An essay I wrote for school

One of the last assignments I have for this school year in history/English is a personal narrative. The prompt is the question, what was a time you felt like an outsider? This is what I wrote. Theoretically speaking, the line between life as an only child and life with siblings should be dark, thick, and… Continue reading An essay I wrote for school

New movies coming out this summer that I think are noteworthy

The story of this post begins with a podcast. At school, my friend (who I wrote this birthday card to) asked if I had listened to The Popcast's most recent episode, Episode 297: Summer Movie Review.

I try my hand at black out poems

The "yes, we're sinking" poem is called "Overheard on the Titanic," and it's by Austin Kleon. He's very arguably the person who made blackout poems the thing they are today. A while back, I did a post of some awesome poems I found online (mainly by him), but today's post is of some that I… Continue reading I try my hand at black out poems
