You’ve decided to take a trip to the local bookstore. You take some time to browse the shelves and eventually find a book. Unfortunately, it’s on the very top shelf and you can’t reach.

Not seeing anyone around to help, you do the only logical thing you can do- you climb the tall shelf. Skillfully you place your foot on the second shelf and check its strength. You keep climbing and bite your lip, reaching for the book, not want...

Yes, there were moments of delight: the smell of old, paper books collecting dust, the rough unvacuumed carpet under my feet, and the sound of distant chatter from round, wooden tables. The sunlight peering in from the tall window set the spotlight for the girl sitting down focused on what she came to focus on.

I let her sit on my mind and continued to walk past her. Looking for a seat to take, a bit of a dispute with myself to...

"Hey, so, I want to talk to this beautiful girl, but what should I say?"

"Well.. you could always play Five Questions."

"What's that?"

“You take turns asking questions, but there can only be five total questions. I made it up just now."

“I see, that sounds cool! Wait here and l'll get you a free drink for your troubles. Any requests?"

"Oh, thank you! Umm.. mango bubble tea?"

"No problem, leave it to me!

“Shift's done, here's your dri...

Imagine dancing with her betwixt the rivers of light and shadows. The world dims to the soft glow of starlight, and in the west, a crescent moon sings a song of shooting stars. 

My eyes are taken away. Time, the great slaughterer of tyrants and goddesses alike, turns into a powerless statue of stone. Fear, the horror-filled nightmare who has swallowed many faithful prayers, breaks its feeble siege against my grins. 

Two coal-bla...

Imagine: It was opening night at the cafe. The starry night matched perfectly with the warm atmosphere inside. Sipping a sweet warm cup of tea, you were full of anticipation for the next act.

The lights switched off and a spotlight illuminated him. There he was- guitar in hand and mic stand set- the first notes hit. Many were focused on the melody, but he intrigued you more.

Soft black hair and warm dark brown eyes that turned...

You wait impatiently in your front yard, pacing back and forth. Your mind operates frantically as you try to figure out what to say once you see that magnificent face of Keanu’s. It is your second date with him and your heart has completely fallen for him before the first date even ended.

You long awaited this moment, the excitement and fear mixed have been driving you mad for the past few days. Suddenly, you see Keanu's black...

Like most people, I have a lot of trouble keeping up with New Year’s resolutions.  More often than not, my motivation gives way to procrastination before I inevitably give up.  This year, instead of repeating old mistakes, I committed to the simple goal of eating healthier for just one week.  

I frequently experience cycles of sugar rushes and crashes that make focusing in class difficult, and this was one of the...

New Year’s resolution are the fresh starts everyone needs to kick off the new year.  

The New Year's resolution I decide to take on for a week was limiting my phone usage to a maximum of three hours a day.  Before starting the challenge, I would on average spend roughly about five to six hours a day on my phone.

Although two hours may not seem like a significant adjustment, I quickly began to learn that that was definitely...

New years make people rethink their habits, being seen as a time for improvement through New Year’s resolutions.  Anything from working out, to being social, to simply giving up a bad habit like nail biting or stress eating. I kept the resolution of getting eight hours of sleep.

I began on a weekend which made it easy to get proper sleep.  This ease disappeared quickly once the week started. Late start was forgiving since I cou...

      Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas announced their reunion as the Jonas Brothers on February 28th, 2019. Immediately, they had the world screaming for albums, tour dates, and merchandise.  The Jonas Brothers: Happiness Begins Tour got underway late this summer, making its way to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles by the end of October.

 I had the opportunity to bring out my eight-year-old self at these shows on both...
