    I can't live without other people. As an aspiring engineer, I am afraid to say that in some ways, I do fit the nerd stereotype, the one that depicts me as a bespectacled, math-team-shirt-wearing science junkie who can't help but to explain calculus to anyone who brings it up. Yes, I'm...

    As a child, I always wanted to know how and why things were, but adults, fed up with constant interrogations, often brushed me off by suggesting that I ask someone else or look up the answer myself. This was before I had access to the Internet, so I turned to books to tell me the meaning of new word...

    Quitting has a stigma attached to it. It shows that a person is not dedicated, is flaky and unreliable, and most likely has commitment issues. But is that really fair? I don’t think so, because I am one of the best quitters there is, and I don’t believe any of these qualities define me. I ha...

    As a kid, I was always frustrated when adults either didn't know or couldn't explain the answers to my questions, and now that I'm old enough to have some knowledge of my own, I've developed a passion for sharing that knowledge with anyone silly enough to ask. I love to explain t...

    Did you know that my family's oven broke and that now we cook all our meals over a campfire in our backyard? Actually, that isn't true, but my friend Rachel believed it. What is true is that I prefer to do things the "old-fashioned" way, even though I'm planning to go into a...

    Did you stumble across this essay at the top of a stack or the bottom? Are you reading it fresh or are you tired after reading countless others before it? Your answers to these questions will affect how you read these next 1,370 words. If my essay was at the top, I can safely assume that you are sti...

    Two general groups of people define society: the observers and the observed. Observers tend to think of themselves as superior. After all, they bother to observe in the first place. Flaunting their own awareness, they watch and judge, ever inflating their egos. In the words of Theodor Adorno, a Germ...

    Perched in my dad’s oversized recliner, I opened to the middle of the thickest chapter book I could get my hands on and began to follow the strings of jumbled letters with a sticky index finger. I could not read, but that was not going to stop me from pretending that I could. Role playing my dad...

    My friends complain that I am behind the times, and I have to admit that they are justified. I don't buy into commercials or follow celebrities and their fashion statements, and remain largely oblivious to all but the most commonly known pop culture references and trending slang – I only rece...

    I turn on the television to find an unfortunate and klutzy woman filmed in black and white losing a staged battle with a traditional product. Her unwieldy knife slips from the mushroom and cuts her finger, which she clutches in exaggerated agony. The lid flies from her blender as its contents shoot ...

    The afternoon sun penetrated the chilly air, making its way into the deer stand where I slept and illuminating my shameful lack of hunting prowess. My forehead rested on the windowsill, supporting most of my weight as I slumped forward with my butt sliding off an overturned pail. My fingers were han...

    It takes hundreds, if not thousands, of years for plastic products to decompose, yet humans come in contact with them for only a fraction of plastics’ total lifespans. Consumers use plastics for their intended uses, perhaps use them again, and dispose of them, where they take up space in landfills...

    Small talk has always irked me, probably because of its ability to turn any conversation into an exchange of meaningless words and universal opinions. As my mom’s only daughter, I believe I’ve experienced more than my fair share of mingling at parties. I’ve learned how small talk is essenti...
