School? Don’t know her. Don’t want to know her. Never heard of her. Truly, never experienced that emotion. It needs to be over. It’s almost over. But at this point, the school year is dragging on... and on… and on… and on. When will the 23rd get here? I’m sure I’ll miss school at some poin...

Memories of curling up on the couch with my sister, singing along with the puppets, and learning new things flood my mind when I read the headline: “Julia, A Muppet with Autism, Joins the Cast of ‘Sesame Street.’” Of course, I immediately loved her from the beginning. Sharing a name can do that...

I’m a mediocre English student. I’ve never loved English, but it’s better than math. This past week I took the AP Literature Exam, which had me thinking about all the books I’ve read in high school. I thought about everything, from the first book I read in freshman year, Anthem by Ayn Rand, to th...

My first big trip in the United States was to New York City. My brother was supposed to go with us, but he got really sick and had to come home early from college. I wasn’t sure if we were going to get to go at all. My parents thought it would be a good idea for my mom and I to go and separate us sin...

In December, I went on a Royal Caribbean cruise with my family. We flew to Fort Lauderdale first. That was an adventure; I thought I was literally going to die. We didn’t fly directly from Baltimore to Florida either. We had to go to Nashville first to try and save money. By the time we got to Florida, ...
