Sit there. Look here. Stop moving. And please, don’t lick that. Growing up as an aspiring photographer has been an adventure. From constructing makeshift bedroom studios and growing slowly from disposable, to point-and-shoot, to DSLR cameras, I have tackled obstacle after obstacle. But the bigg...

We could hear the band in the hallway and the loud chatter of the crowd, a bunch of eighth-graders laughing at some joke as we found...

I hate how I wake up with a groggy feeling every morning, knowing that I’ll be dozing off during an important lecture sometime during the day and will not understand what’s going on in that class for the next few days. I hate how consistently sunny the weather can be when I’m stuck inside a sc...
