The Ultimate Beginners Guide to Cannabis
In 2017 I didn't even know how to use a lighter. I had tried cannabis in passing at parties, but I knew nothing about the plant. The stoners mentioned words like "cannabinoids," "terpenes," "THC," and "concentrate." I just smiled and nodded. I knew there was a process in deciding how my group of friends got high. Honestly, I was content with just experiencing the high and leaving the other stuff to the professionals.
This Piece of Danish Advice Will Change Your Winters Forever
I live in an area that's habitually gloomy all winter. The cold weather and lack of sun can get to the psyche. Luckily, the Danish have already solved my problem and have been using it for centuries to battle brutal winters in Denmark.
What is the Difference Between Passive and Active Voice?
I remember periodically throughout grade school; a teacher would mention passive voice. I never understood the difference between passive voice and active voice and always seemed to naturally form my sentences passively.

The Forgotten People: A Tale of Two CitiesSecond Place in Beyond the Vote Challenge
I arrived in Portland, Oregon, on a warm July morning. I marveled at its beauty and looked in awe at all there was to explore. My fourth story shiny apartment was perfect, and I bubbled with the anticipation of a new start.
I saw them tonight. I stood outside our window in the crunchy dead leaves, curling my fingers around the window sill. They met warm wax, tingling, and burning at my fingertips. She had placed a candle on the window, indeed a romantic gesture for their infidelity. I peered inside.
Savage Mode II Album Review
“Great men with great ideals can be separated by hundreds or even thousands of miles and still be in the same place. They can be years or even generations apart in age. And yet, somehow, find themselves on the exact same page. When these men join forces to put the focus of reaching the same goals... they are not two, but one. Instead of simply adding one's common attributes to another's, they somehow tend to multiply all attributes of both. Whether from St. Louis or East Atlanta. Whether from a savage land or a booming metropolis. Whether they are two or two billion, the greatest their numbers could ever become, is to truly become one. I now present to you SAVAGE MODE II." Morgan Freeman

How to Make the Most Out of Your Study TimeSecond Place in Brain Power Playlist Challenge
In today’s world, hustle is encouraged, and ”working hard” is taken to an extreme. Every day, people are overextending themselves. Working three jobs, taking twenty credit hours. We all share a running joke of not sleeping and guzzling coffee to get more work done. We crouch over our laptops, phones, tablets, or documents, exerting all of our effort to meet deadlines. Now that we're confined to our homes, it seems more challenging than ever to get motivated and stay focused.
Strawberry Guava Strain Review
Strawberry Guava sounds decadent just by the name. This strain is the love child of Strawberry Banana and Papaya, which yields a fruity terpene profile. The taste and smell are very tropical, which is usually reserved to Sativas. However, Papaya genetics make it an indica leaning hybrid- suiting my preferences.

Dear Etta: Read When you Need a Reminder of my LoveFirst Place in Best Friends Challenge
Dear Etta; Nothing in this world is promised. I could die tomorrow, and I could not rest peacefully without creating this tribute to you. It's a difficult task to write about someone so hard to define. Some things I will only be able to say to you through print. I hope you'll read this after we've been married for fifty years and things seem too tense. Maybe you think I don't care or don't realize what I have. I hope you'll read this when you have anxiety or when you feel sad, or maybe when you feel like I'm far away.

The Crest Hill Diner
On the corner of 3rd and Wilson, sits the Crest Hill Diner. It is a long-standing single room joint that always buzzes with life. The area used to be the picture of affluence. However, the once glistening new buildings, are now cracked, abused, and crumbling.
