    The blizzard out my window Mirrors what is inside A snowfall of ideas With no place to reside What should I say? What should I do? To show I have no clue, How to live without you These rhymes are too easy The ideas too cliché To invoke the sorrow Put it on display Just writing a...

    I am lugged around, tossed to the ground, filled to the brim and cherished. I am a drawstring bag. There is more contained in the bag than a person might assume. Not everyone can see what is in the bag but I will provide a preview. My bag can hold my cleats, shorts and a protein bar for after the...

    During my study hall I walked into the third-floor bathroom. It was clean and hygienic, a feature that most of us take for granted. Sixty percent of the world's population does not have access to toilets. That's 4.2 billion people! Students in the U.S. are lucky to have access to sanitary, safe bath...

    Has any one noticed the obtuse impact of a sexy title? I have. I must say, it's rather frustrating. "Him. Her. The Crush" will get 100's of comments and views because it's what naturally attracts teen. The single greatest deciding factor of the success of an article on t...

    The scientists could explain how it happened, but I still couldn’t understand how it was possible. It was like something out of a Stephen King novel. I sat there inhaling the cold wet ocean air. It was my summer vacation. I should have been basking in the warmth of the sun, but instead I sat hu...

    The clouds are milky white and soaring high above the ground. My slick new running shoes cut through the grass as my shorts billow beneath me and a cool draft breezes past my legs. School, grades, arguments--I’m leaving it all behind me. Then comes the pain. A cramp in my shoulder, a blister on...
