The Symphony of Diversity was the best orchestra concert I have attended. It highlighted different cultures from all over the world, and each piece was carefully selected to fit a common theme of coming together and sharing music coming from different cultures.

Life’s Imitation of Art: ‘La Bohème’

Hickory Ridge High School might be one of the saddest places I have ever been.  It doesn’t have nearly enough windows to suit its size, its labyrinthine parking lot is nearly impossible to navigate and the inside is dull and lifeless.

The Power of Lies
