  • Personal Narrative: My Letter To Utah State University

    days after Christmas. I lost her. She was ninety-eight years old. When she passed away a part of me broke; I cried for days. I wouldn’t eat; I couldn’t sleep. My family thought I was having a nervous breakdown and honestly I was. I had lost the person I turned to when I felt I had nowhere else to go, when I was scared and lost and confused. Losing her made me more scared, lost, and confused than I had ever been before. She was my closest friend and the one person I knew would be there for me no matter what.

I chose to live in Valley View Towers because they have the shortest walk to Logan Cemetery where my great-grandmother is buried. I go to her grave once a week and talk to her just like I did when I called. I tell her about everything that is going on.

That is how I felt when I finished high school, even when I started college; it is only now beginning to change. During the fall of this year I rushed to join a sorority; my great-grandmother was a Kappa Delta here at Utah State University in the forty’s. All the tales of what her and her sorority sisters used to get up to…

  • Logan Heroism

    “Set in 2029, “Logan” is the closest thing to a valedictory the Marvel universe has yet concocted.”1 ”Unlike any of its predecessors, Logan feels organic and, despite being loaded with plenty of references and Easter eggs, manages to work well as a standalone film.” 2“James Mangold’s Logan is a grizzly and exceptionally dark character-driven tale; one that is unlike any other comic book-inspired story you would have come across before.”² “When the newer superhero films go for sincerity, they…
