I made sure to pack extra money because I was positive I was going to be hungry and that there was going to be lots of food. Yep, hate to break it to ...

My night was going pretty well, or so I thought. I was just watching the commercials in between the Olympic swimming clips when a McDonald’s advertisement popped up. I listened to a man presenting their “wonderful” improvement of chicken nuggets. “Introducing McDonald’s new Chicken McNuggets; made wit...

I was playing my Xbox, chatting with my Star Wars fanatic friend, when out of the blue he tells me that Kenny Baker slipped away.  Who is Kenny Baker, you ask?  He’s the guy who fit inside R2-D2.  No one saw his face.  But they knew he was there. On the 13th of August, 2016, Kenny Baker, be...

The first day of high school...the first word that comes to mind is terrifying! I woke up in the morning so nervous. What was I supposed to expect? What I see in movies?

Oh no! The horror! I am struck with the realization that I am back in school. I have returned to my regular schedule of work and sleep.  Ugh.

How do you bid someone a permanent farewell? How do you somehow forget all the times you’ve shared with someone so close to you? Well, maybe you just don’t. You don’t let those precious memories fade. You don’t let them slip away. Even if they try to leave, even if it’s for a second, you...

Our generation is better prepared for a zombie apocalypse than an hour without wireless connection.  How?  Cornell scientists have already been studying this matter, and they have created a zombie apocalypse simulation.  They advise people to flee to sparsely populated areas, preferably the Rockies, though ...

Disney movies are evolving. They are slowly becoming more enjoyable for older individuals and less happy-go-lucky. Disney is at last getting more connected with reality. I mean, there’s a dinosaur with a birth defect that loses his father, and a bunny with big dreams that is bullied throughout her l...
