When I was in the third grade I found out that Santa isn’t real. Word started to spread around the class and I was on the defense. I hopelessly tried to convince my friends that all the “rumors” were lies, but I barely believed myself as the evidence stacked against me. At a last attempt of discovering...

To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, each Christmas dinner has always closed with a question led by my grandfather,...

There’s nothing more exciting for an athlete of any sport than having a huge student section filled with all your classmates cheering you on for an important game.

After watching one of my all-time favorite movies, Miracle, in film class last month, it got me thinking: what made the success?

I am depressed. Some may say my reasoning is foolish but when the Ravens soil their chances of getting into the postseason I can’t help but feel hopeless. The Ravens had an inconsistent season. I was hopeful that this year with the acquisition of veteran wide receiver, Jeremy Maclin that the Ravens...

My hand is raised, sitting in English class observing the discussion questions being projected across the board I noticed not one hand was raised but my own. The questions were controversial, as they were meant to be. Being asked "is revenge necessary in life?" and "does power corrupt all...

  “What did you guys ask for Christmas?” The room went quiet. “Clothes,” a few girls murmur. “How fun!” The teacher sarcastically retorts. Well, as an 18-year-old, what else am I supposed to want? Every year, my mom will text me at the start of December, “what do you...
