    Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories Summer Days & Summer Nights is the first anthology I’ve ever read. I didn’t know what to expect, all I know is I’m not a short-story person. Fortunately, it turned out better than what I anticipated it to be. For me, it’s split into three categories. There are four stories that struck me, and gripped me, followed by four stories that are ordinary, but doable, while the remaining four stories doesn’t belong to this collection. 1. Head, Scales, Tongue, Tale by Leigh Bardugo – 3 stars This have the same story telling as The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, except I like the former much better. It’s a combination of contemporary mythology in a small town country. 2. The End of Love by Nina Lacour…

True, many interpret love differently, however its existence is constant even long after its ending. Dan and Shay’s song, “Summer of 19 You and Me”, differs from Lord Byron’s poem, “When We Two Parted”, in rhetorical elements and both poems express separate romantic situations. However, while the two entities are very different, the sustained presence of…

    naturally to them, they could read through pages and pages without the slightest flaw. This made me question if there was something wrong with me or if I would ever be able to read as elegantly as others seemed too.

I was determined to start fifth grade and not be afraid of when it was my turn to read out…

Every year in elementary school, my class would go on a field trip to the zoo. This was the one field trip I consistently looked forward to each year. It gave me the chance to…

    I walked out of the bathroom, tears still wet on my face. “Brooke! Are you alright?” one of my friends asked. I was better at that moment than I have been in almost a year. In the summer of 2015, which was the same year I started high school, ballet was the center of my life. Two of my closest friends and I attended to an intense summer program for over a month. We were constantly together dreaming of future careers in ballet. In our free time we watched videos of the New York City Ballet. I…
