    While studying magnetism in physics class, my teacher told an interesting story about salmon. He said that the Earth’s magnetic field helps salmon find their way home up the river. They travel across seemingly empty, featureless expanses of ocean back to the place they were hatch. I felt a similar...

    10 PM Slowly, I got up to get a piece of tissue paper. Urghh, I still felt a little dizzy. I needed some more pain relievers. After I blew my nose, I took two Tylenols. This is not what I wanted to do on the day of my homecoming dance. Sick and being stuck at home. I opened to the third chapter...

    Skipping down the hill, We were three shadows dancing in the night. Mom, big sister, and I- We ran toward the old creek, That lay quietly beneath, The abandoned bridge. The moon gave us glimpses of tiny creatures- Little tadpoles and frogs Hopping along the currents. As I dipped my legs un...

    “Where are you from?” Someone asked me a while ago. It wasn’t an odd question; I’ve encountered it numerous times before. Yet, it was my answer “here” that surprised me., A rush of shame swept over me as I asked myself why I lied. Maybe it was because I didn’t want to be judged; I want...
