Some of us have had to work late. Tempers were raised, as well as blood pressure, and stress was the name of the game, and boy, amI glad it’s over.
The last few weeks have been pretty interesting at the Place-next-door, with our debates and discussions about music. I want to thank everyone who participated in the discussion. If anyone's got anything they want to put up on our forum, I'm all ears. Speaking of forums, don't forget to take a look at the Voices of Youth website (details in page 3). I’m still getting some letters as an aftermath of the discussion, and I’ll put some up next week, okay?
Well, we're getting
ready for Mother's Day pretty soon. Hope you guys are doing something
special for your moms. I think I'm going to surprise the Mother-next-door
by cleaning my room before she asks me too…
Anyway, I haven't got much to say this week. I'll leave you with a small crop of Mother's Day Quotes. Till next week, take care!

"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."
"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." - Washington Irving

Boys, boys and boys- there are so many boys around us. Do all of them have the same nature or characteristics? Nope, not at all. If you observe them, you will find various funny, interesting and impressive characteristics. It can be among your friends or relatives. I've done this observation among my classmates. Believe me its really funny. It's very difficult to find out the appropriate or suitable character cause everyone has his own qualities, views and also faults. There are endless people, endless characters. It's very difficult to categorize them but at least we can give a try. Lets see.
The Premi: These types of guys are a bit unusual but have a very impressive character. They can easily steal others' attention. They can impress the girls very quickly. I just don't know why the girls also fall in love with them (one by one). It doesn't matter whether they are handsome or not, brilliant or not. I'm sure they have some special God gifted qualities. Maybe their modern thoughts about life attract the girls.
The Mojnu: These guys are very friendly but suddenly they fall deeply in love with one of their classmates and gradually, they begin to detached from the group and at last become isolated. They create their own world and remain busy with their loved ones. These types of couples are enough to inspire some to fall in love and others to sigh in frustration.
The Supporter: These guys are quite unique and small in number. They sacrifice their lives for the safety of their female friends. These are the people who escort their female friends safely back home at night, after functions and ceremonies such as weddings and late-night classes. These guys are the reason why girls can still venture out in a lawless society like ours.
The geek: They spend most of their time in studying, talking about study, dreaming about study. If you ask them any normal question like "Hi, how are you?" or "You are looking good today" they will blush furiously. Usually these guys try to avoid girls. They have their own world and if you want to enter in that world you also have to be a geek.
The Big Bro': Whenever you will see such guys you will definitely miss your elder brother. Usually they like to remain alone and don't share their emotions. When the group is in trouble they take the part of an elder brother and protect the group. They try to act as guardians.
The Typical: I think these guys are large in number. They are neither geek nor "lafanga". They are the normal boys. They try to participate in all kinds of normal activities. They are medium level smart. Before doing anything they usually think more than hundred times.
The Pagol: It is very difficult to find out how they will react in certain situation. They are quite abnormal guys and do abnormal things like suddenly bursting into song, or talking to themselves. They don't have much interest in anything. It seems like they are leading life because they have nothing else to do.
The Sexy: These guys are drop-dead gorgeous. They attract the girls like filings to a magnet, but never let the dames get close to their hearts. Whenever you will see such guys you'll wish one of them was yours.
The Bad boy: They do some unsocial activities like smoking and eve teasing in open places. They usually show off a very macho attitude. It's very surprising and disappointing that very innocent type girls usually fall in love with them.
The Hero: These guys are always trying to prove their superiority over others, whether in brains, brawn, or good looks…unfortunately, their perception of themselves don't usually agree with how everyone else sees them.
