Importance of a good night's sleep

Nowadays, many teenagers stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning. When they don't have enough sleep, they tend to nod off during the day.

So they find it hard to concentrate on their studies. Adequate sleep is very important for teenagers, because their bodies grow during the night.

It's who you are, not what you have

Peer pressure is something most teenagers suffer from. Teenagers aged 13 to 17 are the most affected. They constantly worry about being in the 'popular' group. Gadgets like the i-Pod, the latest mobile phones, trendy clothes and exquisite jewellery rule their lives, as they are the essentials to enter the glam group.

Treasure family, no matter what

Sometimes I wish there were no adults in the world.

My parents are very strict.

They don't let me play computer games and they keep an eye on my blog to make sure I don't post any foul language.

Although I hate it when they do that sort of thing, I still love my family.

Stop using foul language

Is foul language a kind of insult? Or is it used by teenagers to express their frustration?

Whatever the reason, we should never use bad words.

Some teenagers use foul language because it is 'cool', while others do so because they hear obscenities almost every day - on the road, trains and buses.

Saving old sites a waste of resources

Preserving historical sites has been a hot topic.

From the Star Ferry pier in Central to the old wet market in Sai Wan, people have been asking the government to preserve the sites as part of their collective memory.

But I don't believe it is worth keeping so many old buildings just to remind us of our past.
