div class=after-post-tags><ul class=tags><li><a href=/tags/creative-writing>creative-writing</a></li></ul></div><div class=article-post><p>See more of this author's content <a href="https://thetaliaferrotimes.org/search/?q=Baylee%20McDonald">here</a>.</p><p>Unless otherwise noted, all content herein is licensed under the <a href=https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/>Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License</a>.

                        <p>Through the eyes of anxiety…</p>
<p>I come in the dark, when you least expect me and never asked for me. I come in the hushed whispers, telling you you’re never going to be good enough. I come because I know you’ll never need me the way I so desperately need you. How I feed off your fear. Your insecurities. Your mood. How I need you in the ways I quicken your breath and the shaking of your voice. The panic in your heart and the utter feeling of no control. I need you in selfish ways because nothing I ever say is true, but because you’ve known me for so long you blindly let me take the wheel. I come to scare away your friends because in the end you’ll always have me. I come to tell you how you’ll never be enough, I take your hope and I shatter your dreams because it’s only fair that you share your reflection with me. You’ll see me in the way your lips trimble as you look in the mirror, noticing every imperfection. You’ll hug me close when you crumble on the bathroom floor in a puddle of regret and miscommunication. You’ll shake my hand when the semester starts and I introduce my friends. Procrastination waiting outside your door, depression falling on your floor, anger and pride will shake the walls. I’ll shove you in a corner then run and hide, we’ll play a game, us against you. And when you finally break, when your mind is numb and you’ve got nothing left for us to take, we leave you alone. Alone in your mind, killing yourself a thousand times; because you’ll never truly be rid of me. I’ll always creep back in when you least expect it. You can lock your doors and cover your windows but you can never shut off my voice playing on repeat. Laughing and calling you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. My friends will join in and you’ll drown all over again, because in the end, don’t I always win?</p>
