    “I still collect toys.Toys are a reflection of society. They are the tools that society uses to teach and enculturate children into the adult world. Toys are not innocent.” (Burden). When you think of toys you probably think about dolls or Hot Wheels. What you probably don’t know is the toys can vary into anything. Toys are usually used to entertain yourself, but what if they represent more than just that. It can be a famous cite, make you question society, or just make you think about how we’re

    A Strange Meeting - Original Writing On a bone chilling Friday morning in December, 2000 a tall hooded man got out of a Toyota Supra in the suburbs of London. I was hiding behind a large garbage bin. I came to know that a fight was going to happen between the two most famous gangs in London, The Eagles and The Scorpions. As it was foggy I could not figure out who the man was who got out of a Toyota Supra. But he seemed to be a six foot tall man, wearing a knuckle puncher on his right hand

He said the skirt was too short and the heels were too attention drawing. He even told me I'm walking wavy and that he doesn't like the

    Travelogue - Original Writing It's cold. I'm cold. So cold that I can just see the smallest little flakes of snow beginning to fall from the night sky. Well not that I can see the sky, I can't even tell if its cloudy, the orange glow and the glare of street lamps mask everything above me. Hang on; it's snowing, so it has to be cloudy, ha! Let me check my watch; it says 7:00PM, I think it's usually a few minutes fast. Such a tacky and cheap watch it was, straight from Argos's bargain section

    The Price of Freedom For what seemed like the millionth time, I tried to get comfortable. I tried to shift slightly, but again, as before, unseen others crowded me; their close proximity preventing any movement and fuelling my claustrophobia. I guess the darkness was my greatest fear, its blanket of gloom at first merely depressing me, but as time progressed it began to gnaw at me like an anorexic rat. I briefly wondered if the others around me felt the same, but my companions remained mute

    The light turned red, and I hit the brake pedal. I looked over to my right and saw my little pixie friend covering her eyes with her hands, “What is wrong Alice? I have this thing perfectly under control.” A hint of annoyance dripped in my voice. “Yeah, I know Bella, you are doing fine. But it just freaks me out a little bit that Jasper and Edward refused to ride in here.” Alice finished finally opening her eyes and looking at me with a little bit of desperation. She sighed, rather loudly. “Alright

    The moon was hanging down from the sky with just a quarter of her shine. I was meandering home, almost staggering after a hard day of play rehearsal. The streets were silent and desolate. There was not a sight of anyone. Street lamps were broken and their glass was all shattered and the broken glass was scattered on the floor. Black cats were idling and some were perching on the lawn of the sleeping people of Hong Kong. Rats were dashing around the dirty and blocked ditches. As I entered

    Crash Course Ever since I was young, I have had a fascination with bikes and motorcycles. I enjoyed reading and learning about them. As an adolescent riding my bike was a sort of nirvana for me. Interestingly enough, I was never very skilled at the art of bicycle riding. True, I did find it interesting and exciting, among other things, but I just wasn't any good at it. I would be willing to venture that the number of accidents I had on my bike would rival the totals of some race riders, although

    Advice - Is it Better to Give than to Receive? Advice and the language it’s given in can work only if the person in need of it can handle what is being said to them and accept it. Otherwise it just goes in one ear and out the other. Advice to me needs to be spoken in a calm and rational way or I tend not to listen to it. It can be advice from parents, relatives, friends, colleagues, or just about anyone, even myself. Advice given to me when I was younger was a lot different than when I got

    Losing My Edge I was friends with everyone on the North team, our rivals, but during the season, we seemed liked enemies. We always talked crap to each other. "Who's going to state this year?" We would say. Back to us they would respond, "Who went to State last year?" The whole season, we anticipated playing North. It all started since the first practice. Our coach would scream, "North is practicing harder than you, they are getting in shape, they are preparing." This made us very angry and

    The Chi Omega Spirit - Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Success For as long as I can remember I have set high goals for myself regarding my future, my friendships, and my education. Entering college with these standards I knew that I wouldn’t settle for less than my best, and I would strive to amaze myself at my success. One thing I never fit into my planned path of achievement was any type of struggle, or obstacle that could alter the way I have thought for so long. The first month of college

    Searching for a Home I arrived "home" on Sunday night, from a two week vacation, which was nice in that we went to very nice places, and in that I had, for the first time in a while, the sort of vacation which did not involve a lot of driving around and which really succeeded in making me feel that I was gone, out of my real life, away, for a while. However, I did not succeed in accomplishing the mental task I had set out for myself for these two weeks. This task was I suppose a variant of

    Haunted One day I was walking along side a road that not to many people travel on. All of a sudden it started storming really bad. I didn't want to get sick so I decided to run into an old abandoned house for cover. No one lived there, I was sure of that. As I got in, I looked around and noticed what a spooky house it was. It seemed really spooky. I saw a large room that was the foyer. The room had a checkered tile floor. It was lit a dark blue color. There were two lights on either

I don’t believe they all gave up so easily, I was the only one who stood up to that Goole character. I knew he wasn’t a real inspector all along; no one on the police force would dare speak to our family in that impertinent manner! I hope this next inspector is at least not a fraud.

    Short Critical Essay on Silent Joe I first heard about Silent Joe at the Bare Bones Writers Retreat, held in the mountains above San Diego by the Sisters In Crime. T. Jefferson Parker, its author, was invited to speak. The buzz: "I couldn't put the book down." Everyone seemed to agree that Silent Joe was the best-written character they'd ever seen. I never read murder mysteries. Don't like `em. But I picked up a copy of Silent Joe. From the first page, T. Jeff Parker salt-and-peppers every
