    What causes hearts to race and adrenaline to pump? For me, it is the four by eight-hundred-meter race; this is especially true when it is the state meet. My sophomore year of indoor track was one to remember. I was on a team with three sisters; Kaitlyn, Lindsey, and Lauren. We trained from the beginning of cross country season in the fall, all the way through to indoor track in the winter. We worked every day after school.

    A fresh breeze blew over a natural park in Mahomet, Illinois and ruffled the grass as I haul the unopened tent towards my destination. There was a lot of chatter, and even more excitement, but no one spoke of the odds of success in the great task ahead. We set up the tent and wait. We were waiting for the moment that we would be called, the moment where we would be asked to attempt the task we have been striving forward to achieve for the last few months. Except for me. I will have to be in just

The novel is about two gangs/groups that live in Rural, Oklahoma, the Greasers and the Socials. The Socs are the more affluent and often times referred to as the ‘West-side rich kids’, and the Greasers, are the less fortunate gang.

    Government organizations often use symbols to portray their power or military strength. Writers also use symbols to convey a message to the reader. In his novel Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses symbols to help readers track the loss of civility of the boys. The fire is both a symbol of hope and the reckless behavior of the boys. The first fire is built to signal ships for their rescue; it symbolizes hope here. Once the fire is burning brightly, the boys “paused to enjoy the freshness of [the

    As odd as it may sound to have a favorite day that isn’t either Saturday or Sunday, it turns out mine has always been Wednesday. I love the way it’s spelled, and it’s just so fun to pronounce it phonetically: “Wed-nes-day.” I find it interesting how it’s derived from the Old English word, “day of Woden,” Woden actually being the Norse god, Odin, being often seen in various Marvel comics and movies. I’ve always loved Wednesday in regards to it’s placement in relation to the school week. Mondays are
