    The Onion in Me People have a tendency to look remarkably like their pets. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t look much like Onion; her round blue eyes, stubby legs, and short squished snout are all but alien to my own features. On the outside, I bear practically no resemblance to my feline friend. Yet on the inside I hope that I look even remotely as beautiful as she does.

It was as if my energy had dissipated into her. Contrary to my dad’s pessimism, she was very much alive for her first birthday. I watch her from time to time, trying to understand her without words. Together, we’ve dealt with loss, success, and failure. When I’m…

    “There are two types of countries in this world. Those who use the metric system, and those that have been to the moon.” Although I can’t remember where I found this quote, it immediately popped into my head when I thought of the metric system in the US. Like many ideas now a days, this one is highly debated. In fact since the time of Thomas Jefferson in 1789, the use of the metric system in the US has been a very popular idea.

    If you are closer than that to me, I am going to feel very uncomfortable until you move. I believe it is only ever okay to share your personal space if you are good friends or dating that person. I have been asked to make a short list of my personal proximity rules. I had no trouble listing off five different personal proximity rules, but once I went back and reread them, I almost sounded crazy/snobby to myself. Number one on my list is if there are other seats in the room, don’t sit right next…

    However, some aspects of everyday life are not what you would expect from a nation of such importance. Firstly, the US customary units of measure, derived from the ancient imperial units, are still in use today in the US, Liberia and Burma. This non-coherent system of measures is difficult, even for the people raised in the country itself. My brother Victor Salas, 13, explains that although he was taught the imperial system at school, he would rather use the metric system, for its simplicity and…
