Dogs are Better than People

Dear humans, In a lot of cultures, being called a “dog” is a huge disgrace. Dogs are associated with the dirt and being lowly and mangy. We've all seen movies set in some ancient culture where a character is called a dog and then probably slapped or spit on afterwards. Even here in America,...

Dear Americans, We finished Hamlet in class today, and it is confirmed: I am Hamlet. His problems are my problems (more or less), his flaws are my flaws, and his thoughts are my thoughts. Hamlet is pessimistic, optimistic, emotional, rational, brilliant, and naive all at the same time! He is a...

Hi guys, it’s Erin again! Throughout the past three weeks I have found something a little worrying. I have PDD. Post Disneyland Depression. I miss Disneyland. Their 60th anniversary celebration just ended two weeks ago and I missed it. I have been constantly watching Disney movies on repeat, and while...

Dear fellow overthinkers, Do you ever feel like you just have so much in your head and you have no idea how to even begin to get it all out? If you don't, good, try and stay that way. This rant isn't for you guys though, I'm talking to the people like me: people who are so filled with thoughts and...

If you’ve played a contact sport — whether it be football, wrestling or hockey — you know one thing: getting injured hurts, but being embarrassed hurts unimaginably worse. No athlete wants to be called out for being a “crybaby” or “weak”: instead athletes thrive on being the toughest person...

My dear readers, Holy crap Hamlet got me messed up. We’re only in Act 2 and already my mind has been blown like a billion times and I’ve probably said “#relatable” or “retweet” about a billion and one times. Hamlet is already trippy enough on its own, as Hamlet questions literally everything...

My dear readers, First of all, I stole that from Jane Eyre, a book that I never read and still wrote an essay about in my English class. I got a B on it, which is pretty good considering. Anyways, today I’m going to rant about rants. So lately, all my blog posts have been angry, frustrated, annoyed,...

WHY IS PAUL REVERE SO IRRHLEVANT? Richard Henry Lee. Why did his popularity spike up in this year’s APUSH classes? When Ms. Blount mentioned Richard Henry Lee in class, multiple heads perked up in excitement. Never has there been a class so interested in a seemingly unimportant figure in history. The...

Dear the few people who actually read blogs, So apparently I’m a blogger. It’s strange because to me bloggers are all fedora-wearing hipsters who write on their anything-but-Apple laptops while stroking their goatees and drinking coffee. I hate wearing hats, have absolutely no facial hair, get...

Dear boys and girls of the world, To be honest people, you don't need a relationship. What? Did he just say that? Yes, I did and here’s why: You’re fine on your own! Even the most desperate people can get by without being in a relationship. And really, if they're really that desperate they...
