Dave Made A Maze

Dave Made A Maze

Last week, I watched the movie “Dave Made a Maze”. And Loved It. (Capitalization added for greater effect) Nowadays, movies have a hard time being original. It’s tough to find anything worth watching that isn’t a remake or a sequel. (That’s my humble opinion, please don’t hurt me) But not this movie. “Dave Made a Maze” is a breath of fresh air. Its creativity and uniqueness are captivating while its commitment to its own absurdity is flawless. While you can…

Family Weekend

Family Weekend

“We must abolish the fish people!” My family came down to spend the day with me this past weekend. Saturday consisted of celebrations, catching up, and plenty of laughter; all of the things that usually happen with my family. I have to say that it was much needed. In the few weeks of being back at school, I have already fallen into a monotonous routine of class and time at home. For me, routine is extremely helpful with getting outside…

Sleepy Students

Sleepy Students

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #9 Sleep Like I said previously, your health needs attention, and rest is a part of that. Our brains don’t work as hard when sleep deprived – the body needs time to reboot and rejuvenate. Between last minute papers, social life, and work, I know it’ll be hard to incorporate sleep into your schedule. But I can’t stress enough how important it is to get as much rest as possible. Whether that’s at the “right…

The College Menu

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #8 Don’t Forget to Feed Your Body Its cliché but nourishing your body to learn really does make a difference. School can get busy, along with the rest of life. But don’t forget that your health needs attention as well. Your brain doesn’t function at its finest if its preoccupied with restlessness or hunger. So, to keep your body feed is really important. I should point out though that Doritos, Mountain Dew, and Poptarts will…

A Heavier Work Load

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #7 Prepare for the work load When they tell you in high school that the work load will be heavier in college, they aren’t joking, haha.

I’ve come to realize that it’s not so much more homework per say, its more detailed and larger assignments or projects. Therefore, don’t be too…

The Maze Within: A Poem

The Maze Within: A Poem

The maze within The poor boy’s head, No time to sleep, Can’t find a bed Two lefts, a right, Straight through another door, Spinning round and round An endless tour Help me, help me His shouts and pleas, A shroud of darkness Meet his fallen knees Begging for silence Searching for hope All while mustering The courage to cope Constantly looking To make his pain known, The poor, lost boy Thinks he’s all alone

Rough Draft

Rough Draft

What is my purpose here? Why am I alive today? Is it to work in an office for the rest of my life? Is it to conform to society’s standards? Why does my life have to fit everyone else’s? Why do I compare myself to everyone else? I don’t want my life to be the same. I want my life to be different. I want my life to be unique. I want my life to mean something. I want my…

Community Atmosphere

Community Atmosphere

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #6. Prepare for the atmosphere The atmosphere at community college is different than campus-living college; in a sense that you won’t be surrounded by students and classmates 24/7. At community college when you go home, you’re not in a school environment anymore, and you’re not surrounded by other students who need to get school work done as well. And since the outside environment is different, you must be able to focus on your own. To…
