- Vignette of my new house
This was the day I knew my life was going to be changed forever. I was only 7 years old, and it was the first time that I saw my new house. It barely resembled a place I wanted to live, with nothing on the walls and a floor that looked like it would collapse at any moment. This wasn\'t going to hold my family back from making this house our home. Its basement, small and dark, only contained reminders of the previous owner. The kitchen only contained enough appliances to keep a person alive. We k...

Texting vs. Calling

A phone call transmits the same message as sound waves. Both of these mediums have drawbacks. The texts, for example, make it impossible to use tone, volume, and other variables of voice to gauge the sender¡¯s mood. This is particularly true when a sarcastic message is sent via text. There...
