  • Empathy Essay On Bullying

    I’ve had a lot of experience with bullies – most of my middle school experience was spent locked in an epic, emotionally-scarring battle of the ages against their kind. My case wasn’t nearly as extreme as Nadin’s, fortunately, but it took its toll in a different way. It was mostly non-physical harassment for me, with very light physical harassment whenever teachers weren’t looking (like tripping me up in the hallway, or prodding me with pencils/rulers whenever I sat within pointy-object range).…

  • Spider Man Heroism

    Death is a common plot twist in superhero comics, and even A-Listers like Batman and Superman aren't immune to it. Spidey himself dealt with being dead for a couple weeks during "The Other" crossover several years ago. So why did the announcement of Superior Spider-Man garner such controversy? Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that Peter Parker wasn't just being killed off, but that his body was being stolen by one of his greatest villains. The ignominy of it all was too much to bear.…

An outline of a gun temporarily appears as he moves towards me. "Ohhh... I thought that there was a nice view here. Lex must have been confused." I sigh, quiet comedically. "Thanks for the warning."

However, in Andreas Malm’s article, “The Anthropocene Myth”, Malm implores readers to think contrarily…

  • Aliens: Movie Analysis

    1. The first time that I can recall encountering monsters, and heroes in popular culture is an unusual one, but none the less very powerful for me. It was when I first saw the film Aliens. That might not seem too weird, except that I watched it when I was in fourth grade. It was both a movie that was fascinating and repellent at the same time. It was fascinating for the world that it built, and these larger than life characters, that were throughout the movie. Yet for the same reason it was…
