I’m here to make you all an offer: would you like to buy a ten-year-old boy who’s obsessed with comic books? If not, I’d be willing to pay you in return for taking him. No? Well, okay.

Things were moving along fairly well; we bought a bassinet, received bags of baby clothes from generous friends, and worked on getting our room at Drew's cousin's house presentable.

For most of our lives, the United States was at war with the nation of Iraq, for reasons that I still to this day find unjustified. Growing up, we heard of cities like Baghdad and the corrupt leader named Saddam Hussein.

Ray Rice incident reflective of domestic violence among athletes

People are people and will make mistakes. Some mistakes are simply not easily forgiven. Ray Rice and his domestic violence case is an example of a mistake he should have to live with forever, knowing this mistake cost him it all — his fans, job and dignity. The NFL should follow through with a permanent suspension of Rice from the league. Though great talent is being left behind, bad actions deserve consequences. Allowing Rice to return to work would only hinder the message the NFL is trying to send: domestic violence will not be tolerated.

A terrible, terrible pain was prevalent in this one man’s life, and an image of him has been painted that will never fade from our memories, and that image will hopefully help motivate us to reach out to those who are also suffering, and even if we couldn’t rescue Robin Williams’ from his own demons, it’s not entirely too late. We can learn how to save others, for his sake.

Think about it, cigarettes give you lung cancer, pot makes you lose brain cells, but fries? Fries are for the quick snack, to complete a lunch when you have no money for anything else, for single parents to keep their kids happy when not even the Frozen soundtrack will do, for late night cramming sessions, they’re there for us no matter what we’re feeling as we get to the drive-thru. If only they didn’t kill us.

Rerun hell /ˈrēˌrən hel/: When you are watching an entire series but because you are behind and the newest seasons aren’t on Netflix yet, you are stuck trying to record all of them so you can somehow eventually watch them in order (sometimes takes years).

We have 13 days, 6 hours, 40 minutes, and about 51 seconds. Until when? Until my head explodes. Until I put my headset on and have Maddie turn the house lights down, have Natalia fade out the music, and try to have the audience suspend their disbelief for an hour and a half, maybe two.

I am never leaving my room again. Two weekends ago, I decided to actually have a social life and go to the movies with my friend, Megan. We went to see The Giver, which had come out the day before. It was an early movie so there weren't many people in the theater. We got our popcorn, talked to the friendly...
