It’s Time for the (Sex) Talk

After reading that title, you probably felt a bit uncomfortable reading on, didn’t you? That’s American society for you– even reading about sex (much less talking about it) feels awkward. Please read on, brave soul. Let’s start from the beginning. I grew up attending a small-town Oklahoma public school, where...

Heart Disease and the Average (Burger Eating) Joe

If you’ve ever lived in or been to America, you’d know that food is one of our favorite things. We love all kinds of food at all times of day– breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and the so-called “fourth meal” that happens in the middle of the night when we wake...

How The Boy Who Lived Changed My Life

Before I was in the fourth grade, I didn’t do a whole lot of recreational reading. Sure, I did some as I was told for the AR points (that we were basically told to base our academic worth on), but I hadn’t found a series that I just absolutely loved....

Blackfish and Sea World

As a kid, there were only two vacation destinations in America that I knew of (the only important ones to me, I should say): Disney World, and Sea World. Sea World was a place that all of my friends had been– they had gotten to see Shamu and all the...
