Why Do Good Things Happen?

In senior year, I was working on a teen dystopian novel called "Rubble" that included the characters discussing Biblical matters. I wish I could finish that book, but I wrote it during physics, chemistry, and biology classes, and there's no way I could remember all the weird sciency stuff I was planning on putting in it. I do think it's interesting how I wrote about a lockdown, and people not wanting to listen to the government to keep them safe. Hmm...Pandemic predicted? Anyway. Hope you enjoy! Comment below if you might want to read more of this incomplete work.

On Profit and Poverty

“The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.”Proverbs‬ ‭21:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬ Well, isn’t this quote a gem. I should actually frame this one for my wall in my imaginary office. I think I might be the queen of haste. A lot of the times I don’t care if something… Continue reading On Profit and Poverty

Story: Why the poles are cold

Once upon a time in a far away land there were three beautiful princesses named Azur, Casser, and Hayden. Hayden and Casser were horrible, mean princesses who wreaked revenge on any maidens whom they thought were prettier than them, so most of the kingdom was in constant misery.

Keys to the Point of No Return

What kind of a future is pop culture entertainment and advertising media hacking out for us right now? Can there even be a future for a humanity that strives to be so shallow? (Sultana Usafali). The result of lies is more lies, and ultimately reality is the bowling ball that knocks deceptions over like pins. Those who were clinging to the pins and making them the center of their world go down too. Lies and liars are swept away. In my opinion, media effects on self-image today are the result of a long-tended, carefully perfected brainwashing ploy that in the end will doom the world.

Streetwise

"Jesus doesn't care about political correctness!" he was saying, his voice clear and convicting despite his blatant discomfort. "Everyone keeps saying that his message and anything that has to do with the Bible could be offensive to people, and that's why Christmastime is no longer Christmastime, but the 'Holidays'. It's why they teach Evolutionism in schools and universities, and not one word can even be mentioned about the true creation of the universe and everything in it!"

Hades by Alexandra Adornetto

Even though [Arakiel's] virtuous displays are few and far between, they occur enough to make Lucifer wonder whether his brother has gone soft. Lucifer only intended to start a war, not a silly romance between an angel and a demon. He orders Bethany to be burned at the stake in front of an audience of demons and lost souls, but not even hellfire can destroy the young angel.

The Deadliest Thing About Cigarettes

Although it is illegal for youth and children to purchase cigarettes, the rules about whether or not they can use them are quite fuzzy. Even at my school, the principal’s only requirement is that students only smoke in designated areas. Everybody knows that kids are doing it and that it will have heavy impact on them in the future, yet what can someone do if they witness a youth smoking what they cannot legally obtain? If the items are contraband, what is being done to ensure that youth cannot use them?

An Army of One

Berger is Joseph’s wretched counterpart. Instead of being celebrated and honoured by society for his work, Berger was met with hostility and ridicule. Raphael Ginzberg, who worked with Berger, comments as follows in 1949: “There can be no doubt but that Berger was the sole creator of electroencephalography. He let nobody into the secret of his investigation. What he achieved, he achieved by his individual effort.”
