This is my favorite photo because I love the contrast of the director to the band, and how the back of his shirt says "Spartan Bands", which gives even more context into what is happening. The black shirt against the white band is incredibly pleasing. I also love how you see the back of the directors...

Out of the window to her right, the sky is a vibrant blue, and the clouds look almost as if they could cushion a serious fall. Her heart begins to race at the thought of the new experiences that awaited her after the plane lande...

Like when Mufasa died by a buffalo stampede just to save his cub Simba. It doesn’t only show the life of the african wilderness, it has the best soundtrack of a...

No. 1: Realistic Fiction Although we tend to use books to escape reality, I find it quite interesting to find books that mirror situations I go through myself. Whether it be from the general pains of being a teenager to the dynamics of any relationship— platonic or not—, the way authors can ...
