There aren’t really any instructions when it comes to writing. People find a lot of answers or resources for the careers they are pursuing after doing a quick online search. But writing is different. Especially for teen authors. I am no expert in this field, and I would be lying if I said I knew … Continue reading Support for Teen Authors Wanting to Self-Publish

When I could not form thoughts, or even ask simple questions (like asking to go to the bathroom), I turned to paper. My failure to speak allowed me to listen, observe, and then inscribe. This is the main reason why I hold writing so close to my heart--more than drawing or singing or baking or running--since it will always be my most eloquent form of communication. The words I say aloud are never as honest or precise as the ones I type and scribble.
People have a tendency to accept hopelessness and helplessness. What can I do? I don’t have any money to fix these problems—why should I bother? The way we spend the limited money we do have actually has a much larger impact than we realize, and it is one of the main things we tend to … Continue reading Stop Giving THESE Corporations Power
What would the people of 300 years ago use our current technology for? A (dumb) scholarship essay~ ~~~~ Imagine if the technological advancements we made today were done nearly 300 years ago. AI’s (Artificial Intelligence units), Google Glasses, and cellphone-caused backaches would become an early plague on our society.

Getting people to care about things is very difficult. Especially if they can’t see it. If you haven’t studied the importance of the environment and nature as a whole, do not bother now. Because at this point, I’m guessing you’ll only want a summary, the CliffsNotes to the situation. Listed below are a few selfish … Continue reading A Few Selfish Reasons to Care About the Environment (Amazon Rainforest Response)
For six decades, Harvard was the only college to exist in America. Hardly anyone finished high school in the 1800’s, let alone applied to an elite university, and they were quick to get to work and start a family, as the life expectancy was only 40 years. With such a short life, it makes sense … Continue reading 5%
I kept telling myself that people are born naturally exceptional at certain skills, that some people are naturally good at drawing and I wasn't one of them; I was denying myself the ability to try. And failing to try will always be a disservice to yourself.
