    Sympathy For Living, From The Dead To our knowledge the modern zombie has no consciousness, it’s somewhere in between alive and dead, walking around with a need to feed on human flesh with no parallel to the person the body used to belong to. Mike Carey’s zombie is much different, Nick is essentially still conscious but no longer eats, breaths or sleeps and his existence is basically meaningless. The story revels how this man, a stockbroker with no sense of community or companionship finds his way back to humanity after becoming a zombie. He meets a woman named Janine and she gives him this sense of community that changes something inside of him. There are three major turning points where Nick starts feeling sympathy for Janine, and his humanity slowly gets restored. Nick is withering away in silence after he built bigger and stronger walls to keep people out of his new home. He heard a noise and turned on his camera to find Janine. She was looking close to death, sitting in a corner with chapped lips and three layers of clothes on, he knew she had to have been homeless. It’s Nick’s reaction to this event that is prominent in his recovery to humanity. “ I could just let her die” (236) was the first thought that entered his mind. “I could open up the doors to let her back out the way she’d come, but she might be too weak to move…..If I opened the doors someone could get in. Safer just to leave her” (239) these emotions at first glance seem selfish, it appears he is only…

    “The best way to protect yourself is to be as fluid and formless as water.” One of my favorite quotes begins, “Never bet on stability or lasting order. Everything and everyone can change.” This is a simple quote until one actually tries to apply it to life. When betrayal becomes a factor in a relationship, it should be easy to leave said relationship behind. However, leaving someone is always easier said than done when love is involved, despite the fact that the relationship causes more harm…

    If something makes you happy, does that mean that it is the best action? In the theory of Utilitarianism, there are two "creators," Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill. They put forth the idea that actions are right only if they increase happiness, and are wrong if they result in unhappiness. In this essay, we explore the theory of Utility, and then understand the theory through Plato’s two challenges, whether an action is good beyond what a group or individual in authority claims, as well as if…

    I had no prior experience with any camp nor had I any experience with 5th and 6th graders. I looked up pictures from the year prior and in my mind I thought that this was not going to be hard. I had the expectation that all I was going to be doing was watching kids play with robots and helping them figure out solution to their program when they were stuck, but boy was I wrong. I went about it all wrong. I was more interested in getting through the class than actually learning something. I wanted…

    My “personal odyssey” occurred relatively recently, this past summer while I was at a sleepaway camp in New Hampshire. The last year you are eligible to come, the summer before your sophomore year, you stay in a cabin off the main camp called Cabin 12, which holds great significance due to the fact that you’re the oldest on campus, and closer to a counselor then a camper. Being engaged, on time to activities, and having extreme enthusiasm to an almost unbearable point. I was exposed to a…

    moment I was at home, getting ready to leave my house for my final day as a camp counselor and for the final day in Willow Grove Day camp’s sixty-two year history. I threw on my staff shirt and mesh shorts, grabbed a quick chocolate chip granola bar for the road, lathered up my SPF 30 lotion, compiled my backpack and waited for my ride. The drive to camp was an emotional one for me. I had spent fifteen of my eighteen summers at this camp, the same camp, that has thrived for over six decades.…

    wrong choice. Being apart of the Camp Ojibwa Brotherhood is a privilege. Every summer since I was 8, I looked forward to spending my summer in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, isolated from the real world with my best friends. Every summer getting off the bus that arrives at camp. One of my favorite hobbies is playing basketball. My freshman season was a grind. Our playbook freshman year was like gibberish to me.
