    the Thoreau’s statement because if a man is constantly working, he never has time to connect deeply with society, nature and himself. Argument #1 Gone are the days in which man could communicate face to face without a computer screen or a phone. These communication rituals have faded into an abyss and have been replaced with the quick and accessible clutches of FaceTime in Skype. Nowadays, we can speak directly to each other through the click of a single button. We are glued to our cameras as we communicate with someone through pixels on a screen. We are use to a quick way of communicating with each other to save time, however, this might not be the most efficient, humane way to communicate. We grew up with applications like Instagram…

    curiosity. Its white fur shimmers as it grabs the left side of its scarlet blazer, pulling out a pocket watch. It turns its attention back to me, shooting a sly grin, and asks me, "Must know the time, young man?"

What I felt before, when the lust of battle died in me, when I started cursing everyone without a second thought, is nothing, NOTHING, compared to what I feel know. It’s almost comical.

I grabbed my backpack from the table and quickly ran out the door toward the woods not sure what was lurking in its darkness. I ran through the trees as briskly as I could, nimble on my feet. I knew no one could catch me now, no one knows what I’ve done. I was free to live my own life without rules or procedures to follow. A small grin crept…

'" I never saw the world of education the same any more after that day. I…

    listening to one of my favorite songs, and I found myself strutting throughout the hallway. Quickly stopping I started laughing at myself, as I slowed my walking down to a slower pace. Finally, I had concluded to smile, yet I was elated inside. The surface of my face was emotionless, as my eyes drifted past my locker outside through the back door. Approaching I could hear a select few talking amongst themselves aloud, however, they seemingly looked towards my direction, as I listened to the…
