Not All Heroes Wear Capes (But Some Do)

I was looking for an old list of character names on an hard drive earlier this week, and I came across a folder I thought I'd lost forever when my old computer died. The following is my college admissions essay, which I wrote back in 2009 before I applied to various schools. This essay got... Continue Reading →

The Sky is Blue

After being discouraged from taking an art class while in high school, I decided to use one of my electives in college to take a Drawing course. I had always enjoyed art, so it seemed like a good choice to expand my skills and learn new techniques. Long story short, I hated it. But I... Continue Reading →

When I Left

When I left England, part of me stayed behind. Part of me still rides the train into the city through the early morning haze, and sits at a table by the thatch-roof cottage, sipping tea and admiring the serenity of Richmond Park.

Worth 1000 Words #1: Frolicking

In the spring/summer of 2011, I spent two months traversing England with a group of about 20 other students and a rotating cast of four professors. I had my inhibitions about going at first - I had only just finished a rough first year of college, wasn't sure I would be able to make friends... Continue Reading →

Breaking Down

Whilst digging through some old flash-drives, I found one of my old creative writing pieces from the first semester of my final year of college, in 2012. Just thought I'd share it because the memory made me laugh. For reference, I'm now 24, and I was 20 when this was written.  _______ Some mornings I wake... Continue Reading →
