As a result, over that two week course, I tried many different foods and went to lots of fascinating places. One new thing I tried was raw oyster, a delicacy. My cousi...

    Stem cell research is a highly controversial topic. The main controversy about this is that it would take years of time and money to scientifically discover the abilities of stem cells. It would also take the destruction of human cells, including embryonic cells, to research and test on. On the cont...

    Behind her in the living room, someone cleared his throat. She whirled around, heart thrashing against her sternum, eyes wide, and faced the man in the dark suit. She let out a great gasp of relief and brought her hand to her heart to try to stop the furious flutter. “It’s only you.” She l...

    I held onto the straps of my backpack and jumped, landing on the tips of my toes. I balanced myself, then, started walking nowhere particular, with my hands stretched out in front of me, reaching for a wall. My hands touched something cold and hard. I used that as my guide and started walking, agai...

    I found my car hidden in the trees of the forest, in which they had decided to hide their spaceship. I searched through my backpack, because it seemed like a good idea. The aliens mostly took my things and put them in my backpack, I had concluded. I was right. My keys were in my backpack. Lucky me!...

    “Ugh,” I whispered. My head hurt and my whole body ached. I opened my eyes to the bright light, almost as bright as the sun. I looked down at myself. I was strapped into a gurney! I looked around my surroundings. Everything was so different and… advanced. The feeling that overcame me was not ...

    When I was a child, a little kid, I was not afraid of anything. I mean sure, the occasional monster under the bed or in the closet thing, but when I was a child, I wasn’t afraid of embarrassment or lack of confidence or atychiphobia, the fear of failure. Yes, I learned that word, atychiphobia, bec...

    We walked out of Advanced Bio together, laughing. Oh, Mr. Hansen can be so funny. I had my head back laughing, while Eric grinned and looked at me. The other students in the hallway rushed past us, getting to their lockers, and scurrying to their next class. We stopped near a wall. “What?” I ...

    When the world’s messed up, And my day gets worse, Where is my shoulder to cry on? When I’m faced with bullies, And my things are destroyed, Where is my shoulder to cry on? When I’ve received a bad grade, Or lost a competition, Where is my shoulder to cry on? When I’m faced wi...

    I’m inspired by someone I’ve never met, someone I may never know. I may never know their name, either, or how they look. In California, there was this one boy. He was seen in an alley, smoking, in a gang. I don’t really blame him for going in a gang… turning to the bad side. His father had ...
