Yesterday theSprout ventured down to Cantonian and we got inundated with articles. Most of the longer articles made it up on the site yesterday and few will appear over the next couple of days but below is a random round up of what students at Cantonian are talking about...

My Start At Music College!

I go to music college every Saturday at the University of Glamorgan (ATRIUM). I've been put into a group of five; one drummer, two guitarists, and two singers - I'm one of the singers. At the end of the course we will be performing at a live venue in front of over two hundred people and we will be performing at least one original song. I don't know the band properly yet but by the end of it I will have made friends that I don't want to lose. On the day of the performance there might be a talent scout there, so fingers crossed. This is all I've ever wanted to do and im really, really, really excited. Wish me luck!

Best Friend

Being best friend is hard went your friend is in your face all the time. They are there all time, when you're having your food and when you're on the toilet.

This is why they have weekends so you can get away from your friend for two days of freedom, despite all the miscalls and the 15 or so messages.

Monday you see your friend, they give you a dirty look and ask why you didn't answer your phone. You smile and say your battery died and you could not find the charger then you hug and start chatting.

Arms Park Reunion

This Friday sees the Cardiff Blues return to their beloved Arms Park. They return home as a one-off for the first time in over three years. This is the WRU's attempt to boost Welsh regional rugby. This comes only a week after the Ospreys played at Bridgend RFC's ground. Tickets for Under 16's are £5 and £10 for adults ! It's going to be a good one so make sure you get yourself down to the Arms Park on Friday and support the Blues against Connahct.

Who Will Win The Six Nations

Who will win the Six Nations? Only one team will stand out. All I know is that England, Italy and Scotland will not win - that's all I'm saying.

Rock Or Pop?

What do you prefer these days rock or pop? From the charts you can see pop is more popular but it is a completely personal thing.

What is your favourite song and who's it by and is it rock or pop?

It's rock for me what's it for you?

Who Will Win The Premier League?

There are many contenders for the Premier League this season. Man City have gone money mad and bought many good players like Sergio Aguero and David Silva. 

Tottenham have had a brilliant season so far with players like Gareth Bale and Luka Modric in top form.

Chelsea and Liverpool have had mixed seasons with wins against the bigger teams and draws and losses at the weaker teams.

Or will Man Utd reclaim their title and add to the records?

But you never know maybe even Newcastle can win it?

Never Shout Never

Did any-one go and see Never Shout Never in January?

The closest to Cardiff they came was Birmingham, I think. I couldn't go. They are amazing, do you agree or disagree? Christofer Drew Ingle is just perfection, muahaha! Well this is pretty short.

Should There Be A Sprout App?

I think that theSprout should bring out an app for Andriod and ios, because it would be handy for people like me and my friends to keep up to date while on the go. Wherever you were, you could post the latest story while on the go.

I think this would be a great decision for them to take a look at!

Cheesy Feet?

Do you ever cringe at the site of cheesy, dusty, gross looking feet?

I do!

Every time I have PE I try to avoid the feet of my class mates. I personally hate looking at feet because some people have feet that are just so cheesy or have crusty skin; it makes me sick just by looking at it! 

What are your views on feet?

Being A Young Carer Can Be Quite A Challenge!

Im a young carer for my twin brother. He suffers with severe autism and I care for him whenever and however I can. Now, my parents also care for him and because of this people think that I am in fact not a young carer but I am, I care for him in anyway possible whether it is to get him a drink or to iron his school uniform. Yes it can be quite a challenge but it's all worth it.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is a 17-year-old teen pop singer. He is amazing. Some people may hate him, that's up to you, but don't judge someone by just hearing them speak or watching their videos. Justin Bieber has been through a lot and he is like the rest of us  - a normal teen living his life as a pop star and we should all respect him.

GTA IV Vs Saints Row 3

I wrote an article about Saints Row 3 but there were a few comments on GTA IV being better so let see which is better! In my opinion Saints Row 3 it better but GTA IV is good as well.

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 is one of the greatest online multiplayer war games I have ever played with its vehicles and how realistic it is. It should have the Call Of Duty company scared. Some people who read this may or may not agree with me when I say that Battlefield 3 is a simulator and MW3 is for fun. The only problem with Battlefield is that the campaign was a bit disappointing in length but had a great story line.

Also when online I love all of the new players and watching them trying to fly a helicopter, it makes Battlefield all that bit better.

What Are Your Options?

In schools everywhere kids are asked what they would like to take for their options and are asked what they want to be when they are older.

It might be just me but I don't know what I want to be when I get older, I don't even know what I'm having for tea tomorrow never mind what I want to work as! I don't have a favourite subject and I am okay at all my subjects because I work at them so I could choose anything but what if I choose something with kids and go on work experience and find out I hate them? What if I go and do food and nutrition and find out I can't cook?

I want to know what your picking and why?

iPhone Vs Blackberry

OK, so loads of people wanted the iPhone when it first came out. Then when the blackberry came out, everyone wanted to have one of them instead, but now it's about even.

I would love to know your opinion and see which seems to be more popular for this specific age group. 

I have asked around and it seems a lot of people (based on my peers) prefer the Blackberry. 

Personally, I don't really see the difference apart from the fact that the Blackberry has BBM, which is proven to be very popular, and the iPhone doesn't.

Dear chillichipmunk,

I'd like to address your Sproutlet. Trolling is never a clever thing to do. I know this, as I myself recently started a youtube vlog. Since starting it, I've had random people I don't know dislike my video and post nasty comments about my videos for no reason other than to try and upset me. And they did upset me. It's a terrible thing to do and I hope that you realise that it can really affect someone's self-esteem. I thoroughly recommend you watch this episode of Panorama which addresses the issue of cyber bullying and I hope that you will realise that just because your actions take place on the internet, it doesn't mean they don't have consequences.

Yours sincerely


P.S. Whilst I'm normally weary of fear mogering media such as Panorama, it's the overall message that they're trying to get across that I hope you will take on board.
