Me the mom

I took a turn being the mom for my family. When I turned eleven, my mom endured strenuous and vexatious back problems. She grew up with scoliosis and now it was affecting her day to day life. She would come home from work and go straight to bed. She forced herself to work because she carried the insurance for my family. My little sister and I were left to fend for ourselves while our dad worked strange hours to control medical bills. Together we endured the ups and downs of ineffectual “guess and check” procedures the doctors were prescribing. My mom finally went in for surgery. Within three years she…

Betta Belize It!

Gales Point, Belize, a place that is rich in their friendships, food, and amazing faith, yet so poor in everything else. Five high schoolers, including myself and three leaders had the opportunity to go minister to the people in Gales Point , Belize over spring break. “Yeah, white people.” We heard the moment we arrived at the school, where we would be spending most of our time.

Parklife by Blur

OK, OK, before I start this review, let me just say this: I’ve never liked so-called “boy bands”. Absolutely can’t stand them. When they don’t have screaming teenage girls at their feet, they’re writing cutesy songs about peace, love, and happiness. Even the masters of the genre, The Beatles (if one must put them under that genre) were huffing LSD while scribbling down “All You Need Is Love”. Yet for some reason or other, I decided on a whim to take a moment to listen to the 90’s Britpop group Blur’s third album Parklife (probably because of it’s rave review in my “1000 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die”…

Avatar: The Last Airbender

“Water. Earth. Fire. Air.” These words begin every episode, following a sequence of incredibly animated and beautifully hand-drawn visuals. The first time watching, I was surprised and captivated by the cartoon’s serious tone, following the turmoil of a hundred-year war fought between four nations in a supernatural setting. The characters possessed such intricate depth, and the worldbuilding had me awestruck with how it depicted each nation with defined individuality. Every aspect of the show is perfectly delivered, able to bring you to tears by way of laughter or sadness, culminating the fantasy show, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Avatar: The Last Airbender’s narrative follows a world torn and mutilated through an…

“Moo”re Than You Can Handle

“Moo”re Than You Can Handle Today Americans consume 92 pounds of beef a year. But eating all that beef takes 16 gallons of gasoline just to produce 100 servings of beef. So basically it takes 3407 gallons of gasoline a year to produce that beef. If you look at it a bad way all that gasoline creates a greenhouse affect that is causing Global Warming. Industrial meat production also has an impact on the health of cows- and in the end the health of humans. The stomachs of cattle are meant to digest grass not grain that requires the cattle to get routine antibiotics- and a growth hormone to speed…
