On page 155 of Jeanette Walls’ memoir, Glass Castle, Walls describes how after the family settles down in Welch, she and her brother Brian decide to make the best of the situation they are in. Ninety-three Little Hobart Street is a “dinky thing perched high up off the road on a hillside...painted white a long time ago, but...turned a dismal gray” (Walls 150). Jeanette and Brian scavenge a shovel and a pickaxe. Then, the two build the foundation for the the Glass Castle of their dreams behind the dingy home. After a month, their father orders the children to fill the foundation with garbage.

Elijah Peirce was a carver and the son of a slave. He learned how to carve when he was very young when his father gave him a pocketknife. His uncle was the inspiration for all of his carvings because he was the one who taught him how to carve. In the early 1970’s Peirce’s name became known when a Student in the Graduate Program at The Ohio State University found his art at a YMCA exhibit. Today, a statue of Elijah Peirce proudly sits on the campus of Columbus State Community College on the very street his barber shop sat.
Rita and Keiji fought each other to see who would get out of the loops. “A hole gaped in Rita’s jacket… her battle axe trembled...the bullet toy rolled out of her hands,” Rita sacrificed herself so that Keiji could live. Rita never knew him for more than 24 hours, but Keiji felt like she knew her his whole life. “A small blue-green colony of mold floated on the coffee and as the bullet rolled in my hand, I pressed the cup to my lips and drank.” Throughout the whole book the only things that have changed are Rita and Keiji, yet somehow a lot more feels different. Keiji lost the best friend he never had, and only has a mug of coffee and a bullet to remember her by.

After every corpse entered my compost pile, its cause of death was burned into my memory so that I never made the same mistake twice. However, I really wanted to keep my plants alive for longer than two months, so I decided to get some professional help. One day, I went to the TLC Donation Garden (TLCDG), which is a place that grows food for the BritVil food pantry. Originally, I planned on going to get
From 2001 to today, Fall Out Boy has become one of the iconic teenage boy-bands. If you were to start playing it in a room full of females, there’s a 80% chance someone would start screaming. The legacy began in Illinois as a hard-core rock band, where Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, and Joe Trohman (they went through a series of drummers before deciding on Andy Hurley) stood in Joe’s garage fishing for old, battered instruments. There they created their first album, Take This to Your Grave. Next, they produced From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, and the flop of Folie a Deux, before they went on hiatus just to come back three years later and create Save Rock and Roll.
When introduced with this assignment, I instantly wanted to picked my parents due to them being of an older generation. However, they’re two hours away so instead I begged my significant other, Codey, to be my guinea pig.

Finally, we ended with various arm stretches while walking back to our vehicle with a debate of who was showering first based on who sweated the most.
