Some Kind of Lesson: Regret

Sam woke up to the sound of mourning doves cooing. He looked over to the alarm clock, his thick glasses distorting the bright red digits that told the time. 6:32 am. He panicked, realizing that he had forgotten to set his alarm, and he moved quickly to slap on the radio. “… and that’s all […]

Beyond

Paper on the US Adolescence

So for English this year we had to read this excerpt from the book A Tribe Apart, and write a page response on it. The article was about America’s adolescence and how we can be volatile and misunderstood and all that great stuff you hear about all the time. I kinda liked the paper, so I […]
