Latara Boodie, Youthlink Writer As we cross our last 'T's and dot our final 'I's, soon and very soon we will be able to close another eventful school year with a sigh of great relief, and shout "Hello Summer!" This is the most awesome season on our beautiful island. With the temperature soaring a couple degrees higher and the illusion of freedom, July and August are usually filled with adventure, new experiences, new people, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Poe Han Thar Kyaw, Youthlink Writer In economics there exists a principle called the law of diminishing marginal utility. It basically states that the more one consumes something, the less he/she enjoys that thing. For example, a couple weeks ago I tried a sour candy which was so good that I kept on eating it. After a while, it was no longer satisfying but I continued to eat it till my tongue got so numb that I could taste nothing. This doesn't just happen with candy, it happens with drinks, food and a myriad of things, especially relationships.

Latara Boodie, Youthlink Writer Yes, best friends generally have many things in common and share a special bond, making them nearly inseparable. True friends, however, not only enjoy their similarities but also celebrate their differences. Brittany and Travis Ffrench are not just siblings but also best friends.  Food: Fast or Cooked Food?
Dear Counsellor: I am a college student who recently began a relationship with someone who is known as having many partners. We have not had sex yet, but we both really want to. I'm very apprehensive due to his past sexual history, and although he claims to be STI-free, I am not willing to take the risk.
