    If you are reading this book review, chances are you’ve read a lot of book reviews. Hundreds. Thousands. Millions, if you’re dedicated. Maybe you read reviews before you read a book because you don’t want to waste your time. Maybe you read reviews because you think reading full books is a wast...

    Stardust Stardust. 378 words and then 178, and then 85, and then 25, and then one. and this is what I'm left with. Stardust. (I don't know much about stardust, so how I'm going to write for the next ten minutes on stardust is light years beyond me.) Well, starting with wh...

    I learned the meaning of love in a way that I never expected to. It started with a fit of self-loathing, where I told myself that I was not good enough, not enough. I am not the smartest or at the very top of the class. I am not the wittiest or the most daring. I am not the prettiest or the most all...

    I wish everyone could have a sister. There is something special about a sister that you love as dearly as I love mine. She is my shadow and my muse. She is my support and my critic. She is my inspiration and my insecurity. It seems quite impossible that she could be a trigger of su...

    Educator seems like a meaningless word compared to Ms. Jackie Hand. She deserves a title of merit, one awarded to the great mentors of the world's most renowned tales. She's my Miyagi, my Obi Wan, my Feeny, my Dumbledore and ­McGonagall. I had heard horror stories about Ms. Hand's freshman honors E...

    The water is still colder than normal, still clinging to the tail of winter although the ice thawed months ago. As the waves lap at the shore, we wait. Sea foam clings to the rocky shore like clouds that forgot how to fly. Dawn hasn't found us yet – the sky still struggles to awaken from the dark ...

    Since their start in 2008, the up and coming band, The Civil Wars, has reached a level of stardom that most nominees in the Vocal Duo of the Year category at this year's Country Music Awards have worked 10 years in the country music scene to accomplish. Being strongly endorsed by the soul ...

    Since the early 2000s, boy bands have fizzled out with the desire to wear ponchos and overalls. The pop music scene said “Bye, Bye, Bye” to NSYNC, and “Quit Playing Games” with the Backstreet Boys. It wasn’t “The Hardest Thing” to turn down 98 Degrees and New Kids on the Block stopped ...

    Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to predict the end. Even the most devout of religions want to get a hand in predicting the end of it all. While some predictions are more logically based on astronomy or books in the Bible or other holy texts, some are more ridiculous than flying ...

    In August, I sent a letter. In October, I recieved a response. On the front of the postcard, the great monuments of Iraq stand tall, proud, and magnificent. The Ziggurat of Ur with proud, sharp lines standing imposingly in a plain of copper sand; the rounded arc of the Ctesiphon guarded by a hal...

    Tearing into its third season, Vampire Diaries has taken quite a bite out of the CW weekly line-up. What began as the clichéd “girl is in love with undead brothers” plot-line, the series quickly spiraled into a chest-deep plot riddled with lies, love, and the supernatural. The series began ...

    How lonely it must be to not believe in God. Not just the Christian God, but the Islamic one, the Hindu ones, the Buddha one, the Norse or Greek. When people say they don’t believe in God, I have an overwhelming sense of pity for them. How lonesome they must be, how fearful, how lost. I do...

    As a writer, I have always had a word for everything. I play word games in my spare time for crying out loud. Still, I’ve been staring at a blank page for over a week, trying to find the right words for a day I will remember the rest of my life. Besides, how do you describe the day your dreams cam...

    Conformist. To me that is one of the ugliest, nastiest, most demoralizing words there is. It is a word used to describe someone who isn’t brave enough to be himself. Dictonary.com defines it as “a person who conforms, especially unquestioningly, to the unusual practices or standards of...

    You should so be thin that when you turn to the left, you completely disappear from view. Your hair should be long, curly, and constantly in such perfect place that Fabio would turn green with envy. Your teeth should be so white that you could signal ships into a harbor with nothing more than a mirr...
