    Stigma: Comic Books There is no question that the nerd ethos is active as another summer approaches presenting a plethora of superhero movies. But Hollywood supremacy aside, there is still a stigma involved in this culture. I am going to discredit some of the stereotypes. The stigma I address of is what individuals normally think of as the “nerd of comic books”.

  • Personal Narrative: How Xavier Changed My Life

    clothes while my suitcase returned in three days. The suitcase incident did not stop me from enjoying my stay in Paris. We visited some small markets around our hotel. The metro was really hard to understand. We visited many landmarks and sites, such as the Eiffel Tower. Madame Cooper warned us about pickpockets and we tried to blend in with the French citizens. We went to many chateaus (castles) and got some tours. My suitcase came on our 3rd day in France and I felt relieved. After touring and…
