    There’s something uncomfortable about gender stereotypes, and not just the offensive part. The stereotype is clear: the delicate, sun-shaded, doe-eyed damsel, and the roaring buff man’s man. She’s frilly and he’s a woodcut. They work out perfectly on screen. It’s also an unfair portray...

    For some, the 650 million-year-ago past isn’t so far away. At the Jurassic World luxury resort, genetically fabricated dinosaurs pave the gateway to the ultimate theme park, where kids at heart (and actual kids) are dazzled beyond their wildest dreams in the face of roaring specimens of the past...

    Books, and writing; that was easy stuff. I’d figured out the secret early. As far as I was concerned, the only way to write was to cram as many adjectives into one sentence as possible without sounding constipated. None of that one-word-one-sentence teen gunk, mind you. I figured it out. Flash s...

    Hailing from the South is the story combo that will set in stone the identity of Flannery O’Connor—short stories laced in truth, good solid Christian faith, as well as often blood-letting horror sum up as several great adventures into the unknown. Those frontiers venture into the hearts of goo...

    It puts you in the minority to know nothing of the Holocaust, the WWII genocide that mass murdered nearly 6 million Jews. But it puts you in a special minority to know much at all of the Rwandan genocide, the killing that erupted between the majority Hutu and minority Tutsi peoples in 1994. There,...

    2014 was when I began the Holy Hitchhike, a modestly obnoxious column on my varying opinion. It all began with a study on the red-haired boom in teen fiction. And here, a whole year later, why your latest literary masterpiece might not be completely yours… For a writer, the whole existential c...

    This kid eats anything. And everything. There’s a few reasons why. There is no way you can make me skip breakfast: it’s either bus with breakfast or no bus at all. My skinny girl crisis was resolved in prehistoric times; the few times I’ve missed meals were purely unintentional and thusly ...

    David, a little shepherd boy, was not meant to destroy the monstrous Goliath. All the odds tower against him; and precisely for those reasons the tale of David and Goliath has been cemented in history. It remains a common figure of speech today when we describe the underdog pulling through all obs...

    What happens in the two seconds you meet someone for the first time? Are you picking up on more than their hair, expression, or clothes? Can these snap judgments we make affect more than we think? And how powerful are they, truly? New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell blends psychological thinking ...

    Unfortunately, I present a case for the little Asian girl stereotype. I exceed all standards; I perfectly assume the guise of a quiet, smart, musical genius imported straight from Beijing. And I know it. Well, why? I could write a whole other Holy Hitchhike on what makes this kid so dang quiet, ...

    Pharaohphobia. The God-given phobia of mummies. I had my sister search it up while I rocked myself back and forth on my knees and moaned. Well, now I have it. I at least have the name. The question must be eating you up: the Holy Hitchhiker? A scaredy cat? Madame Ala Nova, horrified by some ...

    It’s true. My sister loves war movies and so do I. Chances are, so do you. A few at the top of our list include Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Avengers, Narnia, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean. Not to mention the Hunger Games, the Mortal Instruments, the Divergent series, ...
