Letter To My Grandchild:
You aren’t born yet, I don’t even believe you are a thought yet, but I’m writing this letter for you to open on this special day; your 18th birthday. The world is a scary place. There are perks and disadvantages to being 18, you’ll find that out soon enough. Responsibility is huge right now, many decisions you make now are classified under adult decisions. Be careful, but also enjoy this time as it’s one of the most exciting and changing points of your life, at least for me it is.
I am currently 18 years old writing this for you. I go to school at Notre Dame de la Baie Academy in Green Bay. The date I am writing this is 5/6/15. Everything seems really advanced in technology, but I’m sure your generation will change even more things for the better. Gas prices are currently $2.40, but they were almost $4.50 as of last year. It will be interesting to see what the prices will be on your 18th birthday considering the world is running out of oil. The biggest piece of advice I can give you is to enjoy the moments you have now. Do not ever let anyone stand in the way of your fun. Participate in sports, read a book, learn something, ride a bike, do whatever you want in these years because the opportunities are out there. I made mistakes in my teenage years, and I’m sure you will too. It is just part of the learning curve so accept it and live your life.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Barter System.”
If the world was on a Barter System, the man would definitely survive. You see, bartering is not about the amount of talk, or money, or even the items you purchase, it is more of an intimidation factor. The less timid you look, the more respect you’ll gain from the sellers. If the world only used the barter system, only the toughest would survive. Sure people who know how to sell or to talk would get by, but the real successful people would be the beefy macho men who could get the items they are looking for at whatever price they desire for they no not the word “no.”
The Name is Ty, Some call me Yt its Ty spelt backwards kind of like Stanley Yelnats from the movie and book Holes. I am born and raised a Cheese head. Green Bay is the way. I am into many things from sports, food, the latest fashion and even touring the Midwest. I love walks along the shores of the lovely Fox River, I mean how can you not take advantage of something to nice when it is practically in your back yard. I play baseball for the Tritons, and I was once a dodge ball and Intramural champion. My best friend is Nick Martzahl and Charles Rotherham. We play baseball and everyday take one big hug with each other. I am currently dating Haley Cullen who has been nothing but a princess to me the past year. She is something else. Our relationship is kind of like Brennan Huff…

Many men go around today saying the word, “bro.” But what does this word really entitle? There are many messages and background themes associated with the title of “bro.” Although, many can be deceiving and can often lead to confusion so let’s get started into the ever complex world of “bros”
1. Meaning of the Word
“Bro,” short for “brother,” is an identifier used among guys everywhere. It usually is used when the man feels comfortable enough to refer to you as one of his best friends, almost brother-like. It started as a small trend, but now has branched off into being an identifier word for guys who are there for you, like a brother.
You may now be wondering when to introduce the word into the relationship, well, this is tricky. “Bro” can be used as an informal term to say a greeting, such as “hey bro, what’s up?” The difference between that expression versus “you’re awesome man, you’re my bro,” is rather drastic. The first expression is casual, and can be used at anytime with no limitations, the second; however, should only be used when you have already established yourself as loyal best friends.
Loyalty is the most essential key to being a bro. It’s not the way you act, talk, your values, opinions, none of that. Loyalty. This concept separates the friends from the “bros.” Without loyalty, the world of “bros” may very well fall apart. Loyalty, as defined in a dictionary, means a strong feeling of support or allegiance. By practicing loyalty, you are pledging your allegiance to the United States of Bromerica. The concept doesn’t mean you can’t hang out with other people, but it can outline each other as priorities over invading forces.
4. Special Cases
If you are with a girl you really like and she calls you a “bro,” that means you are in the friend zone and it’s time to reevaluate the relationship. Consider all possible outcomes and benefits to staying or leaving before making any haste decisions. You do not want to ever be called a “bro” by a girl, unless it’s your sister. It is almost certain friend zone and a dangerous territory to be in.
