  • Lukas: A Short Story Of A Zombie Girl

    involves me using my imagination and thinking that everyone around me was a zombie and I was disguise as a zombie moving through the crowd. The downside was getting into the museum; I thought I was going to have another panic attack. When Lukas and I were walking around the entrance I happened to lose sight of Lukas, and that’s when everything went downhill. I started yelling his name, and looking for him but I couldn’t find him. I almost just sat down and cried until my knight in shinning armor appeared to me and hugged me from behind. He managed to calm me down and we walked hand in hand to through the museum. I enjoyed looking at the different art and archaeology from Egypt and even some modern art. Our next stop is the Oxford Castle. The trip to Oxford Castle was amazing because there was rarely any person. There was Lukas, and I and 2 other couples walking around the area we were in. The building was blinding, this was my first time there so I had never seen anything like it. The old fashion furniture is glorious and the small tour that we took was really interesting. Two places down, two more to…

    For my photoethnography project, I decided to observe local dive bar Frank & Marlee’s in Oxford, Mississippi. Frank and Marlee’s hosts a special every Tuesday called “Taco Tuesday” and offers dollar tacos, as well as eight-dollar margarita pitchers.

    Age has always been an issue of mind over matter. Just as age is not limited by how one looks or feels, imagination does not either. It is often the case that age limits imagination, but that is not the true. No one can blame themselves for wanting that sense of creativity to live within for as long as possible, which is exactly how Alice felt throughout her journey. In The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll uses references to his own past, Alice’s change in size, and imagery to…

  • Oxford Capacity Essay

    I’M sat at a wooden desk answering multiple choice questions with a pencil, occasionally erasing my answers and colouring in a different circle. No, this isn’t a exam, although the rows of shiny books and touchscreen information movies might suggest we were in a particularly well-funded private school. “Is your life a constant struggle for survival?” the paper asks. “Do you get occasional twitches of your muscles, when there is no logical reason for it?” “Is your voice monotonous rather than…

  • Scientology's Oxford Capacity Analysis

    “Free Personality Testing – Come This Way!” implores the sign outside Scientology’s Castlereagh Street headquarters in Sydney. The interior is what you’d get by blending a holistic healing centre with the control-deck of the Starship Enterprise. Images of erupting volcanoes, light-pierced landscapes, and Egyptian-looking Scientology symbols evoke a peculiar science-fiction-meets-self-help vibe. Zipping towards me, a uniformed female attendant offers help, and soon I’m looking down at…
