Whyville. Whyville isn't a common word among every-day life. Normally
people would ponder at such an odd, abstract name. Not me. Why? Because I
am an individual. I am imperfect. I am different. I am hungry for
learning. I rise to the occasion. I am Whyvillian.
Whyville teaches you more then just how to talk to people on the web
safely. More than just learning how to act older than you really are.
At least, that was never my notion. What I received from this site was
something better than a thousand diamonds. Something much better than a
million dollars. I learned how to be a kid.
Learning to be a kid, I believe, is the best part of life. Most people,
take it for granted. "Lemme just get this over with. Homework. Teachers.
Fights with friends. I don't want it." Don't you see? Being a kid is the
best thing life has to offer you. And Whyville gave the little magic of
learning how to be a kid. Yes I am a teenager, but Whyville still taught
me to be a child at heart.
I noticed and enjoyed things. I received lessons in Whyville. I learned
that lying and cheating is not the best answer. I learned that by giving
personal things away, you can lose everything. I learned to notice things
around me. I actually stopped and smelled the roses on my way home from
But how can a site teach you these things? The citizens of course! They
made me laugh. They made me cry. They made me mad and happy at the same
time. To me, that is everything about being a kid.
Whyville gave me more than I can ever thank them for.
