    I walk out of the hardware store with my mother. My father has (unsurprisingly) already walked out, bored, and (also unsurprisingly) is talking to a man. The man is older, probably similar to my father’s sixty years and wears simple clothes. He appears part Latin which is unsurprising for Panama. ...

    I applied to one college. Yes, only one. From the offset this sounds fool-hardy (of course everybody told me that,) but through early decision this was possible. I wouldn’t suggest only applying one place to anyone because if you don’t get in there’s a lot of stress, but for me it worked. If I...

    I ran through Times Square, the rain pouring down, my new friend by my side. I couldn’t ask for anything better. It was the final night of my one week program at Barnard and I was heartbroken we were all leaving the next day. I spent a week studying modernism as part of the Liberal Arts Intens...

    Salty wind combs through my knotted hair Crashes of water intersect the boat. We move so loudly, yet somehow silently Across the liquid expanse. I stare out at the tiny lights Each one a world entire, The wind brings a single tear to my eye. I can’t imagine that anything is better than A f...

    Apprehension flooded my stomach as the plane touched down in Panama. I had visited the country before and loved it, but this was not a vacation. We were moving here for an entire year. My uncle would be living here as a scientist for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and my parents decide...

    When my grandmother immigrated to New York from Cuba in 1924 she was nine. To ensure success in her new country, she was instructed by her mother to never speak Spanish or identify herself as Cuban. This approach served her well; she graduated high school and received a degree from Hunter College in...

    One of the most anticipated films of the year, The Great Gatsby hit the big screens with a glittering boom. For weeks, store checkout lines have caused people to forget the current decade with magazine covers featuring the roaring twenties. A great piece of literature to most and a nearly sacred te...

    Sports are not my thing. They never have been. I find myself challenged at playing them and quite frankly bored by watching them. However as a sophomore in high school aspiring to top end colleges I saw sports as the one thing I was missing. When the winter sports season neared I got the paper and l...

    A tiny hummingbird With buzzing wing Declares the word Once more, “it’s spring” My cautious mind replies “It won’t come, don’t set your heart” But to my surprise The days set a warmer chart There is sunshine in my soul each day When blossoms bud and tulips smile As the w...

    When a director chooses to create a film from a highly successful and complex book he has an enormous challenge. Scenes will be deleted, characters altered and concessions made to the restrictions imposed by the movie format. This is certainly the case for director Marc Forster’s The Kite Runner....

    Use literary devises in your thesis And don’t forget to have a hook. Remember your syntax and your diction When you analyze your book. You can talk about foreshadowing But remember to use a metaphor. And if you wish to be exemplary, Please, please don’t be a bore. Rem...

Around half of traditional marriages end in divorce. Yet somehow it is same-sex marriage that some people believe will destroy the “sanctity” of ma...
