    “So, where are you guys from?” The jovial, large man with the big knife sliced up the sausage I had just pointed at and smiled at my mother and I expectantly. Going on this trip with my mom had turned out differently from what I’d expected. She first introduced it to me as a mother-daughter...

    The room didn't have a whiteboard. It was small, and recently painted blue. An old television with a convex screen dangled dangerously from the top right corner. Four folding tables were placed around the room. Three desks sat in a row to the side. The room looked more like an office than a class...

    When considering Barbie’s impact on society, one easily forgets that her owners manipulate her and not the other way around. Nowadays, shocking news and pictures of different women who transformed their bodies in order to become “real-life Barbie dolls” are everywhere. Truly, Barbie is an ambi...

    My obsession began at a young age. Waking up first on Christmas morning; getting up at six o’clock every Saturday to watch the good cartoons; arriving at class before everyone else in order to choose the best seat…my meticulousness about punctuality paid off. In my manic passion for promptness, ...

    “Milo! I swear that dog’s more trouble than he’s worth.” Henry looked at David without surprise, not shocked by his usually cross older brother’s statement. Milo was grating on David’s last nerve, and having to search for the dog underneath the rapidly darkening sky only furthered his ag...

    “Mr. Boulder?” Dr. Sanchez was tense as he phoned his long-time friend. Dr. Sanchez’s hesitant tone tipped Mr. Boulder off. After many years of dealing with disgruntled parents, babysitters, and custodians, he was able to determine many things based off Dr. Sanchez’s voice: he seemed more ap...

    A “majority” is a group whose large amount of supporters buttresses its power. In their minds, humans rationalize “popular” to mean “best.” Despite the transient thoughts of change and reform that roam around their brains, individuals largely repress these feelings in favor of the majori...

    Daniel Day Lewis’s performance in “Lincoln” is brilliantly delivered. His Lincoln is everything history has said he was: shuffling walk and all. Two and a half hours of Daniel Day Lewis hunched over and drawling Shakespeare inbetween stories isn’t all that the movie has to offer, though. Th...

    They never flat-out say it. They circle around the topic, like a dog around a fire hydrant, until they slip it in. Their method is never as clever as they think it is. “What was having him as a brother like?” What they mean is, was he always this way? I hate how they think of him like some so...

    Imagine two sides of a dinner table. One plate has steak and bacon. The other has a garden salad and bread. Many say that you can only choose one of the plates. A small percentage says that you should find a happy medium. Others say that you should choose the plate you want, but you can only have on...

    A knock sounds on my door and I reluctantly close my book. As I look through the peep hole I see my friend Matt and his comically magnified head. I open the door before attempting to shut it. Unfortunately, the rather large boot Matt had stuck in my door frame allowed him enough leverage to pry the ...

    When people picture the zoo, they never think of groups of teenagers blending in with the usual crowd. But there we were, armed with sunscreen and enough money to buy all of the overpriced, unhealthy food our little hearts desired. We foresaw many Dippin’ Dots in our future. Only five minutes afte...

    “Quiz Show” is a dramatized re-telling of the Twenty One quiz show scandal during the 1950s. The movie opens with an introduction to a pivotal character, Dick Goodwin. We learn that he has recently moved to Washington D.C and is a government worker. From that scene to the next, the audience is i...

    The Good, The Bad, and The Barbie can be read by anyone who knows what a Barbie doll is – and who doesn't? Originally a young adult writer, Tanya Lee Stone manages to keep the same light-hearted tone here. She remains neutral, allowing readers to form their own opinions on Barbie. When I fi...

    Melanie trudged up the hill and silently cursed herself for getting lost. This wouldn’t be happening if we had just gone to Hawaii again, she thought. But, this year, her sister had decided that she’d like nothing better than to go out into the woods and rough it with her family. When Emma sugge...
